Whether you are staying in your pajamas all day long or keeping up your usual routine, I am sure you have found yourself with a lot more free time on your hands lately.
1. Read a book
I don't know about you, but this time inside makes me want to sit in bed all day and check some books off of my reading list.
2. Watch a tv series/movies
Use this time to watch a new series that you've been too busy to start or you can rewatch one you haven't seen in awhile.
3. Learn a new hobby
You can learn how to cook, paint, sew, play an instrument, speak a new language, etc.... The possibilities are endless.
4. Start a fitness plan
There are so many gyms doing live streams on instagram, hop onto one of those and it's free!! No excuses now!
5. Build a puzzle
This is an activity that is time consuming and entertaining, so you won't be bored in the house anymore.
6. Do some gardening
Go plant some fruits and veggies, then in a few months you won't have to risk going to the store for tomatoes and peppers! Plant some flowers too, everyone is in need of a pick-me-up at this point.
7. Declutter the house
Go through your kitchen and throw out expired food that is just hanging out in the back of the cabinet. Sort out the clothes that you want to keep for the summer or make a bag to donate once this is over.
8. Write a letter to someone
Send a letter to an old friend that you miss, send them an encouraging message and how they are doing during quarantine!
9. Attempt to make your favorite coffee order
I started doing this and I have finally perfected it, now even after we are out of quarantine I won't be spending $5 everyday on coffee.
10. Create a playlist
Name it 'Coronavirus' and fill your playlist with songs that will make your days better! Then in 10 years when you listen to it again, you'll remember how it made you feel during quarantine.
Take a bubble bath, put on a skincare facemask, and turn on some relaxing music.
12. Try to make your favorite meal from your favorite restaurant
Salad, entree, and desert. The whole shabang.
13. Make a vision board
Take time to put all your dreams and goals on paper, then hang it up as a reminder every day to thrive.
14. Go outside
We might be quarantined, but it is an essential to be getting time for fresh air every day. Remember to stay 6 feet away from everyone, but go for a run, walk, play games with your family. Anything is better than going crazy couped up in a dark bedroom all day.
15. Read your Bible
I think now more than ever it is necessary to read God's words and let them comfort us in this time filled with trials and grief.
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10
