Since the COVID-19 pandemic has struck the whole world, it is best for everyone to stay indoors and bring the introverted selves of ours. So, it is time to figure out what to do during our time at home. As an introvert, this is a guide with some of our suggestions for you to do at home during self-isolation.
1Beauty and Self-care Rituals
Now is the time to focus back on your self-care rituals. Before, we have been busy with work and other stuff which make us forget and miss regular self-care routines. So, here are some of beauty routines you can do with all those extra hours at home.
- Get your beauty sleep: It is important to get full eight hours of sleep for both of your physical and mental beauty.
- Try facial masks: Give yourself homemade face mask recipes to upgrade your skin condition to the next level. You can either get inspired from beauty bloggers from YouTube or try your own homemade recipes. It is fun, easy and useful!
- Workout: Not only does exercise help you with your weight loss but also it increases your energy level and combats various health conditions and diseases.

Researches also show that knitting helps you with stress and anxiety so start working on it.
7Read Your Favourite Books
In order to reduce your screen time, reading is another way to spend your time. So, go to the bookshelf, choose your favourite book or something you want to try reading, find the best spot to sit, grab a cup of coffee and you are all set! It definitely will be a paradise, forgetting about your work, stress and many other things that can distract you.
With all of these heartbreaking issues happening globally, it may be stressful and overwhelming so it is important to take care of yourself.
