Staying at home in the spirit of social distancing during a pandemic can be mind-numbing. There are several activities you can do to have fun instead of wasting away.
Here are some easy-to-implement suggestions:
Do Puzzles and Play Games
One of the best ways to keep yourself occupied while still having fun is by working on a puzzle. Any kind of puzzle can be exhilarating, whether it’s a Sudoku book or a traditional jigsaw. You can find puzzles at your local game shop.
If you’re at home with your family members, playing board games or card games can be an enjoyable pastime. You can also find multi-player games at online casinos like SCR888, which you can enjoy with your loved ones.
Another exciting idea is to create an obstacle course for your children. Collect some bits and pieces around your home and build a mini obstacle course. It doesn’t have to be sophisticated. You can even come up with a reward scheme for the winners.
Read Some Books
Maybe you’ve always wanted to read some books, but you couldn’t find time due to a tight work schedule. Now that you’re staying at home, with a lot of time at your disposal, it’s time to get those books and start reading. You can order some of your favourite titles from your local bookstore.
Connect With Friends
Just because you can’t meet physically doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with friends. Consider writing and mailing letters to your friends and family. Ink on paper can be therapeutic, but video chats and emails are also fun.
Learn a New Language
Learning a new language may require a lot of time and focus. You can capitalize on the free time you have to learn a new language.
If you have no idea where to start, there are many places to learn a language online. There are even apps you can download on your Android or iOS device.
Start a Home Improvement Project
If there’s an area of your houseyou’ve never found time to fix, you’ve got the time now.
You can take on simple projects like hanging a gallery wall or creating a reading nook. You could even build a home office, especially if you’re working from home. You can order the supplies you need for the project from your local hardware store.
Have a Family Photo Day
If you’re at home with your spouse and kids, or other family members, it would be fun having a family photo day at home.
Dress up in amusing outfits, strike some poses, and remember to include the props. You can then print the pictures and add them to an album.
Try a Home Workout
Practising social distancing may mean not going to the gym. You can keep fit at home by following an exercise regimen using the resources you have at home.
These activities will help you kill the boredom and pass the time as the world tries to fight COVID-19.
