This is the ultimate test of how resourceful you are when it comes to entertaining yourself. For many people right now, they’re not just entertaining themselves, but they’re also responsible for entertaining one or more kiddos too. You can burn through TV shows and video games pretty fast. Then what? It’s nice to have some pragmatic stay-at-home activities that don’t require any extra parts. We’ve already covered some options for virtual tours, and we’ve got some more pragmatic activities for you today. Here are 3 productive things you can do to entertain yourself and others while staying home.
Host Your Own Cooking Competition
Everyone has a favorite cooking show. Maybe it’s one where the competitors have limited or interesting ingredients. Using this approach, you can get rid of some of the deeper selections from your pantry. When else would you have time to find that random canned good and put it to use? You can make a friendly competition out of it with your family members, or each member of the family could be responsible for a different course. This will help you make sure you get the most out of the groceries you already have, while breathing a little life into the dinner-making process.
Practice a Little Feng Shui Around the House
With the normal pace of life, it can be difficult to make time for projects around the home. When you do have time, you tend to the important, priority items. You don’t always make time to do something like rearrange the furniture. If things have gotten stale inside, try moving the furniture around to a new orientation. It may totally open up the space and create a new energy. Is your current furniture arrangement taking full advantage of the natural light in the room? Does it make the room feel large or small? Now’s the time to take stock of these things.
Make Some Hard Decisions About Your Closet
This one might feel like a straight up chore, and depending on what the current state of your closet is, it might be. However, it’s important to take time to clean and sort the spaces that influence your daily life. Closet organization can make you feel relaxed, and it can help you get rid of what you don’t need. If you had to reduce the number of items in your closet right now by 50% — if you absolutely HAD to — you could. Start with 10% and see where that gets you. You may be surprised by how easy it is to let go of the things you don’t need.
