The days and nights can be incredibly long and dull when you are stuck at home. If you have a small residence, the toll may increase over time because the mind craves space and variety of scenery.
One of the biggest challenges going forward will be to keep active at home and to have fun. That might get challenging but we have to try.
What can you do? Well, you can play games, of course. When you are done each day with remote work and the kids are done with online schooling, you better set up time for games.
Here are some ideas:
- Card games
- Board games
- Hide and seek
- Marco Polo (in the pool)
- Multiplayer online games
- Sports games
- Arcade games
- Military style war games
- Historical games
There are also thousands of websites or apps where you can play against people or computers around the world. Imagine getting better at chess by increasing your number of games against better players. Card games are also great, either virtual or with regular cards.
Yes, games can be boring after a while. But you can counter that by having different games every day and contests or prizes too.
Make sure to give each member of the family some choices for the games to be played. People have different preferences and different interests.
Try to have as much fun with games as you can. Even though there may be just a few of you at your home, you can still have a ton of fun. When this world crisis over, you and your family could have vastly improved your game skills.
