Activities that Help Me Get Through Lockdown

Many people have discovered they have hidden talent or skills during the lockdown. Some learned they have wanted to bake, cook, play musical instruments, or sing. Others develop hobbies like gardening, painting, reading, and writing. And some pass away the time binging on movie series or playing games to entertain themselves. All these activities have helped us get through this time.

I have my personal lists of favorite activities that cheer me up through the lockdown. 

Online games

Playing online games keeps my sanity from the daily stresses. When I get tired from doing the household chores, I rest a bit and grab my mobile phone to play block puzzles. It is like a mental exercise to me when I need to focus on something important.

When I am sitting in front of the laptop, I would be playing a fight virus game. The interesting part of this hospital simulation game is you get to destroy the nasty COVID-19 virtually. Even if it is just a game, it feels like you are doing your share protecting hospital workers and patients eliminate the virus.  

To play this, tap or click on the virus to disinfect the hospital environment. By destroying the virus, you keep the hospital staff and patients safe from the virus infection; tap patients (with heart signs) to help them recover more quickly. A meter in the lower-left corner illustrates the percentage of how infected the hospital is. The game is over if it reaches more than 70 percent.

Korean Dramas

South Korean dramas are popular among their Filipino audience. I started binge-watching Korean dramas in 2016 around the time I was recuperating from a medical procedure. Watching KDramas has kept me company from boredom, and I am still hooked until now. I was thankful for this streamlined series because I have learned so many things about Korean culture and fashion.

What is good about KDramas is that the seasons are shorter, and soundtracks are appropriate to the theme and unforgettable, too, even if I do not understand the lyrics. The funny part is I get the hang of reading subtitles fast while catching on to the scenes.

I actually watched almost all KDrama genres: drama, romantic comedy, melodrama, action, thriller, horror comedy. I have tons of still unwatched KDramas on my list.

Decluttering

This is actually the least of my favorite activities. However, decluttering has helped me lessen my anxiety and focus on other things. It is actually therapeutic.

I have started putting away old clothes, a stack of newspapers, old receipts, old school books, and paper books. I am planning to sell the newspapers and schoolbooks to the junkshop. I have a bit of a problem with old clothes. I hope I could find a recycling shop that would accept the clothes.

Next project will be decluttering the kitchen.

Gardening

Planting is one of the activities that hubby and I share. We do not have many plants, but we are content to see them grow every day. Gardening helps ease our worries from day-to-day activities. We are not getting any younger, and simple activity like this is good for our mental and emotional health.

The activities may be simple but they help me get through the lockdown.

How about you, what are your coping mechanisms all this time? What activities you think have helped you refocus your priorities, how it helps your mental state? 

Cornhole Decals Enhance Game

NFL cornhole decals are among those that make the game more interesting, both for more to look at but also as more to cheer for as competitors attempt to win. This adds to the fun of the unique game of Cornhole, also known as Corntoss, that originated in the Mid-West many years ago and continues to become more popular nationwide. It is almost a “ritual” at tailgating and other parties and barbecues.

Decals of all kinds are an excellent way to customize the boards. Their size of 17 inches is ideal to do the decorating as you choose from a vast selection of logos in various categories including those that show your support of your favorite NFL, NBA, or MLB team.

The Cornhole bags come with your choice of the standard corn or filled with waterproof plastic with your chosen logo or text embroidery.

Activities that Families Can Do Online

The things and activities that families do now to bond have changed tremendously from the past years. The appearance of gadgets has somehow changed the way that people communicate with each other. Ironically, gadgets have helped people who are far away to communicate but it has also alienated those who are just close by. Right now, we see families all glued to their very own gadgets without talking to each other because they are just too busy with the games that they are playing. Wouldn’t it be nice to play a game online that will allow everybody to enjoy and still bond?

One site that you can try if you would want to play it with your family is FoxyBingo.com. It has games that will allow people to have fun. There are also different promotions that you will probably like once you check it out. The things being promoted will help you save up on money and gain extra points as well. The games there are family friendly too so you do not have to worry about the games being a bit too violent for kids or too boring for your teenage son and daughter. The promotions that are available on the site will give you a clear idea on when you should play and quite frankly, the more you play, the more chances that you will get prices. Maybe having a friendly competition with your family members will make you bond more and laugh like you used to.

Do remember that there are still other things that families can do in order to bond. Let online gaming be the passageway for the rest of the family members to realize that you should still talk with each other and laugh without the need of the gadgets that are freely available right now. Remember that gadgets can be replaced but family members are simply priceless.
