You’re not alone. I spend most of my days staying at home, doing what you call self-quarantine, with or without coronavirus. And I still miss the time when I took things for granted, something as simple as going out to eat without the anxiety that I might carry the virus on the way back.

4 Things to Do During Self-Quarantine (That Are Not Napping or Snacking)

I’ve never thought that I’d be able to write about a topic that I am an expert in. But when I do, it is ironically when there’s a pandemic outbreak like coronavirus. Or what some of you say Covid-19 case.

Now that almost all countries lockdown in their area, those who don’t still recommend people to do self-quarantine in order to prevent the spreading of the virus. I understand some of you might get quite frustrated with the idea of having to isolate yourself from your environment. But guess what?! I shamelessly do this all the time.

I’ve got the privilege to work from home. And when I don’t travel, what we call self-quarantine is basically my lifestyle. I barely meet people because I have all the conversations through e-mail, Slack, or Whatsapp.

Despite the fact I live with my parents, I have the second floor of my parents’ house for me since my sister lives in Jakarta. The only creatures that get in touch with me often are basically just my cats. Some people see it as a miserable thing to happen to someone. I’d say it’s a blessing.

So, in this post, I’ll share with you some things to do during self-quarantine, in case you have no idea what to do during this hard time for everyone. Believe me, self-quarantine is not that hard. The hard thing is those people who still have to go to work to make their ends meet during this time.

6 Lazy Songs: A Playlist for Homebody who Loves to Slack Around the House

I’m a homebody person. When I’m not traveling, you can easily find me working or taking a nap at home. That, except for when I’m in the mood to go out and find something to eat elsewhere. Other than that, I’m happy enough to wait for the delivery man to bring me some good food from outside. I’m like a real definition of a couch potato, and I’m not even sorry.

Just recently, one of my friends asked me out as he knew I just finished my Indochina trip. I told him that I’d let him know when I’m in the mood to go out, and he was like… No problem, I could pick you up at home.

What he doesn’t understand is that when I’m not in the mood to go out, it really doesn’t matter if he picks me up at home. I just won’t go out.

But then that event gave me an idea to create this post. I’m compiling some songs that are suitable for people like me: the couch potato who gets too comfortable at home. I’ve found only 6 songs on my playlist, so feel free to add it if you have some other songs to recommend! 🙂

But just what part of your day?
