10 things to do during the quarantine

We give you some ideas that you can take advantage of during this quarantine

Until next April 11, the Government has decreed the State of Alarm, which translates into a state of isolation and quarantine due to the coronavirus until further notice. Citizens must act responsibly and stay in our homes as long as possible. We know that despair and boredom can come to us at any time, that’s why we leave you some plans so that you can carry these days in the best possible way:

1. It’s time to read

Frankenstein’s mother, Casas y Tumba s, A Corazón Abierto … are just some of the great books that 2020 has brought us. Reading is always a good pastime that will also allow you to forget for a moment everything that is happening. Travel to another world during this coronavirus quarantine in a way that only literature can allow you.

You can also read some of our ebooks on labor, tax, compliance, etc.

2. Take that course you never have time for

Training never hurts. Languages, cooking, marketing … surely there is something you would like to know a little more about, whether to complete your resume or simply as a hobby. At the moment countless institutions are offering totally free courses to make these days of confinement more enjoyable. Remember that only online or distance training is allowed, so these will be the modalities for which you can choose.

We provide you free access to our webinars on labor, tax, compliance, and data protection issues.

3. Videocalls

If you miss your friends or family, have a drink or pour yourself a cup of coffee and organize a virtual meeting with whoever you want. You can even look good for the occasion. There are many applications through which to organize, such as Skype, WhatsApp itself, or Google Duo. Without a doubt, it can be a lot of fun.

4. Play sports at home

As a consequence of the coronavirus quarantine to which we have been forced, we can’t leave home to train. YouTube and Instagram have thus become the reference channels to practice all kinds of sports activities without leaving home. Gymvirtual, Blogilates, Revolutionary Fitness, Healthy at home, @Alexia_clark, @ massy. arias, @lorenaonfit, or @powerexplosive are some of the accounts where you can find workouts and exercises of all kinds.

5. Games for the whole family

There are countless classic games that you can play without having to buy anything: the broken phone, the famous Pictionary, tongue twisters, chained words, hide and seek, stop the pencil… On the Internet, you will find many easy ideas to execute. A fun option is that the winner can decide who does the dishes, clears the table, or makes the food. And we will always have the fun pillow battle.

6. Discover new series and movies

With platforms like Netflix, HBO, Sky, or Amazon Prime Video, getting bored is almost impossible. Some of the most popular series names for this year are Sabrina, the 5th season of Narcos or Outlander, The Good Place, the Dracula miniseries, Hunters, or Sex Education, among many others. Help yourself to a good bowl of popcorn and enjoy the episodes of your favorite series without regrets. As for movies, it is time to see all those films that you were waiting for the Oscars: The Infinite Trench, Pain and Glory, Parasites, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Marriage Story, Joker, Rocketman, Toy Story 4, among other.

7. Take up that project that you had parked

Write a book, set up your own website, create a blog, plan that dream trip for when all this happens (because of #EsteVirusLoParamosUnidos) … anything that comes to your mind and for which you never have time. Now is the perfect time to unleash your imagination.

You can also take the opportunity to consider changing to that profession that you have always liked. To do this, you can search for information and exits through the Internet or you can investigate Official Certificates of Professionalism that fit that professional profile.

8. Prepare for Marie Kondo’s visit

Okay, it’s not even remotely possible that Marie Kondo is coming to visit you. But it may be a good idea to let yourself be inspired by it and take advantage of all these days to tidy up that drawer of papers, throw away those expired cans that you have at the back of your kitchen cupboard and give your closet a good look. Having everything organized and in order will give you peace of mind to spend the days you have left at home.

And if what you like are arts and crafts, you can always take the opportunity to learn some decoration and interior design or tailoring and practice it at home.

9. Kitchen

Sometimes the rush leads to a somewhat boring diet. Being at home has its advantages. That’s why one of the things you can do during the coronavirus quarantine is to cook. Seasonal stews, more elaborate salads, healthy sweets. The Internet is a recipe book without limits. Take out the cook inside you and give yourself a good tribute.

10. Relax

There are many days ahead of us in this situation, so in addition to looking for activities to stay entertained, it is also important to leave a little time to relax. Enjoying doing nothing can also be enjoyable. Give yourself time to think, to reflect on everything that this situation makes you miss and value, to enjoy a good song, a good nap, or fill in sudoku and self-defined ones. We will return to normal soon and you will surely miss a moment of inactivity.
