Hello friends! As we continued to self-Isolate and practice social distancing due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Finding things to keep our sanity inside our homes is something that we're all trying to do at this time. Hopefully, some of my tips below are extremely helpful for you.
Staying in can be very productive. Utile, this time for home projects that you have been procrastinating on. Decluttering your closet for things that you've been wanting to donate and re-organizing around the house, are great ways to keep ourselves busy.
This can also be the perfect time to start a new hobby. Something you've always wanted to do and never had time to do it because of your busy schedule.
Baking is something I never did before self-Isolation. Surprisingly, I've been enjoying it very much, and I have found some delicious recipes on Pinterest.
We love ordering take-out to support our local restaurants. However, to save money, cooking is something that I have been doing a lot off. YouTube and Pinterest have been awesome to find some easy to follow recipes. Cooking books have also been a lifesaver.
Start a small garden. Plants can be very therapeutic for you.
Adult coloring books have been amazing to keep me calm while I'm feeling stressed.
Puzzles are a great way to stimulate the mind.
Board games are a fun way to distract the mind. We have a family game night at least once a week.
Thanks to technology, we now have apps like Zoom and Facetime that allow us to still communicate and see our love ones. Start a book club, and meet once a week to discuss your current read, have a virtual cocktail party with your favorite girls or even have movie trivia night. These are all fun ways to spend time with the people we love.
Staying healthy during this time is extremely important. Make sure that you are getting at least 8 hours of sleep, keep your self hydrated, and eat healthily.
Even though social distancing has been extended, we can still get outside to breathe some fresh air. Walking around the neighborhood, go on a bike ride, or work-out with a jump rope in your backyard. These are great ways to get some much-needed vitamin-D.
Remember, Social distancing is about staying 6 feet away from people not staying away from enjoying the sun and being outdoors.
