With the coronavirus pandemic hitting America and the new social distancing regulations, many of us are stuck at home for the majority of the day. You may not know what to do with all the extra time you have on your hands, so here’s a list to give you some ideas:

  1. Try out a new recipe: Even if you aren’t a good cook or baker, this is a great way to pass the time and take your mind off of all the negative aspects of life. Whether it’s a four course meal or some sugar cookies, you have plenty of time to perfect your dish.
  2. Start working out: You don’t have to go to the gym to exercise as there are many home workouts you can do in your own bedroom. Exercising can help you work off any pent up energy you have and you can get a head start on your summer body.
  3. Bond with your family: Before our extended break you may have been super busy with school and various extracurricular activities. Because of this you might not have been able to spend a lot of time with your family, but now you can. Have a family game night or watch a movie together.
  4. Clean your house/bedroom: Cleaning the space you spend the most time in can help you to focus better on your work. It’s also a good way to unwind. You could even redecorate or organize while you’re at it.
  5. Paint a picture: Painting is a great way to calm your mind and get your creative juices flowing. You can find pictures to recreate on pinterest or Google images, or you can come up with something original.
  6. Home repairs: Now is a great time to finish up any home improvement projects you started and never completed.
  7. Binge Watch a TV show: You can catch up on your favorite show and even find a new one to enjoy.
  8. Have a movie marathon: Grab your favorite snacks and a bunch of your favorite movies or movies you’ve never seen and start watching. There’s even a new feature on Netflix that allows you to stream with a friend. You can have fun while still practicing social distancing.
  9. Do your schoolwork: Even though you aren’t physically going to school you still have to keep up with the assignments your teachers give you
  10. Write: Expressing your thoughts on paper in any form is a good way to show how you’re feeling without having to share it with other people. Writing a song or poem allows you to get creative while writing in a diary or journal allows you to organize your daily experiences. You could even write a story or script about what’s going on in the world today.
