Being at home and staying busy can be a challenge; especially with working from home and homeschooling. There are activities that allow for a break from devices. Raleigh Cary Realty has put together a list of ways to stay busy around the house during this time.
5 ways to stay busy:
- Kid activities: A quick search can pull up many kid activities that involve materials that many households already have. Activities can be great mental breaks from online schooling as well as a positive time to spend with the kids. Giving kids and families a chance to smile and laugh is a great way to make a good memory.
- Organize & donate: Start small by going through the junk drawer in the kitchen. Then grow from there to get rid of the clutter and gain a sense of accomplishment. Double-check local guidelines about donations and dumping trash during statewide orders. Find a sense of control through organization.
- Exercise: Whether you like to sing and dance or find a sense of peace on a yoga mat, there are so many free at-home exercise classes. Make it a family fun activity or find a moment for yourself. Focusing on exercise can help provide a mental break. Even without workout equipment, there are videos that get creative to help get a good workout from home.
- Craft: If you have the knack to sew, be a part of the PPE cause by creating masks that can be donated to local hospitals. Check with hospital websites to see if they allow homemade masks to be donated. Being a part of the cause can make a difference to all essential workers and medical staff during this time.
