My Quarantine Routine

My Quarantine Routine

Tomorrow is gonna be exactly 3 months we're in this quarantine period due to the Coronavirus and starting the 3rd week of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO). Since the CMCO was implemented, I started to work at the office again but we're doing rotation and my turn to go to the office is on Monday and Thursday every week. The office hour also was shortened to 9.00am - 2.00pm only. I found that the new normal we have to live in made major changes in my daily routine and I wanna share it with you guys.

Since it's the Ramadhan, and I'm living with my family, I wake up as early as 4.30am to prepare for Suhur. If it's my turn to go to the office, I will be straight preparing to go to work after Subuh since it's gonna be 1 hour and 30 minutes journey to the office. I'll make sure I arrive at the office by 9.00am and would check out from the office exactly at 2.00pm. I usually would arrive home around 3.30pm to 4.00pm and I will take a nap as I'd be exhausted from the long drive.

If I won't be working that day, I would sleep again after Subuh, usually, it's 1 hour after I perform my prayer. During that hour, I would watch youtube or shows or scrolling my social media to stay awake. I would wake up again at around 10.00am. If I wake up any later, I will be so lazy to be productive for the day and I will be sleeping the whole day, which is not good. So I make sure I wake up the latest by 10.00am. 

After refreshing myself, I would first clean the house, especially the kitchen, then starting to do my works. My works included my study assignments which are due very soon and my office works that I bring home. As a typical lazy girl as I am, I didn't spend much time doing my works no matter how slow I'm going to finish them all. I always lose when battling with procrastination (Lya 0 - 1 procrastination).

By 3.00pm, I would take a nap, or rather it's not really a nap, but it's a very long and deep sleep. Not gonna disclose at what time I would be waking up, it's just embarrassing myself, but by 6.00pm I would be in the kitchen to help my mom prepare Iftar for the family. The one thing I feel blessed during this quarantine is my family pray Isyak and Tarawih together. It's the 24th of Ramadhan and we never missed a night to pray together, Alhamdulillah.

Finally, night time is my favourite of the day. If I'm still in the mood, I will continue doing my works, but if I'm not, which usually that's the case, I would be watching Kdrama or youtube videos or reading or sketching, basically doing everything I love, for example, tonight I'm writing this post. If I will be working the next day, I make sure to be sleeping by 10.00pm but if it's off-day tomorrow, this doing hobby of mine could go up till the time for Suhur.

I hardly go out if there's nothing important for me to so this is basically my quarantine routine. Actually, I feel like I'm more productive during this quarantine, maybe because I have more free time in my hand. But no matter how much I love having more free time, I do miss the normal days a lot, especially to hang out with friends and to go travelling.

What's your quarantine routine? 

Till then,
Lya.

    1. Yeah. It's surprising to me that I can be productive actually. But as long as we set our mind to, we can do anything.

  5. I'm an absolute homebody but I miss going out especially to the movies and window shopping! I guess this year really changed our everyday routine to the core. I usually go to work at 9-6 (minus the OT) but now 8-5 and that's it.No OT allowed haha. For the rest of the hours, I just chill at home with my family and do bunch of activities together such as coloring, lots of karaoke in between and of course buat kuih for raya :D

    1. It's better to not sleep after Subuh at all, actually so good for you! I on the other hand couldn't help but sleep after Subuh is a must for me haha.

  11. That's quite neat that you actually have a routine during this MCO. I, on the other hand have no routine at all. I do whatever what I want at whatever time that I feel convenient. lol
