Are you stuck indoors? Well, that’s just about everybody. We still don’t know when we can go back to the way things used to be and enjoy being outdoors. But here are five indoor activities anybody can enjoy while staying in the confines of your own condo.
Cooking and baking
They say the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Well, it is safe to assume that the saying is true for everyone. Feel free to include anybody in this activity, even the kids will certainly enjoy learning how to cook. Not only will this serve as a good bonding activity to get the family closer together, but it will also help with staying healthy. Avoiding junk food and greasy fast food takeout will be easier once you start discovering the wonders and benefits of home cooking. Not to mention, the amount of money you can save if you start cooking regularly.
Reading a book
Technology has definitely made life way more convenient than it was a couple of years back. Try grabbing a physical book and run through its pages manually as opposed to downloading an e-book. You may notice that touching a book and its pages has a more soothing and gratifying effect, especially when you finish the entire book. Go start on that page one that has eluded you for years and keep flipping.
Organizing your closets
Maybe your favorite sweater has shrunk and won’t fit you anymore? Take it out of your closet and start organizing. Cleaning out old stuff is not supposed to be a chore. Make it fun and reminisce with your stuff as you go through each one. Run through all the items and see what it is you still need and segregate all the things you don’t. One way to help others as well is if you can donate all your old clothes to charity or orphanages. Not only will you manage to get stuff organized, you also get to send assistance to those who need it. One man’s old stuff can be another man’s treasure.
Arts and crafts
Get your hands dirty. Now that you spend most of your time indoors, there is no better time than now to direct that pent up creativity into something beautiful. Whether it be painting or origami, express yourself. This is also a good time to also use old materials in your home that can be recycled into your next table centerpiece. Turn trash into gold with your imagination.
Spice things up by doing science experiments which you can do at home. From creating a miniature volcano with household items like vinegar and baking soda, to mixing ingredients to make slime. There are a lot of fun science experiments to be found on the internet which you can safely execute at home. Just be careful and not do the experiments which advise you not to try at home.
You are only limited by your own will and imagination. There are other ways to make staying indoors more interesting. Get your thinking caps on and find what suits your interest best and start doing it.
