You’re stuck at home with a restricted way out. The TV runs throughout; binge watching and eating are your best bet. 

While nature outside is breathing a sigh of relief, we must be mindful of our resources indoors. 

Here are a few tips to keep yourself in check:

Don’t waste: Food, or energy. If you’ve been used to wasting those bits at the end of your meal, you may want to reconsider. Food is in short supply and countless are still stranded for a full meal a day. Cook what you like so that you don’t end up wasting.

Save your energy and don’t go out unless urgent. Do something productive like art.

Switch off the television: Read instead. Spend time getting to know those books on the shelves. Read to your kids or even have reading sessions with book buddies online.

Turn off the lights: Sitting at home doesn’t mean a fully lighted house. Turn off the lights and fans if you’re not in a room in the day time.

Shop wisely. Eat healthy.

Shop wisely: Shopping carts have been overflowing these past few weeks. Don’t take what you don’t need. In a time of crisis panic buying can make us stock up on items that we don’t generally use. Make a list of the things you need in small quantity. With shops open, and home delivery options you can still get your essentials in case you run short.

Less is more:  It’ll be easy to turn back to wasteful ways once all this rolls back to normal. Be aware and plan a sustainable life ahead.

Here’s to a happy, stay at home time!
