7 Things To Do In Quarantine
Start A Journal
Journaling is really beneficial for the mind! Since quarantine began, I started a journal and have been writing in it ever since. When I was in school I didn’t really have the time, though now I update it day and night (or at least try to). You can write anything you like in it: problems, goals, gratitude or even keep it as a diary and update it with what’s going on in your life! Through beginning this practise I’ve learned many things about myself.
Begin A Blog Or YouTube Channel
Honestly, these hobbies take so much time! You will not be bored if you decide to do this. It’s really fun to have an online space with online friends, I’ve not met a single blogger who regrets it. Once you have your channel or website running, you may want to open a shop and try to make money from it!
Do Some Creative Writing
Try writing creatively! Whether you choose laptop or notebook doesn’t matter, either way I encourage you to write something imaginative. You might ambitiously decide on a novel, or something smaller like a poem. If you are a musician, you could even have a go at writing your own song! Things like this are abandoned in our busy lives, so make use of this extra time.
Create A Playlist
Making a playlist takes a lot of time, and it’s a very fun activity! I certainly don’t have time to make playlists doing school time, but I can make playlists for when I go back. You might decide on a playlist for different moods! I have one called ‘cry in happiness’ then another called ‘happy vibes’ and finally my ‘sad tunes’. Have fun doing this one!
Read A Book
Pick up a book and start reading it (or listening, whichever is most comfortable). During this difficult time I’ve been escaping to new worlds with my books, and spending too much time wrapped up in my duvet. However, it’s a productive use of time. It also means that you’re not on your phone and being away from social media is just what we need right now! Give it a go, and I’m sure you won’t regret it.
Play An Instrument
I’ve been using this extra time to do more cello practise and it’s benefited my musical brain so much! You may have a musical instrument in the house that you’ve never learned to play properly, or you might even be a musician (that’s so cool if you are). So make sure you’re practising, and just expand your brain a little bit. I am very fortunate to have a keyboard, though I don’t play it as much as I should!
Write Down All Of Your Goals
Getting a clear idea of what you want to achieve helps you better work towards it! I like writing it down on paper, though you may prefer making a dream board on Pinterest. Everyone has dreams spinning about in their head somewhere, and visualising it makes you understand better how to reach them. If you’re still wondering what on Earth I’m rambling about, search up the YouTuber Sadie Aldis. She creates loads of videos on this subject!
