As the world reacts to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are urged to stay in their homes and practice social distancing for the effort to slow down the coronavirus. Due to this, many people have found to have a lot of time on their hands. This leads to a lot of struggle to figure out how they could occupy their time with their children, partner, or even themselves. If you are looking to find fun activities at home, here are some suggestions.
Try to Learn New Recipes
Quarantine is the perfect time to research some fun recipes if you enjoy cooking. It’s always interesting to go out of your comfort zone by putting your cooking skills into good use! From making breakfast, lunch, and dinner to baking desserts really helps occupy the mind in a good way!
A lot of people have found ways to stay in contact with their friends and loved ones. Using video platforms such as Zoom, Google Hangouts, or Facetime is a great way to stay connected. Although you can’t celebrate holidays or birthdays in person during these tough times, these digital platforms are the second best thing!
If you are a movie person like myself, this is the perfect time to catch up on the movies that you were always dying to see, but never had the chance to do in the first place. By creating a comfortable setting in your bedroom or living room, you can even go beyond to create the perfect DIY movie theater. You could even write down a movie list to keep track of all the movies that you’ve watched during this quarantine.
Take a Drive
A lot of people have been experiencing “cabin fever”, which is when you are confined in your house for long periods of time so you experience a lot of irritability and boredom. A safe and effective way to get out of the house is to take a drive around your town. Driving or even taking a walk around your neighborhood is the perfect way to reduce restlessness and irritability.
