For housewives who feel that staying at home is a boring job, even after the full-time job of cooking, dusting and cleaning there are plans for you. If you have some weekend plans of kitty party, and the weather has been a foe, don’t get upset. Use your #HomeAloneWeekend for something productive-
- Decorate your interiors with new color, but out of simple things, which are present in your house. For e.g. make some origami birds (following the you tube tutorials), this can give a sudden freshness to your bedroom, so no longer you need to derive freshness from #Barfi
- Alternatively, start a brand new painting for your drawing room, if you are an artist.
- If you are into writing, this is the day, to begin a new book or article.
- If you have been thinking long for making your skills, productive, use a lazy day at home to check out the plans, start sending applications and submissions at the relevant places. Stop thinking, start doing.
- If you are at leisure, and want some shopping, start surfing the online shopping sites, more than enough varieties and options will make you swoon, and possibly you can choose the best one, without being interrupted occasionally with “how can I help you mam?” J
Generally, being at home is not bad at all. If you think, staying in the house means, you have to be idle, you are wrong. The work structure is changing drastically.
Many a time, wives on a dependent visa, with their husbands in a foreign land feel, that is the end, ‘I don’t have the permission, so I cannot work, so what do I do! Build up a ladies’ association in the locality, and start regular meetings to prove that I am engaged, I am busy; I am social like my husband’. Well socializing in the common group is not bad at all, but it is better to be proactive on the Internet, than in the PNPC class of the social association.
There are thousands of opportunities online, which asks you to work from home, without drawing anything from the foreign government. Just find one, which suits your profile.
You can upgrade your professional skills by joining an edx course; this is the right opportunity to get yourself certified by universities like Harvard or MIT.
If you are a housewife in India, with good academic background, the same is applicable to you.
If you want to complete your educational status, start looking for distance courses today, from home, rather than engaging yourself in miffy arguments within the family (which often leads you to think that you need a social life outside).
Keep yourself busy with your hobbies, (doesn’t mean doing Facebook the whole day), but something like reading fictions, or journals, writing a review for a recent movie and posting it on LinkedIn, can be some common productive works.
If you are good at some art like knitting or cooking or painting, you can start practicing it today.
Indulge yourself in pleasurable music or dance (if you have the skill), that can help you think better, control your mind and body.
In your regular schedule, do not forget some indoor exercises, if you are unable to go for jogging due to bad weather, or in general, if you are at home.
