Six Ways To Rock Your Stay At Home Vacation







Eiyo dearies,

The world is not in a good situation at the moment. We are now having a Covid-19 crisis. Most countries are doing lockdown, isolation, social distancing, and movement control. So how are you guys coping with this lockdown, isolation, social distancing, and movement control? I know some of you weren't happy with the situation right now, especially for those who are extrovert and a social butterfly. But for those of you who are introverts and a homebody like me, you are gonna find this easy. I'm sure all the introverts have hobbies and things to do at home. Like me, I'm always working at home -writing, blogging, and drawing illustrations. These are the things I do almost every day and keeps me company always. Besides writing, blogging, and drawing, I also read books, play the piano, learn foreign languages (French and Korean), and doing fitness workout.

In this new post, I'm gonna share with you six activities that you can do to rock your stay at home vacation. These six activities are general things that most people can do to keep them company at home. Btw, I wanna call this lockdown and isolation a "Stay At Home Vacation" to make it sound less stressful for some of you and of course, myself ^_^


#1 Read A Novel/Book



As an edutainment blogger, I wrote a lot of novel/book reviews. Most of my fellow bloggers and readers commented on my reviews saying that they now don't have time to read novels/books because of their busy schedules. Some of them also said that they miss their reading hobby. So why not take this stay at home vacation as an opportunity for you to read a novel/ book? If you don't have a new novel/book to read, you can always read your old/favorite novel/book again. Go through your home library and check on your books. I'm sure you guys have awesome reads on your shelves right?


#2 Watch Movies/Dramas



For those of you who are busy working all these while and don't have time for leisure, this is your moment to chillax at home and watch movies/dramas. You guys can watch cool movies/dramas on Netflix, Viu, Apple TV, YouTube, Astro, and many more.


#3 Play Video Games



I was never a fan of video games. But during this stay at home vacation, I believe this is a good time to play video games. I'm sure those of you who are gamers are happy with activity no.3. Yes, I encourage you to play video games at home and have fun. There are also benefits to play video games. Playing video games makes you smarter and helps you with your creativity. That's what my cousin always said. He's a gamer. Hehehe.


#4 Do Chores



This stay at home vacation is an opportunity for you guys to do chores and clean your house. Doing chores isn't easy when you are pack with office work and stuff. So why not take this moment as an opportunity for you to clean your house. After all, taking care of your house and hygiene is important, especially during this Covid-19 season. Trust me, there is also a pride for it.


#5 Cook Your Favorite Meal



Activity no.5 is also for your self-satisfaction. Since you guys aren't allowed to dine outside, why not cook at home? After all, eating a home-cook meal is more satisfying than dining outside. So do it! Use some of the food items you guys bought from the supermarket to make your favorite meal. Trust me, this is a fun activity to do at home.


#6 Pray



I believe activity no.6 is a priority and the most important thing to do during your stay at home vacation. It doesn't matter what religion you are, either you're a Muslim, Cristian, Buddhist,  or Hindu pls take this stay at home vacation as an opportunity for you to spend time doing your prayers. In Bahasa Malaysia, it means "gandakan ibadah anda". To all my Muslim friends, pls take this opportunity to read the Al-Quran and Yassin. I believe praying is the best way to reduce this Covid-19 virus. Insya'Allah, the world will be beautiful and lively again after this Covid-19 virus gone. Aamiin.


Okay,.........so these are the six activities you can do during your stay at home vacation. Pls keep calm and stay safe. Also, be patient, stay positive, and pls co-operate with your government -follow their safety instructions. Don't panic. This Covid-19 season is only temporary although we don't know yet when it's going to end. To all those social butterflies, pls see this stay at home thingy as a cool new thing. Don't see this as a burden. To be honest, I am also frustrated with this Covid-19 season. March is my birthday month, and I suppose to have an exciting schedule this month. I suppose to have my book launch ceremony and participate in the Kuala Lumpur Book Festival 2020. But due to this Covid-19, all events are canceled. However, I believe this Covid-19 season is also a season for us to practice kindness for ourselves and those we loved. 

Before I end this post, let me ask you a simple question. So what do you guys love to do when you're at home? Pls, share it with me in the comment box below. I would also like to know how you rock your stay at home vacation ^_^

Ok, that's all for now. Thank you for reading.

XoXo,

Fadima Mooneira ^_^

  1. I absolutely love your positive attitude! I feel happier just having read this post. I agree that this time should be used to do things that made you happy: reading a book, cooking your favorite meal, etc. And that we should all prioritize staying calm amidst the chaos! I think it is easier for us artsy introverts. Stay safe (and sane!).

  3. All good things to do at home. It’s tough to totally avoid going out to get supplies but staying at home as much as possible is a good idea. There’s always something you can do at home.

  4. Love the tips. We play lots of video games in our house and always cooking/eating.

  5. I don't mind staying at home and self isolating, but what I hate is the fact that someone was ill in our household, and was told to self isolate, but ignored ever single piece of isolating and covonavirus hygiene advice. I've never hated someone so much in my life.

    On another note, I'd add to this list:

    Find ways to exercise at home, be it following exercise videos on YouTube or making up your own with what you have around your house

  30. Great ideas here! I decided I'll make the most of the time I have to spend at home and do all the things I never have the time for. So far, I still don't have the time for all the things I want to do but I least I started cooking and execising daily.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Great list! :) I am actually a huge movie fan, so that's something I am doing every evening. At weekends I am having game nights with my brother! But in the mornings - working on my blog. This is a good time to do things for what we normally hadn't time (like clean the house), be with our family and concentrate to ourselfs! This time isn't so bad, as many thinks! :)
