What to do while currently in Copenhagen
If you’re at home, you probably have a shelf full of books that you’ve always wanted to read but never got to. Or perhaps you have some texts that you’ve saved on your phone under “read later.” This is the perfect time to take your mind off the current stressful situation and dive into a literary world, at least for a an hour or two a day.
Also, writing or keeping a journal and getting those thoughts and feelings out on paper can be a true stress reliever during times like these.
- Keep the communication going with your loved ones
You can use this time to reconnect with your loved ones through different video options online. Keeping everyone up-to-date about yourself, making sure everyone is healthy and well and “making someones’ day” by giving them a good laugh is a great way to maintain strong relations even when you cannot physically spend time together.
Virtual coffees and dinner dates with a friend, family member, a loved one, or a “double-date” even with another couple is the thing to do during these corona times. Why not enjoy someones’ company while everyone stays in the comfort of their home? Times like these sometimes ask us to adapt to another lifestyle, but why not make the best of it?
As we all know, keeping active is crucial to our well-being. When you’re stuck inside for a longer period of time and running or going to the gym is no longer an option, yoga and stretching are the way to go. These are activities you can do on your own floor or balcony. There are many videos online that you can follow while doing these activities, and you can also tune into live-stream yoga classes available online.
- Take a walk on the beach
One of the many great things about Copenhagen, besides beautiful architecture and charming streets with cosy cafes, bars and restaurants, is that the the beach is very close. Right in the city! You can take a beautiful uninterrupted walk on the beach, feel the fresh air and enjoy the calming sound of waves. Oh, and you can avoid people! Amagerstrand Park is a perfect place close to the city where you can reconnect with nature.
The entire LuggageHero team wish you good health and positive vibes!
We all need to take the measures in Copenhagen serious in order to flatten the curve and prevent coronavirus from spreading. In these times we can see, that actions of every individual matter. If coronavirus can spread so fast, how about a smile and love? Take care of yourself, take care of others.
