Unless you’re Patrick Star and live under a rock, I'm sure you've heard of this ~little~ thing called the coronavirus. It's currently forcing millions of people indoors, fun! If you're like me, it is already way past the family bonding time and you're ready to pull your hair out. So here are some ideas to both ease your mind and entertain you for at least some more time! Although if you accomplish this list within a month - I'm sorry, you're shit outta luck. At that point, you might want to consider sitting in your car for fun?
Do a puzzle - I’m sure you’ve seen about 100 hundred Instagram and Snapchat stories of other people doing puzzles. They’re a great way to pass time and you just feel so accomplished at the end.
Chef it up - of course, I recommend either vegan/vegetarian/pescatarian recipes :)
DYE YOUR HAIR - this is one I plan to do very soon because why not! Both my classes and work are online and honestly, something about bold hair is so appealing to me. I’m thinking of blue plum or lilac?
Crochet/Knit - Once I understood the concept of crochet, I enjoyed it. So try it out, it might be relaxing for you too.
Spa Day/Night - Glow up!
Cleaning - Clean out that closest, or any other mess in your house. If it’s not yours, your parents will thank you thus making life instantly better.
Start a Blog
Start a youtube channel - do all these things and you instantly have a ton of videos. This is the perfect time because everyone is bored at home watching content.
Binge Watch - finish a great show! I personally recommend Ozark, the third season came out and it is FIRE.
Movie Night - Take advantage of the Netflix Party and have a virtual movie night with your friends or significant other. Or have a movie night by yourself, no shame in that!
Foster a kitty or puppy - I adopted my own kitten in October and he is the best.
Play Video Games - Fortnite is my favorite, but of course, I’ve brought back Animal Crossing on the DS.
DIYs - clothes, decorations, jewelry, functional things, I mean it’s 2020, what can’t you DIY.
Level up on Social - take this time to do photoshoots by yourself or push out content on LinkedIn.
Podcasts - I like Podcasts especially How I Built This and Emma Chamberlain’s Anything Goes.
Exercise - Get in shape! Gyms being closed are no excuse for not exercising, take advantage of the great outdoors because that’s really all you can do at this point.
Write a Book - or write in general, anything is better than nothing.
Meditate - meditating is calming and makes you more productive
Side Hustle - put extra work into your side hustle or start it. If you have extra time, at least start creating content for your business.
Makeup - Practice your beauty skills and when this all blows over you will not regret mastering the art of blending.
Facetime - virtually check-in on your loved ones. This can be a stressful time for a lot of people and it’s important to show your love and support.
Make Art - Credit goes to Emma Chamberlain. Now is a fantastic time to practice painting, drawing, sculpting, or anything really.
Read - Reading is very important, stay educated kids.
Watch Youtube - go on a youtube deep-dive and see where you end up!
Go Zero-Waste - Practice living sustainably at home!
Compost - Start a compost pile.
Garden - Start either an indoor or outdoor garden depending on the weather where you live.
Star Gaze - Especially if you live in a big city where you normally cannot see the stars, take advantage of the decreased air pollution.
Have a Picnic - by yourself (or not).
Sleep/Relax - If you’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed out, take a nap or getting on a regular sleep schedule.
