So, quarantine is starting to get old.
I'm not going to lie - in the beginning it had the feel of a little stay-cation, and since I haven't taken time off in while, it felt nice. But I noticed more recently I've started getting bored, lazy, and gaining weight! I realized that there is a certain physical and psychological impact of being on lockdown. After a couple of weeks, it becomes a new normal. It's hard to stay motivated, and it's easy to slip into couch potato mode. IT'S DEPRESSING! I've found that the best way to avoid that quarantine malaise is to keep a schedule of daily activities and goals that are both mentally and physically engaging. For example, I've created a daily schedule out of the 5 tasks below and it's helped me stay focused, disciplined, and healthy. Add these to your daily routine and stay out of that lockdown rut!
1. TAKE A FREE COURSE: Expand your mind! I discovered coursera.com and I was instantly hooked. It's a big library of free online courses taught by some big time professors from schools like Yale, UPenn, etc. The courses are broken down into 10 minute video segments so you can learn at your own pace. So far I've taken courses on financial markets, personal branding, and new technologies in business, all for FREE!
5. COOK: Man I love cooking. That's no secret. Being home all the time has forced me to get creative with what I cook and how I cook it. Also, with less frequent shopping trips, I'm forced to dig deep into the pantry and dig out some "old-but-still-good" ingredients. The key is to be creative, keep it healthy, and use all groceries wisely so nothing is wasted.
