What to do while currently in Miami
- Food delivery
The coronavirus situation doesn’t need to prevent you from trying delicious food and from keeping your body fuelled and healthy. You can visit Ubereats or other delivery websites, pick anything you want and have it delivered to your location.
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.
If you’re staying inside to avoid the coronavirus, you can still keep yourself entertained by binge-watching these hot-topic TV shows and movies suggested in this article.
- Visit the Zoo…San Diego’s Zoo…online!
San Diego’s Zoo installed live cams, so you can watch what the animals are doing at this exact moment. There are live cameras at the polar bear area, penguins, baboons, pandas, apes, koalas, giraffes’ grounds, elephants, tiger, owls, condors and even butterflies! Visit San Diego’s Zoo website to find all the live cams. This is an example of an only beauty – when we can connect with remote places and maybe replace Netflix with a real-time animal watch!
- 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 great for you. 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.
- Walk it out
If you are frustrated that your travel plans have been postponed or ruined altogether, it’s always best to walk it out. Even though most if not all attractions are currently closed, you can still go for a walk (remembering the 6-feet distance from others of course). You can use this silence in your favour and take a walk in nature, which is always soothing.
