In the last year most people have experienced that they have a lot more time on their hands than they are used to. This is all due to the worldwide pandemic that has affected almost everyone. Because most countries have experienced restrictions on what you can do, and a lot of the things most people usually do, they have been capable of doing. So what to do with all this time? Well, you could start to get to know your smartphone a little better and learn all the different features it has and all the apps that are available for it. Many people do not know exactly how much they can do on their smartphone.
Poker night on your Smartphone
In most countries there have been restrictions on how many people you could see. This has been hard for a lot of people, because many people are used to spending a lot of time with other people. It has been especially hard for clubs and such activities. However, it could be worth it to look into whether or not you would be able to do some of the activities on your smartphone. As an example, maybe you are used to having a poker night with the boys once a week, then you can easily play poker with the boys at an online casino in India. Most casinos nowadays have a really good app, where you easily can arrange a game of poker with the boys. Even if you don’t like poker, there are usually a lot of games that you can play on the casino app. So if you have a bridge club that has been closed down due to restriction, maybe it is time to look into whether or not you can play bridge together on your smartphone. Even if you don’t have a club you usually play with, you are just bored by being home and unable to do much all day. Then there are a lot of games that you can play yourselves. There are also a lot of games, where you can play with strangers. This can be a great way to meet new people during lockdown. Especially if you are feeling a bit lonely by not being able to see any of your friends, and you miss being able to go out and meet new people and make new friendships.
Count your steps
It has been very popular to count steps the last couple of years. A lot of people have different goals on how many steps they want to take each day, and it is recommended to take 10.000 steps everyday. However, a lot of people don’t know that their smartphone has a built in steps counter. Since most people are always carrying their smartphone, the smartphone will literally be able to count every step you take each day. If you experience having a lot of time due to corona, it may be good for you to set a goal for how many steps you want to take each day. By doing this you ensure that you are actively thinking about being active every single day. And there are a lot of advantages by taking a walk every single day. It can also be very refreshing if you are at home all day everyday to get out of the house for a bit and experience a different scenery.
Shopping on you phone
You may not know this but most clothing stores actually also have an app that you can shop on. So if you also have developed an online shopping addiction during lockdown, now is the time to check whether your favourite stores have an app also. With the app you can shop all day everywhere. There are also a lot of second hand platforms such as depop that also has an app. And we all know that it is much better for the environment to shop second hand pieces. However, there are also other advantages with shopping second hand pieces, because sometimes you can get a really good deal on something that may still be in store, or somethin you have been looking at for a long time, but has been too expensive to justify buying. Another great feature of the second hand apps, is that you can upload things yourself. So if you, due to your online shopping addiction, have a bit too much clothes and it is starting to spill out of your wardrobe. Maybe it is time to do a wardrobe clearout and upload some things to these apps. By doing this not only are you helping the environment by giving your clothes a second life, but you can earn some money, so you can buy some new things.
