Our nation has experienced an intense couple of weeks involving the CoronaVirus outbreak. Forced to stay inside and forcing social distancing. Tired of being quarantined? Running out of ideas? Are you wondering how to make the best out of quarantine and chilling without actually having company over? Check out these five ideas to inspire you during this epidemic and continue your social life.
Top 5 Ideas on Quarantined and Chill
Quarantine & Goals
Now that you have the extra time on your hands (some are even getting paid to sit at home) take this time to reflect on goals you have achieved and would like to achieve this year. Creating a vision board could be a great idea for those stuck in the house with nothing to do. A vision board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on your desired life goals, whether short or long. A board that displays images of things you want to be, want to do or have in your life. Print, write or draw images of your goals and place it on the wall during this crisis when you return to work, remove the display and place it out of sight and continue to work towards your goals. I can speak from experience that this has worked for me many times. Turn this into a friendly gathering and invite a few friends via facetime to connect and level up together.
Quarantine & Clean
With the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, cleaning is the best thing to do during this time. Welcoming in Spring, it’s time for some detailed cleaning. Cleaning can be a stress-reliever but with an 8-month-old daughter who loves to dump clean folded laundry out of the basket, you can easily lose the courage to clean. Take advantage of this time to do some spring cleaning. Sanitize and wipe down all hard surfaces with a disinfectant cleaner, disinfect all toys and blankets and keep all outing gear separate from in-house wear to prevent the transfer.
Quarantine & Chill
With over 50 more shows added in the past month, who doesn’t love to binge-watch a good series or even a new movie release? During this period of time, I found myself locked into the new series and movies being released. After a while, it started to get a little lonely. Not to fear, that is why Netflix and Chill is here! With the help of Netflix, movie night with your friends with just a click of a link!

Don’t be the friend that stays up just to complete the series or movies. Your rest is important. Especially if your always claiming your tired. GET SOME REST.
Quarantine & Photoshoot
Not everyday are you able to take all the time you need to dress up and look nice even if it is in the house or a quick run somewhere. Go into your closet, pull out your finest apparel, do your makeup, add the aftershave for men and take a picture. Get out your phone and begin your photoshoot. Take advantage of this time to make yourself feel good, invite a few friends over and have a photoshoot. Not sure what to wear during your shoot? Contact your friends via facetime and set up your color scheme.
Quarantine & Learn
Why not take advantage of this time to start learning the new language you’ve always wanted to speak but never had time for? I know, I know, you probably can not learn it in a week’s time, however; you can begin the process of picking up a new language. Learning little day by day and testing yourself by switching the languages can allow you to make self-quarantine worth it. A great app I enjoy using to learn Spanish is Duolingo. I have the app downloaded on my phone, making it easy to access whenever I feel like learning.
Languages Available to Learn
Invite your friends and kids to learn a new language together!
