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.
