The reality of COVID -19 is long a story in a vacuum. Today the new reality shouts at people to keep away from others – at least 6 feet apart – practicing social distancing, or for some it’s self- isolation or quarantine, to sedate the spread of coronavirus. Due to which all the school, buildings, stores and restaurants and other gathering halls are closed or working for a few hours for maintaining the protocol of social distancing.
Now, after getting isolated and stuck in houses for a week or an indefinite time, we all feel a bit sluggish and may find ourselves quickly running out of things to do. To help turn away cabin fever, here are some of the fun activities to beat the boredom.
