At this time of COVID-19 threat, people are encouraged to stay home to avoid the spread of the disease. For parents, you can make the most of your time at home even if both of you are not homebodies. We’ve listed five productive activities you can do with your partner.
1. Reassess your goals for 2020.
Travel goals or out of town getaways might be postponed due to the current global situation. But there must be some other things you can accomplish at this time. If you haven’t ticked off anything on your list, you can now revisit your goals and see which ones you can complete while at home. May it be reading the books you hoarded from the last book sale or scouting for your dream house and lot, now is the best time.
You can browse through several options for your property hunting in Cebu. If you prefer the northern part, there is Serenis Plains, the newest subdivision in Liloan, or Amoa in Compostela with ready for occupancy units. If you prefer the south, there is Woodway Townhomes in Talisay, or Minglanilla Highlands in Minglanilla.
2. Revisit that long-forgotten project.
Since you’ll have a lot of time at home, you and your partner can finish that house extension project that was put on hold for a long time or that cabinetry that you dreamed of having. It’s also very helpful when you’re a handy couple since you can do these yourselves or with little help without having to spend much.
If you get a house in Serenis Plains, you surely will get most of what you paid for. The house design supports future home improvements or extensions which gives more flexibility to homeowners.
3. Do general cleaning.
Put those masks on, and get ready to dust all the dirt off. If you’ve only managed to sweep the floors before, now is the time for a general cleanup. Prepare the vacuum cleaner or feather dusters to reach the top of the overhead cabinets, bleach or baking soda to clean off dirt on kitchen tile grouts, or ladders to reach the roof and gutters.
You may also want to do general cleaning on your digital files. If you haven’t sorted those personal photos or videos on your phone or on your laptop, you’d realize how enjoyable it is to scan through old and fun videos while organizing them.
4. Learn a new skill together.
Staying at home gets boring when you let it be. Why don’t you try something new like learning a new skill or hobby? You can read books about dressmaking while your partner can watch online tutorials about karate, or just try out a new recipe together. You’ll be amazed with how skillful you two can be just by spending more time with yourselves.
5. Do fun stuff.
If you have young children at home, unleash the kid in both of you. Play with them. Be one with them. You’d be surprised to know of their other personalities you haven’t discovered before.
You can also do vlogging for fun. Share anything under the sun and show the funky sides of you.
