3. Read books
One of the things you can do during quarantine is to read books that you have not read because you don’t have time to do it. If you’re looking for more books to read, you can visit the following websites for free access:
- https://www.scribd.com/?lohp=2 (good for a month of unlimited access to all books)
- https://lib.siena.edu/free (up to September 2020)
To give you some book recommendations, we have five self-improvements books that you can read.
If you do not prefer reading long paragraphs, it is ideal for you to read newsletter from prominent authors. I highly suggest you subscribe to John Clear’s newsletters.
4. Listen to various podcasts
Podcasts do not only entertain you but also stimulate your brain. You can listen to various podcasts in Spotify. I recommend you to listen the podcast of the Self-Improvement Daily by Brian Ford. His podcasts are mostly less than 10 minutes. Even more, the topics are interesting.
What’s more interesting, try to check the podcasts of Matt D’Avella, the Ground Up Show. His podcasts are interviews with people that has exceptional contributions. The purpose of these podcasts are to inspire listeners.
5. Learn to build a website
The world today is shifting to digital marketing. Try to consider understanding how websites are being build. You will know more about building a website when you attend an online class in Skill Share. Further, you can use Square Space whenever you want to try since there is a one month free trial, no credit card required. If you want to use it for good, Square Space offers a discount for your first month.
6. Start gardening
With the ongoing crisis brought by COVID-19, learn to appreciate the idea of farm to table. Go to your backyard and plant the fruits and vegetables that you are eating always. Love how nature works. Gardening is also therapeutic.
If you have your own garden, that’s great. Venture on more plants you want to cultivate or try redesigning your existing garden.
Maybe you are done watching the series on Netflix and the movies on HBO channel. Now is the time to try something new. Learn something new and master it. After this quarantine, you will be able to do something for yourself.
Keep safe everyone!
