If you have tested positive for Covid-19, you will have to self-isolate for ten days. If you are suffering from the symptoms and feel very unwell, there’s unlikely to be much you can do to make self-isolation enjoyable for you, but if you have tested positive without symptoms, read on.
- Keep in touch with family and friends with daily video calls, phone calls and messaging. Obviously, if they are busy or working, don’t call and message them too much or they will find you annoying. To make video calls as enjoyable as possible, upgrade to a fast wi-fi plan by contacting Vodafone Dundalk.
- Listen to music. Do not underestimate the power of music! Listening to music releases a ‘happy hormone’ called Dopamine in the brain. It can get you through any difficult time including boring times like self-isolation.
- Use the time to sort your house out. You have ten days to spring clean and organise all of your papers, clothes and items Marie Kondo style. It’s a very productive way to utilise this time and it will definitely make your life easier in the long-term as everything will be tidy and organised.
- Start writing that book you never have time for! If you have always dreamed of writing a book, sit down and start. Try to write without expectation that it will be amazing or has to be. Just let the ideas flow. Getting started is the most difficult part, so once you realise how fun it is, the easier it’ll be to stay motivated.
- Lastly, use this time to make all the phone calls you have been putting off. Phone calls to long-distance family members to let them know you’re thinking of them, or phone calls to companies to sort out a problem with the service you’re receiving that is taking forever to fix.
