Video: 10 Indoor Activities To Do While In Containment
This Monday, March 16, the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron, declared a 15-day lockdown in order to curb and limit the spread of COVID-19 in France. Nurseries, schools, colleges, universities, bars and restaurants… everything is closed except pharmacies and food stores. But how do we make the most of the quarantine period that forces us to stay at home? So, after having explained to you how to protect yourself from the coronavirus and reduce the risk of contamination, the editorial staff moves on to leisure activities and more specifically to indoor activities to be preferred so as not to get bored!
Playing sports, painting, reading a good book, cooking, playing with the children or simply detoxifying their lifestyle… everyone adapts to this period of health crisis in their own way. And there is no shortage of alternatives to entertaining outings! Let's see what to do at home in times of isolation.
Start indoor activities with a good sports training
For those who are used to regularly exercising in the gym, it will be difficult to do without. However, a well-planned workout can be as effective as one done at the gym. What's more, the body will need more mobility during containment. There are countless sports exercises suitable for home training that do not require specific equipment. The elastic training, for example, can be practiced everywhere and has several advantages for the body as for the innate balance.
Practice your cooking skills
Do you like the art of cooking? So take advantage of confinement and devote yourself to your passion! Let your creativity run wild and spoil your family with delicious new dishes. Pamper your figure and start the day with a ketogenic breakfast, followed by a gourmet green spring salad and finally treat yourself to a nice diet dessert!
Do not forget to strengthen the immune system against the coronavirus!
Take care of the big spring cleaning
So, not all indoor activities in your 40s are fun and relaxing. Take advantage of the current situation and take care of the big spring cleaning because at the end of the day, at some point you have to roll up your sleeves and get to work!
Reading is one of the most popular indoor activities
We all have this particular book lying around in the library for years and waiting to be read. So prepare yourself a good cup of coffee and immerse yourself in the fascinating world of literature because "A book is a window through which one can escape," said the famous writer Julien Green. And nothing like a good book to escape reality and psychosis for a few hours. What do you think ?
Learn a foreign language
To benefit even more effectively from social isolation, you can, for example, learn a new language. And thanks to plenty of free mobile apps, this seems like a snap. What's more, learning stimulates cognitive abilities!
Indoor activities in around 40's: a virtual tour of the world's most spectacular museums
Museums, opera houses and theaters are also closed - sad news for those interested in culture and art. Unfortunately, strict measures are essential with regard to the current situation. But we have good news for you! Some of the world's most famous museums offer free online tours. We are talking about the Louvre, the British Museum in London, the MOMA in New York and even the NASA Space Center in Houston. We cannot travel but we can escape intellectually!
Series to catch up?
Here is one of the indoor activities that will not lose its popularity no matter if it is a pandemic or not: watching our favorite series and movies from the comfort of our home! Whether you live alone or are in confinement with your family, watching movies is the ultimate solution to boredom. How about a famous Harry Potter marathon with the kids? And why not also opt for documentaries on history, nature or animals? And all this while enjoying the comfort of your own sofa!
Spring indoor activities: make a pretty decoration yourself
Spring crafts are one of the indoor activities you can do without any worries! So embark on various creative and colorful projects and get ready for the arrival of the most beautiful season. The possibilities here are literally endless and there is something for all tastes and ages. What's more, DIY projects are scientifically proven to promote concentration and creativity, especially in toddlers.
So let your creativity run wild and create all kinds of decorations with your ten fingers! What do you think for example of a DIY spring wreath? Or why not attack the Easter decoration now with a pretty fairy Easter tree? Yes, crafts are fun, colorful, and freshen up our homes!
A beauty session at home
One of the most relaxing indoor activities is to indulge in a day of well-being and relaxation. And why not do it during the confinement period? Take a nice hot bath, light scented candles, taste your favorite wine and indulge in the pleasure! Consider treating the scalp naturally with a homemade hair scrub or pamper your face with a DIY fabric mask. To benefit from flawless skin, don't forget to exfoliate your body to remove dead cells.
While we're at it, let's take a look at two other indoor activities to try: hairstyles and makeup. So now is a good time to resort to those new makeup looks that you wanted to try so hard but couldn't find the time. Learn how to do easy braids and amaze your coworkers and friends after quarantine is canceled.
This is because these procedures are beneficial not only for the body but also for the mind as they have a calming effect, which is always welcome especially during the current situation.
File an income tax return
Filing your income tax is always postponed because at the end of the day you have more enjoyable or more important things to do. But considering the current situation, we urge you to use your time at home and take care of this tedious task. It might also help you better organize your expenses so that you can afford trips and vacations after quarantine is over.
Feel free to make a list of all the concerts, football matches and other events you want to attend. Plan your next vacation with peace of mind and even organize your books and spices in alphabetical order.
Although the situation with the coronavirus is constantly worsening, the lockdown gives us the opportunity to stay with ourselves and think hard. Have you achieved your goals and dreams in the past year? What do you want to change in your lifestyle? So stay home, think about the future, and don't fall into psychosis.
