50+ Things To Do When Staying At Home.

We’re all adjusting to a new norm right now.

It’s hard to know what to do for the best, and every single one of us is having to adjust our lives in some way. I’ve been wanting to continue to post, both in a selfish way as my own escapism from it all, but also for you guys to use as your own distraction too.

With everything that’s happening now, it’s the small, what once seemed like insignificant things that will be getting us through our days. It’s finding the little pockets of joy and being grateful for what we do have. Yes, we’re potentially feeling bored, lost and uncertain right now but I’m sure most of us are safe in our homes, and that alone is shifting my mind set and getting me through the day. If we’re able to stay at home, safe with heating and food in our fridges – we’re privileged! Another thing I want to say is that it’s ok to do NOTHING during this time, there’s enough pressure on us all as it is without the need to become an artist or learn to play a musical instrument. Basically, take it easy, be kind on yourself and do what feels manageable to you.

So, for those of us at home for the foreseeable future with quite a bit more time on our hands, here’s over 50 things we can do – whether we fancy being productive or lounging on the sofa I hope this gives you some inspo on what to watch, bake, eat or throw yourselves into over the next month (or so).

What you need to watch on TV

Who you need to watch on YouTube

Books to read

The best online fitness videos/ live workouts

The best recipes/ things to bake (can you tell this isn’t my strong point?)

When you’re feeling like you want to be productive 

Podcasts to listen to

Little thing to make the days feel better

When you need to escape boredom and feelings of uncertainty 

I hope this post isn’t too overwhelming. It’s not a tick list of things you have to do, but hopefully a bit of inspo while we’re all at home and trying to figure things out.

Stay safe x

    I’m currently learning Spanish through Duolingo and I absolutely love it! It’s definitely keeping my brain sharp and active! One thing that is getting through the isolation is knowing that there are so many things I can do around the house! x

    Love the list. Love is blind? YES. Yoga with Adriene? YES. Estee Lalonde? YES!
    The only thing I am missing is a mention to board games. I am only a bit embarrassed to admit we have played Monopoly once every day for the past week… oops!
