Uncertain times have left many in distress about how they can have an enjoyable summer while keeping themselves and their families safe.
Since the best way to stay safe is quarantining, here are some ways to keep yourself busy at home.
Finding a new hobby is always a fantastic way to keep yourself busy! Some hobbies I have personally picked up include gardening, exercising, and painting.
Gardening is super easy and can help the environment. It is limitless, you can plant greens, fruits, veggies or just flowers!
Exercising is a great way to stay in shape and relieve the stress that these times can bring. Personally, running has helped me to wake up earlier and have more productive days.
At the beginning of quarantine, I bought some new paints to keep me entertained and that has helped me to create lots of creative artwork and new ways to express myself.
According to experts, there are ways to keep yourself and others safe to avoid catching COVID-19.
Wearing a mask is one of the best ways to prevent others and yourself from getting sick. It provides a barrier to protect yourself from outside germs and prevent the spreading of your own.
Staying six feet apart from people in public in addition to the masks will further protect you from exposure.
Avoid gathering in groups of more than 10 to 15; this minimizes your chances of spreading the virus or having it at all.
Lastly, wash your hands and sanitize often! Most soaps and hand sanitizers kill germs which leads to protection through secondary contact.
Although these times are not optimal for most, it is important to make the best of this situation and stay safe.
