Running out of self-care activities to do while quarantined at home?
Here are some ideas...
Start a new book.
Is there a book you've been meaning to start? What about a topic you want to learn more about? Now is a great time to start a book you maybe otherwise wouldn't have found the time to read...
YouTube and various phone apps have different guided meditations. Why guided? They'll give you a new way to refocus your mind and help you to ignore distractions.
Play with a Pet.
As much as I love my pets, I sometimes forget to play fetch with them or watch them go crazy on catnip. Making time to play with pets is a great way to boost your mood and create a stronger bond with them.
Get some manicure tools online and start doing your own manicures. I've gotten a lot better at doing my nails in quarantine and it saves me a TON of money...
Learn a new recipe.
Have a family recipe that you've never made on your own? Missing a certain dish from your favorite restaurant? Try learning how to cook some of your favorites.
Unplug for a day.
Put your phone away and out of sight for a day. If you have family that likes to talk daily, let them know you'll be offline (trust me..). It feels great to take a break from the news, especially nowadays.
Teach yourself a new skill.
Whether it's cutting hair, baking, learning an instrument, whatever. Learn something you've always wanted to try but haven't had time for before.
