10 things to do during at home during the lockdown

The quick development of the COVID-19 situation forced countries around the world to initiate relevant safety measures. Many of us are facing lockdowns and quarantines – being stuck at home proves to quickly turn into a challenge. Watching Netflix might seem like a fun past time but it also gets dull, no point in denying that. We have 10 suggestions for activities that can brighten up your quarantine time and keep you entertained for a while.


  1. Keep learning

Being stuck at home doesn’t mean we should stop our brains from working. There are tons of online courses no matter what you are interested in – keep learning new things, developing current skills, and educating yourself on relevant global issues.

  1. Find a new hobby

Ever thought about trying something new but you never had time for it? Start a blog, trying drawing with different mediums, solving puzzles, knitting – the list is endless, get creative.

  1. Family time

Spend time with family – at home or digitally. Catch up on life and future plans, play games to reconnect, watch a movie.

  1. Declutter and donate

Perfect time to go through your wardrobe and other belongings – take the things you rarely use or things other people will appreciate more and donate them. Clean some space in your home and make someone else happy at the same time.

  1. Reflect and redefine

Take time to reflect on your life – are you happy? Are you on the right path? Identify your own strength and weaknesses and think about big or small changes that can make your life better.

  1. Learn a new language

Want to practice a foreign language or get the basics of a new one – download Duolingo and start learning

  1. Give your room a makeover

Being at the same place for a long time gets boring and frustrating – rearrange the furniture in your room, put up some posters, and enjoy discovering forgotten gems while cleaning.

  1. Stay in shape

The gym might be closed but this doesn’t mean you cannot work out. Stays physically active with at least 30 minutes of exercise a day.

  1. Make progress on your to-be-read pile

There are probably some books you have been stacking with the plan to read as soon as possible. Well, now is the time.

  1. Don’t forget to be human

Many people need help and support during those difficult times, especially elderly people. Remember we need to be united and help each other more than ever – give a helping hand with groceries to your neighbours if they need it.


A structured gap year can be just what you need.
