Most activities are shut down: companies are forced to take a rest; families are told to stay in their houses – everyone is encouraged to distance and isolate themselves. While introverted individuals find this as a normal daily routine, extroverts find this restrictive and appalling as it means ceasing to do what they think and believe make them happy and mentally active.
Well, all potential problems have potential solutions if you just keep a proactive approach to everything, and your home is not a prison, to begin with; there are hundreds of activities you can enjoy inside four walls. And what makes it great is that when you have a lawn or a garden, the more activities you can enjoy.
A lawn care service provides an excellent landscape for different activities you can do under quarantine. In this article, we will give you some ideas on how to spend your quarantine more productively.
Your garden is a perfect place to do some work-out as it provides fresh air and good sunlight that boosts up your energy and enthusiasm in doing your workout routine. You can also opt for a gardening activity as a workout substitute as it also effectively burns some calories and cholesterol. Stop opening your fridge looking for food while spending your entire 24 hours a day at rest on your couch or bed.
Play with family or pets
If you feel unmotivated to do the workout, you can still burn some calories while having fun. Play with your siblings or family together with your pets on your lawn. You can set up a cornhole tournament, play frisbee, play jumping rope, or any other games that you can play outside. Playing also boosts your mood and provides a physical workout.
Prepare your garden for spring
Spring is coming, and your garden and lawn might need some cleaning and maintenance for it, and if your busy schedule had been preventing you to do some lawn maintenance, now you do not have the excuse. Be productive by doing some lawn jobs you have like pruning, cleaning the pathways, removing dead woods, spread some mulch or finish planting your summer bulbs.
Working from home? There is no problem with that, as your patio or terrace can be a perfect office for doing some paperwork or answering e-mails. You will realize how liberating it is to work while listening to the chirping of the birds, feeling the wind against your face, and feeling the warmth of the sunlight on your skin. It effectively boosts your mood positively
Setup a picnic date
Home quarantine is a perfect opportunity for family bonding, so make most out of it. Setup a picnic date with your loved ones in the morning under the sunrise or at night to watch the moon and the stars. Just think that it is a perfect time to create real interaction with people without being distracted with works or requirements at school.
While there are hints that nature and environment are healing from the toxins, it is also time for us to take a pause at life and connect more with the people around us or with ourselves.
