How to be productive during quarantine
Ever since the enhanced community quarantine began, some of us have struggled on finding things to do while being stuck inside our homes. Maybe adapting Megaworld’s Live-Work-Play-Learn model for its own townships, like Southwoods City and Alabang West, for your productivity goals should be the next bullet point in your to-do list!
Clean and Organize
Not only is it important now more than ever that we live in a clean (and virus-free) home, studies also show that a tidy environment increases productivity. Cleaning your things doesn’t only include the objects lying around your house and keeping everything dust-free, it also means organizing your emails, files, photos, and other things that might help you declutter your home workspace.
How to keep your home virus-free
Researchers have found that the novel coronavirus is capable of living on surfaces such as cardboard for 24 hours, but up to two or three days on plastic and stainless steel. So cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces is a step we should all take. High-Touch Surfaces to Clean and Disinfect Daily:
- Table surfaces
- Hard dining chairs (seat, back, and arms)
- Kitchen counters
- Bathroom counters
- Faucets and faucet knobs
- Toilets (seat and handle)
- Light switches
- TV remote controls
- Game controllers
PLAY & LEARN
Spend quality time
Your free time could be quality and relaxation time with the people you are quarantined with. Binge-watch your favorite films and tv series, exercise, try out new recipes, or maybe even shoot a Tiktok video with them!
Thanks to technology, reaching out to your friends and family who aren’t with you is so easy. You can update them with your life through video calls, and even arrange Zoom and Netflix parties with your friends.
Workout at home
A health crisis calls for a healthier lifestyle! There’s no problem either if you can’t head over to your favorite gym. Many websites and apps like YouTube and Instagram have a collection of online home workouts you can choose from whether you’re into zumba, yoga, circuit training, and the like.
If you live inside a condominium (like Tulip Gardens and Holland Park in Southwoods City), residents may use their fitness amenities as long as you practice social distancing and proper sanitation.
Discover something new
Thanks to YouTube videos and Facebook groups, a lot of people are spending their home quarantine acquiring new skills. One of the most viral trends of the month has been dalgona coffee which was popular due to its (a bit) time-consuming recipe with the most basic ingredients.
Many class-oriented websites and online schools are also offering free class modules for those who would like to take part in their curriculums and broaden their knowledge in different fields. If you are interested in learning about investments, stocks, business, advertising, and the like, this might be the best time for you to do so!
Update your budget plan
This home quarantine could either be a blessing for your savings, or a trial for your finances. Either way, this is the perfect time to realign your priorities and strategies regarding your money.
- Layout a budget plan, or update your current one
- List down your necessary and unnecessary expenses
- Cut down most, if not all, of your unnecessary expenses
- Set aside a portion for savings
If there’s one thing that this season taught us is how important it is to be prepared in times like this.
Find an investment
A crisis like this has revealed to us which things are essential to survival. With everyone stuck at home for quarantine, it’s definitely safe to assume that REAL ESTATE IS ESSENTIAL! And townships make the essential accessible in one location.
Megaworld’s Townships, like Southwoods City and Alabang West, are built across a large area of land with the concept of “City within a city”; and that’s when you will truly appreciate the advantages and benefits of living in a complete community where everything you need is at the tip of your fingertips.
