Stay-at-home and shelter-in-place orders have many families bored while quarantined and stuck at home. Here are some fun things to do to help stay sane.
During this global pandemic, many people are stuck at home quarantined, looking for things to do. Reports continue, entire towns, cities, states and even countries are shutting down. Stay-at-home and shelter-in-place orders are happening across the globe. From closing schools, shopping centers, movie theaters, and entertainment facilities, even Disney has shut down its theme parks and most resorts.
Individuals and families are self-quarantined and stuck indoors everywhere. This is a great way to stay safe, however, it’s important we keep ourselves active and entertained.

Blast Music and Dance!
We mean it! Dancing is a stress reliever. In fact, dancing “releases the neurotransmitter, endorphins (also called happy hormones), which serve to reduce stress and cause our bodies to feel calm, happy and optimistic” say’s Dr. Mahtab Jafari in his post entitled “Dance to De-Stress”.

Read a Good Book or Ebook.
Now that you have released all those endorphins, grab a good book. Reading is a healthy way to get away for a bit without leaving your home and is always a good thing to do. Reading can even lower your heart rate and ease the tension in your muscles.
I have always found it hard to pick up a book and get started, but once I do, I’m always glad I did. Allowing your body to relax and your brain to indulge can be so rewarding.
Here’s another good suggestion, if you are in need some good reading material Get a Free Month of Kindle Unlimited with access to over 1 million ebooks Here’s the link Click Here

Play a Board Game!
Now, this ones a good thing to do for families or roommates who are good at staying clean. We wouldn’t invite Dirty Danny or Touchy Trevor from down the street, that kid touches everything! Playing a board game is a great way to make being board while stuck at home quarantined a lot more fun!
Scrabble, Risk, Monopoly, all great choices for indoor fun. For some nostalgia, we’ve been playing D&D, otherwise known as Dungeons & Dragons for you non-80s nerds reading this. D&D is a fantasy tabletop role-playing game and can be a tone of fun. It’s the game the kids like to play on Stranger Things.
Here are some more things to do during shelter-in-place orders at home quarantine!
Watch a Movie or better yet a cool new Series!
Thank God for streaming services! They can save the day when you are stuck at home. I wish we had these growing up. The new releases were always the first to go at our local Blockbuster. Now, they are always available and at your fingertips any time of day.
Our all-time favorite is now The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which received 8 major nominations in 2019, winning 4 awards. We also all agree the new series The Boys is the Best Superhero series to date, or should I say anti-superheros?
Here’s one we bet you never heard of, Transparent. It follows the goings-on of a dysfunctional Los Angeles family and is 90% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.
Get in an at-home workout!
Stay mobile, stay fit, stay healthy. There is never a time where working out is not a good thing to do. Don’t let the Gym being closed or being stuck at home quarantined be an excuse to not Exercise! The center of a good health regiment is exercise. Did you know working out boosts your immune system?
It’s super easy to get in a workout at home. You can just jump on YouTube and follow along to some video aerobics class, try HIIT or Kickboxing on for size or lift some weights.
There are plenty of options out there and they’re all good for you during your, let’s just call it a “staycation”, instead of a lockdown or quarantine, now that we’re having a bit of fun.
