Bored in quarantine?

In a time when we’re constantly hearing about things we CAN’T do, it’s important to focus on what we CAN do!

Here’s some things we can do while this COVID craziness tries to control our lives, as well as some online resources:

  • Call someone you haven’t spoken to in awhile…a friend from college, a former co-worker or maybe your grandma who misses hearing your voice. Do it via FaceTime for an even better opportunity to re-connect.
  • Say a prayer for the people who are most affected by this. I’m sure many of us feel like this is an odd, inconvenient situation, but some are getting hit really hard with lost income, lack of basic supplies and of course, health issues.
  • Watch a new movie. Have you seen any of the Oscar’s or Golden Globe’s best pictures? Watch a bunch then have a family vote, or binge-watch lots of series on Netflix, or whatever streaming apparatus you have.
  • Get outside! Here’s a list of outdoor activities that are safe with social distancing:

Outdoor Activities OK With Safe Social Distancing

  • Catch up on laundry and cleaning! Strip all the beds and crawl into freshly-washed bedding tonight.
  • Read a good book…in a bubblebath…with candles…and wine. If splurging on a new hardcover at Target isn’t an option, scour the shelves at your local library or thrift store!
  • Walk outside. Fresh air, endorphins, vitamin D are all good for the body and mind!
  • Get artistic. Draw, paint, write a poem. No one has to see it, but creativity make us feel more alive.
  • Dye your hair a new color or try a new style.
  • Reconnect with your partner with these 9 “date night” ideas:

  • Work out like crazy! The motivation of a New Year’s resolution has probably faded, but warm weather isn’t too far away! #summerbod
  • Road trip
  • Show your furbabies some extra love. Let your feline or canine snuggle on your lap while you sign them up for their very own photoshoot! $50 from every session will be donated to Happily Ever After Animal Sanctuary in Green Bay!!

  • Write a bunch of thank you notes. For what? I have no idea, but you’ll think of something. It feels so good to be appreciated, so let someone know!
  • Cook. We eat out a lot, but if that’s no longer an option, now is the time to try a new recipe! Make some soup or bake cookies for the kids to decorate. Share your favs on social media so others can try it too!
  • Make a list of things that need fixing around the house then tackle them.
  • Declutter, organize, make a donation pile, etc.
