This is my second lockdown of the year, with the only difference that I am in a country that is not mine and without my family, which psychologically doesn’t help, but I think that you can definitely survive, especially If you can distract yourself.
My advice is to do the things you’ve always put off because you never had time, and now you have. I also recommend to spend a lot of time with family, sometimes you fight, true, especially because you spend too much time together, but you can do a lot of things, like cooking, playing, watching movies, and that’s what I did when I was in my home country, we had a lot of fun and it was good because we had the opportunity to know each other better.
I also recommend always doing something, some activities, so that you don’t have to be alone with your thoughts, which can be dangerous for your mental health, for example you could watch some movies or documentaries, you could keep yourself in shape by following some tutorials on YouTube, you could try to play an instrument or try to paint, you could even try new recipes. There are a lot of things you can do, from my point of view it’s important to do something, I know sometimes it’s boring to have so much time, but it can be useful and you can also find that you are good at one of these activities and turn them into a passion.
