30 Things to do in Quarantine

IMG_4632

Hi everybody! Long time no post. I think we can all agree 2020 has been one of the strangest years. The only comforting part about this whole situation is that everyone is going through the same thing. We are all trying our best to social distance, stay at home, and keep up with our health during this uncertainty. Although my blog is primarily a travel blog, during this time I thought it would be fun to share things to do and ways to see the positive side of this temporary situation!

Here’s 30 things to do in quarantine:

  1. Have facetime dates with friends and family. My family has been using zoom, the video quality is amazing and you can zoom up to 100 people!
  2. Create and listen to a mood boosting playlist. Music has really been my saving grace during this. Here’s the playlist I made on spotify: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7JeJosg5uRd733Wrowf1cX?si=wtLMRc2ERqS0Kp2U1CTF1Q
  3. Spend time outside! One of the positive outcomes of this pandemic is everyone seems to be spending more time outdoors. Fresh air can do wonders when you’re stuck inside all day.
  4. Take rides! Another solution I’ve been taking advantage of to change up my scenery.
  5. Journal. This is a once in a lifetime event that could be interesting to read back on years from now.
  6. Clean. Clean. Clean. This is the time to finally declutter that spot in your closet or a box of random stuff that’s collected over time, we all have something. Now’s the time to tackle it!
  7. Catch up on some new shows. Lately I’ve been enjoying The Tiger King, The Good Place, and I hope to watch The Morning Show next.
  8. Try out some new recipes. I’ve been baking more than usual and it’s been fun having new treats in the house.
  9. Do a home workout. Just because the gyms are closed doesn’t mean you can’t get a nice workout in at home. I’ve been taking advantage of home workouts on Youtube. I recently finished Heather Robertson’s 12 week workout challenge, it was amazing!
  10. Go through clothes and shoes and donate! Now more than ever people are in need of clothes and shoes.
  11. Boost immune system. I’ve been making ginger shots and taking one a day to help my immune system. I will share the recipe on instagram soon!
  12. Read. Now’s the time to start a new book. If you’d rather listen to a book, right now Audible is offering any book for free, worth taking advantage of!
  13. Make a list of things you can’t wait to do once the stay at home orders aren’t in place.
  14. Support local businesses. Local places need the most support right now and most offer curbside, delivery, or take out options. Also be sure to tip!
  15. Have a game night. Break out the board and card games.
  16. Swap your winter and summer clothes out. By the time this is over, the warm weather will be here.
  17. Start a blog or another creative outlet!
  18. Take naps. This pandemic is a reset for the world and all of us experiencing it. Take the time to rest.
  19. Practice self care. Paint your nails, give yourself a facial, deep condition your hair, go makeup free for a week.
  20. Keep a routine. This is probably the hardest thing to keep doing when all you can do is stay inside. But, waking up and going to bed at similar time is good to continue to feel some normalcy.
  21. Pick a home project to do. Paint a room, organize the cabinets, clean out the basement or garage.
  22. Watch a motivational video. Despite all the negativity circling the internet during this pandemic, there are positive things to watch as well. This will help you feel good and stay optimist about the situation.
  23. Go through old pictures. I have so many pictures to organize and go through. It’s also fun to look back on old photos.
  24. Have a movie binge night. Watch all eight Harry Potters!
  25. Learn a new language.
  26. Take creative indoor photos. Document what you’re doing in quarantine through photos.
  27. Cook a fancy meal. A friend of mine made a thanksgiving spread just because!
  28. Build a fort out of blankets and pillows.
  29. Have a picnic in your backyard.
  30. Go technology or social media free for a few days or a week.
