I suppose a lot of you readers believe being in quarantine is extremely boring and I understand this as well. So in this is blog post, I am going to help you find stuff to do at home. With a list that you can make for yourself.
Clean your bedroom:
Cleaning your bedroom can really help to improve your mood. It can really effect one’s mood if they are living in a messy and disorganized environment.
Watch a movie:
Watching a movie; is a great way to do something entertaining while you are stuck at home.
One of my favourites, journaling is amazing for getting your thoughts out on paper etc. There are a lot of different ways that a journal can be utilized.
Do a jigsaw puzzle:
This is also one of my favourite things to do and it’s a great way to stimulate your brain.
Read a book:
Reading a book is definitely a way that you can relax and enjoy while learning new things!
Declutter your phone:
Decluttering your phone is great! I have mentioned in previous blog posts that decluttering can help your mood etc.
Being in quarantine can obviously be very lonely. You should call someone or even maybe call someone you have not spoken to for awhile. People do appreciate being checked up on.
Play video games:
Video games are excellent to pass some time. Surprisingly video games are also proven to be good for your brain!
Have a treat:
I know I love treats! In my opinion; who doesn’t? Treats can help you by boosting your natural dopamine levels. I myself have to be careful to not eat too many as I do have a bad sweet tooth.
Watch a TV show:
Watching TV shows is another great way to pass time. If you have a PVR; you could always record some shows. Or you could try Netflix or other streaming platforms.
Play with your animals:
Playing with your animals is something fun you can do. Studies have shown that spending time with a pet can lower your blood pressure and heart rate.
Clean your garage:
Cleaning your garage might be a cool thing to do. I know some people their garage’s can be very dirty and neglected. This may seem like a major undertaking but it is one you should put on your list.
Cook your favourite meal:
I know some people really like cooking and baking. So take the time out of your busy day and cook your favourite meal. Another idea could be playing your music in the background while cooking the meal.
Declutter your living room:
Decluttering your living room is a good way to keep yourself busy.
Start colouring in a colouring book:
A lot of stores I know have some colouring books. So if you already have a colouring book you can work on that. Although, if you do not have a colouring book, I suggest you get one. It is another good way to pass time and it can be very relaxing.
Make a blog or if you have one write a blog post:
It is pretty easy starting a new blog. I personally suggest Tumblr or WordPress. You can even just have a blog for yourself and write personal stuff. Or you could start a blog like myself and others.
Have a movie night:
If you are in quarantine obviously you cannot go to a movie theater. So it would be good to watch some movies yourself.
Clean your kitchen:
I know in my home the kitchen constantly has to be cleaned. So if it needs clean you could clean it.
Video call a family member or friend:
If you are alone you should video call someone. It could be family member, friend, best friend etc.
Go online shopping:
I love shopping and in my opinion most people do. I would suggest not buying to many things though! I know for myself my shopping can get a bit bad some days.
Declutter your bathroom:
Honestly I do not have that much stuff in my bathroom. Despite the fact, I know some people that do have quite a bit of stuff in their bathroom. So try decluttering it especially if you haven’t for awhile.
Play some games on your phone:
I love playing games on my phone. It can be a great way to distract yourself and pass time as well.
In my opinion, everyone needs to exercise. It could simply just be going for a walk. If you already exercise that is great too.
Obviously in quarantine you cannot go to a nail place. So if you want you can give yourself a manicure.
Clean your windows:
When was the last time you cleaned your windows? I know for myself it has been awhile. So that is a great thing to do.
Have a couple of drinks:
Possibly you could relax and have a couple of drinks.
Napping is a great thing to do obviously if you are tired.
Yoga can be a great thing to do especially if you are like me and experience pain problems. I believe yoga is healthy for anyone though.
Make a coffee:
I love coffee but if you are someone who hates coffee this thing to do doesn’t count for you. Coffee always cheers me up.
Sketching on paper:
Some people have a very strong passion for art. So if you love art or even like it this would be awesome for you to do.
Clean your attic:
I know most people do not really use their attic at all. So it would be awesome to go to your attic and clean it up a bit.
Have a snack:
I love snacks so if you want to have a snack go for it!
Make some tea:
Tea is amazing for relaxation and it can be very good for your health.
Declutter your pantry:
I know my pantry needs to be decluttered once in awhile so this is a good idea for you to do.
Make some hot chocolate:
Hot chocolate is very tasty treat. I know with myself when I want to have a treat I sometimes have this. The reason why I prefer this is because one of my goals is to lose weight. So instead of a huge treat I have this.
Movie marathons are great if you have some time to have one. I recommended doing a movie marathon on the weekend though.
Clean out your microwave:
When was the last time you have cleaned your microwave? I know my microwave needs cleaned a lot. So if you have some time it is great to do this.
Do a face mask:
Taking care of your skin is a marvelous thing to do. I think everyone should take care of their skin.
I mentioned manicure before but you can also do a pedicure instead. I love when my nails are done.
I love relaxing baths! I have a bath especially when I have had a stressful day. Some people even use candles that is a great touch too.
Light some candles:
You can do unscented candles or scented candles. It is whatever you like best.
Clean your balcony:
If you live in apartment this is a good thing to do. You can sweep it and clean other things that are on your balcony.
Organize your dresser:
I have not organized my dresser for awhile. One thing I do every once in awhile is I go through my sock drawer. If I do not have matching socks I throw it in the garbage.
Declutter your emails:
The amount of emails I get can be sometimes stressful. Going through your emails can really ease your mind.
Laundry always has to be done usually. So if you have some time it is great to do some laundry.
Vacuum your home:
If you have carpet it is great to vacuum. Obviously, if you do not have carpet this does not apply to you.
Cleaning can sometimes be overwhelming. I personally hate cleaning my bathtub and I rather clean something else. But cleaning my bathtub has to be done either way.
Grow some plants:
If you have a house and a yard you can grow some plants outside. Although, let’s say you are in an apartment you can grow some on your balcony or grow some plants inside. Plants can actually cheer you up in ways too.
If you love puzzles this can be a great way to have some fun.
Usually with board games you have to play with somebody else. So if you do have another person living with you that is in quarantine you can play with them.
My three personal favourites are make a coffee, have a relaxing bath and journal.
