- Start your long planned business/work:
Most of us, plan a lot about startup business and to be more precisely we spend nights on thinking to build our own empire and all that. This is your golden chance to start your business, as there are many new opportunities and business lines are available right now which were no where before. Start Right Now!
- Start your hobby again:
What you like to do in your leisure time, of course we all had a hobby. This pandemic has provided us the opportunity to restart our forgotten hobby for another time.
Physical Management is an important aspect of Self management. A Sound body has a sound mind, is a saying and a true saying indeed. This is the golden opportunity to work on your physical health and fitness. There is a lot of time and space available which were never available before. Obviously we are not advocating about going to fancy gyms and etc. But this time around, you can watch and learn basic body weigh and home workouts form video sharing platforms and start your own training even in your home.
How to spend time in these isolation etc, is the common question. What about raising a small kitchen garden for organic and fresh supplies to your kitchen? What about raising some chicken and growing some mushrooms in a unused corner of your house.
Reading books can be even better option and this is the high time to nurture your spiritual bonding with the God. Things will never remain the same and this time shall pass, having a belief in God is the only option .
A good friends get together can be arranged at your own home but using your smartphone through video call.
Finances are important to maintain most of the things discussed earlier. So in case you lose your job, start your home business like supplying home cooked food to the nearby areas. If you have some savings for a rainy day this is the time to utilize them efficiently. Online Shopping or some branded sales will stay here all that is important is survival. So be efficient financial planners and spend wisely.
