8 Activities To Do During Quarantine
Gaaahhhh, who else is feeling the urge to just run outside on the street wildly? Because I STRONGLY DO, BUT I am fighting my urge and keeping myself holed up in my house and following our Prime Minister's orders.
I totally get you. This Restricted Movement Order is making us go crazy. You've probably done just about everything in the last 6 days huh.
Dalgona coffee? ✔️
Scroll through Instagram 18 hours a day? ✔️
Facetimed your best friends 5x a day? ✔️
Running out of ideas I see. So might I suggest you 8 new activities for you to do?

2. Yoga/work out
Now you can't really say "Oh I don't have the time" excuse anymore because you're literally stuck at home... doing nothing... I'm linking some videos down below, y'all better watch it. If you can eat 24 hours, you can workout for a while to burn off those calories okay !

4. Complete a puzzle
You might have a 1000pcs puzzle lying around in your house. Don't you think this is a good time to bond with your family members and see each other lose your mind trying to piece all 900+ almost similar blue pieces together? 😂
5. Play indoor games
Now is the perfect time to whip out those board games and enjoy a few long hours with each other. Monopoly usually separates family members and cause tension, Uno is all fun and games, Charades is always fun to see how everyone acts.
6. Listen to podcasts
Here's a few podcasts worth your time!
This is not a traditional career podcast. It's a podcast for people who've looked at their interests to shape the work they do.
Iconic duo Zane & Heath from David Dobrik's Vlog Squad spills all the tea, dramas and what nots about their chaotic lives.

7. Learn a new language
Has Duolingo sent you a notification yet that they miss you? Now is the perfect time to start learning a new language. Whether it be Korean to understand that Kdrama Crash Landing On You or Mandarin to have a secret language with your Chinese friends, it's always good to have another language up your sleeve!
8. Deep clean your room
If your Asian mum hasn't started doing it.............
Flip your whole bed over and vacuum underneath your bed. I know you haven't done it in a while, am I right? Do every inch and corner of your room.
Sort through your clothes and make 3 different piles:
2) Donate to charity
3) Give to extended family members
iii) Books and files
Do the same thing with books and files. If you haven't touched it in more than 6 months, do you really need it?
In hopes everyone is taking the safety measures and listening to our Prime Minister's orders to STAY HOME to help contain the spread of COVID-19. We're all anticipating the brighter days to come and hope we'll only be quarantined until 31st of March 2020. Let's all do our part as a community and stay put at home, only going out when necessary to buy essentials (also only one person is allowed to leave the house to buy).
