Running Out Of #StayAtHome Ideas? Here Are 7 Things To Do To Keep You Sane

We’re a week into the Movement Control Order, and boy, are we feeling bored already. With no outdoor activities to keep us busy, naturally, we’d turn to the digital side to keep us sane. Switching between social media apps, watch Netflix, play computer games – every digital activity we can think of, we’ve done. To tell the truth, going on like this isn’t a fair solution. Skyrocketed screen time will have an adverse effect on our well-being and mental health.

Since we can't switch off technology completely at times like this, our advice is to find balance by including analogue activities into our daily lives. Use this isolation period to your advantage by doing things that contribute to self-betterment. For example, finally signing up that course you’ve been pushing to next year or take time to bond with family. You’ll know what to do after reading our list of suggestions that are mostly sans screen.

When was the last time your whole family had their picture taken? Back when you were still wearing diapers? That’s long overdue! Have everybody dressed up (or down if you prefer casual photos) and pose at the living room or garden. Trust us, you’ll get a heck lot of goofy pictures ’cause everybody’s comfortable in a familiar setting. You won’t get that effect at a photography studio. Make sure that aside from family portraits, take individual ones too. It’d be hard to have everyone gather at a same place and same time once this partial lockdown’s over.

We’ve included some examples of photography inspo you might want to use:
