There’s a chance that you’re feeling a bit bored or overwhelmed when you’re unable to do your usual outdoor activities and socialize. There’s no need to let the circumstances win. Get creative with our list of things to do at home. Hopefully, it will encourage you to come up with even more ways to turn your time inside into a more pleasant experience.
🧹 Clean the House
Alright, we know this one isn’t at the top of the fun things-to-do list for most people, but having a clean and organized space can help reduce stress. While you’re spending so much time inside, it’s the perfect opportunity to tackle those cleaning projects you’ve been putting off.
🏃♂️ Get Some Exercise
There’s a tendency to accept a decrease in physical activity as the norm when you’re spending so much time inside the house. It’s still important to stay active. Exercise can improve your mood and help you stay flexible. If you’re able to get up and move around, do so!
Here are some ideas for things to do at home to get some exercise.
- Exercise videos (there’s one below)
- Dance to favorite tunes
- Walking (use that back yard)
- Start a yoga routine
📚 Read a Book
When is the last time you sat down with a good book and let yourself explore a different world? With time inside the house at a premium, you can read all the books you’ve purchased and haven’t had a chance to read.

👩🍳 Learn to Cook
Always wanted to learn how to cook Korean dishes? Maybe you want to get in touch with your Irish heritage and learn some traditional dishes from Ireland. Even if you’re an accomplished cook right now, there may be dishes you’ve been wanting to try.
Of course, if you’ve never been great at cooking, this is your time to learn and shine! Check out some of Gordon Ramsay’s videos on basic cooking skills and move into his simple recipes. Look up videos from your favorite chef.
✍️ Start a Journal
We are living through times that will go down in history books. Don’t forget to write down your experiences, emotions, and what’s happening in the world. If you’ve never kept a journal, this is the perfect time to begin.
Writing not your style? Keep a file on your computer or use a voice recorder to express yourself. Another great way to record your experiences is through photographs. Keep a photo or video journal.
👭 Connect with Friends
Even though you’re spending more time inside, there’s no need to feel isolated from your friends or family members who you can’t visit. With the use of video chat through Facebook, Skype, or a phone app, you can stay connected and share the events of your day.
🎨 Learn Something New
Use this time to increase skills that will help you at work or pick up a new skill just for fun. Maybe you’ve always wanted to learn another language or how to apply makeup like a professional. Among the many things to do at home, learning something new could be the most beneficial in the long run!
