Things to Do at Home During a Pandemic – COVID-19 and 6 Ideas

The coronavirus pandemic is an unprecedented time which is unlike anything that we have experienced in recent years. We have been confined to our own homes for the benefit of not just ourselves but the rest of the world as well. Here are some of the simple things you can do.


Share Something Hopeful and Positive

Many hotels and resorts are posting content on their social media that can make you feel like you are almost there. If you are the type of person who loves to travel but can't during this time, share pictures and videos of your old travels to Sri Lanka, hotels you stayed at or places you went to. Or write about them on a blog. Your pictures and words could be uplifting and enjoyable to someone else on the internet who can enjoy the experience vicariously through you.


Educate Yourself

There are plenty of online resources where you can learn about the virus and its effect and how scientists, doctors and essential workers are combating it. Learn about your government's response, the response of other countries, learn the numbers and which methods seem to be working in terms of keeping the virus under control. The more you know, the better prepared you'll be.


Get Involved

Getting involved means appreciating the work that first responders, healthcare workers and front liners are doing for the rest of us during this time. You can visit sites like Amnesty International, different programs that focus on sending help to people who have been severely affected by COVID-19 financially. Every little bit of aid counts in ways you couldn't even imagine.


Learn Something New

It's a good time as any to brush up on your knowledge of various things. It doesn't necessarily have to do with your current profession. It could be something that you enjoy or something that you want to know more about. It is important to remember that you should not overtax yourself. You can do as much harm to yourself as you would do good.


Help Others with Social Media

Now more than any other time, people are becoming more dependent on social media and the internet to keep in touch with their loved ones. There may be lots of people, especially the elderly, that don't know how to operate social media or turn on their webcams. You can take an active part in helping them out by teaching them how to operate these apps and the computer and so stay in touch with their loved ones even if they are physically incapable of going to see them.


Visit Your Dream Locations Remotely

To stay positive during this time, it is important to not lose sight of your dreams. If you can't travel to your favourite destination. Visit their website or social media and watch a video or look at pictures. For example, Heritance Hotels Sri Lanka has a comprehensive gallery of pictures of their property as well as social media accounts.
