    10 Things To Do At Home

    If you're doing your part for humanity and quaratining yourself, here are 10 ideas to keep you busy while you're at home (aside from washing your hands)!

    1. Learn a New Hobby

    Always wanted to learn how to play piano or become a photographer? Now's the time! Order what you need online and Google the rest! It takes time to learn something new, and you now have the time to do it. Take advantage of your quarantine and pick up a new hobby.

    2. Make Something

    DIY projects and crafts are a great way to pass the time. Pinterest has TONS of things you can make with step-by-step tutorials on how to do it all. If you need supplies, just order them online or choose a task that you already have everything you need for. Make homemade hand sanitizer or your own jewelry. There's so many ideas out there to choose from, you just need to pick one and get started on your work-from-home project.

    3. Binge Watch

    Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus, Amazon Prime, etc. If you don't have an account for one of these, chances are you know someone who does who would be willing to share (in exchange for some toilet paper). Catch up on your favorite show, watch reruns or start a new series! Personally, I would avoid any shows or movies that focus around virus pandemics, but it's up to you.

    4. Read

    Have a book you've been wanting to read? Did someone recommend a book that they think you would like? Just feel like escaping into another magical world for a little while? Pick up a book and pass the quaratined time with words.

    5. Shop Online

    Open that amazon wish list you've been building up and start clicking "Add to Cart" people! Online shopping, or even online window shopping, is always fun to do when you're bored. You may end up finding something you never thought you would to keep your busy during self-quarantine time.

    6. Be Social-ish

    Social distancing is a must right now, but social media isn't! FaceTime your friends, start a group chat, or email your loved ones. You can still be social even from your living room.

    7. Puzzles

    Keep your mind sharp while you're helping humanity by staying home with puzzles! The more pieces to the puzzle, the harder the challenge. Word searches, crossword puzzles and activity books count too!

    8. Games

    If you live with family, open up a board game and have family game night! If you're alone, play on online game or video game to pass the time. Games can help bring people together (virtually) during these confusing times.

    9. Write

    Shakespeare wrote King Lear during his time in quarantine from the plague. So, this is the perfect time to write your own masterpiece. Put pen to paper to pass the time until this blows over.

    10. Take a Walk

    You still need some Vitamin D in your system. Take a walk or do things outside (just not around other people) like reading, exercising, or playing a solo sport.
