This Corona Virus Pandemic has been affecting our mental health since last year, and there are only handful things to do at home during quarantine. We are unable to go outside to regular things like going to school, colleges, work, play or meet our friends.
Though it was all fun in the beginning but as the adversities begin, excitement vanished. Situation worsened, chaos took over and mental-health started to decline. The world became quiet from outside and chaotic from inside.
Just when everything was getting better, second wave of coronavirus hit again and we went back to the worse. At the time when everything is out of control, our first priority should be to ensure our safety and keep track of our mental health.
While there are not a lot of things that we can think of doing at home, but if we become more creative there are plenty of things to do at home during quarantine even if we are alone.
