It must be frustrating to have all your travel plans postponed or cancelled due to the unfortunate breakout of the covid-19 pandemic, we have all been through it! It helps to remember that you are not alone, and think positively that it will all be over soon.

After spending a lot of time in home quarantine and working from home, it comes as no surprise that everyone is looking for a way to destress and still enjoy their days off during the pandemic. That’s why we thought of multiple methods and ideas that you can try to take your mind off the negative current situation.

  • Take this time as an opportunity to reinvent yourself

It could be the chance you always wanted to work on all your pending new years resolutions to improve yourself. You no longer have an excuse! It is important to make a list of all the goals that you would like to achieve on multiple levels such as your career, health and fitness, personal growth or any other aspect of your life that you feel requires change.

You could do it on your own and find the pace you are comfortable with or join a virtual group or community of people that share the same goals and work together to achieve them.

  • Create virtual activities with friends

It is safe to say that we are blessed with the availability of technology that facilitates the constant connection with our friends, family and loved ones and this can be utilized by sharing experiences together virtually by reading a book together, watching a movie together in real time as well as many activities and daily tasks that can become more fun when done with the virtual presence of people!

  • Who said you can’t be chilling on an island?

With the lack of available leisure travelling options, many countries have turned their attention to the enhancement and development of inbound activities and destinations due to the growing demand of locals and residents for inbound tourism and staycations to alleviate stress and snap out of the quarantine influenced routine cycle that people have fallen in.

Booking a staycation at a resort or hotel with a view and activities can give you the holiday vibes without compromising your safety.

  • Rediscover your interests


Travel is all about discovering new places, new cultures, new cuisines and fashion. Even if you can’t travel right now the discovery loving nature of a traveler will remain, it is only right to treat your traveler soul by continuing to discover new things such as secret spots in your hometown, or even rediscover your interests and hobbies which will give you room to explore different places, activities, and communities to be apart of for a similar discovery experience.
