Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, social distancing is quickly becoming the new normal. However, if you’re like most people, you realize that staying inside is quite an adjustment. As you attempt to find ways to entertain yourself beyond dog walks and binge-watching tv, we have come up with some exciting activities to do while at home.
Connect with friends virtually
FaceTime is something we may have taken for granted before social distancing, but now it’s coming in handy. If you can’t be with friends and family, give them a call! You can even use platforms like zoom and skype to hold a virtual party.
Arts and crafts
There are plenty of new things to try, especially if you have all the time in the world. Arts and crafts are a great way to pass time and have fun. Drawing and painting are especially great for expressing yourself, and while you may not be an expert, free YouTube tutorials are available right at your fingertips.
Get creative with your cooking! Whether it’s been sitting in your Pinterest boards or bookmarked in your cookbooks, it’s time to make that recipe! Need some motivation? Make it alongside your favorite chefs and celebrities with the Masterclass teach course. They cover a variety of different dishes, and you are free to go at your own pace!
Unwind with yoga
There’s never been a better time to take a deep breath and do some stretching. Yoga will help you relax and relieve stress and anxiety. And thanks to YouTube and online yoga classes, all you really need is a yoga mat and some good WIFI.
Work out at home
While gyms and workout studios may be closed at the moment, it’s still essential to remain active. Switch to an at-home workout routine by pulling up online workouts, checking out some fitness apps, or even going for a run around your neighborhood. Remember, any kind of workout is better than no workout at all!
Play board games
It’s time to dig out the board games that are stashed away in the hall closet. Board games are an excellent way to spend some quality time with roommates or family. See if you can beat them in classics like Clue, Monopoly, or The Game of Life. They’ll be just as fun as you remember!
