|15 Distracting Things to Do During Quarantine|
Last week I wrote about ten calming and distracting things you can do during these crazy quarantine times.
This week I'll add another 15 suggestions for you.
1. 5000 Piece Puzzles
Ok, maybe just 1000 pieces will do. Family members of mine have tackled this one already.
2. Read the Hilarious Twitter Hashtag #QuarantineLife
The top tweets will crack you up. My mom and I were in stitches reading them!
3. Crossword Puzzles
Do you love to do crossword puzzles? If so, get out the book.
4. Redecorate a Room
That may involve trips to the store, so you may be restricted on what you can actually do. But hey, if you can even tackle one or two aspects of a redecorating project, good for you! Here's a brief helpful video on how to mix patterns in home decor:
5. Reorganize Your Cupboards and Closets
To some people, this is therapy, to others torture. Either way, get it done! If you've been putting off dealing with the disaster behind your closet door, now is a good time to get 'er done.
6. Learn a New Language
There are several common APPs you can use to learn a new language. Here are a few you can check out: Babbel, DuoLingo, and MemRise.
7. Learn to Play Piano Via an App
Yes, there's an APP for that. Here are two Apple Apps you can check out - Flowkey and Note Quest.
8. Assemble All Those Poems You've Written, And Self-Publish Your Book
Do you have a box of personally written poems that need a permanent place? How about writing that poetry book you've always wanted to write. I crossed that one off my bucket list last year and self-published my first book. I've since published five more and am working on my sixth. Here are some things I've learned along the way that may help you get started.
9. Crafts - DIY Crafting
I know, this is obvious. Knit, sew, or crochet those virus blobs. If you have friends who also enjoy crafts, turn it into a game. Tackle the same project and whoever finishes first gets a prize - maybe a book.
10. Learn Calligraphy
Family members of mine did this one the other day. You can get multiple tutorials on YouTube.
11. Coloring Books are Fun, Even for Adults
This is one I plan to do to relax. Coloring can be utterly satisfying. Color with the kids or you can always buy grown-up coloring books online.
12. Turn Your Life Into a Reality Show
If you're bold, go for it. Vlog your life and upload your daily routine to your social media audience. If you don't have an audience, you could end up with one fast lol - be careful!
13. Take Cooking Lessons Online
Head over to Youtube and start watching all those addictive cooking videos! Have you always wanted to learn French Cooking? Now's your chance.
14. Assemble and Sort All Your Photos on Your Laptop & Phone
Sort all your photos and store them on a USB or in the cloud. Or create a family wall of photos - finally frame and display all those family favorites.
15. Handwrite Letters to Your Family
Handwrite a letter. Don't type it. Handwrite it and mail it to mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, or the kids. Include the kid's drawings or photos as well. Yes, you can do this online, but there's something very special about getting something like this in the mail.
