3 Things To Do When Coronavirus Cabin Fever Strikes
3 Things to Do When Coronavirus Cabin Fever Strikes
The coronavirus pandemic has tossed all shreds of normalcy around the world down the drain. No more eating out, no more concerts, and no more going to the movies. Those were some of the things that we took for granted, thinking that they would be part of our daily lives for as long as we live.
As we’ve been forced to take shelter in our homes till God knows when as part of efforts imposed by the authorities to contain the rampaging virus, cabin fever has set in for some of us.
Cabin fever isn’t a mental or physical health condition. It’s a term coined to describe a wide range of negative emotions resulting from restrictions on movement and boredom. The severity varies for each individual. Extroverts are more prone to feeling this way since they’re used to being out and about instead of being at home. The more time you spend feeling as if you don’t have a sense of purpose or are running out of new ways to entertain yourself, the more likely and sooner you are to get cabin fever.
How to Deal With Cabin Fever During This Pandemic
No matter how much we want to go back to our normal lives, we just have to accept that we have little control over the coronavirus or the speed in which an effective vaccine or cure against it is developed. We can’t control how soon these quarantines will end.
However, we do have control over the things we can do while we’re stuck at home. Take this time to be productive. For instance, you can practice playing with your guitar and maybe try your hand at baking. The key is to always make sure that you’re doing something productive.
Check out these three things you can do if you feel that cabin fever is getting to you.
- Redecorate your room.
Since you now have a lot of extra time on your hands, use it to clean up and redecorate your room. This can help your mind feel at ease while doing some much-needed room cleaning at the same time! Tidy up your room and get rid of things you don’t use anymore. Since you’re stuck at home, you might as well make the place where you sleep a bit comfier.
- Get into a routine.
It’s fine to be lazy for a day or two, but it’s definitely not okay to lounge around for weeks on end! This isn’t a permanent vacation, and the more you give in to the urge to just binge-watch Netflix shows all day, the more it’s going to become a habit.
Fix your sleeping schedule. Get up at the same hours as you would when you still had to go to the office or school, and don’t just wear pajamas all day. You can even throw in workout sessions to help keep yourself fit. Remain structured and organized even when the rest of the world is in chaos.
- Learn a new language.
Learning a new language is hard and time-consuming. However, time is on your side as you’re going to be stuck in home isolation for quite a while. What better way to come out of this coronavirus pandemic period by being able to speak a new language? It will not only help you pass the time while learning something new, but you’ll also be adding solid value to your skill set that you can most certainly brag about in your resume!
Help Save Lives Even When You’re Stuck at Home
