Sure, the first day is great – you hang out with your pets, lay around, eat your quarantine snacks, watch Netflix, and get a little work done – but as the days go on, you may find yourself looking for things to do to keep you from going stir-crazy. This is where we come in. Because, if Rapunzel can be stuck in a tower for 18 years in Tangled and entertain herself with activities from baking to candle-making, we can get through this.

Check out these 8 tips to keep yourself (and your family!) entertained during this time.

Go for a walk or run

Ever wonder how people get so into running? Well, now you can really find out. Maybe you never really explored your neighborhood or there’s a neat trail nearby that you never knew about. Whatever it is, get outside and get some fresh air. Just don't go in groups!

Bake something from Pinterest

If you’re anything like me, you have over 1,000 pins of desserts and sweets from Pinterest. So, why not try one? Many Pinterest recipes include ingredients you already have in your house!

Make a “quarantine playlist” and dance to it

Did someone say dance party? This is a time when you can truly dance like no one is watching! I’m talking the “Risky Business” sock slide into the living room kind of dance.

Play a board game

Think about taking a minute to put down all electronics and really get into a classic board game. Sorry, Balderdash, Catch Phrase, Cards, Monopoly, you name it!

Organize a room in your house

We all have that one room in our house that we’ve sworn we would organize and clean out. Well, I can’t think of a better time! Trust me, you’ll thank yourself later.

Try an at-home yoga class

Yoga really is one of the best ways to relieve stress. It helps you focus on your breathing while helping improve flexibility. And, the plus side is that there are tons of FREE yoga classes on YouTube that you can stream right to your TV!

Make a fort and watch a movie

Ah, the classic fort made of sheets and blankets. This one is easy! Grab those sheets and pillows, make some popcorn, pick a great movie, and you’re all set.

Go viral by making a quarantine TikTok

TikTok is the newest craze among young people. It includes making funny videos or dances to sounds and songs that live on the app. Maybe have your kids teach you a new dance? Who knows, you might go viral!

While the information on coronavirus (COVID-19) may be overwhelming, it’s important to remember the key facts:
  • Practice proper hand hygiene by washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds
  • Avoid gathering in groups
  • Know the symptoms – fever, cough, shortness of breath
  • Call your primary care provider if you suspect that you have any of the symptoms. Don't go straight to the hospital unless you're having a true medical emergency.
