5 Activities To Keep You Busy At Home


Activities To Keep You Busy At Home


As the COVID-19 outbreak continues, many of us are practicing social distancing and staying home to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. Here are some activities you can do to stay busy (and sane).

While social distancing is a great way to protect yourself and others from getting COVID-19, staying inside can leave you feeling a little bored, disconnected and stir crazy. If you’re feeling this way, you’re not alone.

Here are some activities to keep you busy while you’re at home:

Do a puzzle



Jigsaw puzzles are a great activity for both kids and adults, and various studies point to the benefits of puzzle-solving, including better spatial skills, memory retention, and cooperation with others. Whether you doing one by yourself or with another person, the feeling when you fit the last piece to complete the puzzle can't be beat. 


Clear out your wardrobe



Dedicate your new-found time and attention to sorting out your clothes, declutter your home, ditching items you haven't worn for six months and co-ordinating clothes into sections so it's easier to browse in the mornings. This is a great opportunity to get inspired by new outfits or rediscover an old favourite.


Host a Netflix viewing party



If you and your friends or family have a Netflix subscription, you can schedule a time to watch a movie or show synced together. A free Google Chrome extension called Netflix Party syncs video playback so you can play and pause at the same time. It also has a group chat feature so you can keep the conversation going while you watch. Everyone in the party has to have a Netflix account though, so it's not entirely free.

Work Your Way Through a Cookbook



If you're someone who collects cookbooks but only ever really makes one of the recipes or you've never actually even made a recipe from them and simply use them ass coffee table decor, this is the perfect opportunity to dive in. It'll make cooking (and eating) so much more enjoyable. Plan out themed dinners to spice it up even more!

Set yourself a drawing challenge



Doing something creative, like drawing, can help get your brain into a state of ‘flow’. You don’t need to be any good – you just need to get stuck in. “They can be of anything – you could draw your face in the mirror, a house plant or a chair.” After a few days, you’ll notice your drawing skills improving too. Keep all your drawings to track your progress.

Ways To Make Sex Last Longer

How To Last Longer In Bed There are some things in life that, inevitably, don’t last a long time. But sex… should not be one of those things. Sure, there’s a time and place for a quickie, but for the most part, sex should be an experience that is enjoyed for as long as you and your partner want, preferably with no time limit. It’s not exactly news that it takes men less time than women to reach orgasm. And once it happens, sex is often over. After ejaculation, men go through a refractory period where they are unable to achieve another erection for a certain length of time (women have little to no refractory period). It’s normal and it varies, but it does have a way of interrupting intercourse. The only way to defer it is to delay orgasm, which is why we’ve put together a list of tips for lasting longer in bed. 1. Boost L-arginine Consumption Amino acids are the building blocks of protein.

Insanely Tips To Please Your Man In Bed You probably want to know how to please your man in bed. But guys aren't always so verbal about what they need. The bedroom is one of the great stages of male performance, so what you see on TV is typically far from what can (and should) be delivered in reality. That's why sex experts chimed in with more accurate insight about what guys  really want you to know  when the two of you climb into bed. Here are the top sex tips for women. 1. Do It With the Lights On You may be worried about what your husband thinks of your post-breast-feeding boobs, your C-section scar, or that at some point, he'll stop being attracted to you because you look a little — OK, a lot—different than you did on your wedding day. But men rarely notice your self-perceived flaws — they only become aware of them if you're preoccupied with them or go out of your way to cover up. "It's true, men are very visual," says relationship expert   Bernardo M
