The coronavirus situation has gotten a lot more serious than most people expected, and it
has become apparent that it is in all of our best interest to spend some time in self-isolation
to help put a stop to the spread of this nasty disease.
We’re pretty sure this is a dream come true for introverts who get goosebumps when
someone cancels some plans on them, and they can just chill between their four walls
without having to do any peopling. But for others who can’t stand the idea of having to spend
an hour alone or those who are simply addicted to being outdoors, self-isolation and
quarantine can feel like a straight up nightmare!
Luckily, staying at home doesn’t have to be boring and there is always some interesting stuff
we can do, not only to pass the time, but also to have some fun!
1. Do some exercise! Sure, the gyms are all closed right now, but that shouldn’t be stopping
you from breaking your daily sweat. If you feel like you just can’t motivate yourself to do
some sit-ups or yoga without a personal trainer, there’s like a gazillion fitness videos on
YouTube that you can work out to!
2. Cook for yourself and your family! The internet is an endless ocean of recipes and all the
cooking shows you can think of. Just pick your favorite cuisine, do a bit of googling, fire up
that stove, and use all this free time to become an expert cook!
3. Read a new book! With today’s way of life being so fast-paced, it often feels like the only
things we read are work documents and way-too-long comments on Facebook. So, use this
time off to put your phone down, kick your feet up, and dive into that paperback that has
been staring at you from the shelf for the past year. Heck, why not make it a trilogy?!
4. If you’re feeling crafty, make yourself some homemade soap! The number one
recommendation these days is to wash your hands, so if there is anything that has been
cleared from the supermarkets, it has to be soap! We’re sure that you’ve already stocked up
and won’t really need to make any of your own, but actually, it’s pretty fun! Just google a few
recipes and get to it!
5. Play some board games! Board games are an awesome way to spend some quality time
with your family and they are fun for people of all ages. So, break out that Monopoly board
and start buying out those properties and building those hotels! Or, if you want to play
something simpler, go head to head in a game of checkers. If you don’t have any board
games available at home, there is an almost endless list of social games you can play with
just a pen and paper!
