During times of uncertainty where social distancing is incredibly important, it can be hard to find ways to stay busy at home. So, we put together a list of 10 fun things to do in your own home.

1. Read a book

It’s important to take breaks from looking at your phone, TV, or computer screen. Reading can be a great way to unwind.

2. Clean and organize your home

Maybe your closet could use a bit tidying up? Taking the time to clean and/or organize a space will create a sense of harmony and productivity.

3. Start a DIY project

Pinterest is the perfect place to be inspired by at-home DIYs. It is also a place that can inspire new hobbies such as knitting, painting, and crafting.

4. Create a great playlist and dance to it

Listening to your favourite music and dancing to it will get you up and moving. Put it on while cleaning the house to make chores a bit more fun!

5. Do some at-home yoga

Yoga is a great exercise to do at home. Yoga is shown to decrease stress and it is great for your body. If you have never done yoga, head to YouTube for easy-to-follow yoga videos.

6. Use Netflix sharing to watch movies with friends without meeting up

Did you know that Netflix allows you to screen share with others so that you can watch a movie with friends without meeting up?  Click here to learn more on how to set it up.

7. Try out a new recipe

Tired of making your usual dinner? Try out a new recipe! You never know, it could become your next go-to meal.

8. Exercise

You don’t always have to go to the gym to get a good work out. Put on your workout gear and training shoes and do a few sets of jumping jacks, push-ups, burpees, crunches, and squats. You’ll be breaking a sweat in no time!

9. Learn a new language

There are some great apps out there that will help you learn a new language at home. Duolingo and Babbel are two of our favourites.

10. Call or facetime your friends and family

During these uncertain times, it is important to stay in close contact with loved ones. Call your friends and family instead of meeting up in person.
