6 inspiring stay at home ideas

have you been putting something off to an undefined future? This is the future!

There will be no better time to do things you never had time for. It is time to think about how to spend this time productive, effective and with a specific goal. On this occasion, it is worth asking yourself: What is worth investing your time, attention and energy in? We decided to share some of our ideas with you. Whether you’re a fan of sport, film, or literature, you’ll find something for yourself!

Improve muscle mobility

Since you don’t have access to gym equipment and weights, it’s worth focusing on what you usually don’t have time for after regular training – stretching and improving muscle mobility. Skipping stretching not only increases the risk of injury but also has a direct impact on training results. Regardless of whether you can organize a home gym or not, remember to spend 15 minutes a day on stretching exercises. To do the stretching exercises you just need a wall, a sofa and virtually every stable object that will allow comfortable support. Remember to hold at least 30 seconds in any position. By doing stretching each day, you’ll be able to see your progress more easily. If every day you manage to shift the stretch limit of the muscle by at least a few millimeters, you can consider it a success!

Catch up on cinema classics

Streaming services are a great and convenient thing, but they have the most prominent feature of new movies, which are usually nothing more than killing time. Thus, our stay at home forced by the threat of COVID-19 is conducive to a little digging on streaming platforms and reach for the cinema classics, which we still have not managed to catch up. Because let’s face it – there’s always something to catch up on. This fun will never end.

This should be a time of culinary experiments! Now you have some time – why not just use it to prepare new dishes according to a recipe from the Internet, or the cookbook that you bought a long time ago and never used? Regular meals are very important, especially during the period of exposure to infection, therefore this way of spending time is not only fun but also desirable.
