Read Time: 2 minutes

Channel your creativity through these viral challenges 

 

 

With the announcement of the extension of Metro Manila’s enhanced community quarantine until mid-May, one may be at his or her wit’s end trying to figure out what else to do inside the house.

 

When the latest releases on Netflix and Amazon Primetrust me, it’s worth a subscription!—no longer feel appealing or scrolling through one’s feed and revisiting memories of old seems monotonous, maybe a quarantine challenge for the month ahead? These prompts are worth exploring especially when you’ve perfected your Dalgona Coffee, Zoom etiquette and TiKTok challenges.

At Home Fitness Challenges

The World Health Organization recommends “150 minutes of moderate-intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity per week, or a combination of both.” This can be achieved even at home without special equipment. This can be done through taking short, active breaks during the day, walking, meditating or taking online classes.

 

 

If all else fails, make your own personal challenge like purging your phone (or closet), catching up on your to-read pile. Just a friendly reminder that during this period, it’s okay to be productive and it’s okay not to be!
