The good thing about being at home…

first_imgMost of us have been trying our best to stay at home for at least two weeks now. These days, two weeks feels like two months. We don’t all have celebrity-sized estates that allow us to forget we’re under quarantine, so cabin fever is a real battle. While being stuck at home isn’t ideal, it’s hopefully shortening the life of the coronavirus, and that’s a definite plus. If you’re looking for some other advantages of having to stay at home, here are a few things to think about…You can stop putting “it” off: There’s probably a million projects you’ve been wanting to get to around your house. There’s probably a million books you’ve picked up and then put back down. And I know there’s a million shows that have been recommended to you, only for you to say “I’ll add that to my list.” If you’ve been putting stuff off until “tomorrow”, it is now “tomorrow”.You can examine your habits: I don’t know about you guys, but this quarantine has made me realize a lot of things. One thing I’ve realized is how often I dine out. I’ve tried to continue to support some of my favorite restaurants by getting take out here and there, but I’ve definitely been cooking at home WAY more than I ever have. I’ve enjoyed the savings. If you’re used to drinking the coffee at work every day you may not realize how much caffeine you’re drinking, but when you start running out of k-cups, you’ll realize real fast if you’re drinking too much.You can learn a lot about distractions: You’re at home, your spouse is home, and your kids are home. There are distractions everywhere. This will be life for now. Because of all the distractions around you, you’ll figure out quickly how to fight through them to get stuff done. Once this is over, you’ll hopefully be able to apply some of these distraction-fighting techniques to life at the office. 79SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.
