Yesterday I wrote for those who are having to homeschool their kids for the first time. Today I want to give you a list of things you can do to stay occupied. I may have covered some of these in other posts, but it doesn’t hurt to reiterate. Right?
- Study your Bible and pray.
- Learn a new hobby: Crochet, sewing, knitting, etc can all be learned via YouTube and you can buy your supplies online
- Learn a language. I love Duolingo because it’s free
- Research your family history. FamilySearch.com is free, but I prefer Ancestry because it has an easier interface. That’s also where my DNA test is located. (This is also a good time to answer messages from cousins on DNA testing sites).
- Call family members/friends. Especially the elderly who may be feeling lost right now.
- Write a book. I discovered MyStory.today. It’s a website AND an app that you can use to write a novel. It’s amazing and FREE!
- Enjoy the great outdoors, even if it’s your own backyard.
- Start a blog. Seriously, this is so therapeutic! I love doing this (almost) every day
- Volunteer from home. We are looking for volunteers at The Silent Voices Project, but there are other nonprofits that will allow you to work from home as well.
- Read a book. There are a lot of free options on Google, Apple, and Amazon.
- Learn a new recipe and give it a try.
This is not an exhaustive list, obviously, but it’s a start. I’m sure that you can think of plenty more things to do without leaving home. So, what are you doing during quarantine?
