2. Reconnect your inner bookworm
Despite social distancing, you can travel back to your memories and reconnect your hidden bookworm. If your busy schedule didn't spare time to read, self-quarantine is probably the best time. If you are someone you don't read often, then you can choose a book of your choice and start reading. Spending time on reading is undoubtedly the best investment you can put on yourself.
3. Watch TED Talks Videos
All the great leader has a common habit-listening. Time spend on TED Talks is an investment where you will get a priceless return on investment (ROI) throughout your life. All the best part is – the videos are free of cost. Get encouraged by the eminent personalities of the world, and see how they made a difference. Keep a notepad to jot down the points you think is worth remembering.
4. Write a grateful list
Remember the last time you thought you couldn't achieve something, but you challenged yourself and did it perfectly well? That WOW feeling. You don't need to be a professional writer to be thankful for- all you need is a pen and a piece of paper to start. Be honest with what you write. The list you make in self-quarantine will not only make you feel happy but also help in hard times when you need motivation the most.
5. Gain financial knowledge
Like workouts are necessary for your physical health, financial knowledge is essential for wealth. Have you always craved for generating passive income? If yes, self-quarantine is undoubtedly the best time to understand the cashflow quadrant. Read, watch videos, plan—look for ways on how you can boost your financial literacy, and uplift your bank credits.
6. Use the SWOT technique
One of the most productive things to do in self-quarantine is analyzing yourself using SWOT. SWOT is an acronym of Strength, Weakness, Opportunities, and Threats. It is a self-actualization technique that will help you in all areas of life. Know the things you can do better than others, and at the same time, check on those that deserve your attention.
7. Challenge yourself
History books record with daring and dauntless people. Challenging is a great exercise to see your inner potential. Try something that you are scared to do or would fail in the first few attempts. For instance, if you use your right hand for writing, try using your left hand. If you have a habit of using a calculator even for simple arithmetic, try calculating numbers on your mind.
8. Learn a new skill
Learning always pays off. Utilize the self-quarantine in learning new skills in the areas of your interest. Whatever suits the interest – writing, programming, public speaking, to name a few, are some of the most amazing things you can learn when you are at home, free from office work. If you always wished to learn a new language, this can be the best time to start.
9. Check your reading & typing speed
The ability to type fast with accuracy is a lifetime gift. Therefore, self-checking your typing speed is one of the challenging things to do in your free time. Check how many words per minute (WPM) you can type with your regular speed. If you want to improve your accuracy, challenge yourself with typing speed and see how you can increase.
10. Write a letter to your future
The list of productive activities to do at home is incomplete without writing a letter to your future self. What seriously? Huh! What are your expectations from life? Be it financial, fitness, mental health, or whatnot, add everything in the list. Say, you want to gain weight or lose slim or merely want to maintain your present weight? Write it down in the health column. Likewise, fill the other sections that you want to achieve after the quarantine weekend.
