Fun Things to do in the house during coronavirus lockdown
I thought to share some interesting and productive activities you could engage in – productively – during this COVIS-19 lockdown.
It’s no longer news that Corona-virus is ravaging the world right now, sadly.
But hey, as long as we here, we have to stay productive, active and keep hope up. Guess what, at the end of this pandemic, some people are going to come out better, smarter and richer. Some, on the other hand, are coming out dead broke and stupid.
Needles to ask you which you’ll rather choose, after all, you clicked this link cos you obviously want to know how to stay productive and get better while this whole virus situation lasts.
Worry less, it’s gonna end someday, soon!
Without further ado, let’s get to some things you could do at home during the lockdown.
71 Productive and Fun Things to do while stuck at home during the lockdown
- Listen to audiobooks
If you are lazy like me, you may find it really challenging to finish a book in a good time. Audiobooks are your best bet in this lockdown time.
Find and download as many online.
- Read books
For the less lazy ones, there are many good reads you could start with this time. From self-development books to career and leadership book reads, the list is endless.
- Write novels/poems
You’ve been craving to express your literary ingenuity right? Do the damn writing now! The coronavirus may never happen in your life-time again – we don’t even pray for it, do start writing now.
- Write songs
There are lots of inspiring thoughts for some good music right now. Get a paper and pen and start writing as the spirit directs. I know some dudes who already got a whole album ready.
Just let this lockdown end first, you’ll be surprised at what people have been up tp.
- Improve your dancing skills
When were you planning to become a better dancer? On your wedding day? Better start learning some steps now.

Another cool and productive activity you could do in this compulsory quarantine period is to learn sign language. Aren’t you tired of being a bilingual when you could be a multi-lingual? Sign language is a good place to start.

You know coding is the new oil right? Still one of the most sought after skills of our time, a lot of young people want to add coding to their long list of skills.
Now is a good time to learn this skill or at least start learning it.

Movies are not a waste of time altogether, especially if you choose right. Self-Made is one movie everyone is talking about now and trust me, that movie’s got a lot of lessons it for an aspiring young person. So, that’s another fun thing to do during COVID-19.
Lay your hands on such movies and get busy learning life’s lessons. You already know, Netflix is your go-to place for movies.
- Watch documentaries
Some documentaries can change your life! Yes, I say so. A good way to spend your lockdown, trust me.
- Start blogging
