Diwali celebrations are just around the corner. It’s time for warm lights, cosy nights and a blast of colour. But, can we truly celebrate when work has taken over our apartments in Chennai?
While working from home, our days are spent chasing deadlines; glued to our laptops for hours. Diwali is an excellent excuse to step away for a little bit and focus on other important things in life.
Figure out what you like
Since the boundaries between work and personal life have blurred, we’ve forgotten about our passions. So spend this holiday exploring new activities and hobbies to figure out what puts a smile on your face.
Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Don the master chef hat
What is a festival without a scrumptious feast? Diwali celebrations call for all things sweet and savoury. Take advantage of the spacious kitchens in Appaswamy apartments to flex your creativity and cook up a storm. Whether you make comfort food or try out new recipes, you’re sure to make your heart as well as your taste buds very happy.
Every house wears a uniquely festive look during Diwali. From painting diyas to match your decor to designing paper lanterns, try your hand at DIY to enhance your aesthetic. In our apartments in Chennai, you can also kindle a bout of friendly competition within the community.
Do a digital detox
In 2020, life has gone completely online. But it is good to disconnect from the virtual world de-stress in the company of friends and family. The clubhouse at all Appaswamy apartments in Chennai are an excellent place to chill.
