50+ things to do when you're stuck at home
Hello my friends!
I hope y’all are staying safe and healthy during … these difficult times.
I wanted to write a blog post to – hopefully – cheer you up a little bit.
Because here we are, self-quarantining ourselves, or practicing social distancing and isolation, trying to figure out how to spend more time indoors.
As an introvert, this is pretty normal for me, I prefer to be at home and social distancing is kind of my vibe.
But I know that so many people don’t know how to deal with the free time on their hands.
I have already written two blog post about things we can do at home.
Hopefully this blog post will help you find even more ways to enjoy being at home.
Here are more than 50 things I like to do when i'm stuck at home, which to be honest is a lot of the time.
1. Clean your environment
Clean and decluttered environment will make you feel better. Also, open your windows for some fresh air!
2. Listen to music
Try to find uplifting tunes as music impacts greatly on how you feel.
3. Make your flowers happy
Give them nutrition and water them.
4. Learn something new
We have Skillshare subscription and I love it.
5. Binge watch Youtube
No, don’t do that.
6. Declutter your clothes
7. Catch up on studying
Just 30 minutes 2 or 3 times a day do wonders!
Are you feeling
Here are some tips and trick for you, from me. (Flowers to the right, chocolate to the left, please. Thank you.)
But don’t eat trash. Eat veggies, try new ones.
10. Organize the apps and photos on your phone and laptop
11. Play with your pet
12. Get your body moving with the help of a Youtube video
13. Cook something nice
Being in quarantine is not boring at all. I just don’t understand why did this rice package contain 8967 rice while the other had only 8856.
14. Bake bread
15. Self-care treatment is always a great solution in the times of boredom
16. Plan new outfits
17. Try a new hairstyle
Learn how to curl your hair.
18. Straighten your hair
19. Make a smoothie
Try new flavors.
20. Try to avoid online shopping
Order only necessities. Let home delivery available for those who really need it.
21. Paint your nails
Wash your hands and do a manicure first.
22. Get lost on Pinterest
23. Write a to-do list for later
24. Practice yoga and meditation
Try to think of NOthing – it is much harder than it sounds.
25. Declutter your skincare items.
Throw out all that expired.
26. Do your homework
27. Make a pumpkin spice latte at home
28. Search for tiny spiders in your room
and give them a name. What is their occupation? Believe me, not all of them are web designers.
29. Redecorate your room
30. Create a collage
31. Put on fairylights
32. Open a window and stare outside.
Sing. If your neighbors are as cool as the Italians, they will sing along. If they’ll hate you, sorry!
33. Do not even daydream about going to the cinema.
34. Binge watch Netflix
Watch a superhero movie. Scrubs is perfect.
35. Learn how to make flatlays
36. Make a short film
37. Play a board game
38. Dye your hair pink bc why not
39. Learn how to make aesthetic notes
My handwriting is awful. I can’t help it. But I try my best.
40. Try digital planning
Digital planning is much better for me with my ugly handwriting. But even if you are able to write beautifully, digital planning can be a new hobby for you.
41. Plan your next travels
My Mom promised me that after this pandemic, she will take me where my darts land on the map of Europe. We’ll have a 2-week trip behind the fridge.
42. Create wishlists
43. Create present lists for friends and family
44. Write a list of things you will do as soon as you get out
45. Do a try not to laugh challenge
There are a bunch of fail videos online.
46. Try TikTok
47. Make an interior design collage
Daydream about being able to afford West Elm.
Here are two of those collages that I made when I was bored last week:
48. Build a house from fries or waffles and eat them

Try to discuss life with her.
50. Take photos of your pets
51. Learn how to make a cat eye with eyeliner
52. Take polaroid pictures
and decorate your room with them

No. Don’t do that.

I hope y’all are taking care of yourselves
Practice good hygiene, wash your hands well, keep your hands away from your face (especially your eyes, nose, mouth), practice social distancing and try to stay at home as often as you can.
