While we’re in these strange times of isolation and quarantine, many of us might find ourselves getting bored or feeling restless. But there are plenty of things you can do, and therefore I want to share 15 things to do at home. Just for pure inspiration if you need some ✨
15 Things To Do at Home
Tidy up & Organise your Home
Spring is here, and there’s really no better time than now to do a proper Spring Cleaning! So why not Marie-Kondo your entire home, and get rid of the things that no longer brings you joy, clean your space and rearrange your furniture’s? I’ve already started and I’m already feeling better and better for every room I get cleaned and organised.
You could paint a picture, or you can paint a wall! I just ordered some painting in a beautiful nude colour the other day and this coming week I’ll be painting one of the walls in my living room to spice up the interior a bit. I’m also thinking about painting some pictures for the wall as well.
Go for Walks (if allowed)
Depending on where you live in the world, I know that the may or may not be a possibility at the moment. For those of you who live in countries where this is still fully allowed – get out and get some fresh air, move your body and be extremely grateful for the ‘simple’ thing we used to take for granted such as going for walks outside, because this simple thing has been limited for people around the globe. I know that I’ll never take this simple act for granted ever again
Try out a new Recipe
Why not try out some delicious new recipes? It could be a lovely desert, snack or a delicious dinner recipe that you’ve been wanting to try forever but never really found the time to try out – now is the perfect time!
Of course this has to be on the list, one of my absolute favourite activities – reading! If you need some book inspiration, then just search for ‘book’ at my blog and you’ll find tons of recommendations.
Make a Home Spa Day
We have more time at home, why not make a Home Spa day (or days?). Make a footbath, put on a facemask, dry brush your body, use your gua sha and give yourself a face massage. Make your own body butter, or put on a hair mask. Take time for yourself and take good care of yourself during these times
Write down your Dreams & Goals
If you haven’t already started to write down your dreams and goals, why not use this time to get clear with yourself – what do I really want in life? What do I dream of? Dream big, as Noell says it “The Sky Isn’t your Limit, Your Mind is!” (I absolutely love this). For this practice you can also go and download my free printable PDF files where you can write down your Year & Quarterly Goals
Write Letters to Your Friends and Family
I got a letter the other day, an actual letter from one of my best friends and it was the best thing ever! I mean, how often do we get actual letters these days? Not that often anymore. Let those around you know that you love them and think about them by writing them a letter
Tea & FaceTime
Netflix & Chill might still be a thing, but the newest trend is “Tea & FaceTime”. Make yourself a cup of tea and make a FaceTime date with your best friends, or your family members, and just sit and talk and connect and have a good time. I’ve said it so many times during this lockdown that how fortunate are we to live in a time where we need to ‘social distance’ ourselves, but we have the technology to be able to connect all the time if we want to
Start an At-Home-Workout Routine
Again, thank you technology! When we can’t go to the gym, yoga study or wherever we usually go to, we’re so lucky that there are thousands of workout videos to find on Youtube or Instagram. You can find long Yoga session videos, or 20 minutes hard-core ab workout routines. So why not get into a good routine of moving your body!
Make a Visionboard
Use this time at home to dream and make yourself a vision board! You can either make a physical one, or you can create a vision board on Pinterest. Just find pictures of how you want to feel and be, and what you want to do! Seeing your dreams in visuals is one of the best things ever, and can really life your mood!
Journal about Your Thoughts – or Talk to a Friend
I know these times can be very anxious, and I’ve for sure felt that as well. You think about the state of the world, the economy, your job situation, you and your family’s health. There’s so much to think about and it’s easy to get caught up in worry and anxiety in these times. Know that there’s absolutely nothing wrong in feeling this way, and you should allow your emotions to be there and feel them – but a good suggestion is to get your fears and worries out of your head. Write them down in a journal, or call a friend and talk about things. Often times, all the things we build up in our heads aren’t as bad, when we just get them out of there
Watch Good Movies
Relax and rest, and put on a good movie. I mean Disney or Harry Potter marathon is completely allowed, so go for it! Make yourself a cup of tea, cuddle up under your duvet and just relax and enjoy it.
Make a Puzzle
Whether you’re an adult or have kids, making puzzles is the perfect activity! It’s such a relaxing and cozy activity to spend time on
Right alongside with playing a puzzle, if you have some games at home, then why not play those. Yatzy, Bagammon, Ludo, Uno etc.
What have you been doing during this quarantine? What has been your favourite way to spend your time? And what have you learned to appreciate even more because of this current situation? ✨
