Things to do at home if you're self-isolating
If like so many people across the globe right now you are having to self-isolating or spend more time at home, you may be wondering how you’re going to occupy so much of your time. You may be thinking that a few days on couch, catching up on your favourite box set sounds perfect, but in reality, this may become boring quite quickly and you’ll soon find that you need to do something more productive to keep yourself occupied.
While we may not have all the answers, we’re here to share some tips on how you can stay at home, stay positive, be productive and still be social during your self-isolation.
Time to Spring Clean!
Fancy yourself a Marie Kondo? Now is your time to shine! With so much free time ahead of you, it’s a perfect time to start sorting out your home. Clean out your make-up drawer, rearrange your furniture or clear out your wardrobe – you might get inspired and find some new outfit choices or rediscover an old favourite!
Home Work Out
Being stuck indoors doesn’t mean you have to miss out on exercise – personal trainers and gym enthusiasts across the world are live streaming their workouts on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to make sure we can all stay as healthy as possible during this crisis. And if you’re not into exercise, it’s the perfect time to try something new! A gentle exercise like yoga or palates is a great place to start. Exercise will also engage your endorphins, clear your head and put you in a more positive place.
It’s hard to imagine that things will get better, but recent news reports from China confirm that less and less cases are being reported each day, with many patients recovering from Coronavirus. It’s important to remain positive, so why not plan some fun trips for the future – the places you want to explore, the food you want to eat and the trips you want to take. Use Pinterest to create your dream holiday and when things are back to normal – book it!
If you’re finding cabin fever starting to set in, look no further than a living room Dance Party! This is especially great if you’ve got kids – put on their favourite Disney soundtrack and shake off all those negative vibes and let loose on the living room floor. If you live alone then we suggest putting on your favourite Whitney track and using your hairbrush as a mic – just make sure the neighbours can’t see you!
Make a Skype Date
We’re all struggling during this time, and while it’s hard to see things getting brighter, it’s important to remember that we’re all in this together. So most importantly, STAY IN TOUCH. We are lucky to live in a world with so many social media platforms, live streaming and Facetime calls, making it easier than ever to maintain contact without having to physically see someone. If you use Facetime or Skype, you can add numerous people to your call, so you can spend quality time with your family if you need it.
