Are you tired of being self-quarantined? For those who are not an introvert, being quarantined can become challenging. Leaving your daily routine for two weeks, and after looking at the News outlet it honestly seems like everything is getting worse. You can easily lose the motivation to make each day enjoyable, and productive.
Learn how to take advantage and enjoy each day being quarantined by getting things done while self-quarantining.
What is “Self-Quarantine“? Self-quarantined is when you are staying in the house as much as possible and only come out if it is mandatory. Such as visiting a grocery store for an item, taking your dogs out and or going to work. Not because you want to go hang out with your friends. You don’t know who they are coming into contact with and vice versa.
This leads me to my next term, “Self-Obersavtion“. The reason for self-observation is to pay attention to your body and any changes such as a fever, chills, dry cough, difficulty breathing. Basically, if you KNOW that your body is feeling ill, STAY AT HOME AND ISOLATED FROM THE COMMUNITY TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS. Okay? Okay. Now that we got a clear understanding of what it means to be quarantined, let’s talk about how to enjoy it.
Please follow your state regulations and guidelines to prevent legal consequences for being out past a curfew or going out into the public when you are feeling ill. —A family in Missouri is being violated after their daughter presumptively tested positive for COVID-19.

Honestly, who doesn’t want to stay home from work and get paid due to an epidemic? Being an introvert, I can find many things to do while in the house because that is my comfort zone. However, for those who aren’t, enjoying a day between four-walls can be lonely and depressing. On top of that, you’re not getting paid during this crisis and your thoughts and loaded with how are you going to get through this challenge?
How To Enjoy Being Quarantined
Check On Family & Friends You Haven’t Spoken Too
During this time, checking on friends and family could pass time and allow you to catch up with those you have not spoken too in a while. Ensure that they’re ok during this crisis. Express your opinions about what’s going on time flies when you are having a good conversation.
Spring cleaning is here! It’s time to get rid of old furniture and decluttering your home.
Make Extra Income
Whether you believe or not people including myself buy a lot during times like this. That is why the government and major companies like Amazon and eBay have violations in place to prevent brands from taking advantage of the community during a crisis. People were buying all the tissue or hand sanitizer in their area and sell it online for a higher cost.
Don’t be that person!
Price your items at a reasonable price and low as you can go. You never know who out there needs what you’re sick and tired of looking at.

Quarantine & WorkOut
Since all gyms are closed due to the outbreak, it doesn’t stop the show! Pull out your weights and get to work. Don’t have any exercise equipment? No worries, using things around the house such as your couch armrest to do lunges, can help you to achieve your work out the day while social distancing. Want to spruce things up a bit? Facetime your friends and encourage them to join you in your work out.
Arts & Craft
Picking up a new hobby can help past the time of being quarantined. Not much of a painter no worries, who’s honestly going to see it during this epidemic anyways? Take the load off, pour you a nice glass of wine, light a candle, turn on some music and allow your mind to fill the blank canvas.
Grab a Seat Outdoors
Staying inside four walls all day can leave you drained and exhausted. Step outdoors for some fresh air can help to clear your cluttered mind and relax to be able to focus. Weather feeling good, grab a seat out on the porch, do some gardening or yard work.
Shopping does something to me, especially around these times. My favorite store is actually a new women store Myaamia that just launched this month with sexy trendy women’s apparel. Even if you can not actually afford it right now, window shopping has just got better. I call it screen shopping, not having an income can have your mind worried. Take the edge off temporarily by creating a wish list of things you would like when your income returns. Don’t lose hope 🙂
Launch the Business Idea
Be productive during this time and put some gas behind that business idea that has been in your head for months or even years. It’s time to put yourself first. Working and being quarantined can help you realize that you can actually be living this lifestyle daily. Start by creating a business plan, or take the time to brainstorm on some business ideas you would like to start.
Here are some places you can visit during this time…

There are many things to do during this time. Based on your personality and things you love to do, enjoy this time for yourself. A lot of us who work sun up to sun down just to make ends meet. While things may seem extremely chaotic right now, find your light at the end of the tunnel. This storm too shall pass. I pray for my country and every human that walks this earth, that the sick are healed and the lives as we know is restored. Enjoy your quarantine with your family and take this time to make valuable memories. We are currently in historical time, where things are happening that hasn’t happened in decades or never experienced at all.
