Weekends during the Holy Month of Ramadan, which is otherwise packed with Iftar gatherings and meeting the near and dear ones, is different this year with everyone adhering to the COVID-19 safety measures. And it's indeed a great act of responsibility if you are doing so. After all, Ramadan teaches us to be more disciplined and to have self-control. It also instills a sense of empathy within us and in this current time, what more one could ask for. So this weekend stay at home, stay safe and indulge in many home-based activities that will keep you motivated. But don't forget to breathe in some fresh air.
Do some gardening: If you live in a villa head to your garden and spend time amidst the greenery around. For those who live in a flat get some indoor plants.
Watch virtual wildlife: This weekend, livestream some of the wildlife tours. Thanks to technology, now we can watch a range of wildlife around the world from the comforts of our home. Be it penguins, lions, elephants or some exotic birds, grab a cup of coffee and watch them from home.
Make some bread: Baking bread has become a popular pastime since last year from the time the pandemic hit us. From sourdough to muffins, there are many varieties and this weekend why not try making them at home? With recipes and methods easily available on You Tube, baking bread can be a great new hobby during the weekend. After all nothing is more comforting than the smell of fresh baked bread in your home.
Breathe in some fresh air: It's not just a pleasure but the need of the hour too. Step outside your homes early morning and get a deep breath of fresh air. It helps clear your lungs and gives you more energy and mental foucs. If you find yourself feeling stressed and tired being at home all the time, go out but ensure you go when walking areas and beaches do not have too many people. Your body and your mind will thank you.
