🧹 Clean the House
Sure, this isn’t on the top of anyone’s list of fun things to do at home, but we think it’s beneficial to have an environment that is clean and organized. Having space you’re spending so much time in clean and orderly can reduce stress, and we think that is well worth the time. Besides, it’s the perfect time to tackle those household chores you’ve been putting off.
🏃♂️ Get Some Exercise
Sure, it’s easier to chill all day and watch your favorite television shows, but getting some exercise increases endorphins that can make you feel better. It’s important to stay as active as you comfortably can at this time.
Here are some of our favorite ideas for getting some exercise at home.
- Exercise videos
- Dance to favorite tunes
- Walking (use that back yard)
- Yoga (see video below)

Don’t like to write? Keep a file on your computer or use a voice recorder to express yourself. Another great way to record your experiences is through photographs. Keep a photo or video journal.
