By now most of us are already bored out of our minds, yes, even those working from home.
I’m technically working from home but the question is, “Can you really work from home when you have 3 children and a husband to look after in a confined space?”
I have listed 5 things that you can do while waiting for your boss or client to call.
Yes, look at the ceiling fan and if it is dusty, get a cloth, some detergent and start cleaning it. And yes, get your loved ones involved. Why not add some spice to your family cleaning activity, take photos before and after and post it on your Whatsapp or FB.
Bake or Cook
Yummy! I am sure that you always wanted to work on your baking and cooking skills. Now is the time to put your skills to test. 14 days in isolation is good time to work on your tea time butter cake or experiment with several of those wonderful YouTube recipes that you have been clicking on during your internet surfs.

Plop on the sofa and binge watch Netflix originals. If you don’t have a shared account try the 1-month free trial. This is only practical if you don’t have kids and yes, I’m not promoting Netflix.
Bring out the Board Games
Time to take out your dust laden old school board games like MasterMalaysia Play2Learn, Monopoly, Risk or even Scrabble.

Green Fingers! Gardening in isolation can be a great way to pass the time during social distancing and self-quarantine.
