Apart from wearing a mask, remaining socially distant, and frequently washing your hands, the best thing ordinary people can do to limit the spread of COVID-19 is to stay at home. This many months into the pandemic, you’ve probably already watched all the good Netflix content.
It’s natural to look for engaging activities. The good news is there’s a whole world of entertainment right on your wrist. Check out these apps, which will help you fight boredom during the pandemic.
Fitness Apps on Your Phone
The modern world of technology is so dazzling that you can practically have a personal trainer right on your wrist. Pick the right fitness app for the Apple Watch for a difference-making fitness boost you can feel immediately.
Track your exercises, measure your progress, and even watch a personal trainer to get further inspiration and instruction. Just because you’re at home doesn’t mean you need to be on the couch. Most gyms are closed, but with the right app, you can still keep fit.
It’s easy to get sucked into the grind of work life. It’s important to remember to breathe, which isn’t always as easy as it sounds. Next-generation mindfulness apps combine meditation with therapeutic insights.
Look for apps developed by mindfulness experts to make your life less stressful, calmer, and more conscious. The pandemic is stressful for everyone: don’t forget to breathe.
Games on Your Phone
One of the most entertaining ways to spend your time is still old-fashioned games, but with a modern twist! Rather than trivia board games, now, apps on your phone like Quiz Run let you challenge friends to answer trivia questions as quickly as they can.
The app displays your opponents answering the questions in real-time, which gives you the feel of being in a real game show. You can also make bets in the app, which ramps up the stakes and the excitement!
Eating is fun and a physical requirement. Whatever your motivation to eat, some apps help you do it better, no matter how niche or specialized your taste in food.
There are apps you can get right on your phone that will help you find Quebec’s most famous food export — the legendary poutine. If somebody is cooking up fries, yummy cheese curds and sumptuous gravy, you’ll know about it!
You might already know the establishments in your own backyard, but such apps can be convenient when you’re exploring a new neighbourhood on a walk. There are also food apps that let you order a meal to your home, for when you don’t feel like stepping out.
Everybody has been affected by the pandemic in at least some capacity. Even though you may feel bored with being indoors for so long, nothing is more important than continuing to listen to local health experts. Hopefully, these apps for your phone will help make your life more enjoyable.
