With the way things have drastically changed in the past few months, quarantine has become our new normal. After speaking to many people about their quarantine experience, I identified a common trend: the lack of structure people used to have in their lives. While things around us are changing so rapidly, perhaps it’s time we adapt and implement some changes in our lifestyles.

Here are some of the things that I have turned towards to keep myself sane while quarantined:

Spend more quality time with family

Facetime friends

Go for walks/hikes

Read books

Watch TV/netflix/movies

Pick up a new hobby that has been long impending

Do a nice home workout

Clean out the house

Do some garden work outdoors

Learn about any topics you have been fascinated by

Pick up some unfinished creative projects or start something new

Write everyday! (perhaps a journal) 

Try cooking/baking 


Take in some nature and sunlight

Meditation and yoga

Listen to music

Plan stuff for the future

These are just a few of the many things that we can incorporate into our schedules to keep ourselves busy! There are an endless amount of other activities that vary person by person to get involved with. Remember, it is okay to feel lost as we take a break from our routine lives. There is no need to beat yourself up for not being as productive as you were before. Being amidst this global pandemic, it’s a tough change for us all. Be kind to yourself and do what makes you feel happy and healthy!
