Staying indoors for a long time when you are not used to it can get into your nerves and make you sulky if you have nothing exciting to do. While watching, streaming, and binge-watching is a favorite of many, it may not be what you find fascinating. You can keep boredom at bay while doing these activities to help keep you physically, socially, intellectually, and emotionally fit.
1) Filling Puzzles
Doing puzzles is a hobby that is great for mental exercises as it improves not only your emotional wellbeing but also your logical thinking. You can find a daily word search puzzle that requires you to fill, depending on the day’s news on Daily News and a daily random topic on Wikipedia. There is also a vast collection of printable word searches you can print out and fill anytime you want.
Clutter, whether in your mind, room, or desk, can be stressful as it distracts the brain and leads to low productivity when studying or working. You can take time to declutter your mind by unfollowing all social media sites that make you feel stressed. The other form of decluttering that you can do is in your rooms, closet, drawers, and garage.
Apart from maintaining proper hygiene, cleaning your home and environment helps relieve depression, anxiety, and stress. You can also reorganize your house and scent it with your favorite fragrance.
4) Take An Online Course
Learning never ends. You can make the most of your free time at home during the pandemic by learning something new. You can learn how to speak a new language, play a musical instrument, sing, draw, or dance.
5) Playing Games
There are many games you can play, whether online or offline. Video games, board games, or chess are all great ways to spend quality time with your loved ones.
You do not need to be a writer to enjoy or even start doing it. You can write in a journal about the ideas in your head or your gratitude in a day.

Going out to the park or the gym may not be possible, but that should not restrict you. You can still keep fit by exercising or taking a walk around your vicinity.
9) Try A New Recipe
If there is a recipe you have wanted to try but never had the chance, you can now try it out at home. There are quite many online recipes. Alternatively, you could use a cookbook, keep yourself busy, and later relax while savoring the sumptuous meal.
You do not need a real garden to start gardening as you can do it in the backyard, vertical garden, rooftop, or balcony. You can plant flowers, herbs, spices, or vegetables that can save your trips to the grocery store or from ordering for deliveries.
