Advance your studies
Due to the closure of the universities, it is currently not so easy to advance your own studies. Right now, however, you have the opportunity to catch up on learning deficits and bring order to the chaos that may exist. Don’t postpone everything until tomorrow, but sit down and bring all your documents into shape, learn vocabulary or deepen the last chapters of study material. Do you need help with this? No problem! In our blog post “Little Helpers – The Best Student Apps” we give you valuable tips for learning apps. We wish you a lot of success!
Are reading and listening to music too mainstream for you? How about meditating and doing yoga? Yoga describes both the state of clear mind and strong body and the way to this state. Countless tutorials can be found online and on social media that you can start even without any prior knowledge. So why not use the current situation and the available time for this?
Still haven’t found the right place to relax? Then let’s raise heavier guns: Snuggle up in your bed and sleep in, so you can relax too!
Have you always wanted to learn very specific things, but have never had the time? Well now you probably have it! Sure, you can’t just go out and register at the nearest community college, but that’s not an obstacle these days. There are numerous online platforms where you can buy online seminars. Some are even made available for free. Start with small projects: learn to knit, crochet, fold origami, play chess or sew on buttons. YouTube is very suitable for such projects. You can watch the videos again and again, try things out, imitate and learn. If you have something bigger in mind, we will of course be happy to help you out with ideas:
- Learn a new language or deepen your knowledge: A very popular way to learn languages is the Babbel app.
- Improve your cooking skills: Numerous providers offer their cooking courses online
- Discofox, Cha Cha Cha and Slow Waltz? How about a dance? Many dance schools also offer courses online that you can practice on your own. The advantage is: Nobody is watching you, which is probably even better with some dream dancers at the beginning.
- Painting with a lot of joy and ease – at least that is what some online providers of painting courses promise. Just try it out; now you have the time!
Shop, shop, shop
And if nothing works, shopping helps – but online of course! Just because you’re not allowed out at the moment doesn’t mean you can’t keep an eye out for the upcoming summer fashion. We only have one important request: In order to help local companies even in times of crisis, we ask you to buy regionally in particular. Many Austrian companies have adjusted to the current situation and are now offering their goods in online shops.
Create order: physically and virtually
Now is the perfect time to finally restore order at home. Tidy up your room or apartment, redesign a little and reorganize your wardrobe. But not only your room should be spruced up: Make backup copies of your cell phone and your computer or finally take care of your numerous data memories again. The motto is: clear out, dispose of garbage data, sort photos and clean up the e-mail inbox.
Be a little child again
How about a little trip to your own childhood? You could search online for your old favorite children’s series and, for example, watch the “Show with the Mouse”. A few small handicrafts could also keep boredom at bay. Or you can really work hard and make your own modeling clay. All you need is the following ingredients:
400 grams of flour, 200 grams of salt, 2 tablespoons of citric acid, 500 milliliters of boiling water, 3 tablespoons of cooking oil, liquid food coloring.
Now mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl, then knead everything with your hands to form a smooth dough and you’re done! Have fun with it.
Create a bucket list
There will also be a time after the curfew and after the Corona crisis. Create a bucket list for it! You wonder what that is exactly? A bucket list is a listing of all those things that you absolutely want to do, see and experience before you die. Think about your dreams and wishes and put them on paper. There are hardly any rules for making this list. It is only important that you remain realistic. Here we have summarized some ideas and suggestions for you:
- Charitable purposes
- Personal future planning as in the classic form of building a house, getting married or having children
- Professional goals
- Learn new languages
- Sporting goals such as learning to ski, parachuting, water skiing or running a marathon
- Animal encounters like swimming with dolphins or petting a giraffe
- Learn an instrument
- Fulfilling private wishes, for example kissing in the rain or walking barefoot on the beach
- New body jewelry: getting a tattoo or piercing
We hope that we were able to provide you with some suggestions and ideas with which you can spend the time happily, creatively and meaningfully.
