At-home tips from songbird Yanga Sobetwa and 'quarantunes' for the weekend
Self-proclaimed homebody Yanga Sobetwa has got all the answers while many of us struggle with staying indoors during the 21-day national lockdown.
The Idols SA winner says she enjoys her own space more than the average person. Below the 19-year-old songbird gives five tips on surviving the lockdown:
- If I’m not at school, I’m at home. If I’m not at a gig, I’m home. That’s it for me. I’m someone who loves my space and just being by myself. To entertain myself I watch a lot of YouTube videos.
- I connect with myself. I reflect a lot and it helps me to be intact with myself – especially my emotional and mental wellbeing. I also use the time to come up with a lot of new ideas.
- I make sure that my spiritual self is nourished as well. I read the Bible every day, read the word of the lord and pray every day. This is to solidify my spirit, so that when I go out I’m able to deal with certain situations in a wise manner.
- I eat a lot. I make sure that I’m well fed. My goal is to gain a few kilos. I have been going to the gym a lot, but I feel like I’ve been losing the weight instead of toning the way I want. For me it’s a good thing, while for others it’s not.
- I try to connect with friends and family. Not daily, but I try my best.
