10 THINGS TO DO WHILE SOCIAL DISTANCING
As if 2020 isn’t strange enough, we throw COVID-19 into the beginning of March and BAM #SocialDistancing. If you been on any of the social media or news sites in the last week, you’ve seen every meme and post in the world about “quarantine” “lockdown” and all the other “gimme 50 ft” buzzwords. The boys and I have been in the house going on 5 days because I’ve a pre-existing condition that increases my risk and I’ve had to be extremely creative with keeping us sane. Took some time to list some cool things that we’ve decided to do while we are fighting cabin fever.
Start a video bible study with your friends.
In NC we are under mandatory restriction from gatherings of more than 10 people. That also means no church. Google Hangout or Messenger Group Chat options make it easy to round up friends and family to worship or do bible study. Where 2 or 3 are gathered (even online) is all you need.
Smart Synch your home.
Smart Homes and IOT are the very popular nowadays. We love our Firesticks and Echo Dots. We took the time to create a few custom skills to read our affirmations. Break out Youtube for some quick instructions on how to hook your Echo Dot to your sound bar for the ultimate Alexa experience.
Be Creative! Start a podcast or a recipe blog.
There is a niche market for everything. Find your lane and just keep swimming. If you need ideas on how to start a podcast, check out my episode, http://bit.ly/2tjQ8JO. Ive been thinking of doing a recipe blog and using Wix to link it here.
Revamp your website/inventory
Content is yours for the taking! Browse some of your favorite sites and cross check yours to see if it’s as good as you’d like it to be. Use Mailchimp to consolidate and update your email list!
Update your resume with some tech skills.
There are tons of free resources that will help you stay tech savvy for your specific industry or field. See what your company offers, check your local library or community college for in person courses (in the future).
Check online courses like LinkedIn or Coursera for things you can do right now.
Catch-Up on your audiobook library
If you are anything like me, you have a bunch of half read books and books that haven’t even been downloaded in your library. Play one while you are working, cooking or cleaning. I even have Audible synced to my Alexa so I can listen in surround sound.
Deep Clean/De-Clutter your home
There are tons of videos on minimalism. There is a series on Netflix called Tidying Up with Marie Kondo that gives a holistic approach to decluttering. You’ll appreciate less stuff when you have to move it around to sanitize anyway!
Rearrange your furniture
Feng Shui, Chinese geomancy, is a ancient practice that is a system of laws that are suggested to govern spatial arrangement in relation to the flow of energy. Pinterest and Google have great recommendations regarding optimal furniture placement for peace and motivation.
Start an indoor garden
Spring is right around the corner. Now is the perfect time for you to start planting seeds that will be perfect for the spring/summer. Check out this video for ideas, https://youtu.be/nRaJ3taB07k.
