Okay ladies, by now I think we may all be getting a little stir-crazy, especially if you’re someone who likes to be outside and stay active. To help combat boredom and make the most of your time under quarantine, here are 5 things to keep you busy.

Read, read, read.

One of the things I really enjoy is a good book but between work, kids, cooking and cleaning (the list goes on), it’s hard to find time to fit it in. Now that some of us have a bit more free time, reading is a good way to sit back, relax and drift off into a different world. Some books our staff recommends are:

Organize!

This is something I think we all want to make some time for, whether it’s cleaning out the kitchen cabinets or your bedroom closet. Now is the perfect time to go through the kitchen and get rid of those spaghetti stained Tupperware bowls or those clothes that we haven’t worn in years.

Work on you.

No matter where you’re at in life, we all probably have something we want to work on personally. During this downtime, take some time every day to reflect on your goals and what you want to accomplish this year. To get some inspiration, we recommend checking out TedTalks, trying out some yoga and meditation or journaling.

Keep up the exercise.

Being stuck at home can sometimes mean that we are a bit more lax when it comes to our health and wellbeing. Our team recommends at least 30 minutes of exercise several times a week to keep your activity level up. Whether you go for a walk or run around the neighborhood, or pop on some workout videos and follow along, it’s important to continue exercising and maintaining good eating habits.

Explore ways to give back (eh hem, did someone say clinical trials?).

This is an unprecedented time in our history and the need for clinical trials is a hot topic right now during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Volunteering for local trials in your area is a way to give back to not only your community, but to those around the globe. Without clinical trials, the opportunity to advance medicine and find treatments and preventative medications would not be possible. Find out how you can help today by clicking here.
