What to do at home during a pandemic


Social distancing is a big trend now thanks to how the COVID-19 outbreak shut down major business functions and gatherings in the United States. Here are some things to do while waiting around at home.

First, be sure to work on your homework. It’s good to stay caught up, even if the work can be made up later. Some teachers may also require you to check in at a certain time each day, so look for their announcements.

Then, try to take other online classes as well. If you’re interested in drawing, for example, there’s bound to be a class for that. Try to learn something new while you’re stuck in these boring times.

Don’t forget to leave offline time for yourself. It’s not good to be in front of a screen all day, even if you can’t go visit others physically. If you are able, try sitting out in your front porch or other outdoorsy area where you can get some fresh air.

With all the time that you are bound to have, work on those side projects you never seem to get done. If your mother keeps complaining about your disorganized room, take some time to organize it. If you need to do laundry after so many weeks, now is the best time.

In addition to catching up on things from the past, it is good to plan for the future. Utah had an earthquake on March 18, and with future earthquakes and natural disasters being possible, it is a great opportunity to work with your family members to be safe.

These are just some of many ideas that can help you avoid being too bored and from wanting to lash out on your family members.
