While being forced to stay inside, for any reason, could be an experience filled with boredom, anxiety and even hopelessness, it could also bring some good things. They may be hard to see when you are in the middle of everything, but we will try helping you take a step back to see that there are some positive things, albeit seemingly small.
First and foremost – boredom is the mother of creativity and ideas. You need to be bored sometimes to release the crazy ideas that may be the start of something big. Whether it is a painting waiting to be transferred to the canvas, a novel to be written or some other change to your life, this is the perfect time to spend some time on it.
Your Home Is Your Castle
After being forced to spend an unusual amount of time at home, you may have realised that some updates would be in order. It could be small changes to make you home prettier and more adjusted to how you actually use it, or it could be updating old things that don’t work anymore.
Many of us have found ourselves cooking more than we normally do, only to discover that our kitchen needs some updating for this to work optimally. New kitchenware can be found online, with a neat delivery service. Perhaps some older things need replacing, or maybe you have grown your cooking skills so much during the past few weeks that you want completely new utensils.
Make Your Home a Perfect Fit
Do you use your home the way you thought when you decorated it? Probably you have gained some insight into how you move around your house and what parts of it fits you. If everything is a perfect match we congratulate you. For the rest of us, this is the time to make changes.
Perhaps you have found that your desk is unused despite working from home since you prefer sitting by the kitchen table. Or maybe you take a bath every day, and so should try to make your bathroom more cozy. It you spend a lot of time reading in the sofa, make sure you have enough light and somewhere to place a cup of tea close by. There are lots of things that can be changed, because your house should be designed from your needs, not by what everybody else thinks.
