self-quarantined and bored already?
with being encouraged to stay home with everything that has been going on in our world lately, it’s easy to spend hours upon hours on our phones and computers. but that can only be entertaining for so long.
today, i brainstormed a few ideas to get you through the boredom and hopefully keep you from going a little stir-crazy.
go for a drive. a perfect way to get out of the house, but still keep away from others. right now is the perfect time: traffic is light and gas is cheap! even bring the family with and make a fun adventure out if it with a classic game of i-spy.
make something. no better time than now to make something you’ve wanted to, whether that be a painting, a video, or a construction project. you’ve got this!
relax and pamper yourself. even get the kids included if you wanted to. do some face masks, give yourself a pedicure, take a bubble bath. treat yourself!
take an online course. learn something new that you’ve always wanted to or freshen up and improve your skills.
workout. a lot of gyms are closing, but don’t let that stop you from being active. go for a run or walk, inside or out, or try out a new online workout class. youtube is even a great resource for a lot of free online workout routines, or create your own!
cook. have that new recipe that you’ve been wanting to try? now’s the time! or scroll the internet and find something that looks yummy! even give baking a try!
read a book. i have countless books that i’ve had sitting on my shelf waiting to be read, but the time just hasn’t been there. pick up a good read, relax, and get lost in another world – that’s corona free!
need some more ideas that are’t so fun? use this gift of extra time at home to knock things off your to-do list that you’ve been putting off or haven’t had time for:
- deep clean the house
- clean out the fridge and reorganize the pantry
- do some yard work
- clean out old files on your computer
- rearrange the furniture in your house
- purge your closet and donate what you no longer wear
most importantly…relax, s l o w d o w n, and STAY HEALTHY!
