It is a difficult time for everyone at the moment. Lots of people lost their jobs, some working from home. So, what to do at home?

  1. Sewing, if you know how and if you want to learn!
I was learning how to sew and now creating.

Now is a great opportunity to help, I sewing masks and you can do it. If you are not feeling like doing exactly this, there is plenty of stuff to sew, like some home decor, maybe you wanted to sew that nice skirt but did not have time. Now is the time to get busy!

2. Reading books.

Books can teach us many things and I love the idea of doing it. I admit I am not a fan of romance or detective, but I love to read something useful, like studying a new language, read psychology, readjust useful information which might help you in life. So, do not miss a chance to learn something new!

6. It is about time to start cooking at home.

If you used to eat out, it is time to learn how to cook or if you can, now you have time for this. It is time to be creative and try new recipes. Check my posts, you might find that what you would like to try. By the way, I think it is safer to make food ourselves.

If you live in the house and have a backyard, there is nothing wrong to have plants around. It is fun, healthy and just a nice view from the window. Yes, need to take care of it, but you got time. There is nothing better than your own fruits, vegetables, and herbs or just beautiful flowers.

I even started to grow lemon, mango, and avocado from seeds. I used an easy method, germination in a wet paper towel. After I planted my seeds in the flower pot.

10. Birding.

I am sure, it is not really necessary to go hiking for watching birds and taking pictures. We bought a few bird feeders, one is for hummingbird and I am sitting in front of the house, having my coffee and watching birds. It relaxes me really well, I enjoy my time.

11. Working on the house.

It is a great opportunity to fix the house, to paint the walls, to put tiles and many other things. You did not have time before and it is too expensive to hire contractors, so, if you know how to do it, start right now. Use your time in a smart way. In the end, you gonna be proud of your work.

  3. I would think one one would consider doing any of your quarantine suggestions on a normal basis at any time. Don’t wait for a crisis to have a productive hobby. Work less and play more.
