It doesn’t matter if you’re in the United States, Canada, Europe, or South America, the coronavirus pandemic, also referred to as COVID-19 has probably upended your normal routine and disrupted your daily life in one way or another. With developments regarding the virus changing by the minute, many of us are left in mandatory quarantine by our governments or in voluntary self-isolation to assist as much as possible in limiting the spread. Either way, many people around the world are confined to the safety of their homes, but that doesn’t mean you have to go crazy with boredom. If you were wondering what to do in coronavirus quarantine, these are just a few fun ideas to stay sane and pass the time.

Right now most people are feeling stressed and are very worried about the future. A simple Skype call or Facetime can brighten up someone’s day and take their mind off of the coronavirus, even if just for a few minutes. Now is the time to reach out to your grandparents who live alone or that distant aunt who you haven’t seen in years. With the risk of contagion limiting direct interactions, socializing has now taken on a whole new meaning. Many people are setting up virtual hangouts with multiple friends at a time so you can play games together, do yoga, show off your fur babies, celebrate a birthday, or even have a virtual dance party while stuck at home in quarantine. This last one can be really fun while high or not, it’s really up to you.

Over a quarter of American adults have not read a book or listened to an audiobook within the past year. Instead of reaching for the T.V. remote as usual, why not give Netflix a rest and download an e-book or audiobook.
