"Quaranthings" to do in the time of ECQ

The saying “ so much to do, so little time” was once a cliché we could all relate to. But these days, such seems to be inapplicable, for most of us are at home due to the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ). With more time on our hands now, we ask, what more can we do to stay productive?  If there’s anything we are learning from our current reality during this time, it is that we can now do what we’ve always wanted to accomplish in the comforts of our home—be it baking, cooking, gardening, and other hobbies we had no time to learn before.

We are also advised to stay indoors, wear lightweight and light-colored clothing, and the most important, keep hydrated. Tips on How To Keep Hydrated:  1. Drinking-Water - This is the most basic and easiest way to hydration. It is recommended that we drink 6-8 glasses of water a day.  It is ideal to opt for purified instead of distilled water since the purified water still contains minerals that are  essential in rehydration  while distilled water has both the  contaminants and minerals removed.  It also helps if we keep our water cold since this is more  palatable which can
