How many of us can proudly state that they have not stepped out during the lockdown period? Not me, for sure, and I'm not proud of it. Keeping aside the factor of shopping for bare-necessities, it is sincerely urged for people to stay indoors to curb the COVID-19 pandemic. For those of us who are dealing with the work-from-home situation, we don't know how the day passes. But those who primarily deal with outdoor jobs, and can't find much to do at home, here are all the tips that you need to pass your day by being productive, taking inspirations from our favourite celebrities, of course.
One scroll through her Instagram account and you'll know that the actress has gone on a fun picture-posting spree titled Seasons - Productivity in the time of COVID-19. Deepika is enjoying her time off by giving us a peek of her rather mundane life, which we still drool over with star-gazed eyes. She's decluttering her wardrobe, showing off her enviable skincare steps, drinking juice whilst video-calling her loved ones, working out to maintain that fit bod (along with indulging in Nutella with Ranveer) and going overboard with label-makers. All of that makes us wonder, where does all our time go? On our cosy beds, that's where.
Alia Bhatt is rather tight-lipped about her quarantine routine, but from what we see, we know why she has been so busy. She's spending her time with her furry friends - well, her stunning cat, and Ranbir's dogs. From the looks of it, she's also spending her time learning something new. We love!
Katrina seems to be having a very fruitful quarantine period. Starting from her hardcore terrace workout sessions with trainer Yasmin Karachiwala, guitar-learning sessions, house cleaning to dishes, we can see that this is productivity at it's best. She is having her fun moments too, by posting a jubilant picture of Alpacas and having a video-call session with Arjun Kapoor and Varun Dhawan. Kay by Katrina, a makeup brand founded by her, have posted several tips to keep yourself active, which also features the trainer giving at-home workout tips. After all, ItsKayToSociallyDistance.
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are giving us major #couplegoals by engaging in fun activities together. Take a moment to notice just how adorable they look with their labrador. Apart from their goofy selfies together, the couple had us going 'aww' when Anushka was seen trimming Virat's hair. Now that's a self-sufficient, power-couple right there.
Priyanka seems to be in an all-mushy mood cosying up with Nick Jonas and Gino, her German Shepherd. With all the extra time that we have, it's important to spend it with your loved ones. We wonder what else must Priyanka be doing to keep herself active.
Our reasons to stalk Sonam Kapoor's social media no. 1), her trending outfit pictures and 2) her super-adorable throwbacks with her family (plus her old photoshoots) and cuddly pictures with Anand Ahuja. She also shared a few unknown hygiene tips on her account. So head on to her Instagram (as if we need another excuse) and take notes.
Kareena Kapoor- Khan
It's a well-known fact that Kareena Kapoor-Khan has been pretty guarded about her royal Pataudi life, but ever since she joined Instagram recently, we see up close and personal her envy-worthy lifestyle. It's no surprise that the fitness-freak actress is working out from home, and also sharing cute Saif-Taimur moments like this one, where they are gardening. We are obsessing over the chubby baby Kareena, which she posted with a caption 'me..when someone tries to shake my hand these days. #stayhome #staysafe #socialdistancing' Clever!
Athiya Shetty is a MOOD! Most of us who can't seem to deal with the flooding "productivity" posts, this one's a true gem for us. All we are looking forward to now is to wrap ourselves like a burrito in the comfiest of a blanket and binge-watch Netflix with snacks. And also, the goal is to take numerous goofy pictures with our pets.
When you can make a wicked throwback post to one of your movie references, you're winning the humour game. Diana Penty cracked us up with her #flashbackfriday posts with her Cocktail movie reference and made us have an aww moment to her bath-time picture as a kid. Time to dig up those as we have a lot of them too.
Like many others, Kriti Sanon is also on a cleaning-spree. But this time, her adorable pooch, Phoebe, wanted some playtime. We would love ourselves a distraction this cute. She is also keeping up with the social media trends along with sartorial ones by giving it her personal touch by making Dark Chocolate Chia pudding instead of the trending banana bread and Dalgona coffee. Being a romantic at heart, she also shared her poetic side with poems and indulging in antakshari.
When in quarantine, play dress up, and chill in your living room. Ananya Panday proves that you still have to look red-carpet ready even if you end up chilling with your family. Speaking of family, indulge in fun activities together like baking the banana bread or some chocolate chip cookies.
On a serious note, many celebrities have contributed to the PM-CARES fund for combating the pandemic. We also, urge people to contribute in any way possible and not just financially. As a part of moral obligations from residing in social structure, stay indoors as much as possible and maintain hygiene. But most importantly, keep yourself active mentally and physically, just like these celebrities and have enjoy your days-in.
