As the coronavirus pandemic continues, many of us find ourselves spending a lot of time at home. Even if you’re busy with work, school, or family, the time will come when you may feel bored and out of sorts. Below we’ve put together a list of tips and tricks to pass the time and stay sane at home in the quarantine.
All you need to do is sit or lay down and take a breath in for five counts, hold for three, and release for five counts. Meditating helps to ease your mind and makes you feel present within yourself. It also helps to relieve stress and process your thoughts in these chaotic times.
Between all of the lifestyle changes happening in the quarantine, developing a solid sleep schedule can keep your body and mood heathy and regulated. With all the time at home, now is the perfect time to curl up in bed to sleep, or even for an extra nap.
With all of the digital distractions, taking a moment to open a good book or write in your journal can do wonders for you. Not only is it good for your brain, but it can give you an escape and outlet for the daily stress.
As long as it isn’t too loud or won’t bother your neighbors, learning a new instrument can help your musical skills and give you a creative outlet. Choose an instrument that’s thoughtful to those around you, and learn from free tutorials online.
Never underestimate the stress relieving and mood boosting powers of sunlight and exercise. Walking is free, easy to do, easy on your joints, improves circulation, improves your mood, helps you lose weight, improves sleep, sharpens your brain, and lowers your risk of health concerns. There are really so many benefits to walking, it’s one of the best things to do, quarantine or not.
