But this cycle is never-ending giving you all the more reason to sit down and connect with your family. A quick catch up will refresh you from the daily lockdown routine and also make their day. And it’s not just family but also friends and ex-colleagues who are stuck alone due to the emergency. This is the time to give them a call and support them in the hour of need.
5. Listen to a Podcast
There are numerous podcasts available on music streaming platforms that offer some great content. Be it a murder mystery, romance, storytelling, real-life narratives or comedy, podcasts do it all. While you are busy in some activity like a workout or putting away things around the house, plug in your earphones or put the podcast on speaker. It could be a great stress-reliever in times like the lockdown and also cure the loneliness.
Stay safe and indulge in some indoor activities and watch shows to get rid of the work from home cycle.
