Happy Tuesday friends,

hopefully you had a good start into the new week. It is day 11 in home quarantine over here and we are still in a good mood. There are lots of things you can do to distract yourself for most of the day, at least for us. Maybe it is easy to say for me cause we don´t have any kids in the house yet (waiting on baby girl to make here appearance but she for sure is taking her sweet time) but it is still a ton of time to pass without having the opportunity to go anywhere than on a walk.
I wanted to share some activities which we included in our daily schedule so time will pass a little quicker or at all.
What to do at home…
1 // Read – Now is finally the time to dust of all the books in your shelves and finally start reading them or get some off from amazon. I always have a bunch on my wishlist I plan on purchasing from other reviews.
2 // Watch Netflix – The time probably won´t come again were it is acceptable to binge watch for days. There are tons of great shows on Netflix. I have done two round-ups you can read for inspo here and here.
3 // Make a puzzle – We got a 1000 piece puzzle and believe me this task is going to occupy a lot of your time and it is super calming. It has been years since I have done a puzzle and I have to admit I love it.
4 // Play board games – A great way to pass time and interact with your partner but I would only recommend if you aren´t highly competitive cause you at least have to stay inside for another two weeks.
5 // Organize your house – Not everyone´s favorite but definitley one over here. Amazon still ships so you can get all the container or inserts you would need to organize certain rooms/categories in your home like the pantry, your jewelry or beauty corner.
6 // Do online workout classes – Many gyms or/and even dance studios offer online workout classes or dancing lessons. A fun alternative to sporting outdoors and also spend productive time with your significant other.
7 // Take daily walks – If you are still allowed to do so this is a task which should be done everyday. Getting in fresh air, movements and sunshine is super healthy for your body and mind which is really important at the moment.
8 // Try out new recipes- Definitely another reason for a daily number 7 cause with all that time on hand I have never tried out more different recipes than these days. I already made these delicious flourless peanut butter cookies from The Lemon Blonde and a Dutch Baby (an oven baked pancake) twice.
9 // Do your taxes – If you should get super bored despite all of the activities you can still do your taxes for last year.
I hope you are all staying healthy and as much home as possible so far. It is a difficult and strange time but it will also pass like so many others did before and we hopefully come out smarter and more resilient than before.
