22 Ideas

Staying inside all day can get pretty dull. These activities are guaranteed to brighten your day.

  1. Bake – Treats like cookies, brownies, or cake are a fun activity to fill up the day and a delicious desert at the end.
  2. Write poetry – Get creative and practice sonnets, haikus, or free verse!
  3. Bullet journal – Whip out those snazzy new markers and some washing tape and get to work!
  4. Read – Have a book that you’ve been wanting to read, but it keeps dusting away, simply lying on your shelf? Quarantine is the perfect time to snuggle up and dive into a great story.
  5. Draw – Practice makes perfect.
  6. Paint – Create a masterpiece.
  7. Do at-home workouts – There are a ton of at-home exercise tutorials on YouTube, or you can just to sets of push-ups, crunches, jumping jacks, lunges, and squats.
  8. Go on a run – It’s a great way to get outside and stay fit!
  9. Go on a walk – Going on a walk with a family member and just taking, even just for a couple of minutes, can be very refreshing. Just remember to casually avoid others when walking, or go at a time where less people are out.
  10. Go on a bike ride – It’s an adventure, and traveling by bike is pretty quick.
  11. Yoga – Meditating is very relaxing.
  12. Complete a puzzle – Putting together a jigsaw puzzle is a fun intellectual challenge.
  13. Fly a kite – If you have a kite, go out on a windy day and let it swirl through the sky!
  14. Garden – Water and fertilize your plants, or start a home vegetable garden.
  15. Have a dance party – Compile a playlist and challenge your family members to a dance battle!
  16. Practice photography – Go outside during golden hour and take a picture of the beautiful peony in your backyard.
  17. Play a board game – Monopoly, Scrabbled, The Game of Life, Connect 4…
  18. Play cards – Crazy Eights, Go Fish, Kings in the Corner…
  19. Trivia Night – Compile trivia about family, or a particular topic or subject.
  20. Organize – Take time to clean out an absurdly messy desk drawer, or closet, or kitchen, or garage! You’ll feel a lot better when the task is complete.
  21. Watch Netflix – Odds are that you’ve already done this, but still kick back, relax and watch your favorite series. Some of my favorites are The Office and Stranger Things.
  22. Practice a musical instrument – Learn a new song and perform a concert for your family.

Tips

Being productive and happy during times like these can be difficult. Here are a couple of my tips and tricks!

  • Go to bed and wake up at a reasonable time. Although it may seem silly, if you stick to a schedule, even if it’s more lenient than your regular one, you’ll be more productive.
  • Don’t procrastinate on the important tasks. You’ll feel happier if you get it done and then relax.
  • Get your body moving every day. Exercise has been proved to positively influence mood and mental health!
  • Interact with other people every day! Talk to your family, FaceTime friends, and Zoom colleagues. It can be easy to shut out from the world, but instead use this as a time to reach out to loved ones.
  • And lastly, stay safe! Exercise caution and follow the recommendations of scientists and doctors.
