Everyone is under lockdown, which means everyone is sitting at home but everyone’s day looks very different. According to your zodiac, here is how your lockdown looks, and here are some things you can do under lockdown -
You’re probably a little disappointed that you have no gifts to look forward to this birthday - but don’t worry, this lockdown won’t be a total bust. You’re going to end up making the most of it by working out and getting fit. You may also get a lot of work - personal and otherwise - done over this period!
You have dreamed about this day forever, locked up in your house with enough supplies to last a fortnight, tucked away from human interaction. You will want to host a few video calls until conversations last. Then you can get down to journaling and listing out all the wonderful things you’d want in life once this period is over.
It’s time to listen to some podcasts, attend webinars and become a Reddit or Quora addict. Take a step back and appreciate the silence as well - you finally have some free time from all your days of overworking. Try downloading a few meditation apps that could help you centre yourself.
Aren’t you having a ball lying in bed doing absolutely nothing? Give yourself a manicure or meditate to take in the sound of silence – do whatever you like, but for a change, do it for you. This is a period of self-healing, so make the most of it and relax and reset for the coming months.
You’re forced to introspect, applaud for yourself and fall in some much-needed self-love. Go down the rabbit hole of YouTube tutorials to cut your own hair, explore the dark web and do some self-care routines. After all, you still want to charm your colleagues and friends on video calls!
You’re still obsessing over the COVID-19 stats, but it’s high time you took a step back and reflected on everything else. While you can be tightly wound due to your finely tuned nature, in many ways this is your time. Channel your thriftiness and work on some DIY projects to kill time.
If you’re huddled among family and friends, then you’re as happy as can be, but even alone, you seem to be just fine. Air signs need to talk, so if you have the option maybe try and get locked up with someone you really like so you can vent out when things get annoying.
You hate to open up, but you love lending your listening ear to others. If you could, you’d curl up in this solitude and never leave the house, even for groceries. But you can’t hide from those 2,312 texts your family and friends have left to check on you. While it’s great to be the support system, it’s time to recognise your mental wellbeing needs and accept your feelings.
You thrive on social interactions, so you’re finding it hard to even sit at your desk for more than 30 minutes at a stretch. You also get bored at the drop of a hat. It’s time to embrace your sappy, sentimental side. Dive into that pile of old letters, photographs, movie-tickets and postcards you collected over the years, but refrained from exploring. Don’t get carried away and text your ex though, that’s not the kind of memories you want to relive.
It’s time to ace the art of doing absolutely nothing. Stop being picky and monitoring your lockdown buddies’ behaviours. The world won’t end if your roommate leaves her hairbrush at the sink. You will be cleaning and clearing a lot of your room and house - which is good - but you can also do other things to relax. Do dome reading, watch a movie, binge watch show - it’s okay t take a break.
You have lived like this forever, you have aced this life of a tortoise in its shell. You can just keep doing whatever it is that you did before - nothing has changed for you. The only issue is that your entire family might get to you with all the noise and excessive talking that you’re not used to - but your only option is to embrace it. If it begins to get too much, excuse yourself, plug in your headphones, and escape.
You can unleash your creativity, pursue one or all your 57 hobbies, catch up with your best friends, and of course binge-watch your favourite movies. You may slack a little on work, but it's okay. Schedule your knitting, painting and other hobbies but remember to factor in some time to work. Acing working from home could be your new hobby.
Figure out what your lockdown looks like, and remember to stay home and stay safe!
