Ideas to Make the Most of Your Time at Home During Quarantine

Father and daughter playing chess in the living room at homeWorking remotely, staying home in quarantine, and social distancing at the grocery store are a few efforts that many people are being challenged by during this time. 

Staying home has its perks, such as staying in your pajamas all day and having time to work on those household tasks you’ve been putting off. 

However, staying home practically twenty-four seven can have you experiencing cabin fever this spring. 

Fortunately, it’s springtime in Florida which means great weather, so there’s a bit more you can do to keep yourself occupied during quarantine since you aren’t snowed into your home.

How to Make the Most of Your Time at Home

Staying at home can quickly become dull, but below, we’re giving you several ideas to help you make the most of your time at home.

Read a Book

Between the stress and travel time of your morning and evening commute to work and the daily hustle and bustle of regular life, reading a book easily gets pushed aside. Perhaps now is the perfect time to pick up your reading glasses and dive into that novel you’ve been trying to finish.

Spring Cleaning

It’s Spring, and there’s no better time than the present. If you haven’t had a chance to clean your home of clutter and dust, other than COVID-19 cleaning and disinfecting, now may be the time to go through your closets, garage, attic and spare rooms. 

At Home Spa Day

With all the accumulated stress during this time, don’t forget about self-care and self-love. Have some fun and treat yourself to an at home spa day. Make a DIY facemask, grab your favorite nail polish, hop in a bubble bath, meditate, and relax. 

Find New Hobbies and Activities

Try something new or pick up an old hobby to keep yourself occupied and stimulated during quarantine. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Paint or draw
  • DIY home decor
  • Garden
  • Cook something new
  • Learn a language
  • Play games & do puzzles
  • Journal your day
  • Learn a new instrument

Fuel Your Adventurous Side

You may not be able to go on vacation just yet, but there’s nothing stopping you from planning your next dream adventure or taking a virtual tour around the world right now. Have some fun and get excited by planning your dream vacation.

Have a Night-in with Your Pals
