Well, here we are still dealing with the pandemic. Remember when it first beset us it was called the “Novel” Corona Virus. It certainly isn’t novel anymore! Most people are staying home more because of the virus which is smart, but perhaps it’s getting a little boring.
Some people have used their time at home to bake bread, read, do some DYI projects or binge watch favorite shows. How is that going these days? Are you ready for something new and different to do while waiting for the promised vaccinations to arrive and start working?
USA Today has an online article called, “100 Things to Do While Stuck Inside During a Pandemic”. There are good suggestions for things to do during this time which you really might want to try, but it is also quite humorous! I really enjoyed reading through the whole list. Here are just a few of the things you could do according USA Today.
- If it won’t bother your neighbors, dust off that old instrument and practice.
- Put together the most beautiful charcuterie board possible, but you can only use foods you already have in your fridge or pantry.
- Put on a soap opera, mute the sound and make up your own dialogue.
- Look at yourself in the mirror and attempt a self-portrait with pencil and paper.
- Make a list of things for which you are grateful.
- Get into baking with “The Great British Baking Show” using only the ingredients you have on hand that you didn’t use in your charcuterie board.
- Dye your hair a new color – who is going to see it anyway?
- Order and put together IKEA furniture. Time yourself.
- Attempt things using your non-dominant hand from writing to brushing your teeth.
- Study the art of beatboxing.
