Trailmix is a combination of trails, modules, superbadges and projects that aim to create a learning path. I usually make a trailmix for a month but due to this lockdown and 'Stay at home policy' I have created a trailmix in trailhead called 'Quarantine Trailmix' which includes random badges which I aim to complete before we get out of quarantine and back to work.

4. Join TopTrailblazers


Enroll your Trailhead profile to the super awesome TopTrailblazer dashboard built by Johan Karlsteen. See how you rank among other Top Trailblazers and flaunt your trailblazer badge and your precious salesforce certificates

Well, if you've had too much of Trailhead adventure with badges, superbadges and trailmixes then you can certainly 'Do Something Different'. You could do the dishes, laundry or any other chores around the house. Re-read an old favorite book which might be gathering dust on your bookshelf; get it out and read it all over again. This can keep you busy for hours and keep your brain engaged.

Quick Fact - My wife started reading books by the author Katrina Zeno to pass her time, and she finished reading 2 books in a week. In her attempt to kill boredom she is soon to be a Ranger in Trailhead though not from an IT background. She is my inspiration!


6. Learn Something New!

We should NEVER stop learning. You can learn anything if you're willing. There are multiple programs with tutorial videos that can keep you engaged and happy.

Get a Hobby!

Skill up your cooking talent during this quarantine time as most of the restaurants are closed or offer takeaway food. 

You can learn new skills with Udemy, PluralSight, Udacity, SkillShare and BitDegree. Learn a new language on Duolingo. Most of these apps provide free learning access to their platform during this quarantine period.

The next two points are very important.

Everyone has been away from the gym during this quarantine time to stay safe. You don't always need a treadmill to walk or weights to get fit. You can exercise at home by doing exercises like Yoga, push-ups, burpees, jumping jacks and many more.
