As we all are aware that COVID-19 has put a stop to our lives right now. Let's make the best out of the time that we have got due to this. Remember, when you used to live a normal lifestyle, you used to say that “you don’t have enough time”, or that “you can't manage your time” to learn something or to do something new. Well, now you have the time that you have always asked for. So do something productive with this time, because once it is over, you are not getting back the ample amount of free time again. Just make sure that you do not say “I did not do anything new during quarantine”. Because that will show that you've never had a lack of time, it was the lack of discipline that made me do nothing.
I have curated a list of things you can do from the comfort of your homes and make judicious and effective use of your time.
Be it your love for literature or your fascination with the complex domain of psychology, you can explore a number of courses that are available online. These courses are being offered by the leading universities in the world and conducted by distinguished faculty. Learning was never as convenient! In order to pick a course, reflect on your current skill level and aspirations.
The following are popular online learning platforms:
Showcase your creativity
This is an opportunity for you to nurture your creative side. Be it your love for art, cooking or music, you have ample time to hone your creative skills! You may also consider starting a YouTube channel to showcase your skill to the world. Leveraging interactive digital platforms, this is a great chance for you to socialise and create a network of like-minded people.
Learn a new skill
You might be overwhelmed by the repetition of your tedious schedules sitting at home, the Covid-19 outbreak is reminding us to be patient. Finding joy in the simple moments of life can be your take away from this, and you may seize the day by acquiring a new skill sitting at home.

Time to be a teacher
We learn best when we teach others. I am certain that each one of us has a unique skill or talent in a certain discipline, then why should we keep it to ourselves when we can help others improve their knowledge. If you have ever thought about teaching but never had the chance to do it, this is the perfect opportunity for you to embark on this satisfying venture. Create an education channel or upload webinars on any of the several platforms available to reach out to the relevant audiences.
Create your website
Having your own website is an intriguing idea, but you might have given up on this seemingly complex endeavour! Well, it really isn’t. With platforms such as WordPress or Wix, you can create elegant websites with ease. Be it your personal profile or for a small venture you were considering for so long, the only thing to do is to try.
Writing happens to be one of the most important elements of communication. There is always that freedom of expression that writing brings to us. All of us may not be great writers, but that should not stop us from writing and sharing our opinions. Blogging is our way out. Have a recommendation or an opinion to share? Now you have got all the time in the world to start your own blog. From talking about food, travel, ambitions or problems, there is so much you can convey with your blogs.
