The coronavirus is taking the world by storm and as a word of caution, you must pay close attention to any symptoms which may indicate that you need medical care. Even if you are asymptomatic, we strongly advise to go for antibody testing at the very least.
We understand the idea of home quarantine could sound all too depressing, almost like imprisonment. But there’s always a silver lining if you look closely enough. Here are some fun things you can do while you stay home and thoroughly enjoy your quarantine period.
- Start a 1000 pieces puzzle and finish it
A 1000 pieces puzzle is not a child’s play. It can take hours or even days to finish, and you wouldn’t even know how the time would just fly. Just in case you are too good with puzzles, you could try timing your performance and who knows you could set a record!
