2020 will go down as one of the most memorable years in history. Almost everyone around the world is in, or should be, in quarantine, to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). If you are listening to the CDC, and staying in quarantine, whether it’s day one or day 7, you may be going crazy and be very bored. Your family may be driving you crazy and you’ve probably had too many conversations with your pets.
Now, would be a great time to catch up on all the tasks in your house that you have been meaning to do.
Here are the top 5 things to do at home if you’re bored during quarantine.
Clean Your Room
If you have clothes on your floor and a big mess in your room, now would be a great time to clean it. Cleaning your room can lead to finding things you have been looking for years. Also, don’t just tidy things up, do a deep clean – vacuum, dust, wash your sheets, etc. With the virus going around and spring allergies coming out in full force, getting rid of the dust, dirt, and dander can help you breathe easier.
Not only should you clean your bedroom but clean the entire house. Along with dusting, vacuuming, etc., wipe down everything, disinfect, and just do a thorough clean of your house. Also, Spring cleaning is a good time to get rid of clothes or anything else that you don’t have the need for anymore. You can make someone else’s day/life by donating your old items.
Have you been caught up with work and responsibilities and haven’t had the time to start/finish that book you’ve been meaning to get to? Personally, I’ve been carrying around this book in my purse, and haven’t had the chance to crack it open yet. Then, when you are done with the books, you can put them in your spring-cleaning bags and donate them to others.
Binge Watch a Show or Franchise
Thank God for Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, and movies. They are always here for us when we need them. If you have been wanting to watch a TV show that everyone is talking about and you have never seen, what a better way to spend 2+ weeks than to relax on the couch in your pajamas, binge-watching shows and movies.
Do a Puzzle
This is a fun activity that you can do by yourself or with family. It is a great way to keep your brain working while having fun at the same time. A great technique for putting together a puzzle is to get the border together and then separate pieces by color. Once you finish, you can use puzzle glue and let it dry, and hang the puzzle up in a frame for others and yourself to enjoy or you can take it apart and do it all over again or start another puzzle.
How are you keeping yourself occupied during the quarantine? Remember to wash your hands and don’t infect others, if you think you may have been infected.
