7 Things to do when you’re bored of studying online

Humankind is probably facing its biggest enemy right now in the face of coronavirus. The rapid spread of the pandemic has resulted in worldwide quarantine and a self-isolation period.

This is hard for many because, at the end of the day, we humans are social animals. We all must be going through some degree of boredom, especially students, who were meant to enjoy their youth with their friends and mates who now spend their days locked in their rooms continuing courses via online learning.

So, here are 7 things that students can do to keep themselves from getting bored.

1. Discover and read new books

Discover and read new books

When I suggest books, I don’t precisely mean your course study. Browse over the plethora of libraries online, and read some great minds like Albert Camus, Frederich Neitzsche, H. P. Lovecraft, to name a few of many. Read their work and fill yourself with every ounce of knowledge you can.

2. Shift your energy into learning new things

Shift your energy into learning new things

The internet is a Pandora’s Box when it comes to learning new things. You can find an exciting course almost everywhere. Surf through the wave and choose the course that fits you the best. Try crafting, Painting, Sculpturing, or maybe knitting. You can also spend your day away at DIY.org.

Just don’t be a couch potato and channel your energy to hone yourself.

3. Tap into your artistic side

Tap into your artistic side

Take out that dusty quill and notebook from your attic and start scribbling your thoughts as honestly as you can. Let out every emotion that has made a home in you during this pandemic.

It’ll help you to feel lighter.

Or give life to your most vibrant or darkest sides in the shape of the painting. Colour the canvas like you’ve been holding the brush for years.

And don’t stop until your creation makes you smile.

4. Make feasible plans for your future

Make feasible plans for your future

I know you can’t step outside right now, but you will be stepping out someday soon. And when you do, the world would’ve changed a lot. So it would be best if you were prepared for that change. Talk to yourself, be realistic and make a plan that you know fits your dreams the best and go for it with everything you’ve. Because if you can imagine it, you can do it as well.

5. Look after your health

Look after your health

At this moment, staying fit and healthy has become more than just a passion or trend. You must look after your body and mind. Make a workout schedule for yourself. And look for a peaceful place on your student property. Many student accommodations in countries like the UK, USA, and Australia have rooms/lawns built explicitly for yoga and meditation.

Do yoga to keep your brain healthy. Meditate to relieve stress. You can try some quick workouts to keep your body in shape. Eat healthily and strengthen your immune system.

6. Take over the kitchen

Take over the kitchen

This would be the best way to come closer to your parents. Give them a rest from the kitchen work for a day or two. Cook something for the entire family. It doesn’t matter how it will taste. Make it with love, and your parents would eat every bite like it’s the most delicious dish ever.

It’ll also prepare you for your bachelor life ahead when you live by yourself in accommodation.

7. Engage yourself in conversations

Engage yourself in conversations

A human being without human contact doesn’t remain much of a human. As it’s famously known, ‘we only know what we had once it’s gone.’ What was once free now has become a luxury. I’m talking about freedom. It’s evident that not being able to sit and talk to your friends is taxing your mind.

But you can still engage yourself with them online. Get in touch with your friends from school, college, and accommodation. Talk about current scenarios, exchange ideas, or have a good laugh. There’s nothing that lightens up as quickly as a good conversation.

While you try to do all or a few of this, make sure to focus on your studies as well. Strive hard and don’t give up on your dreams of studying abroad. And yeah, most importantly, maintain proper social distance.
