It’s almost half a month when the PM of India Shri Narendra Modi declared a serious lockdown in the country. With each passing day, people have been counting the days when they will step out on the roads.
While some already broken the lockdown by taking the situation lightly. With increasing cases of COVID -19 day by day, it somehow becomes difficult to say the exact time when the restrictions will be over.
Our main focus should be on the majority i.e. those who are locked inside the homes.
If you are thinking that the rest of the lockdown days are becoming hard to pass. You will be going to utilize it effectively, no need to think much.

How you Should be Spending Rest of the Lockdown Days
Working on your Passion
Working and Improving your passion every day should be the target on your home list. It could be anything from Cooking, Dancing, Singing, etc. Try unique ways and be creative with what you will be doing.
I know this idea came in your mind, but laziness often makes us shift to some other day. If we see from the other perspective, this is the precious time that we can practice in our homes. When the lockdown days will be over then we can apply the practiced passion into the real world.
i.e. seeing it as a practice time would going to help a lot.
If you couldn’t devote a full day then a small improvement would do the job. It’s not about how much time you give but how much you improve from your past learnings.
Traveling in home
I know in this current situation all we have to do is avoid “travel” and you must be thinking is this guy gone mad that he is listing travel in lockdown days.
No, I am not but for Travel Yes.
By Traveling I am referring to travel from home by refreshing your memories which you had made and sharing with your family members.
You can start with – Gathering everybody in your family and sharing your precious memories from the past. This could be a good exercise to refresh your mind with lived moments.
You could also turn it as a game – for e.x.- Pillow passing travel story game, when the music stops and the person who is having the pillow will going to share his past travel memory.
So, this could be an Interesting time spent at home.
Digging out the old album from Graveyard
We all would be having old albums in your houses dig somewhere in the corner. The album could be of a past marriage that you have attended, a place you went with the family, home moments when you were born, etc.
In the earlier days, people use to frame the moments in an album so that they can look and relive in the future.
You should take all the albums out from the graveyard which many of us almost forgot that they even exist in the house. Chances are that you will come across some unbelievable things inside the album which your elders kept and forgot.
Spending time with yourself alone
With excessive usage of the word “Lockdown” being shown on T.V and various other platforms that It will be going to create a mental impact. i.e. It’s required to keep yourself away from hearing a lot about this issue. If we use (ctrl + f) to find the amount of usage in our minds that how many times we had consumed the word lockdown then I would think a minimum of 20-30 times a day.
We all wanted to be updated with the on-going situation but keeping yourself away for a few days would be stressfree.
Meditating, playing indoor games, listening to music and even daydreaming would help to overcome the much talked about issue.
Keeping yourself Busy
By keeping your interest in something will help you forget about the days remaining. Interest involves putting in the heart and soul.
You can keep yourself busy with the things that I had above mentioned in the points or can learn online.
There are numerous numbers of things which you can learn online, be it Language classes, writing classes and many more. The goal should be to keep learning, creating and evolving with time.
Sitting on the floor of your Balcony
This will sound weird.
Sitting on the floor would be more relaxing than sitting on the bed or sofa because the heartwarming vibes that the floor gives cannot be felt on any other. You will be going to agree with me, right?
Since it’s the month of April and in India, the weather remains pleasant before the arrival of hot summers.
You can sit for hours in your balcony and hear the bird’s chirpings around or get deep down in your thoughts.
Implementing and Following Daily Routine
Make a daily routine for the rest of the remaining days because probably you would not be getting this much time again at home. Finger’s crossed if everything goes well then you will be again running every day. Whether it is school, college, job or household work.
The routine life of waking up in the morning. You must be thinking that it’s the daily routine of waking in the morning, how it’s different in lockdown; and that’s the motive keeping routine going.
Because when the lockdown will be going to be over then you will be facing problems as this 1-month routine will make you lazy for the starting of the days.
Why not utilize every single day after the lockdown, since it’s going to be fresh as if landed the first time on the planet. The air quality, road conditions, water quality will make you feel different in this phase of life.
These are the points that I thought will going to help in spending the rest of the lockdown days at a quick speed.
After the restrictions will be over, we have to save us by following the activities which we were supposed to be doing all the time.
To travel across the globe, you have to stay fit and healthy. For that, complete care should be taken in a behaved manner so that others will be safe as well.
