How TikTok is helping its users beat the lockdown blues

Here are a few things you can do to beat the quarantine blues.
  • Launched in partnership with United Nations Development Programme, the #GharBaithoIndia campaign invites users to share ideas on how to stay safe and beat the lockdown blues.
  • To kick off the campaign, creators on TikTok are dishing out original music renditions about their experience on self-isolation.

The year 2020 has brought upon us one of the most challenging situations of our time. At a time like this, social distancing has become the prudent thing to do to stop the spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus. But it requires us to do something we aren’t accustomed to - avoiding physical contact with people outside our home. Pretty unnerving, right? – especially in the prevailing atmosphere of fear and uncertainty.

Being confined to our homes for weeks, it’s natural to feel the occasional pang of desolation or boredom. However, there’s no denying that it’s also a wonderful opportunity for us to focus on activities we would not have given importance to otherwise such as spending time with family, exploring hobbies, interests, new means of recreation and entertainment and focussing on physical and mental health, as the pandemic unfolds, subsides, and dies out.

But don’t let that get you down, says TikTok.

The #GharBaithoIndia hashtag on TikTok is a good place to start looking for some ideas on the things you can do to make your time at home enjoyable and safe. There are a range of celebrities and creators who have come forward to share things we can do, while staying inside and stopping the spread. Here is what you can look out for:

  • Original Soundtrack: To kick off the campaign, creators on TikTok are dishing out original music renditions about their experience on self isolation. TikTok users can use these track to make their own versions of videos on soundtracks created by Abby Viral, Tony Kakkar, Aariz Saiyed, Kartik Aaryan, and Viruss.
  • Live on #TikTok: We are teaming up with creators, celebrities, musicians, education institutes and other partners to bring LIVE content to you. So stay tuned!
