I really hope you guys are safe and staying home. These are some challenging times for everyone but I am sure that we will make it and come out of it even stronger.

Staying at home is always a good idea if you want to recharge your batteries. Moreover, it has many advantages. Apart from the fact that you can put a lot of things in order, you also save money, since most of your activities do not require any expenses.

On the other hand, being stuck at home for a long period of time though can be very boring at times.  Especially for extroverts. There are only so many things to do and eventually, you will run out of ideas.

    There are some great suggestions on this list. I have to admit I’ve most of my energy has been geared towards adapting to our new normal, change is exhausting so I’ve tried not to do too much!

    These are wonderful ideas to do during this quarantine period. I think I was able to do at least 8 on your list.
    Been spending a lot of time with Korean TV series on Netflix and I am on my 5th series. 🙂

    1. Catherine May 12, 2020 at 3:17 PM

      Thanks. I watch Netflix almost every day haha!

  8. Joan May 12, 2020 at 12:35 PM

    These are all great tips. I gave up on organizing since the kids think I need a toy on every floor around the house. Also, my 2-year-old has decided I am not allowed to use MY laptop any time of day until he is asleep so I think it’s onto another activity until this all eases up.

      Thanks for your feedback. I appreciate it!
