Gone are the days when going out for fun was a wise decision. After all, the coronavirus pandemic that has hit the entire world has changed our lives in ways that we never imagined.  However, life must continue as we await scientists and researchers to come to our rescue. That doesn’t mean endangering our lives but rather finding other ways of being happy. This is what this piece is all about. It highlights how to beat the lockdown blues with home activities. Check it out!

Make your own candles.

Now that you most likely have a lot of time to yourself, you better use it to do something constructive. If you love candles, make use of that time to make some. You get to pass the time and, in the end, save a lot of money that you would have used to pay for candles. Equally important, your house becomes cozy due to the light and warmth that comes from these candles. Some are scented, oozing fragrances that can be refreshing and relaxing. All you need is candle-making supplies and a good guide on how to go about it.

Planting and Nurturing a Plant

There is nothing as engaging as nurturing a plant. It requires your attention and cares lest it dries up over time. As you bear the lockdown blue, consider planting one. You can rest assured that you will often notice remarkable progress. From a little seed to a plant that grows to maturity, one must admit that it is a journey. Those who have experienced it before will tell you that it is satisfying to be part of it. You will also play a huge role in making it a success by feeding and watering the plant. Nurturing the plant and watching it grow is enough to eliminate any boredom associated with the lockdown.

Watching a Movie

All work and no play make Jack a dull boy. Once in a while, you deserve a break where all you do is sit down and relax. Watching a movie can take your relaxation to a whole new level. Make sure that you choose the genre that sits well with you. An interesting movie can really make you forget about the lockdown in a heartbeat, no doubt. If your partner can accompany you, well and good hence invite them. It could feel like you are in a theatre all over again, especially if you project it, grab a bucket of popcorn, and use a great music system.

Play a Game

If you are not really a movie person, a game can play the trick. You can opt for video games or board games, depending on your preference.


The bottom line is that you don’t have to get bored simply because of the lockdown. Let it not be all about passing the time but doing things that are rewarding while at it. May it be saving money by making candles, practicing responsibility by nurturing a plan, or having fun with movies and games, ensuring that every second counts.
