Things To Do at Home

Eight long weeks have passed since the Governor of Montana announced a lock-down in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. Thankfully, because there has been a decrease in positive new cases of coronavirus, Montana’s communities have been slowly and cautiously re-opening. Even though life is beginning to look “normal” in Montana, many places around the world are still under lock-down. If you find yourself still stuck in quarantine, here are a few ideas of how to spend your time at home.

#1 Learn a New Skill

With extra time on your hands, this is an excellent opportunity to try out something new. The internet is full of tutorials and “how-to” videos giving step by step instructions to acquiring a new skill. Whether it be learning a new language, learning how to paint, or learning how to dance, this is a fun activity to help pass the time and gain a skill along the way.

#2 Complete a Puzzle

Puzzles are excellent tools to challenge your mind and enhance your problem-solving skills. The other great thing about puzzles is that they come in all levels of difficulty. If you would like to start simple you could piece together a 100-piece jigsaw puzzle. If you want something more challenging and time consuming, try crafting together a 1,000 piece puzzle. If you aren’t a fan of jigsaw puzzles there are a bunch of other great puzzles to pass the time, such as sudoku, crossword puzzles, etc.

#3 Read a Book 

If you’re anything like me, you probably have a stack of books that you’ve never read which are now beginning to collect dust. Maybe you’ve received a book as a gift from a family member, or you’ve been recommended a book by a close friend. Now is an excellent opportunity to take 15 or 30 minutes a day to start working through a book you’ve been wanting to read but just couldn’t find the time.

#4 Write a Letter 

In a world characterized by text messages, emails, snapchats, and tweets, it is not very common to receive hand-written letters. This form of communication can be a very special way to stay in touch with family and friends. Sitting down to write a well thought out hand-written letter can be a very uplifting encouragement to the person who receives it.

Be Creative

There are many other things you could be doing to utilize your free time at home such as cooking a new recipe, learning an instrument, exercising, or cleaning and organizing. I encourage you to be creative and try out some new things to make the most out of your time at home!
