Things to Do While in Quarantine.

 

Hello and happy Saturday! I hope you are all staying safe at this time. With the Coronavirus making people sick, not being able to work, and also making social distancing a thing, most of us are in quarantine or just staying home to be safe. Now being that I’m a total introvert and going out isn’t my thing, I tend to make do and have tons of hobbies/ projects to keep myself busy. I know that being at home for a long period of time can drive some of us crazy with boredom, but there are some things I do to help make this time better. Please feel free to comment and share your favorite shows, podcasts, youtubers, and things to do.

2. Call a friend, facetime, text all your friends and family and check up on them. It’s good to keep in contact with the ones you love and care about. 

 

 

3. Workout at home. For all the gym junkies out there, there are so many workouts you can do at home: pushups, planks, squats, sit-ups, you can even look up videos online to show you what kind of workouts to do all in the comfort of your home. Maybe even taking up yoga (which is my favorite) can be a thing now that you have time to spare. 

 

4. Cooking. (My favorite thing to do) I love trying out new food and recipes. I’m always looking up recipes online or reinventing recipes I know. I’m trying little by little to go vegetarian and then vegan. It’s mainly for me trying to be the healthiest I can and help the animals. I don’t prefer eating meat as a necessity and I can do without it. Some recipes I look up are on:

 

  • Allrecipes
  • Pickup Limes, Avantegardevegan, yovana, bingingwithbabish, Tasty, Bon Appetit, Food Wishes on YouTube
  • FoodNetwork 
  • TheKitchn

5. Most importantly, SELF-CARE. There are a lot of us who don’t do self-care and practicing self-care isn’t a easy thing to do. We all have busy lives, jobs that are super demanding, and tend to leave self-care as the last priority. With the quarantine and everyone at home, this is the perfect time for self-care. Some things I like to do for Self-care is :

 

  • Take a long bath with Epsom salts, a bath bomb or a bubble bath.
  • Listen to music you love.
  • Write or journal.
  • Meditate for at least 5 minutes.
  • Catch up on those Zzz’s.
  • Use a diffuser with your favorite essential oils, burn a candle with your favorite scent.
  • Do some yoga.
  • De-cluttering/ Spring cleaning, helps me release stress.
  • DO what makes you happy and what gives you comfort. 

Peace and Love Always.
