In this video we discuss ten free or low cost activities you can do at home while we are dealing with the social distancing phase in response to the corona virus. But COVID-19 isn’t a requirement for these, you can do these activities all year round to fight off boredom and to keep yourself or your children entertained. Keeping yourself occupied and focused on other tasks will help fend off boredom and make you feel less impacted.
Take this opportunity to find new hobbies, reconnect with old friends or family members you haven’t spoken to in a while, and start living your best life.
NOTE: The links below are not paid endorsements, merely my recommendations. For the quick notes, here we go:
1: Exercise. Use body weight exercises like push-ups, sit-ups, lunges, squats, or go for a walk if you don’t have access to the gym. My recommended free app is Daily Workouts Fitness Trainer.
2: Read a book. No books? Check out archive.org for tons of free and public domain e-books. https://archive.org/details/books
3: Call someone! If you don’t have a phone or if long-distance still costs you money, check out google voice.
