With the covid-19 virus, many of us now went into quarantine. The only good side is that we may be able to stay with our family and take care of each other. On the other hand, Freelancer like me can be highly impacted. The photography business has completly stopped right now in Paris, like in all the main world cities. We photographer can just offer you to share some of our little secrets with online courses or propose to improve your pictures with the use of presets that we’ve built thanks to our deep knowledge of photo editing. But with this post, I wanted to offer you more and propose you few options to occupy your time while you are at home.
1. Clear space and clear your wardrobe and get some money.
This is a perfect way not to lose your time while you are out of your work and there is nothing to do even though you are still full of energy. Open your wardrobe and check the items that you forgot and don't wear any longer or use and give them a second life. This can be helpful for someone who was missing especialy this item and you will win some extra bonus money. Personally, I’ve earned 1 500 euros in 2 month just by taking pictures and posting them on one of my favourite application Vinted , which is available in all Europe.
2. Finish all the small things.
There is something that you’ve always wanted to terminate but that was always rescheduled for tomorrow. You will feel yourself much better and it will help you to be open for new plans and ideas. Make future plans, think about your dreams. Make a to do list or your own dream map. Remember that all we think about strongly will happened in real life.
3. Do it yourself (DIY)
Start your hobby, something that you have a passion for but there was many excuses like I'm tired ect. Maybe some handmade items, drawing, maybe you love to write and now is the time to open your own blog or write some articles and get some money especialy if you are in a trouble situation and you can't work at this time.
4. Family time.
Remember your vows when you get married, you promised to be together in any difficult time and situation - if you are a couple. Take care about your loved ones and enjoy each second while you are all together. Make surprise, cook new interesting dish together, make family and romantic dinner ... (watch photo album) Help your loved one with small stuff like cleaning, business ideas, inspire each other and prepare to conquer new peaks.
6. Take some online courses.
If you need something to keep your brain stimulated, there are an abundance of online courses you could look into. Future Learn has a variety of subjects to feed your mind, and you may even come across a passion you never knew you had. Pick up on something you’ve been meaning to learn about but haven’t had the time for – if not now, then when? Learn new languages, history, art, photography.
7. Home yoga, meditation.
There is a lot of time to cook and to take a rest but make sure ythat after quarantine time finishes your friends will recognise you. Fine some online articles on YouTube and choose the kind of sport and exercises that fits you.
8. Decorate and bring some atmosphere in your place.
By putting a beautiful vase, table cover, make home harmony. A room full of elements that connect to one another somehow visually will have a bit more harmony than one that is full of a lot of different looking elements that don’t seem to relate to each other at all.
9. Have fun and go into challenge game trough instagram or YouTube.
like #quarantinelife, #quarantineandchill, #quarantinedance, #fliptheswitch or create your own one!
It will help you to cheer up your mood, cheer up the mood of your friends , it will inspire them to have fun as well and to get creative in finding other ways to do so.
10.Watch movies, serials.
It can be movies that got Oscars, old movies, for example the latest movie that I've seen was "Tess"and it was such inspiring by colors and compositions . Or one of my favourite TV show is Game Of Thrones and I could rewatch it 1000 times more.
Staying at home for a prolonged period of time may prove difficult, but that’s even more of a reason to rise to the challenge – There are plenty of things to do to remain productive, just remember to wash your hands at regular intervals and use anti-bacterial wipes for things that you touch or use often. Taking hygiene seriously is a key factor and it’s also important to take care of yourselves. Stay safe everyone!
