We must stay at home so as not to spread this famous coronavirus. What if we turn this burden into an opportunity?
Quarantine gives us extra time. Because some people can’t go to party or go to work. All that will be for later. At first glance, you think you will be bored. Not so sure. At least it depends on how you want to use that time.
Here are 7 ideas to stay productive during this quarantine and turn it into an opportunity.
1. Play sports
Most people complain that they don’t have enough time or energy to exercise. Now you have it! Of course, you can’t run outside or go to the gym. Instead, you can fire up Youtube and choose the home workout that’s right for you: yoga, cardio, flexibility, Zumba… You’re bound to find something you love so much there is a choice. In addition, sport will help you maintain physical and mental fitness during this period of isolation.
2. Learn new skills
Now that you have all that time, make it productive by learning new skills. They might be useful to you after quarantine is over! We are often close to doubling our income, obtaining this promotion or creating what is close to our heart.
Here are some ideas for skills to learn:
Manage your budget well.
You can also spend time reading books that could change your life!

3. Learn to listen to yourself
Yes, it might sound strange, but it is surely the most productive thing you can do. Not just during your 40s but throughout your life. In normal life one is constantly bombarded with information from the outside.
By staying at home (provided you don’t spend your time on social media!) You will have the opportunity to eliminate all those distractions that influence your day-to-day decisions.
Without all of these outside influences, you have the opportunity to re-listen to your inner voice, your intuition, and all the real desires you have for your life.
Some activities that help you learn to listen to yourself:
Writing in a journal.
4. Cultivate your social relationships
Even locked in your home, you can cultivate your social relationships. This friend that you haven’t had the opportunity to see in the past year, maybe it’s your chance to get back in touch with him and have a good phone or Skype conversation. Most people have some time to spare now, so this is an opportunity to check in with your loved ones and anyone you would have liked to spend time with this year.
A good opportunity to reconnect and enrich your social network!
5. Lay down your vision for your next 10 years
If everything was possible:
What would you like to happen in your life for the next 10 years?
What type of person would you like to become?
What would you like to have?
What would your ideal day look like?
What would your income be?
How much money would you like to have in your account ?.
Now is the time to dream, imagine, write down, and clarify that vision for yourself 10 years from now.
Why do that ?
Simply because it is much easier to create your dream life for yourself once you know what it looks like. This is the magic of the law of attraction.
6. Develop good habits now
Having the whole day in front of you gives you the opportunity to plan it however you want.
So you can make it useful and productive !. As long as you put in place good habits. What morning routine would you like to put in place to keep you energized all day?.

7. Take stock of your life
Taking stock of your life, but especially the most important lessons you have learned can help you make better decisions in the future. Often, we do not take this time to take stock or we forget. We end up not really learning from our experiences and repeating the same mistakes.
By taking the time to reflect on our accomplishments and our mistakes, we can learn productive lessons for our future.
What mistakes did you make?
What have been your failures? Your accomplishments?
What lessons can you learn from it?
What have you learned about the world and yourself?
Are you satisfied with the management of your budget?
How could you improve the management of your personal finances?

You can even display them to think about it every day.
