The COVID-19 pandemic has caused millions of people around the globe to practice social distancing and self quarantine. Many face hourly reductions, unemployment, and complete company shutdowns. There are
many ways you can spend your time in quarantine. Are you bored of staying at home and watching TV everyday? Here are 6 things you can do to stay busy while practicing social distancing.
1) Explore the outdoors
State parks are a great way to get outside and exercise when the majority of the fitness centers remain closed. Doctors have suggested that spending time outdoors is not only good for your physical health but also for your mental health. Visit your state’s website to find your nearest state park.
2) Learn to play a musical instrument
Have an old instrument laying around? Now is a great time to learn how to play it. There are several websites that have free music lessons that you can take at home because of COVID-19. Hamilton Bank Arkell’s are live streaming free guitar lessons everyday to encourage social distancing. For some this can be the time to discover a musical passion they never knew existed.
3) Go star-gazing
If you live in a congested city area where light emissions affect your view, simply just get yourself out of the city you live in to a place where you can observe the night sky. Whether you are using a telescope or just sitting outside on a calm clear night, now might be your chance to gaze upon the night sky. Look out for meteor showers, shooting stars, and other celestial activity.
4) Experiment with new cooking recipes
Oftentimes we get in the routine of preparing and eating the same meals on a weekly basis. Take this time to learn a new recipe to sharpen your cooking skills.

5) Stream live music
As more cancelations of concerts, festivals, and performances take place due to coronavirus, musicians from all over the world are using social media to play live for their fans. Jimmy Buffet for example is streaming live on Margaritaville TV. However, most of these performances will take place on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube.
6) Learn how to fly an airplane
Why stay 6 feet apart when you can be 6,000 feet apart? Learning how to fly an airplane has a variety of benefits including character building, leadership, and self confidence. And, you’ll even be able to fly somewhere if your airline cancels its route due to the coronavirus. Flying has amazing advantages such as leisure travel, business travel, a career, or just a hobby.
