21 Activities To Do That Will Cure Your Quarantine Boredom


1. Get back to exercising and meditating!

Make sure you're eating well, staying hydrated, and are mentally healthy before you start a wellness journey! Remember that your wellness journey should be grounded in self-love! This is my favorite workout YouTuber! Calm is also a really great meditating app!

2. Deal with the things that you have been pushing off.

let it go GIF Giphy

We all have those things that we've been pushing away. Whether it be that junk drawer you've been ignoring, that grudge you have been holding onto, emotions you haven't exactly processed, etc. Maybe this is your sign that you deserve peace and to put it to rest? I bought this book and it was really nice to put some things to rest.

3. Clean out your closet!

Giphy

I Marie Kondo'd my closet and drawers...I had not felt that at peace in a while.

Does it spark joy? If not, donate it!

4. Donate things you do not want and not using anymore!

One's trash is another man's treasure or something like that! Buying second hand and shopping at thrift stores are more sustainable options for our earth anyways and often cheaper, a win-win!

5. Go to your local park!

Painting, going for a jog, having a picnic, reading, your options are endless. ugh the fresh air smacks.

Hello people! Duolingo is literally FREE! Whether you want to look more applicable on a job resume or planning a vacation in the future, you cannot go wrong with learning a new language!

8. Read something different.

Giphy

Switch up the genre of literature you usually read up! Try a hard read! Try a young adult fiction! That is the beauty in reading, it is so multi-faceted.

9. Have a self-care day!

Giphy

Draw a bath, layer on some face masks, read a book, eat that pizza, bake those brownies...anyway, I am sure calories don't count in the name of self-care.

10. Try a Bob Ross painting tutorial!

Whether you make a beautiful painting or a painting with tons of happy accidents, you still had the pleasure of hearing Bob Ross' calm talking, there's really not much to lose here.

11. Throw a concert in your house.

The last time I mailed a letter was a year ago! Write a letter just because and I can assure you that the recipient will feel more love compared to a text message!

15. Call your loved ones/family more often!

In the scary times that we are currently living in, it's nice to find solace in knowing that all of your loved ones are doing well. Even a five-minute conversation can make a big impact in your day and attitude!

16. Support local stores around you (safely)!

Local stores everywhere are struggling right now! Help them by shopping there if you have means to!

A new look to the environment we are in so frequently right now can be quite refreshing! We may not be able to control much of what's going on around us, its nice to do the things we can/.

19. Start journaling.

I personally love journaling my feelings but I cannot seem to get consistent with it! What I am consistent with is my planner, I love organizing my life goals, events, and things that are due! It is so rewarding to know that my tasks are neat and ready to help me kick my crazy schedule in the butt!

20. Start a garden!

Planting gardens are amazing for the environment! Plants help absorb carbon dioxide, reduce air pollution, and so much more! They're also gorgeous to look at as well, nice little plus!

21. Sleep!

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.

124

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

The Smile Project is a nonprofit organization devoted to spreading happiness, founded by Elizabeth Buechele. It all started on a random day in the fall of her senior year.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
