If there's something we're bound to learn thanks to the quarantine, it's going to be creativity in terms of finding entertainment. brings you a collection of the most imaginative inspiration of how people around the world entertain themselves in isolation. There's even a tip from Justin Bieber and his wife! We were most impressed by the marathon runner on the balcony, though.

Mnozí z nás se už jistě těší na svou oblíbenou hospodu.

In the first days of quarantine, you may have been thinking, "Awesome, I'm going to relax, delve into spring cleaning and do a Friends rewatch." But let's be honest with ourselves. This self isolation and restricted movement is getting too long. If your home is already spotless clean, TV bores you and you know all your books by heart, look for inspiration to those who haven't lost their optimism yet and keep coming up with new ways to entertain themselves at home.

Elisha Nochomovitz might have had a beautiful view of the mountains while running, but he grew tired of it soon. He had make thousands of rounds back and forth on his balcony. The man himself admitted that his greatest enemy was not the number of kilometers, but his own mental state.

"I had to convince my mind that regardless of the situation I was able to finish it,"

said the enthusiastic runner.

The mantra he repeated during for himself during the race so as not to lose motivation was: "Where there is a will there is a way." And this required a very strong will. Nochomovitz finished the marathon in 6 hours and 48 minutes.

The runner works as a restaurant manager, but due to quarantine he cannot perform his job. He told the media that planning the marathon was one way he could focus his attention on something positive again.

How about tennis?

Italians are another great source of inspiration. In addition to singing various arias on their balconies in the evening, two quarantined men came up with another idea to make their stay at home a little more diverse. Without breaking self isolation, they whipped out their tennis rackets and held a mini tournament. If you also happen to be a tennis enthusiast, you can try to "ping" a little with your next-door neighbor from balcony to balcony. You'll improve your skills and it's going to be a lot of fun. Just make sure you have some extra balls ready.

Even your kids will love this obstacle course in the living room

If you're tired of card games, chess and online quizzes, try playing a game at home that your children are sure to be excited about. You can take an example from the singer Justin Bibeber and his wife Hailey Baldwin. The model created a makeshift obstacle course for her husband in their Canadian residence. The whole trick is that you're not allowed to touch the floor while moving from point A to point B. In the video that the couple shared on their Instagram account, you can see Justin, who, having shared the instruction 'The floor is lava', shows off his parkour skills. He jumps from the couch on the chair, the bar stool, a skateboard or a roller. Would you dare to do the same?

We only hope that you like your vitamins, otherwise you might be lacking building material for this pool table...
