The Latest Stay-At-Home Trends To Maintain Your Sanity

With the global COVID-19 pandemic, the whole world had to go into lockdown to fight the pandemic and protect lives. Staying at home for what seems like a lifetime can have effects on our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

Although the pandemic has given us some space to escape our busy lives, we might no longer have those everyday schedules and routines, which could end up making us feel disorganised and disorientated. 

But you are in luck! There are tips and new crazes for you to engage with to maintain your sanity and escape this new norm we are living in. Try these out:

  • Online Shopping
    This has become extremely popular in 2020 during the global pandemic. Statistics indicate that there are currently 2.05 billion online shoppers in 2020, which is a massive increase from the last 5 years. Now you get to shop for the cheapest deals safely, from the comfort of your home and do not have to stand in long lines or visit supermarkets and risk getting infected. Supermarkets have even started to sell grocery packages, including fresh fruit and vegetable boxes. So, while you shop for your essentials from your couch, a good idea would be to shop around for the best car insurance deal – simply upload your current policy to MiWay’s website, and you’ll be called with a comparative insurance quote.
  • Home-cooked meals and baked goods
    For the last few months, your social media feed must have been flooded with images of delicious banana bread, cinnamon buns, cookies, homemade bread, pasta and chicken wings. And if you haven’t heard of Dalgona coffee, where have you even been? With social distancing still a thing, and many restaurants and fast food places keeping dining numbers to a minimum, we have more time to try to create new things in our kitchens!
  • The virtual world
    Internet usage has increased drastically due to the Coronavirus pandemic and users are engaging more with social media platforms and other technologies. Due to lockdown and access to the internet, streaming home workout videos, binge-watching series, virtual calls, ZOOM meetings and the Chinese video-sharing social networking service Tik Tok, have become immensely popular and are a few ways to spice up your new norm! And while you’re engaging on the wonderful World Wide Web, why not seek out an online insurance quote?
  • Self-care
    Self-care has not only become a massive trend in the last few years but has become a way of life! The pandemic has brought much stress, uncertainty, as well as threats to our health. The practice of focusing on own our health and wellness is important for overall happiness and an extended lifespan. Practices such as pampering oneself with beauty and skin products, meditating, eating healthily, exercising and getting more sleep! But there is more - we can take care of ourselves at home by perhaps reading our favourite book, spending time in the garden, wrapped up in a blanket, dancing or even doing those things we have not done in a long time. So when you take care of yourself, take care of your home insurance policy too and secure your faves.

Do not let this new norm convince you that the world is coming to an end; it's time to start living your way
