Thanks to the novel coronavirus, many of us are stuck in the house for the next few weeks. Social isolation is a hugely important tool in containing the virus spread, but it is, well, isolating. Here are some activities you can do during these strange quarantine times — everything is free, and some only require an internet connection. Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay occupied.
Take a fancy bath.
If you have a bathtub, enjoy a nice bath with scented candles, soothing music or a podcast on your smart speaker, essential oils, and a bath bomb. You don't even need all these things to enjoy a bath — just soak yourself and let your worries melt away.
Work out with YouTube exercise videos.
I'm not a doctor, but I wouldn't recommend going to the gym during this time. Besides, many of them are closed by state decrees already. Luckily, there's tons of free workout videos available on YouTube, ranging from aerobics, strength training, and cardio to niche activities like yoga and ballet workouts. Throw on your gym gear and get sweating in front of your TV.
