The Coronavirus that started early this year, lead to a total lockdown. This has turned the world upside down. Suddenly all the things we normally do for fun is no longer allowed we all had to stay at home, work from home only the essential shops were allowed to open like the grocery and pharmacy.
Now that the lockdown is over life is still not back to how we use to know it . The question is how do we make staying at home more fun. Everybody started getting creative a lot of people who had gardens made it look more beautiful, cos they would be spending more time in their garden. Buying a house with a garden became essential criteria.
To make the garden more fun, a lot of families bought the inflatable swimming pool so that friends and families would swim at home cos the public swimming pool are close, installing a real swimming pool in the cold region is not necessary for some people cos of limitation of usage during the winter. That is why a lot of people opted for the inflatable swimming pool so that in the winter they would just deflate it and put it inside. I also decided to join the bandwagon of buying the inflatable swimming pool. I would say it was fun to have it and use it, as I really cannot swim just sitting in the water in the open air was fun and refreshing during the extra hot days. At the end I find it an interesting choice.
2) I also worked in my garden to make it look beautiful and I incorporated a resort vibe to it, so that I would not miss going out or traveling haha staycation idea was put to use.
3) Renovating and redecoration my house became one of my top priorities, Sitting in my terrace at home became something I do regularly I have breakfast, lunch and dinner outside on the terrace.
I am also paying more attention to eating healthy during this coronavirus period.
I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables cos this help to improve the immune system.
2020 has not turned out the way we expected but we are happy to be alive.
