8. Listen To Music

A few agencies have also started the online streaming of a paid live concert, where you can see your favorite singer perform from the comforts of your living room.
9. Decorate Your Room
We spend so much of our time away from homes that we rarely get time to decorate our rooms the way we had always wanted to. It has been said that a settled room brings positive vibes into your body. So, take some time to move a few things in your room, maybe find an old painting that you never hung from the wall or make a lamp shade with recycled paper.
10. Make A New Friend
Seeing familiar faces everyday might get boring after a while, well, Tinder has given the free passport option, where you can swipe from any part of the world and make new friends and get to know the state of things at their end. Other dating apps such as Hinge, Bumble and Truly Madly can also help you find friends among new strangers.
You should also use this time to reach out to your old friends who have just remained your facebook friends over the years.
11. Stay Together
The last and the most important thing is to stay together and take care of each other. We should help each other in all of our household daily chores, so that no one feels overwhelmed. We should also not spread messages and information that we get through unconfirmed sources on Whatsapp. Remember, all of us need to fight the Corona virus together and only then we would be able to win over this world crisis.
