Fun Things to Do at Home During COVID-19 Quarantine
Welcome to the wild and wacky world of quarantine, where sweatpants are the new formal attire, and the living room doubles as a dance floor. While the outside world may be on pause, that doesn’t mean we can’t find ways to keep ourselves entertained and maintain our sanity. So, grab a quarantini (mocktail or cocktail, your choice) and get ready for a sassy and amusing guide on the most entertaining things to do at home during the COVID-19 quarantine!
1. Do (or at least attempt to do) D.I.Y. projects
Get your inner craftsman (or craftswoman) ready, because it’s time to unleash your creative genius! But remember, not all D.I.Y. projects are Pinterest-worthy. Brace yourself for sticky glue mishaps, wonky paint jobs, and the occasional tantrum over tangled thread. Hey, at least you’ll have a good story to tell.
2. Learn a new language
Bonjour, hola, konnichiwa! Impress your pet parrot and confuse your friends by becoming a polyglot in the comfort of your own home. Dust off those language learning apps, channel your inner linguistic genius, and prepare for conversations that may or may not involve nonsensical phrases, accent mishaps, and wild gestures. Who said quarantine can’t be a multilingual adventure?
3. Improve your immune system
It’s time to take your immune system from zero to superhero! Dive into the world of vitamins, superfoods, and wellness rituals that promise to keep the germs at bay. Embrace the joy of blending questionable concoctions, trying exotic supplements, and chanting immune-boosting mantras. Just remember, there’s a fine line between being health-conscious and becoming a full-fledged herbal witch doctor.
4. Create some art
Unleash your inner Picasso, Frida Kahlo, or Bob Ross! Grab those paintbrushes, sketchbooks, or even a bag of macaroni, and let your creative spirit soar. Embrace the freedom of self-expression, whether your art ends up resembling a masterpiece or a kindergartener’s finger-painting session. Remember, art is subjective, so let your imagination run wild and enjoy the process.
5. Stretch your muscles out with yoga or zumba
It’s time to turn your living room into a makeshift dance studio or yoga sanctuary. Join online classes, follow energetic instructors, and unleash your inner Shakira or Yogi Bear. Embrace the wobbles, laughs, and moments of uncoordinated brilliance as you shimmy, shake, and stretch your way to fitness. Who knows, you might even discover hidden talents as a breakdancing yogi!
6. Learn a new recipe (or even a cocktail)
Become a culinary master in your own kitchen kingdom! Explore new recipes, experiment with ingredients, and create mouthwatering dishes that will make Gordon Ramsay raise an eyebrow. And why not mix up a tantalizing cocktail to add a dash of glamour to your quarantine happy hours? Whether you end up with a culinary masterpiece or a burnt disaster, just remember to have fun and enjoy the culinary adventure.
7. Practice on that old instrument or learn a new one
Dust off your air guitar, trumpet, or that piano keyboard collecting dust under your bed. It’s time to channel your inner rockstar or maestro. Revisit those old tunes you used to strum, or start from scratch and learn a new instrument entirely. Warning: neighborhood cats and dogs might join you in a cacophonic symphony, but hey, who needs a quiet quarantine anyway?
8. Sport your inner Marie Kondo and tidy up your room (or at least your closet)
Embrace the “tidy house, tidy mind” philosophy and conquer the chaos in your living space. Channel your inner organizing guru and declutter like a champion. Rediscover long-forgotten treasures, reminisce over nostalgic photographs, and engage in heated debates with your closet about which clothes to keep and which to donate. Just be prepared for occasional distractions and sentimental trips down memory lane.
9. Invent something awesome
Let your creativity soar and channel your inner mad scientist! From wacky contraptions to quirky inventions, the possibilities are endless. Whether you end up with a brilliant breakthrough or a hilarious failure, the journey of inventing is bound to bring laughter and perhaps even a brilliant “Eureka!” moment. Who knows, you might just invent the next big thing from the comfort of your quarantine bubble.
10. Sleep. Lot’s of it.
Embrace the luxury of guilt-free snoozing and revel in the art of blissful slumber. Turn your bedroom into a sanctuary of dreams and surrender to the comfort of a cozy bed. Let the world wait while you catch up on all the sleep you’ve been missing. Remember, sleep is the ultimate act of self-care, and in these turbulent times, it’s perfectly okay to embrace the indulgence of a little extra shut-eye.
11. Press the red button.
Chances are you ran out of things to do, why not press the red button? Also known as the Bored Button, a website and also a whole different app that both have the same idea: someone literally clicks a home-screen button, when bored, to access random fun games online.
So there you have it—our guide to surviving quarantine. Remember to embrace the chaos, laugh at the mishaps, and find joy in the simple pleasures of quarantine life. It’s a unique time, so let’s make the most of it and create memories that we’ll someday look back on with a smile. Stay fabulous, stay sassy, and stay entertained!
