What are the advantages of #StayingAtHome ?
Τhese days, due to the rapid spread of Coronavirus across the world, the Greek government has decided to “force” every Greek civilian into home confinement in order to tackle the spread of this extremely dangerous virus. This measure has a number of advantages. Firstly, during our time in home, we get rest and relax. In addition, by staying at home we see our loved ones and spend lots of quality time with our family, something we cannot do in our “regular” daily routine. Finally, this measure is useful, as via technology, we do online classes and keep in touch with our school in a very modern and with having a flexible program for those classes, too,
To sum up, the #StayingAtHome measure due to CO-VID 19, has numerous benefits, including: getting rest, spending time with relatives, combined with taking online classes, in order not to lose our touch with school.

There are a lot of benefits of staying home these difficult days. There are some ideas:
Firstly, you don’t have to worry about impressing anyone, or
plastering a fake smile on your face. When you are at home, you can be 100%
yourself without having to worry about what people think. You can wear what you
want, eat what you want, do what you want and act how you want.
you can play all of
those games/video games, aim at those hobbies, and read all of those books you
never get to. All of those things you bought but never get to read,
watch, or play magically get used when you stay home. Instead of buying yet more stuff or paying for new
experiences, this is the right time to explore them.
Another idea, if you get really bored, you can work on your skills. Learn some new software, practice an instrument or learn a new language. You can also work on crafts, or practice something artistic like painting or writing.
Finally, you can catch up on chores. Spending time at home gives you a chance to catch up on all of the uncared for chores, and organization you keep putting off. Taking care of your home and belongings makes you pass your time and clean your home, too!

Nowadays we have to stay in our home all day because of this powerful virus. This is a very difficult situation and of course not enjoyable, but we can find some beneficial ways to spend our free time at home.
To begin with, we can spend more time with our family. For instance, we can play many family games and do some other activities like cooking or solving a puzzle. As a result we can spend our time creatively.
Furthermore, we can take advantage of our free time and we do things that we postponed. For example we can organize our room or we can read a book that we had started but we didn’t have enough time to complete it. Consequently, we are more responsible and organized.
Another helpful idea is to start a new hobby or a new creative activity, like watch a movie and start a new series.
To conclude, I think that with these benefits we can stay home spending our time happily and creative!

Stay home COVID-19
It is well known that our country is in danger, and we are not the only ones but also many other countries live the same situation and have more difficult times with corona virus. This virus threatens all the human lives and it is an invisible enemy. But, we can help the situation and see the bright side of staying home
First of all, if we stay at home we will stop spreading the virus and we will protect the people who have health problems. We must not think only ourselves and how we will have a good time. We must think the older people, who have weak immune system and it is impossible to fight the virus. Also, there are people who have many other diseases and have weak immune system, too. So, all of us must protect ourselves and the people around us. In Greece, we do not have many hospitals and also, not a good national health system. As a result, if lot of people get sick the hospitals and generally the whole health system will not be able to save all of us and many people will die. So, it is very important all the people to understand how serious it is to stay at home and find other solutions to have good time than to go out and spread the virus.
However, we must see the bright side of the situation and not to be pessimists. If we stay at home, we can find other activities to pass our time. We can read our homework and to do revisions for the things we do not know so well and we muststudy them again. As a result, we will learn some things better and we will improve ourselves. Moreover, it is a good chance to spend time with our family and the people we love, we can do different activities˙ for example watch movies and play board games. Furthermore, we can rethink some difficult decisions for our future and the self-care is very important, too. In the end, we can exercise and cook healthier meals because now we have the time that we did not have earlier.
In conclusion, I believe that all the people can fight this difficult situation and these solutions can help us to pass creatively our time with our people and do some beneficial things for us.
