Ways to enjoy at home during the COVID-19 lockdown
Social distancing has become the buzzword these days. It means you need to stay away from people, do not socialize, do not mingle with friends, just stay home with your family. Why is this necessary? This is necessary because the corona virus is infecting everybody. Coronavirus or Covid19 which originated in China has spread throughout the world and since we do not have any medicine to cure it, the best possible option is to prevent it. The only way to prevent the virus is to stay indoors for 3 weeks or so, so that the virus does not spread.
Many countries around the world are practicing social distancing and some countries like India have locked down totally to prevent the virus spread. Though it is easy to speak about social distancing, practicing it by staying at home is really difficult. Even if you have stocked on supplies it becomes difficult to stay at home for a prolonged period. Staying cooped inside the home for days together can take its toll mentally. But to stay safe, it is necessary to stay home but you can combat the mental toll that it is bound to take by making the stay at home fun and interesting.
