How students can make best of this quarantine of covid-19
The whole world is in an absolute bizarre situation due to the menace of covid-19 pandemic. We, the earthlings, have not even imagined how the outbreak of Coronavirus from China, Wuhan would choke the entire world with severe grip of anxiety and destruction. It is the first time after Spanish Influenza in 1918 that led a fear within every individuals which is making nights sleepless and days restless. From government to private, and offices to educational institutions, all are closed for undeclared duration. However, staying at home, keeping oneself in isolation might be fascinating for students initially but will turn into boredom sooner or later.
Besides, there are some tips for students to make this lockdown productive and lucrative which are practically being undergone by me as a student.
(1) Making up Timetable:
It is needless to say, TIME is the most precious asset in the universe. It cannot be stored but utilised. Once is lost, cannot be earned back. So, you must consciously invest your time on fruitful works rather than just engaging yourself with unnecessary stuffs.
For this, you need to make a timetable in which there should be a proper period for sleeping, eating, studying and spending time with family members. It will let you develop an healthy routine. You will not only secure yourself from insomnia but also guard-up from irregular time of eating that usually leads to eating disorders with disfunctional body system. You will equally earn respectful status and blessing of parents by giving them time.
(2) Reading books:
Education and learning bear no excuse of time and age limitation. Eventually Education also turns a deaf ear to the excuse of Coronavirus lockdown.
To create the situation softer, books become the best friends of students. Bounding yourself with text books of school and college for months and years sound horrible. Doesn’t it?
Why not read some inspirational books or novels in these days! Books which have changed lives of millions of people like; 1st, Think and grow rich, 2nd, Rich dad poor dad, 3rd, The Alchemist, 4th, Success habits, 5th, How to win friends and influence people, and so on. Read these books to make your days beautiful as I am doing till lockdown prolongs.
(3) Exploring writing impression:
As a freelance writer, I better know the affection of writing. You too can take an initiative in the cosmos of writing. Yo can pen articles and letters to the editor of newspapers and magazines on social and political issues. Once you get through your first publication, I am sure, you won’t stop writing because the love of writing pulls you into the melody of its waves. Anyway, this is a perfect time in examining the writing comprehension.
(4) Online learning:
Governments of all countries have restricted for outings and even for very purposes. Corresponding, do you really need outings where everything is just under your finger-tip? Meanwhile, students must gauge internet for online learning. There are certain things to seek and adopt for a wholesome career. Calligraphy, painting, cooking, marketing, coding, graphic designing and learning an international language like “English” essentially through online learning are on trends now a days.
(5) Prioritizing health:
Health is probably the first foremost priority. We ought not to neglect health for the sake of jobs and studies. Being healthy requires exercise on daily basis. Yoga and meditation are the crucial forms for an healthy body. It will energizes body and enhances the subconscious mind deliberately. It is indeed a much needed concern particularly in this situation where the Coronavirus is just some feet away outside of home. You would continue develop this great habit even after coronavirus finishes InshAllah.
(6) Watching T.V and playing games:
Teenage is a golden period when there is nothing to be worried about but to enjoy every chores of life. We usually indulge ourselves very much hectic in studies. Why not watch T.V, keeping studies aside for some moments! Significantly, you may also prefer documentaries. On the other side, students can move ahead for contests like cards, scrabble, puzzle and similar brain-boosting games.
(7) Starting a YouTube channel:
Starting your own YouTube channel will yield you the unforgettable experience owing to the concerned coronavirus lockdown. It is a plus point for students who would not only lead their passion but also cop-up all the necessities of independent life in near future.
(8) Performing prayers:
Almighty Allah is the greatest! We, the Muslims, have been bestowed the best and complete religion ( Islam) of Allah. He conferred us Namaz and Holy Quran. Namaz is the light of truth and purity. And Quran is the key to any problem. We should get in touch with our religion thus to get out of the Coronavirus pandemic. May Almighty Allah protect us from this catastrophe!
