How to not get bored at home during social distancing

Social distancing is considered as one of the most effective ways to prevent the spreading of COVID-19. Whether you are in Asia, Europe, America, Australia or Africa, you need to take on the social distancing to end this pandemic. Many schools suspended. Cities are on lockdown. You may be bored and unmotivated at home after cancelling all plans. Come on, it’s not the end of the world. Instead of dwelling on the negative, why not try to make the most of this time? You can simply turn yourself into couch potato mode by binge-watching dramas or and TikTok videos, but trust me, there are so many things you can do during quarantine time. It’s time to get productive, so keep scrolling for fun ways to keep yourself busy at home.


Obviously, it’s important to keep your home clean and germ-free for you and your loved ones. Disinfecting, sweeping, mopping and vacuuming every room in your home can be a very tiring full day endeavor. You can stay active while ticking off the must-do task. How about multi-task by listening to a podcast or your favorite playlist while cleaning your spaces? 

Social distancing means you probably work from home. Why not make your own comfortable-but-beautiful working area. Many people are transforming their little corner at home into an adorable “home-office”; it’s not late to start creating your own. For more tips on how to work from home effectively, click here.

In addition to scrubbing every corner of your home until it’s sparking, decluttering your stuff is a sure-fire way to lift spirits. Your physical space is a reflection of your internal mental state. Therefore, it’s always great to declutter all the excess you have and organize it into a user-friendly system. Need some ideas? Feel free to keep scrolling down. 


Yes. There is no doubt that it’s often much easier to eat out or order delivery. However, cooking and eating at home will be safer, and it’s also a lot of fun. The best part can be witnessing all the failed attempts before hard-earned success. There’s no better bonding activity than getting your hands dirty in the kitchen and making meals can also lessen the workload of your family members. Don’t forget to document the whole process and share it on social media whether you’re aiming to craft a healthy diner, bake the most delicious brownie ever, or whipped-to-also-broke-your-hand the Korean Dalgona coffee. It’s inspired people to do the same. Need some inspiring you may ask? Scroll down and thank me later.

Investing in yourself

“The best investment you will ever make is in yourself,” said Warren Buffett.

You have plenty of time, how about learn a new language, or take an online video maker class? By the time you return to your office, you will be proficient at working remotely and have additional knowledge that will make you an asset. If you don’t know where to start, why not try to begin by reading a book? You will be amused by what you learn later.


When it comes to keeping sane, nothing is better than exercise. Gyms, pools and other sport centers might be closed, but there’s no reason you can’t get your blood rushing and heart pumping at home. You can try a skipping rope, yoga, lifting weights or simply some good old push-ups. Trust me: you’ll feel better after working up a sweat. 

There are just some options for things to do while at home. You can scan through your New Year’s resolutions and to-do lists and think about what you want to achieve and what brings you joy and purpose. Finally, stay social even when you are practicing social distancing. Use Skype, Facebook, Viber, Facetime, Zalo, Kakao, or whatever app you have and make a video call with your family, friends, and colleagues to keep connect and catch up. Remember, you are not alone in this.
