These extra precautionary measures, however, shouldn’t dampen the cheery spring mood. Enjoy more of your warm-weather mornings and cozy spring days without compromising your safety with these useful tips:
Spice up your morning routine.
If you’re tired of your current morning view and have gotten bored of seeing the kitchen sink, it’s about time to take your everyday activities to a higher level.
Instead of drinking your coffee at your usual seat in the kitchen, bring it to your patio or windowsill? Into meditation and yoga? Grab your mat and do it outdoors. These little changes can help take away the boredom and enjoy the season better.
Get up and walk.
Getting too comfortable on your couch can quickly draw you away from more productive activities. To avoid procrastination and spending the whole day binge-watching on Netflix, push yourself into wearing those walking shoes, and start doing some brisk walking. If you’re living in an apartment and not under quarantine, you can head out and do a quick run around the neighborhood. Just be sure to equip yourself with a facemask and practice social distancing.
Take a breath of evening air.
If morning walks don’t appeal to you, maybe evening walks can convince you to be active. Spend your nights on your balcony and do stargazing. If you have kids, you can set-up your tent and do some backyard camping (but limit the activity to your family alone). Feeling extra? Throw in some ‘smores and toast hotdogs of your makeshift campfire!
Do some outdoor photography.
Being stuck at home, it’s but natural that your Instagram feed is loaded with indoor shots. The good thing is that you can use this spare time to hone your photography skills and learn how to take creative shots of your backyard.
You can also allot a few hours of your neighborhood walks to capture some of the views that you tend to overlook during your usual commute. It will help you appreciate the environment that you’re living in.
Plan outdoor brunches and dinners
Don’t waste the warm weather air and sunny mornings by cooping indoors. Take your tables and set-up breakfast on your balcony or backyard. If you have a spacious balcony or yard, use it as your breakfast nook and enjoy the first whiff of spring and morning sunshine before jumpstarting your day. You can also have camping-themed dinners with your kids. Or better yet, take the grill out and have a barbecue!
There is always a ton of wonderful things that can keep you and the kids busy. Just be sure to add an extra layer of caution and observe proper hygiene to ensure the safety of the entire family. Stay healthy, and together, we can conquer not only the boredom but the virus.
