The year 2020 hasn’t been very lovely. We’ve lost a lot of lives, hope, and jobs. We’ve gone into quarantining ourselves at home for the safety of ourselves & everyone else around us. Yet we can’t seem to find anything to do, so here are four things to do during the quarantine.
We all love sleeping & we do it all the time, however, studies have shown that typically, teenagers on a normal school night at around 72% do not get the required amount of sleep. Most adults need 7 - 8 hours of sleep while teens need 8 - 10. We all know very well that most if not all of us who are reading DEFINITELY do not get those numbers. Sleep promotes growth, better mental cognition, more positive emotions, boosts the immune system, and even helps burn some calories.
It’s hard enough being cooped up inside. However, we should always find some time to exercise. Exercising promotes a stronger body by strengthening bones and muscles to increase health. It keeps your thinking, learning and judgment skills. Overall a positivity for the mind and body. This is why you should incorporate even a bit of exercise while being in quarantine.
Finding a good book can get you lost for hours. Studies have shown that just a bit of reading can reduce stress, aids sleep, builds your vocabulary, strengthens the brain and more. Giving you a big boost mentally and physically. Taking time away from electronics or reading a school book that you weren’t forced to read.
Many say that they can’t draw. Well, on the contrary to that, anyone can draw. Anything is interpreted as art. Drawing increases self-confidence as you continue drawing, building your own style. It can also drive you to strive for something new, a project to work on, constantly changing, never-ending and always something to improve. It’s also considered very relaxing as it’s a space away from reality.
