In this pandemic situation, make sure to avoid any unwanted contact and maintain proper hygiene. Eat healthy stuff and exercise regularly. Even you cannot hit the gym or go outside for a workout. There is plenty of indoor exercises you can do. You can blend your workout with some Yoga and meditation too. Whatever your preferences, but make sure to include that in your daily life.

  • Make a To-do list: Make a to-do list in the first hour of the morning. Break your days for all the essential things and make a note with a checkbox next to it. Make sure to include exercise and learning in that list. If possible assign some time slot for each of the tasks but if you don't have any preference about timing, you can do stuff as it suits you. This to-do list will organize your day and help you keep the focus on the important things. Also if you are able to complete your entire list by the end of the day, it will bring a sense of achievement and positivity.

  • Learn New Things: Spare at least 2 hours every day or at least Mon-Fri to learn something new. With the advancement of technology and n number of online tutorial portals its very easy to learn anything nowadays. We will mention some of our favorite online learning portal here.

They provide courses related to Engineering and Management from some of the prestigious institute in India.

Even the paid content is also not expensive, most of the time courses are on sale and you can get them for a 90% discount.

All the courses are designed by people working at Google. You can get a competition certificate too at the end of the course. The only downside is that you don't have many options here.
    • Edx: This is another nice portal for online learning, similar to other platforms they provide most of the courses for free. Most of the courses provided here are from renowned universities like Havard, MIT, etc. The only downside is you have to pay a hefty amount if you want a certificate.

This is where the to-do list will very help full. During this pandemic time, your employer is already in a doubt about the performance of each employee, so you have to make sure you are completing the task on time. Give your 100% and try to complete the assigned tasks on time. Completing an assigned task on time might not look big on a daily basis but in the long run, it will help you boost your confidence and your efficiency. 

    • Enjoy Weekend: Give yourself a break during the weekend, do whatever you like to do during this time. Follow your hobby, do whatever you like play video games, cooking, listen to music, dance, etc.
