50 Things To Do During Self-Isolation

When people ask, ‘How are you?’ the average American almost instantly replies, ‘Busy!’ This constant state of business has led to increased stress levels; especially when accompanied with little to no breaks throughout the week.

While COVID-19 brings about a lot of uncertainty, at the very least it has provided a window of opportunity to take a collective break and reflect. Many people now find themselves ‘stuck’ at home with family, spouses, or by themselves. Why not use this as a time to ‘close your doors’ and go inside both physically and mentally? Look inward to determine your needs, do some soul work, and make room for humor as we give the world a chance to catch up.

So, here’s 50 things to do during self-isolation:
