Missing the gym? There are many fitness challenges you can try out from home, or online. Stay healthy at home.

You can do yoga early in the morning for some time and workout. It will help you to destress and stay healthy during the lockdown. There are plenty of yoga studios streaming life online. Similarly, physical activity will help you sleep better, lift your mood even if you are stuck in the same room.
Arrange a house party
It’s a weekend, and you want to party with friends?
Do it virtually. Set up your room for a party. Turn on the music, disco lights, add your friends into a group video chat so you can get together for a drink or chit chat and have a good time.
Cook something new
You can find great recipes online. I would suggest YouTube, there are plenty of channels to learn recipes.
Are you bored?
Do a virtual meetup. You can use Facetime, Whatsapp, Instagram live etc. for group calling. Recently we found many Instagrammers bloggers use Instagram live to virtually meet their friends and showcase their talents. Artists go Insta live with their DJ setup right from their home, singers sing to cheers their fans, friends meet their friends online. You can also host online meetup events.
At the end, I would say that it is okay if you can’t go out. Just stay at home, do things that entertain you, learn and teach others. Stay Safe!
