10 Tips for Time on Your Hands at Home

10 Tips for Time on Your Hands at Home

We are all spending more time at home than usual right now during the ongoing health crisis and with time on our hands, we need to think of ways to occupy ourselves. Here are 10 top tips to keep you entertained.

1. A fun, home DIY project

DIY doesn’t have to be a chore— Why not try your hand at making a rope ottoman. An old tire, some manila rope, and a few tools will have you sitting pretty all summer! Check out our blog here for a how to!

2. At-home movie nights

From Netflix to the Play Store, there are so many options to stream movies at home now! Make some popcorn and dim the lights to turn your den, living room or basement into a home movie theatre. Have fun and make each movie night a different theme like “scary movies,” “rom com’s,” “Thrillers” or “animated classics!”

3. Reading challenge

Take a break from the computer, phone or tablet and pick up that book you’ve been meaning to read! Challenge yourself to read something out of your preferred genre, or maybe try to finish a book a week. This is a great way to de-stress and escape from the current, stressful climate.

4. Exercise

Keep your body and immune system strong by doing some home exercise. Your gym may be closed right now, but that doesn’t mean you should slack on your fitness routine! There are thousands of fitness tutorials online ranging from yoga to weight training, that you can follow along with from the comfort of your home.

5. Catch up with loved ones

Physical distancing doesn’t mean we have to stop communicating. Whether it’s through social media, an email or phone call, reach out to friends and family to ask them how they’re doing, have a laugh, or simply catch up.

6. The Friday Food Crawl

With delivery apps a plenty, you don’t have to miss out on your favorite restaurants! Most eateries are offering delivery options now. Look up local restaurants in your neighborhood and make an order! Make it a fun Friday night event with different themes like “Pasta” or “Fish & Chips”

7. Spring cleaning

You know it has to be done, so why not start now? Use this time to clear out your closet, give your kitchen a long-needed deep clean and any other tidying up you’ve been putting off over the last few months. You’ll have a great sense of satisfaction once it’s done and out of the way!

8. Game on!

It’s always a good idea to take a break from the technology once in a while. Board games, card games and puzzles are a great way to have some tech-free fun and bond with family. There are so many different board games on the market and the good thing is, you can order them online.

9. Learn something

Take some time to learn something new while you’re at home! Dust off that camera sitting in your garage, hone your cooking skills, or even take an online class in a subject you’re interested in. Sites like Skillshare, Coursera and even YouTube offer thousands of virtual tutorials and classes to help you learn something new.

10. Pamper yourself—Ladies and Gents

Turn your home into a personal spa paradise! Kick back and do a face mask, manicure, soak your feet, or even get your partner to give you a romantic back massage. Just because your favorite salon or spa is closed, it doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in some relaxing self-care.
