With the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, the nation and world seem to be shutting down. Schools are closing, events are being cancelled, people are working from home, and we are being called to practice "social distancing." This is a scary and unpredictable time, but all we can do is stay positive, follow procedures, and do our best to encourage and help others. While I tend to like time alone, social isolation can be a difficult thing to experience. If you are bored, feeling anxious, lacking motivation, or just looking for something fun to do, look no further. Here is my personal list of simple and creative activities:


1. Read a New Book

2. Paint or Draw

3. Make a Collage or Vision Board

4. Bake

5. Spend Time in Prayer or Meditation

6. Journal or Write Creatively

7. Play a Board Game

8. Make a Bird Feeder

9. Do a DIY Project

10. Walk or Run in the Neighborhood

11. Play Sports Outside

12. Practice Yoga

17. Write a Song

18. Listen to Your Favorite Music

19. Have Your Own Dance Party

20. FaceTime or Call Friends

21. Jump Ahead on Assignments

22. Make a Bucket List

23. Make a Gratitude List

24. Have a Photoshoot

25. Watch a New Movie

26. Learn a New Skill or Language

27. Try a New Hairstyle

28. Do a Puzzle or Word Search

29. Scrapbook

30. Cook a New Recipe
