We’re doing so much better than we were this time last year as a country. 2020 and half of 2021 were full of record-breaking COVID-19 cases. Now, vaccinations have dramatically lowered these numbers. Although the virus has become less widespread, many people are still getting sick. By now, we know that if you contract the virus, you must stay away from other people. If this is the case for you, read about these creative ways to spend your time in self-isolation. You can still be productive from home!
Learn a New Skill
Quarantine is the prime opportunity to develop a new skill. What’s something you’ve been dying to do but have never gotten the chance? Perhaps it’s cooking; learn some new recipes that you can enjoy at home. Consider learning a new language to impress all your friends and family. You can use this new skill to make worldwide travel easier. You can also polish your communication/reactive skills, so you don’t need to extemporize anymore.
Tackle Projects at Home
We all put off projects around the house in favor of other activities. Well, isolation is the perfect time to get around to what you’ve been avoiding. Think about putting a fresh coat of paint on the walls to cover up unwanted marks. Another thought is to complete some home tile projects you’ve never had the energy to do. When you finish whatever job you decide to do, you’ll be proud of what you accomplished.
Virtually Reconnect With People
Another creative way to spend your time in self-isolation is to virtually reconnect with loved ones. Again, we pack our schedules, leaving less time for things we want to do. If you haven’t checked in on people in a while, use this time by yourself to do so. Download Zoom and get your snacks ready. The best part about things being virtual is you don’t have to get dressed up to socialize!
