20 Activities To Cure Your Quarantine Boredom

Quarantine has got us all bored out of our minds. We've all been binging Netflix and stuffing ourselves with our favorite snacks, but these activities are sure to spice up your quarantine life.

1. Have a (virtual) movie night. 

Movie nights are always fun. Turn down the lights and gather whoever you quarantined with or facetime your friends. Bring our your favorite snacks and have a good time.

2. Do some deep cleaning.

There's probably something that needs to cleaned, a closet or your entire room. Whatever it is, now is a great time to tidy up your space.

3. Have a Zoom party with your friends. 

Just because we're practicing social distancing, does not mean that we have to stop socializing. Stay close with your family and friends.

4. Take up a new hobby that you didn't have time for before. 

Now is the perfect time to start a new hobby that you have always wanted to, but have never had the time for. I've been really enjoying writing and cross-stitching.

5. Cook or bake, or learn how to.

Cooking, especially with your mom, can be super fun and a nice way to pick up a new skill.

6. Read all the books on your TBR list. 

As a book lover, I finally have the time to read all the books I've been wanting to.

7. Write a novel.

For those of you who been wanting to start that novel, now's the perfect chance.

8. Make a quarantine documentary (preferably in The Office style).

Filming your family can be super funny and entertaining.

9. Take a Masterclass or any other class online in something you find interesting.

Now's the best time to learn about something that you are actually interested in.

10. Have a photoshoot.

Getting dressed and having a photoshoot is a great way to break up your quarantine boredom and look cute!

11. Have a spa day.

We're all in a need of a little TLC. Do a face mask, take a bath, do your nails and just relax.

12. Start a journal.

Journaling is a great way of relaxing and reflecting on your day. It is a great form of self-care and can be fun to look back on later.

13. Make an amazing quarantine playlist. 

I love making playlists for different things and building them around a certain mood. Now's the best time to discover some new music.

14. Stay fit. 

Exercising from home is a great way to stay active despite not being able to go to the gym. There are a bunch of Youtube videos for at-home workouts that do not require any equipment.

15. Learn a TikTok dance, or several.

TikTok is super addictive and fun. You can easily spend hours scrolling on the app.

16. Play some board games with whoever you're quarantined with. 

I used to love board games as a child. Board games are a great way to spend time in quarantine, but they can get very competitive.

17. Take a virtual tour of a museum. 

Many museums are offering virtual tours and online exhibits that are very interesting and can be a fun way to expand your knowledge,

18. Do something artsy. 

Whether it be painting or drawing, now is the perfect time to let that inspiration flow.

19. Write a letter to someone or to your future/past self.

Letter-writing is an art that we should definitely bring back and now is the perfect time.

20. Take care of your mental health. 

Taking care of your mental health is especially important during this challenging time. Remember to stay safe and to take care of yourself.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
