It's hard to believe that it's been six months since we've been able to dine at a restaurant, see a movie, or stand one foot away from a stranger. We've had to adapt to new ways of living, working, and going to school. But despite what the media says, we've all done a phenomenal job at adapting and coming up with creative ways to entertain ourselves.

There are so many options for entertainment while we quarantine at home. Today we're highlighting the best ways Leksi makes living through this pandemic a little easier.

Step away from the screen

Hours of screentime is the norm these days, whether you're in kindergarten or a working professional. And no matter how much we fight it, screen fatigue is inevitable. The bright side is work and learning can still happen away from the screen. Instead of reading papers and articles on the computer, you can listen to them. You can study or catch-up on readings without having to sit and stare at a screen for hours.

Here are more tips on how to boost your productivity when working (or schooling) from home.

Speaking of getting away from the screen, getting a dose of nature or moving your body is especially important. We're all couped up at home for most of the day, perhaps not seeing a ray of sunlight. We often think that we're getting more done by continuing to work without a break, but without even knowing it, we're running low on focus and attention. Give yourself a break by taking a walk and listening to an article or book you've placed on the back burner. When you get back to it, you'll feel refreshed and energized, whether to get a bit more work done or spend time with your favorite people.

Plan ahead

Some days we have the motivation, and some days we don't. On days when motivation is high, plan your tasks and activities for the upcoming days. Creating audio versions of your articles and papers in advance makes it a ton easier to get your 'reading' done, even on the days you want to stay snuggled in bed. Listening is even better during the 'lazy' days because you can listen, learn, and relax, without the guilt.

Be entertained

Movies and podcasts are fantastic. But sometimes we crave a different form of entertainment. If you have reading materials you've wanted to catch up on, Leksi gives you a convenient way to get it done while doing other things you enjoy, like walking the dog or doing yoga. The documents you can convert to audio are limitless. Try it with a PowerPoint presentation or any PDF document.

The list of technological advancements to help us learn and grow gets longer every day. Some people learn best by reading, some by listening, and some by doing both. Leksi is an ideal tool for those who learn best by listening or simultaneously listening and reading.
