With the country still in the middle of an enhanced community quarantine, you probably think you’ve exhausted everything there is to do inside your homes… or maybe not. 

For those who are still looking for more activities to do during this time, here are a couple more you should try out. 

  1. Clear out your wardrobe
    If you haven’t Marie Kondo-ed your wardrobe yet, then maybe this is the time to fo so. Dedicate your newfound time and attention to sorting out your clothes, declutter your home, remove items you haven’t worn for 12 months, and co-ordinating clothes into sections so it’s easier to browse in the mornings. It’s a great opportunity to get inspired by new outfits or rediscover an old favorite.

  2. Read a book
    It’s time to read that book that’s been sat on your shelf for the last few months. Get inspired by a best-selling novel, indulge in a celeb-approved book, or escape to a different world for a few hours. Instead of wasting the day looking at your social media, enrich your mind with a book. 

  3. Catch up on some old and new TV Shows
    Now’s the time to catch up on all that TV you’ve been curious about, so get comfy and get ready to commit hours of your life to watch someone else’s dramas, or just indulge in some Korean variety shows for something light and fun. 

  4. Finish a huge puzzle
    Looking for something a bit more challenging? Put your brain to the test and do a humungous puzzle or do a Sudoku puzzle and see how far you can get.

    You may not have a lot of recent travel photos on your phone but we’re sure that you have countless selfies and even photos of your lockdown meals that’s worth backing up. You know, for memories.

  2. Plant some flowers
    Introduce some welcome color into your house or garden and plant some flowers.

  3. Learn to bake
    Indulge your sweet tooth and try to learn how to bake. You can start small and with simple recipes. You can even start with the ones found on Tiktok so you won’t be as pressured. 

  4. Learn how to knit
    Pick up your needles and take the time to hone a new skill like knitting. Not just for grandmas, knitting is considered incredibly therapeutic and practical.

  5. Dance it out
    Clubs and bars may still be closed but it doesn’t mean you can’t dance on your own. Blast out some of your favorite tunes and get dancing in your bedroom, living room, or bathroom. Hairbrush microphone optional.

  1. Exercise
    Replace your gym visit with an at-home workout, with squats, burpees, and press-ups all achievable without equipment. Transform your lounge into a yoga space and stretch it out.

  2. Make a travel bucket list
    The time where we can all travel again is just right around the corner. Write down a list of places you want to visit as soon as this is all over. 

  3. Learn a language
    Challenge yourself to learn a new language in just a few weeks, ready for your next trip away. With a ton of apps and websites that give you lessons for free, you’ve truly run out of excuses not to.

  4. Make some music
    If you play an instrument, now is the perfect time to improve your skills. If you don’t, you could learn completely from scratch. There are plenty of free online tutorials and Youtube videos you can learn from.

Not only will you be helping out for a good cause; you will gain so much valuable experience at the same time.

  1. Start that skincare routine
    It’s easy to be lazy especially if you’re mindset is at “not going anywhere soon”. Change that way of thinking and start taking care of your skin and face at this instant. 

Just when you think there’s nothing else you can do during this time. Think again. This is the time to get creative and to let your imagination run wild and free… But of course, at the safety of your homes.
