We are living in some strange times right now with the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Having to self-quarantine isn’t what we thought we would be doing during this spring season, but it’s key to resolving the issue. If you’re like me, you’re probably trying to figure out what to do with yourself for the next 6 weeks, if not longer!
Here are some great activities to do while following the recommended act of social distancing. These are fun for all ages!
Get outside! Just because we have to social distance, doesn’t mean we can’t get out and enjoy the outdoors. Go for a walk around your neighborhood, go for a local hike, garden in your yard, anything to get you outdoors and enjoying the fresh air.
Do an art project! Pinterest is full of great craft and art ideas. Start searching and pick one that sounds fun. It can be something that takes a little bit of time to complete, you have the time!
Complete that project! Do you have a house project that has been sitting on your To-Do list for a while? Now is the perfect time to get that done!
Play a game! Any game you like, cards, dominos or a board game is a fun activity for all.
Stream! Catch up on that show you started a while back. Or better yet, start a new series you’ve always wanted to watch. Don’t currently use a streaming system? Most of them offer a free trial period between 1 week and a full month. Now is the perfect time to try it out!
Movie night! Or day, you pick. Pop some popcorn, make yourself a drink and snuggle up with your favorite blanket.
Puzzle! Dust off that old puzzle you haven’t done in a while, make some tea and puzzle.
Spoil yourself! Light some candles, pour yourself a drink and soak in a hot bath. Relax. When was the last time you’ve done that?
At home spa day! Put on a face mask, give yourself a pedicure and manicure. Honey and cinnamon are a great, natural exfoliant for your skin. Mix 1 teaspoon of each together, microwave it for 30 seconds (make sure it’s not too hot for your skin), rub it on your face and let it sit for 10 min. Rinse and feel how smooth your face feels after!
Spring clean! Now is the perfect time to spring clean! Open the blinds and curtains, let that natural light in, turn on your favorite tunes and get to purging and cleaning!
Organize! You know that closet you hate to open because something falls out every time? Or how about that drawer you can’t ever find anything in? Time to clean and organize it. It’ll feel so good when it’s all done!
Social distancing isn’t easy, but it doesn’t have to be boring. I hope you found some of these ideas to be beneficial to your next several weeks at home. Stay safe and don’t forget to take a deep breath whenever you’re starting to feel overwhelmed or anxious in any way.
