Apart from movie, there are many things to do at home like repairing broken electricity circuits, cleaning home, garden and courtyard, and many more which will surely keep you occupied and never let you think negative.
Being positive is also important these days. Do not get worried about petty things and should try to look at the cheerful side of scenario. You do not need to exhaust yourself with things that are unchangeable. Be realistic and positive and move forward with hope that good time will come soon.
