Like children strapped into a car seat at the beginning of a long distance drive, South Africans are feeling the restrictions and they're acting out. Just this weekend a nature reserve in KwaZulu-Natal had to be closed down because attendees flocked in their numbers, breaking the lockdown regulations.
So, what is a law-abiding citizen to do when faced with countless hours indoors?
For starters, you can take a look at these five tips that Sibu Mabena, founder of the Duma Collective, an 'entertainment consulting boutique', has for those working from home.
"The pandemic has done a lot to disrupt how corporate employees have grown used to working. One, in particular, is the issue of trying to navigate distance working, especially when you're used to shared office environments," Mabena said in a statement.
"We now have to find new ways to navigate the business world. We've had to learn new processes that are better suited to enabling the move from physical to virtual interactions with colleagues."
Young professionals need to remind themselves why they do what they do
When you're starting to feel overwhelmed, Mabena says it's best to remember why you've chosen the career path you're on.
"The ability to remember why the work is important is vital, for both mental and physical wellbeing. A big part of this is staying focused throughout the day and making sure your intake of the right vitamins is vital. One 250ml can of Red Bull provides B-group vitamins and 80mg of caffeine to keep you going through a day of work.
