Below are different ways which we can productively spend the excess time in lockdown


It could be books, novels, magazines, blogs or digital contents like video tutorials. One of the best and productive way you can pass time is reading. Read books that you actually enjoy. When you read books that you actually want to read, you’ll find it more difficult to put it down.
