Coronavirus has taken the world by storm. People are locked up in their houses for more than a year now. Although some people have taken the opportunity as a much-need break, others are frustrated.
The question is, what to do when in lockdown? How to make life more exciting in the pandemic? Yes, we miss the restaurants and amusement parks, but do you know how dangerous dining in a crowd can be?
As a matter of fact, you can still contract the coronavirus even if you’re vaccinated. Thus, dining out and spending time in amusement parks are not wise choices. Still, you need not worry.
Here I have a list of things that you must try in order to make your life more exciting while staying safe during the pandemic. Have a look:

Hunting is a fan-favorite outdoor activity. It’s practiced by various aristocrats, world leaders, and educationists around the world. The reason hunting is safe in the pandemic is that coronavirus isn’t common among animals.
Thus, hunting in the woods, away from city life and huge crowds is the best way to enjoy the pandemic. All you need to do is get the required hunting equipment, including bow and arrows, a rifle, riflescopes, and a pair of binoculars, and hit the woods.
It’s a great activity that will teach you a lot in life. From patience to perseverance, hunting brings along a number of important lessons of life.
One of the most productive ways you can spend time in a pandemic is by learning arts and crafts. Art is a skill. It speaks a language of its own. And what I personally love about it is the fact that you don’t need to study arts in a college or university, you can simply learn it by practice.
Take a canvas, a few colors, and a paintbrush. Start with abstracts as sketching and landscape paintings are usually complicated for a beginner. When choosing the paint, I would suggest you buy acrylics. They come in matt form; therefore, they’re easier to handle.
Oil paints are great as well, but they’re not for beginners. The reason being, oil paints are difficult to manage due to their consistency. Also, oil paints have a distinct odor that you may not like if you haven’t tried them before.
Camping is truly an amazing activity. It’s one of the few outdoor activities that bring along something for everyone, be it children, young adults, or elderly people. The best part of the story is that camping is not too hectic. It gives you ample time to relax and bond with your loved ones, which is the ultimate goal.
If your budget allows, I would suggest you go camping at Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada, Hossa National Park in Finland, Mount Cook National Park in New Zealand, Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, or Sardinia in Italy. In case you’re short on budget, I suggest you start saving money today.
That’s right, guys. A number of investment websites now allow you to save a considerable amount of money in a short period of time. Moneyeh.ca is the best investment website in Canada by far, so you must give it a try.
One thing that everyone hates about the pandemic is that recreational spots like cinemas, restaurants, and amusement parks are not safe anymore. It’s a virus that’s causing the destruction, so you never know what will happen next.
I miss going to cinemas. It’s something I really enjoy and due to the pandemic, I now watch all the films in my living room. I must say it’s incredibly boring, but that’s not the end of the story.
The fun part is that I’ve now arranged a mini outdoor cinema at my terrace. Yes, I recently bought a projector and a large screen. Watching a movie has never been better. I sit on the terrace every weekend with my siblings, get all my favorite snacks, and watch a movie. It’s such a relief from the anxious routine these days.
Well, you shouldn’t restrict yourself to just a movie. An outdoor barbecue is also an amazing idea to spend some quality time with family amid the pandemic. Call your parents and siblings over and arrange a super barbecue night.
All you need to have is a portable barbecue grill, lean meat, and a few spices. If you’re not an experienced cook, I suggest you purchase a few recipe books as well. They’ll help you in preparing some delicious grilled recipes.
If you’re into cooking at all, you can order something from a restaurant nearby. The purpose is to gather everyone together and spend some precious moments.
Last but not least, the pandemic has given us an opportunity to channel our hidden skills, so why not start reading? They say education without knowledge is useless. Do you know how to become knowledgeable? Well, the best way is to read.
It’s a great habit that can teach you a lot about different things in life. The more you’ll read, the more knowledge you’ll gain. And the best thing is that it will make your life easier. You will know how to live, what to ignore, and how to manage everyday life.
Start with reading short articles, journals, and fiction. Once you develop the habit of reading, you can move towards bigger deals, including research articles, studies, critical analysis, political findings, and more. You may not realize it now, but it will benefit you a lot in life.
I reckon that staying indoors all day, every day can be frustrating, but it isn’t the end of the world. The pandemic will soon be over, so use this time as a golden opportunity to explore your inner, sensual self. Consider the tips and tricks mentioned above and enjoy this time to the fullest. Good day, everyone!
