6 Activities to Enjoy While in Quarantine

As a new COVID-19 spike hits the Treasure Valley, it has led many people back into quarantine. While some are able to work from home, others are scratching their heads trying to figure out what to do with their time. Here’s a list of ways to find activities to do in quarantine.

1. DIY Projects:

All the untouched materials you have bought over the years hoping you’d get the chance to put together can now be used! Pinterest has thousands of inspirational ways to make small adjustments to your home or even add a pop of color to an area. If you don’t have materials, check out your local Woodcraft Boise– they offer same day shipping and love helping people learn the art of woodworking.

2. Organize:

Now that you’ve binged Marie Kondo and The Home Edit, it’s time to organize all the rooms you’ve been dying to. Why –– because now you have time. Say goodbye to items you no longer need and hello to Amazon Prime storage containers –– by the end of your quarantine, at least you’ll be organized.

3. Relax/Workout:

This may be the most important suggestion –– after all you are in quarantine for a reason. Take this time to be grateful for the things you have and this time to slow down in life. Many local fitness centers offer online classes that you can enjoy from home.

4. Watch a New Series:

Netflix, Hulu, DisneyPlus, and other streaming services have dozens of series/documentaries/movies that are being added. Now’s the time to watch everything that’s been sitting in your queue, but haven’t had the time.

5. Walk/Ride a Bike:

Although you want to avoid populated areas, the CDC does say it is safe to get fresh air, and let’s be honest it’s good for you. Ride a bike or go for a walk in your neighborhood –– get to know the area you’ve been living in.
