The action #stayathome is the most radical and rational approach for everyone in the current situation. Yet, staying at home is not necessarily connected with boredom and increasing reluctance for all activities. We are safe in our homes. But this does not mean that we have to renounce creativity and fruitful work, also in the scientific areas.
Below we present a list of things which may be done while sitting on a couch with a nice cup of tea.
1) For those who crave culture, online exhibitions, and shows which you can enjoy with your family, e.g. The Metropolitan Opera: https://www.metopera.org/ or The British Museum: https://britishmuseum.withgoogle.com/.
2) Scientific development, especially reading and analyzing research papers, for which we usually have much less time, is obviously also of great importance. Interesting information can be found here: https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/journals-open-access-to-coronavirus-resources–67105.
3) If you are interested in “live” lectures, there is a base of webinars that we also share on our website: https://ecorrector.com/webinars/. We can improve statistical planning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbHeCL_8UhA. It’s also a great opportunity to learn how to professionally prepare interesting charts and tables which can be used during lectures and presentations: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NUjHBNWe9M. And if you would like to learn something interesting about academic writing and publishing as well as enhance your papers, it is worth taking a look at these platforms: https://ecorrector.com/platforms-online-courses/.
4) Writing scientific papers is an activity which is usually performed at home but because we now have more time, we can take it more seriously. Especially now, when scientists become gurus followed by the entire world. We have prepared guidebooks for all researchers craving additional specialist knowledge. It is worth taking a look at them before starting the writing process. https://ecorrector.com/ecorrectorguides/.
5) For the evening, we suggest something that can be watched in streaming without stepping outside: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/16/business/media/coronavirus-universal-home-movies.html, or a base of audiobooks which can be found on many web pages: https://bookriot.com/2016/09/15/11-websites-find-free-audiobooks-online/.
6) In order to take care of mental health and peace of mind, it is good to participate in yoga workshops on-line, e.g. Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJjeIEZzUR8 or just relax and listen to stories other than those about coronavirus. In this unusual time, it is worth exploring those resources which on an everyday basis are less available or not available at all.
We encourage you to take a look!
