Be Productive on the Corona Break
With the outbreak of COVID-19, the Government of Nepal has closed down the office, schools, colleges and malls. It is an effort of government to help people isolate and maintain the social distancing which is the most important element to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. While physical and social distancing is important and a couple of days in bed and couches seems dreamy; the boredom is bound to set in pretty quick.
Instead of feeling panic to see the chaos in the social media, you must be ready to make the most of this. For now, we may not have the cure for COVID-19, but we sure do have some boredom busters to see you through self-isolation with fun, productivity and home improvement. We’re here to inspire and indulge while encouraging a bit of self-love, self-care and self-improvement. Let’s get ready for how we can keep ourselves busy and become more productive.
Grab a Book
It’s time to read that book that’s been sat on your shelf for the last few months. It doesn’t have to a be course book. Grab anything that interests you. There will be less opportunity while in college to read them. Don’t have a book, don’t worry there are plenty of books that you can find online. We will also post the books you might like in the next blog.
Clear out your Wardrobe
Dedicate your new-found time and attention to sorting out your clothes, ditching items you haven’t worn for six months and coordinating clothes into sections so it’s easier to browse in the mornings. This is a great opportunity to get inspired by new outfits or rediscover an old favorite.
Get an Online Course
There are plenty of short online course you might be interested in. This is a great opportunity to help yourself grow. We are sure you will have a great time. We will post some free online course soon.
Finish your Project
You might have a project this semester or the next, don’t wait when the college reopens; this is a opportunity for you to may be write a proposal, or make literature reviews, or may be make online researches or even write the report or build the project. Whatever it is just do it and don’t procrastinate. The exams might be earlier than the regular time, it better we don’t waste anytime here.
Learn, Help in the House
How often do you get a chance to sit around the family and help them with the house hold chores? This is a time we must also shower some love to them. Give your mom a rest, learn a recipe from youtube and surprise your family. Be a better son and daughter.

Prepare for your Exam
Despite we don’t know when will things be normal, we need to make a self-disciplined routine to go back to read our texts and prepare for exams.

We are there to support you via all the means. You may also form virtual study groups and support other friends as well. A trigger sometimes may help.
