As we approach week three of “coronacation”, reality is beginning to set in. Many of my family’s traditions are being canceled or postponed in order to avoid large crowds. I have always been very family-centered, so not being able to see them is very hard on me.
Throughout these last few weeks, I have been doing my best to keep myself busy and occupied. I have created a daily schedule to make my life seem more normal.
In order to distract yourself from these things here is what you can do:
- Start a blog. Whether or not you want to make it public, starting a blog is a great way to talk about the things you are doing and how you are feeling during this unprecedented predicament.
- Upcycle some clothes. While scrolling through TikTok, I see people bleaching their jeans, cropping their shirts, or tye-dying old clothes. It is a great way to prepare for summer and keep yourself occupied.
- Do some yard work. However boring this sounds, it allows you to be productive and spend some time outside without coming in contact with others.
- Start working out. Personally, I have been trying to discipline myself into working out daily for months now and I have finally been able to commit to it because I have nothing better to do.
- Keep up with your schoolwork. Yes, it is hard doing this work not knowing whether you will ever get to turn it in, but the point is to keep the information fresh on your mind. Additionally, if your teacher assigns you new work that you do not understand, websites such as Khan Academy and Kuta Software are great resources.
- Keep your head up. I know this is a hard and trying time, but all of us are experiencing the same emotions during this. It is crucial that you do not let this bring you down. Keep living your life (just stay away from other people).
