I bet you never thought you’d find yourself in this situation. Secluded from friends and family, locked in your house. Left with nothing to do, getting the bare minimum of essentials or in many cases bulking up on things you don’t need.
Being home is an amazing thing but I get it, you want to be home till someone tells you that you can’t go out anymore.
This entire situation is unfortunate and I know everyone is bored out of their minds but there are so many ways you can keep yourself entertained. I know, you have homework. So do it, don’t be a couch potato, and get up. There are hundreds of YouTubers who have uploaded workouts you can do from home. Besides watching social media, how about you create the content instead?
Use FaceTime or Google Hangouts with your friends. Have pets? Bathe them, why not teach them new tricks. If you’re feeling lonely, cuddle them but if you don’t have a huggable pet then a pillow works roughly the same (if you don’t think about it).
Now’s the time to make bad hair decisions. Read a book and if you don’t have any, listen to free ones on YouTube or read a PDF. Family dance/karaoke party anyone? If they aren’t up for it, have a silent disco in your room.
Get to know the people in your household. Don’t like them? Then how’s the lamp doing? Revisit your childhood when times were good. Cool Math Games, Poptropica, Funbrain, all fun websites that you played on.
Get your life together and clean the house, sew fixable clothing back together, crop clothing, go crazy.
In all seriousness, make a schedule that works for you and get a proper amount of sleep. Everyone needs to stay home so hospitals don’t become overcrowded and supplies fall even shorter than they already are. We’ll have to stay in longer if people aren’t doing it so please do your part in keeping everyone safe and stay home.
