Get your body moving and work out
It’s easy to fall into a funk when staying home, cause it’s just so damn difficult to get out of that cozy warm bed and start your routine. The fact that we are encouraged to stay home in order to stay safe doesn’t mean that we have to lay in bed or sit on the couch all day. It’s important for our health, both physical and mental, that we get our bodies moving and work out. Lucky for us, in this digital age, there are so many workouts you can find online that don’t require any equipment. So, just take 30 minutes out of your day and move - we promise it’ll be good for you!
Cook a delicious dinner for the people you’re quarantined with
Now that you have time, it’s truly rewarding to do something nice for your loved ones. And what better way to show someone you care than by cooking a delicious homemade dinner for them? Try out new recipes, use your leftover fruits and veggies, and the results will be stunning. If you’re in a rut and don’t know what to make, we have numerous boards on Pinterest full of mouthwatering recipes. Just click here: https://www.pinterest.com/coolinastore/
Read the book you haven’t had time to read till now
One of those underappreciated activities of today is reading, but you should do more of it. It’s good for the soul, and a perfect way to pass time while practising social distancing. You can also read short stories and blogs online - like the one you’re reading right now ;)
Take up a new hobby
It’s the perfect time to start something new that you haven’t done before! Whether it’s taking up cooking, baking, exercising, video editing, graphic design - whatever it is, this is the sign you’ve been waiting for: do it now. There are so many online courses you can find if you’re looking to study a specific topic or immerse yourself in a specific field, just check out websites like Coursera and Skillshare.
Binge on Netflix
The guilty pleasure we all share. Yes, it may not be the most fulfilling hobby, and it’s not like you gain anything by doing it - but it’s just so fun. Plus, it’s an amazing way to unwind after a long day, and get your mind away from all the negativity we hear on the news all day. Plus, there are so many incredible shows available - it’s almost a crime not to watch them.
Clean up your house
Time for some spring cleaning! If you’ve been avoiding cleaning your house this year, it’s time to do so now. Change up your closet, clean the rooms, empty out your refrigerator and get rid of expired foods. Open up your Tupperware drawer, and finally match the lids to containers. You’ll feel so much better afterwards - and your house will be squeaky clean.
Make a list for all the things you’re grateful for
It’s easy to be negative and pessimistic when it feels like everything around you is crumbling according to the news. But don’t let that get to you. Instead, take time out of your day to write down everything you are grateful for, and everything you’re looking forward to once quarantine season is over. Be social while distancing yourself, facetime your family, text your friends and remember that you’re not alone. Everything will be back to normal before you know it!
