What to do while currently in Montreal
- Food delivery
Restaurants are closed but that doesn’t need to prevent you from trying delicious food and keeping your body fueled and healthy. You can visit Ubereats or other delivery websites, pick anything you want and have it delivered to your location.
- Watch a Canadian movie
If you can’t explore the city because of the restrictions, you can watch an Italian movie instead! We all know that feeling when we watch a movie, we see a scene filmed where we’ve been and we scream ‘I’ve been there!” How about watching a movie set in Montreal or anywhere in Canada while you are in here? It suddenly changes your current experience of the city. Here is a list of the 7 movies on Netflix filmed in Montreal.
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 someone’s’ 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 via online video chat is the thing to do during these corona times. Why not enjoy someone’s’ company while everyone stays in the comfort of their home? Times like these sometimes ask us to adapt to another lifestyle, and why not make the best of it?
- Get some fresh air on your balcony
All attractions, parks and gardens in Montreal are currently closed to the public until further notice. Although people are advised to stay at home or practice « social distancing, » going for a walk, a run and getting some fresh air is very important for your health. We suggest making use of your backyard if you have one or simply going on your balcony more frequently during the day for some fresh air if you don’t feel safe going out and far from your home.
As we all know, keeping active is crucial to our well-being. When 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.
The entire LuggageHero team wishes you good health and positive vibes!
It’s important that we all follow the measures set by the authorities and protect ourselves and others. By social distancing and taking care of our hygiene, we are lessening the change of the virus spreading. We are in this together and every individual matters. If coronavirus spreads this fast, imagine how contagious some love and a smile are?
