6 good things to do right now during self-isolation
Quarantine is a serious measure, not a romance about the "best version of yourself." But it will certainly fly faster if you load yourself with useful things.
Learn to stand on your head
Self-isolation leaves little space for sporty diversity. But you can do yoga or stretching even in the tiniest apartment. In order not to give up training, set yourself a goal. Touching your toes with your hands towards the end of quarantine is already a victory if you haven’t been involved in sports. If your physical training is better, the goal may be twine or a yoga stand on the head - shirshasana.
Finally improving your health
Healthy lifestyle can be important now. It is the perfect moment to start practicing sport and eating healthy food. Being the whole day at home, we have a lot of time to spend on ourselves. Make a schedule with morning exercises and a week plan which include correct alimentation.
Watch Oscar Movies
The Oscar has been awarded since 1929. Of course, to revise all the movie masterpieces even in one nomination that have accumulated over almost a hundred years, a lifetime may not be enough. But you can definitely look through the winners of the title “Best Film” of the last couple of years or even decades - after all, you probably already watched some pictures. On our page you can find good compilations of movies.
Read some books
Only one series of books about Harry Potter or the Lord of the Rings trilogy is enough to occupy the entire quarantine. If you've already read the epic about the boy who survived, and the history of Middle-earth, take a look at the list of the best books of all time according to the BBC. Here are collected masterpieces of world literature for every taste.
Relieve stress through playing interactive games
When there are too many disturbing events around you that you cannot influence, it's time to briefly switch to another world. And computer games will help. Perhaps you will feel a little better after a crazy race on a car. Or the riddles of Ancient Egypt and a soccer match on the network with friends will distract from all problems. Or maybe your option is a bit of safe aggression in game shootings with enemies.
Save up money on an old dream
Given that there is nowhere to go during self-isolation, some expenses will disappear by themselves. Most of the purchases you are likely to make online, so start using different savings tools. For example, install an application that monitors the price of the same product on different marketplaces, and order where it is most profitable. Try to save up some money each day.
What is self-isolation and why do we need to follow the quarantine lockdown?
Self-isolation is such a regime when the maximum number of people do not allow contacts with each other. Simply they spend all their time at home and go out only in case of an important need. For example, buy products at the supermarket.
This is an important and practically way to deal with a pandemic. The less you contact people, the lower your risk of getting sick or infecting others. Staying healthy right now is an important help to society and the medical system, which is under heavy pressure. After all, if at the same time more people get sick than the medical facilities are able to accept, someone will not be helped. To prevent this terrible situation, stay home. Moreover, if you come up with different activities, it will not be boring at all.
From a legal point of view, the individual quarantine is applied in two ways:
(1)institutionalized quarantine (most often referred under the term quarantine), when an individual is placed by authorities in special quarantine centers for a certain period of time;
(2)home isolation (also referred to as self-isolation), when an individual has the obligation to remain in the home area for a period of time decided by the authorities.
Contact with other people should be avoided so to keep away the coronavirus infection. The World Health Organization recommends not approaching others closer than a meter, and the American Center for Disease Control and Prevention - 1.8 meters. It is believed that at this distance the virus particles will not be transmitted by coughing or sneezing. That’s why at home we feel safe, the feeling of safety is the most important now. Self-isolation means safety.
5 things that should not be done immediately after the end of self-isolation
You should not hope that life will immediately return to its former course.
We all wait until the moment when we can hug friends, have a party or go on a trip. But do not rush. Although Coronavirus: Austria and Italy reopen some shops as lockdown eased are showing the first signs of weakening isolation measures, the situation is still serious. The death toll every day is still measured in thousands. We still do not know much about coronavirus and do not have a vaccine.
Whatever rules you enter in your area, use common sense. Here's what you definitely shouldn't do.
1. Have a party or go to a bar
Social distance measures have been introduced for a reason: they slow down the spread of the virus from person to person. A big party or gatherings in a crowded bar is a lot of contacts. If at least one of those present is a coronavirus carrier, he can transfer it to everyone else.
2. Stop washing hands
Even when restrictions are loosened, it will not mean that the coronavirus is over. Many organizations and stores will have to be reopened for economic reasons, although the virus will still spread, albeit more slowly than now.
3. Immediately visit people at high risk
Surely you would like to see elderly relatives as soon as possible, but do not rush with this. There will be no vaccine for a long time, and for people at risk, distancing is still the best way to protect. Before you go to them, think carefully about whether you really need this visit.
4. Start a big trip
When travel is allowed again, hotel and ticket prices are likely to be attractively low. But do not forget that at airports and train stations you will be in close proximity to a large number of people, which means that the risk of infection will greatly increase.
5. Throw away masks
In the future, a new outbreak of coronavirus or even some completely new infection may await us. So reusable masks are definitely not worth throwing out. When travel restrictions are loosened, it is best to combine optimism with realism. Use freedom, but do not give up precautions.
Donald Trump horrified the Americans again! How he relaxed on a sad day for the United States
Donald Trump once again provoked the indignation of the American public opinion - even on the day when the officials from Washington announced a devastating balance of the coronavirus epidemic, the president of the United States preferred to play golf!
Trump has chosen to relax on Memorial Day, a day to pay tribute to the American military who gave their lives for their country.
But instead of a visit to the Pentagon or Arlington Cemetery where many war heroes are buried, Trump went to his golf club, which he had not visited for more than two months.
And at the White House, the death toll from coronavirus was close to 100,000, a figure that puts the United States at the top of both casualties and infections, over 1.6 million people.
Asked about the fact that instead of mourning he plays golf, President Trump said he hopes to resume golf tournaments as soon as possible.
"We want life back to normal as soon as possible. I can't wait to see golfers again and enjoy the same experience as mine," Trump said.
