Use the time wisely

This quarantine thing might not be as bad as we thought. I’m not talking about the virus or finances, I’m talking about psychologically. We have all this time which can be easily wasted by just sitting on the coach, eating a bag of hot Cheetos, and binge watch shows until hopefully things return back to normal. I’m guilty of scrolling through TikTok for hours and leaving the app neither happier nor more intelligent than when I started. A pointless vacuum of time.

One thing to think about is, do you want to come out of corona-cation on top or from where we started? Time is a gift and we have been given the mother lode. We have time to do things we wouldn’t have been able to find time for whether that’s learning to do a backflip or finally picking up an instrument. There’s plenty of ways to grow in this pandemic, we only have to put in the work.
