Video: 5 Things to Do While Social Distancing

Last Updated: Mar 27, 2020

As we head into another week of social distancing, you may start feeling bored, isolated, and stressed. We’re all feeling the coronavirus blues, but student vlogger Janna wants to give us a burst of energy, positivity, and motivation to continue living our best lives with her top five favorite things to do at home. Watch her video below and let us know if you’ve tried any of these great activities!  

1. Read or watch TV

Start a new book you’ve been dying to read or binge-watch a new show on Netflix—whichever is your cup of tea.

2. Write thank-you notes

This is beneficial to whoever you’re writing to but also for yourself. It’s therapeutic to practice gratitude and remembering people to be thankful for.

3. Cook

Even if you’ve never cooked before, now is your chance to learn. Give it a try: look up recipes on YouTube (shout out to College Cooking!), Pinterest, or Google and try them out for your family! 

4. Spring cleaning

Get rid of anything that doesn’t serve you: clothes you don’t wear, books you don’t read, items you don’t use. Then donate them to people who’ll appreciate it. Cleaning your house is a good way to organize your life and give back.

5. Self-care

When are you ever going to have this much time to focus on you? Pick up a hobby you put on the back burner. Treat yourself to a facial and a long bath. Do something that makes you happy and reminds you of the positive things in life.
