Yoga and Meditation: Many people do not understand the importance or the role that yoga and meditation can play in their health. Relaxing your mind and body with breathing exercises are part of yoga and meditation. You can choose to play mild music when you practice these things along with your family. In case you are not aware of the yoga practices that you can take up you can choose to use the internet to find more information with videos explaining how to go about it.


Indulging in Light Physical Exercise: During normal days you would not have had the time for physical exercise or time to hit the gym. However, during this time of lockdown, you can choose to spend time on these activities to help your body stay fit.


Family Bonding: This would have been something you have not done in years in your busy schedule. However, during this time of lockdown, you can start building the lost bond with your family and spending time on different activities. This can include cooking, cleaning the house, and many other things that you may have not done before as a family.


If you can do even a couple of the above-mentioned things you would be able to not just kill time during the COVID 19 or coronavirus lockdown but also keep yourself engaged.
