It’s not all bad, being home, once you start realizing all the fulfilling and productive things to be done there. And we’re in it together! So I put together this list of fruitful and fun activities to do at home to spread the positivity around.
If anything can motivate us to learn how to play chess and truly appreciate it, it’s Netflix’s new series, The Queen’s Gambit. First, watch the show, then study the game if you don’t already know how to play. If that sounds too ambitious right one or don’t have anyone to practice with, try playing solitaire instead.
Bring Out Your Art Supplies
Whether you like working with clay (try your hand at a stop motion video!), water-coloring, or drawing, set up a little corner to start practicing art again. Crafting and getting creative is such a great way to get out of your head.
Work Your Way Through a Cookbook
If you’re someone who collects cookbooks but only ever really makes one of the recipes or you’ve never actually even made a recipe from them and simply use them as coffee table decor, this is the perfect opportunity to dive in. It’ll make cooking (and eating) so much more enjoyable. Plan out themed dinners to spice it up even more!
Learn a New Language
If you were pro in a foreign language in high school but have since lost your magic or you’re a first-timer, now is a good time to download a language app like Memrise or Duolingo and start practicing. Or, if you’re not interested in learning a new language, sign up for another kind of online class.
