If there's something we're bound to learn thanks to the quarantine, it's going to be creativity in terms of finding entertainment. LP-life.cz 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.
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.
Do you miss sports? Have you been planning to run a marathon and now you're sorry it's been canceled or postponed this year? No reason to be despondent! You can take an example from the 32-year-old Frenchman who managed to run a marathon without setting a foot out of the door. He put in more than 42 kilometers on his seven-meter balcony.
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.
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.
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.
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?
Last but not least, we have a greeting from Portugal for you. If you're not a sports enthusiast, but rather a pub regular that misses their favorite restaurant with football and billiards, take an inspiration from this photo. We only hope that you like your vitamins, otherwise you might be lacking building material for this pool table...
