World has stopped now !!!

Yeah, you read it right.

Due to the current ongoing Corona Virus situation, almost all the countries declared the lockdown to control the situation. People are tired to stay at home they are getting bored.

What we can do inside our apartment?

There are lots of things which you can do at home like reading, upgrading knowledge, watching, have fun, etc.

For bloggers, this is the best time that can be utilized. Here are a few things which I am doing.



The workout is an essential thing for everyone to keep you healthy. I am getting a lot of time during this lockdown for a morning workout. This is my first activity of the day. I do a one-hour workout in the morning.


I am a software engineer working in the finance domain. In the IT industry, we have to upgrade our skills continuously.

I have purchased the Udemy courses about Docker, AWS, Git, etc which are helpful for me. On a daily basis, I am watching the tutorials of the new technologies.

You can watch tutorials, courses and upgrade your knowledge with the latest technologies in which you are interested.


Reading keep you away from distraction. If reading is your hobby, then this is the right time for you. You can utilize this time for reading your favorite novels, books, etc.

Currently, I am reading the Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. This is a very good book about finance management. The author has explained the very simple ways you can save your money and save you from wasting your money from unwanted things.

The next book which I am planning to read is The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson. This book is all about living a good life and ignoring the negative things.


It is necessary to take a break from learning and job and have some fun with our loved one. I am very addicted to the Netflix series. I do watch it when I feel boring. Currently, I am watching The Office series.

Here are the list of my favorite series-

  • Friends
  • Stranger Things
  • The Office
  • Game Of Thrones
  • Silicon Valley
  • Suits
NOTE: Dont waste your time watching the series after lockdown.

Playing Video Games

I am a big fan of Xbox. I love playing Video Games on my Xbox and I wanted to start a blog on gaming but due to some personal issue, it couldn’t happen. If you have PlayStation/Xbox then you can have fun with your family.

I have four video games on my Xbox One S-

  • Forza Horizon 3
  • Forza Horizon 4
  • GTA V
  • Call of Duty- Modern warfare
  • FIFA’19

Family time

In today’s world, everyone is addicted to mobile, laptops, etc. Nobody having time for their family. If you have observed that celebrities are posting photos with their family. Why not before lockdown?

I am having quality time with my family. We are having a lot of fun. This is the best time of my life.

This is the first time World has stopped. You will not get such a long time holiday. Don’t be serious about this situation. Stay inside your apartment. I am sure we can beat this situation.

Please let us know what you are doing during this lockdown period.
