It doesn’t really matter if according to John Hopkins University coronavirus map only 4 out of 100 people with coronavirus can expect a fatality. You have to stay at home as that is what every health department in every country around the world is recommending. In this guide, we will take a look at some of the ways in which you can stay at home and not get sick with boredom. In other words, this is the guide for people who want to keep entertainment while they wait out the coronavirus.
The first piece of advice would be to try and do nothing. Yes. Sometimes, doing nothing and sitting for a while can clear up your mind in ways you would never expect. For some, just sitting down and thinking about non-work related things brings all the benefits of expensive therapy.
Of course, this is not the first time people have been told to stay at home because of dangers outside. Just a few short years ago when the California wildfires caused the quality of air in the state to rise to dangerous levels, people eventually did find ways to keep busy and entertain themselves while at home.
Here are the best 3 ways to keep yourself entertained that don’t involve you sitting down and doing nothing.
If you have been putting off watching movies because of work, now would be the perfect time to catch up on them. Of course, you are going to have to renew your subscription to either Amazon Prime Video or Netflix. Academy Award-winning movie Parasite, reportedly, is great and you can stream it via Amazon Prime, Vudu and/or Google Play. For Hulu subscribers, it will be available no earlier than April 8.
And if you are in the mood to watch something with your family then you can’t go wrong with Disney Plus that just added Toy Story 4 to the library.
Maybe you want something consistent with the current unsettling times. In other words, horror movies. Believe it or not, watching horror movies can sometimes be consolatory and even cathartic. Modern horror movies do a tremendous job of using made-up fictional scenarios to scare the life out of audiences. There is no doubt that coronavirus sounds scary.
However, for all the fear surrounding the virus, there is absolutely zero chance of zombies rising up and coming to eat us all. That means TV series like the Walking Dead are out. What we want you to watch is Get Out. Or A Quiet Place. Both are horror movies that do not make use of ugly monsters or spirits to scare you.
According to firestickblog.com you can install tons of official and “unofficial” apps on a Firestick and FireTV so you can stream almost anything you want.
Whether a man is a social animal or not isn’t something we’re interested in discussing here. But what research has shown time and time again is that socializing can improve health and longevity. So try and keep in touch with your friends and family. Sometimes, reconnecting with an old friend that you forgot to keep in touch with is a great way to feel good about everything. Yes, this is a perfect time to use phones. Or try out something more modern like Skype and FaceTime. If you have enough time and are willing to put in some effort, then writing a letter or an email message can do wonder as well. Make use of the many social media platforms in positive ways that provide you with thoughtful content. Places like Reddit and Quora are great for finding out more about what your interests and hobbies are.
There is plenty of exercise stuff you can do at home. Pushups are a crowd favorite. You can also try out Yoga without any weird sun salutations. There are many apps and YouTube videos that help you with working out at home. Places like Buzzfeed even have a guide on how to do the best Yoga possible at home.
