Catch up on your video game library
Among the large selection of free games that the Epic Games Store has been offering over the last few weeks, the various compilations of free titles available that we have been offering you, and the possibly even longer library of pending games that many have, it seems almost impossible that there is room for boredom at home.
In fact, online games themselves are a great option against monotony, adding the ability to communicate with other people without any risk of contagion, and giving us that dose of socialization that we could miss inside our home.
Board games: beyond the parcheesi
Whether it's an old deck of cards, a chess board, classic games like the Trivial or the Party, or the latest installment of the Zombicide, the recent boom and bust of board games to all kinds of establishments and bars, and even the celebration of fairs and workshops, it has achieved that in most homes we have at least one game to be able to resort in case of emergency.
Although in case we don't have it, we really we can order it online. And it is that although some supermarkets have been affected by the enormous demand for some of their products (with momentary situations of "shortages"), it seems that the madness has not yet reached this entertainment sector, so we will have all the facilities normal to get any game without having to leave the house.
Get fit from your living room
Every beginning of the year comes the painful New Year's resolutions, among which the great classics of lose weight and get fit. And it is that we do not need to pay any monthly fee or buy any large machine to be able to follow healthy habits.
In fact, new technologies and the rise of online video content We have been leaving for years numerous channels dedicated to sports practices at home, with spaces and virtual gyms such as Patry Jordan or Sergio Peinado, and even personal trainers such as ORUX or MalagaEntrena.
Although if you prefer to do the exercises at your own pace, you can always use the exercise charts, with websites like Darbee that combine exercise titles with those of some well-known characters from movies, series or games to motivate us.
So, in the event that we do not have any accessory or tool itself such as dumbbells, weights or capes, we can always resort to some gadgets from our home to replace them, such as bottles or carafes filled with water (taking into account that each liter will be equivalent to a kilogram of weight), broomsticks, and even chairs or stools.
Invest your time in training yourself
As Juvenal's satires well enacted, «Mens sana in corpore sana». And it is not only advisable to stay physically active, but it can also help us to occupy our thoughts in some tasks beyond just seeing "the silly box."
That is why we also suggest that you use this free time to dedicate it to take an online course, whether it is subsidized regulated certifications as in the case of Fexma, or any of the free courses taught on some of the community websites such as Udemy.
In the same way, we can also take advantage of train ourselves in the artistic field, whether practicing in the event that we have a musical instrument indoors, making drawings or paintings, and even redirecting our time in other hobbies such as manual work, which we could even sell later through pages and digital stores like Etsy.
Travel wherever you want with your imagination
Finally, we can always recover one of the most abandoned hobbies in recent years: the reading. Whether it's comics or manga, light novels, or the great classics of Greek philosophers, books have always offered us a little haven of peace and entertainment indoors, helping us develop our imaginations to bring to life and recreate all of these settings and described characters.
However, although many of you still have a paper book in your homes, it is true that the arrival of electronic books meant a great change in the distribution of the written word. Thus, we can find a large selection of both paid and free titles on Amazon, and other 100% free portals such as Elejandria.
