Ahoy, mateys! I have extensive experience with being stuck at home. I would like to share my (unfortunate) expertise with you all, in hopes that these thirteen tips will help you stay content while homebound.
1.) read a book!
2.) create a collage
In addition to more traditional, paper-based collages, you can make sound collages. I learned about sound collages via Keri Smith. You basically make a list of all the sounds you hear within a minute.
3.) follow an exercise video
yoga, Pilates, aerobics? Whatever you'd like!
4.) write in a journal
If you do not have access to a bound journal, you can always write your entries on loose sheets of paper and bind them at a later time using staples or whatnot.
6.) comment on your favorite blogs
I love it when people comment on my blog, and I'm sure other bloggers do, too!
7.) try a new recipe
I recently made this yummy fruit salsa using a recipe from Gimme Some Oven.
8.) knit or crochet
You can learn to knit and/or crochet using free tutorials on YouTube or pay for a class on Bluprint.
9.) watch TV or a movie
I have been loving Anne with an E on NetFlix! If you do not have a TV, you can watch free content on YouTube or from Open Culture. I love watching yarn hauls, crochet vlogs, and more on YouTube. Try it!
There are many free coloring pages online, as long as you have a working printer. Grab some colored pencils and color your heart out!
11.) take an online class
Try Coursera, Udemy, Skillshare, or another online platform.
12.) write poetry or flash fiction
For an example of a flash fiction story, please see my post for The Bowl.
13.) make still-life photographs
Staging and taking still-life photographs is fun! Give it a try. This is an example of one of my still-life photographs, called Pain and Hope.
What are you looking forward to doing at home?
