- Watch an Italian 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 Rome while you are in Rome? It suddenly changes your current experience of the city. For a list of the 10 best Italian movies of all time, click here.
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 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, 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 yoga, stretching and meditating can help you feel better. 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.
You can also read this great article on the website of the Italian Ministry of Health on how to follow correct lifestyles while staying at home curing the coronavirus pandemic.
