5 Things to Beat the 21-Day Lockdown

We are going through tough times.  With the deadly outbreak of COVID-19, which has brought the whole country to a standstill, things have become gloomy. Students and their exam preparation have been affected too.

There is one thing for sure, though; you are still trying to prepare for your upcoming entrance exams or the beginning of your new school session, with all your dedication. We know you that you guys are working hard to study in these tough times, but you shouldn’t forget to do one thing during all this – that is to chill out a bit.

Relaxation and keeping calm are the needs of the hour during this situation. We know it’s tough to manage everything together, but you can still make the most of the gift of extra time you’ve got in this crisis. This can help you stay focused and maintain mental clarity for your goals.

As you can’t really ‘chill’ outside, we’ve got a fix for that as well. We’ve listed down 5 interesting ways to tackle the Corona quarantine blues that might prove quite helpful for you. Read on:

Watch that long-pending movie

What can be a better way of chilling than watching a movie that’s in your ‘to be watched’ list? Grab a cup of coffee with a bucket full of popcorn and start watching that movie you always wanted to.

You can always rewatch a movie that you have always loved because it’s never a problem. Since the times are not that good, you can always watch some high-spirited and motivational films like ‘3 Idiots’, ‘The Pursuit of Happyness‘ and ‘Lagaan‘.

Read that book lying on your bookshelf

Always occupied with schoolbooks, practice books, and books related to your studies? Well, now is the time to pick that book on your bookshelf that you’ve been meaning to read since forever.
The book can be a romantic one, adventure-based, mystery, fantasy or someone’s biography. This is the right time to pick it up and start reading, therefore, making the most of the ‘socially-distant’ time on hand.

Listen to soothing/relaxing music

Music is an excellent soother in times like these. Relaxing your mind is quite necessary as it gives you positive vibrations during tough times. Also, music is a great stressbuster. So, don’t wait anymore and create the playlist of your liking to give your mind peace and calm.

Play those forgotten board games

In our digitized world, we’re always occupied with our phones, laptops and other electronic gadgets. Due to all this, we’ve completely ignored those good old board games, which are probably wrapped in the dust right now on the top of your wardrobes.

This is the time to remove that dust from those boards and get them into action. Start playing games like Snakes & Ladders, Ludo, Monopoly, etc. It’s the right kind of chill you can experience. S. You could try putting together a jigsaw puzzle too!

Give all-important time to your family

You know that family is a real supporter in times like these. Due to a tight schedule and the pressure of studying, you often tend to give less time to your family, and it’s understandable. The current condition has given you the golden opportunity to spend more time with your loved ones. Make sure you cash in on the break.

All said and done, but something is still left. It’s your preparation. Yes, that’s important too. Of course, you can chill in your time off by doing the above-suggested things, but you must spare a little window for your preparations as well.

By practicing on the real exam screen, you get habitual to the exam environment and also improve your speed simultaneously. Go ahead, do Practise and Chill with myPAT.

As they say, when the going gets tough, the tough get going. And we know that you’re tough enough to beat the Corona blues out of your way. All the best and take care of yourself.
