7 activities that you can do during quarantine with your partner
This period of isolation you spend with your partner should be like a moment of respite, in which you enjoy each other more.
Even if we miss the active lifestyle we had before, the romantic meetings, the dinners at the restaurant or the surprises our partner prepared, this does not mean that we are no longer part of them in isolation, but rather you and he must adapt to the situation and continue to be romantic with each other.
Despite the fact that it is a crisis and extremely overwhelming, think that being with your partner can help you find your balance and have a much better emotional state.
Here are our recommendations that you can put into practice in isolation with your partner:
1. Cook together
If before you and your partner did not have time to cook, you did not like or used to order food, now you have the opportunity to experience it. Whether you are trying new recipes or prefer to cook some of your favorite foods, think about it as an opportunity to learn new things from one another. Besides, what can be more romantic than a dinner prepared by your partner?
We must admit that karaoke sessions are extremely fun. In this case, what would it be like if you challenged your partner to karaoke? It is an activity that can get you out of the comfort zone and will give you an instant well-being. In addition, from a psychological point of view, it can improve your communication and make you express your emotions much better.
3. Make a puzzle
You may not expect to recommend making a puzzle with your boyfriend, but here it may be an option that you can consider. It is an activity that keeps your mind busy, can relieve stress and, in addition, with a bottle of wine, is the ideal recipe for a perfect evening.
During this period, we are all looking for different ways to manifest our creativity, and painting can be one of them. It is an excellent way to curb your emotions, and if you are not inspired, well, it can come from movies, serials, books, music or even from those around you.
Almost everyone recommends that, in isolation, we relax and do those things that we have postponed. Well, what if you and your partner turned your house into a spa? And do not think that it is very difficult, you need some candles, face masks, skin care products that have a special smell and, let's not forget, extremely comfortable clothes.
6. Try yoga
Yoga is one of the ways that frees us from negative thoughts and helps us to have a balance between mind, body and soul. One of the main actions that yoga has is to reduce stress because it combines both meditation and deep breathing exercises. And if neither you nor your partner have tried so far, well, you can find a lot of examples of yoga exercises for couples.
7. Play board games
If you and your boyfriend were used to board games, then you shouldn't abandon them in isolation. It is an opportunity to give up the Netflix series and believe us, you will not regret it because you will certainly have a lot of fun.

Both his parents are in their 60s and are at high-risk to get the infection as they suffer from various health complications, leaving them alone was the hardest step and decision.
But in the end they encouraged Eihab to try to find a flight, partly because they cared and worried about his girlfriend being alone in Canada.

China seems to be hit by a new wave of coronavirus. People in the northeast of the country can only leave the house for strictly necessary shopping. This time it would be a form of the virus that has mutated. The symptoms of the infection appear later and the disease is more difficult to cure. Authorities imposed containment measures on the affected area.
Chinese officials have imposed quarantine restrictions on two cities in northeast China's Jilin province. Jilin is part of a larger province in the Dongbei region - home to more than 100 million people. Health authorities have raised the alert in the area, writes express.co.uk.
About 40,000 residents of Jilin and Shulan were tested for coronavirus after officials were alerted to a possible new outbreak.
In Jilin, authorities stopped all major transport links to and from neighboring cities until further notice. In Shulan, all villages and residential complexes were closed after a similar outbreak of COVID-19 cases last week.
Residents are allowed to leave their homes only for essential reasons, but not more than two hours, once every two days. However, delivery services have been largely shut down, and anti-fever drugs are banned from pharmacies to prevent people from hiding their symptoms.
Schools, public places and public transport have been closed. Children can only play outside if they wear masks, and health care workers have returned to protective equipment, writes Bloomberg.
Strict measures have raised concerns, as people believed the nation's worst epidemic was over. The fear spread to nearby areas, although no cases have been officially reported in those places.
The virus in the new outbreak has mutated
The new virus that hit northeast China is behaving differently from the one in Wuhan, and researchers say it has undergone mutations. Patients in China's new outbreaks appear to be carrying the virus for a longer period of time and need a longer recovery time. In addition, the symptoms of the disease are felt more than two weeks after infection, say Chinese specialists, which makes it difficult to detect new cases.
However, it seems that patients rarely have a fever, and the virus affects only the lungs, not the other organs as is the case with the form discovered in Wuhan. Moreover, it is believed that the new form of coronavirus is actually exported from abroad, the analysis of the strain of the new form of the virus resembling that of Russia.
