As we all spend more time at home, we wanted to share ten activities that you can do individually or with others (socially distanced of course).
1. Watch TV and Movies
Do you have a movie that you have been wanting to watch or binge watching a TV show right now? This is a great time to catch up and try out new movies and shows.
2. Clean and Redecorate
It’s always a great feeling when you walk into a clean house. There is no better time than now to go through your house and get rid of the things you don’t need.
Once your house is clean and decluttered, you can start thinking about new ways to redecorate. You can paint your walls, find new bedding or perhaps get a new picture for your wall. The options are endless.
3. Read Books
What is your favorite genre of book to read? Reading is not only good for the mind, but it is a great escape. Take the time to order a new book or read a book you already own.
4. Start a Garden
It’s time to get resourceful, and by “resourceful” we mean start a garden. Not only will you be home more to be able to tend to your garden, but also with time, you may not even need to go to the store for produce. You can be self-sufficient with your herbs and home grown produce!
5. Learn a New Skill
Is there something in particular you’ve been wanting to learn? If you haven’t done so already, it is a great time to go online to learn a new language, learn how to play an instrument or learn something else that you want to get better at.
As we sit at home more often, it becomes even more important to get exercise. Whether it’s going for a run or doing an in-home workout video, make sure to get in at least thirty minutes of it every day.
7. Play Board Games
What is your favorite board game to play? Is it Monopoly or perhaps Settlers of Catan? Take the time to challenge your friends and family to one of your favorite games. Some of these board games are offered virtually. Check the App store or Google Play to see if it is available.
8. Do a Puzzle
Stimulate your mind by putting your problem solving skills to the test. Complete a 500 or 1000 piece puzzle. It takes more time than you may think.
9. Visit a Virtual Museum
Although traveling is not an option at the moment, many museums across the world are offering virtual museum tours that you can go to without ever having to leave your house.
10. Zoom or FaceTime Your Friends and Family
When was the last time you caught up with your friends and family? Even if they live across the country, they most likely miss you and would love to chat. Take the time to check up on them and see if they are available.
