Things to Do at Home During Quarantine

When boredom rears its ugly head, and it’s inevitable especially during quarantine, it’s not fun. No one wants to be stuck at home, but having things to do at home will help pass the time. This post offers suggestions of things to do at home that will keep you productive and active.

10 Things to Do at Home During Quarantine (And After) That Aren’t Netflix!

1. Take an Online Course 

If you’re like me, you get bored very easily and you need something to keep you occupied. There are several free online courses you can enroll in right now to take your mind off being at home.

2. Read a Book

Being stuck at home is the perfect time to read all those books you’ve been putting off. If you have an Amazon Prime account, browse the free Prime books on Amazon and then download them to the Kindle App.

3. Listen to a Podcast

Podcasts are great if you don’t want to read a book or listen to music. Some of my personal favorites include Up and Vanished, To Live and Die in L.A., Directionally Challenged, and Straight Up with Stassi.

4. Have a Family Game Night

Avoid Netflix and video games for a night and spend it together playing board games.

5. Try a New Recipe

If you love to cook, order a few cookbooks online and get to work!

6. Journal

Now is the perfect time to start a journal. Not only does journaling help clear your thoughts, it can also help stimulate your brain activity.

7. Clean Out Your Closet

Spring cleaning. Quarantine cleaning. It doesn’t matter, it just needs to be done. Take advantage of all this down time and clean out your closet. A good rule of thumb is to donate and get rid of anything you haven’t worn or used in the past year.

8. Foster a Pet

Shelters all over the country need fosters for cats and dogs. Call your local animal shelter and inquire about becoming a foster. Who knows, you may just find the perfect furry friend to join your family permanently.

9. Start a Garden

Test out your green thumb and start a garden! Since we are all stuck at home, it’s the perfect time.

10. Scrapbook

Have a bunch of old photos laying around the house? Start a scrapbook of your memories. It will be nice to have something to look back on in a few years.
