5 Things to Keep You Busy During Quarantine

Audrey Wiggam, Staff Writer

Getting bored while staying home during this quarantine is an everyday occurrence for me. I can no longer go hangout with my friends or go out to eat, but now have to sit at home everyday. I have discovered a few activities for my family and I to do during this quarantine to keep us busy and not be bored out of our minds everyday.

Cleaning out your closet

If you are like me, you have many clothes that you no longer wear but never have time to actually go through everything and get rid of anything that is too small or that you don’t wear anymore. Since we are all stuck at home, now would be a perfect time to clean out those closets!

Do a Puzzle

I could not remember the last time I did a puzzle before all of this craziness happened. While being home all of these days, my family has now completed three puzzles! Doing puzzles actually improves your mood and lowers your stress levels. You can also use doing a puzzle as a good activity for family bonding.

Go Outside

These last few weeks, my family has went on family walks of an evening, played basketball, rode bikes, and had many campfires. Take advantage of the days with nice weather instead of being cooped up inside all of the time.

Have Family Game Night

My family has been having family game nights. We all sit around the kitchen table together and play Rummikub and Dominoes. We have even found apps to play these games with our extended family since we can not be with them.

Redecorate Your Room

Since you have all of this free time on your hands, you can always redecorate your room! Maybe you haven’t redecorated in a long time or you just want a change, you have lots of time to make your room how you want it to be. Although it’s not a good idea to go to stores right now, you can order most things online so you don’t have to leave your house!

During this quarantine, stay at home and stay healthy!!!
