#10 Get Dressed
Getting dressed every day, even if it is leggings or sweatpants, can leave you feeling clean (even if you haven’t showered). Putting on clean clothes gives you a chance to start your day fresh.
#9 Do Your Hair/Makeup
Doing your hair or makeup can be calming. This can be a nice change to simply brushing your hair, and being fresh-faced every day.
#8 Go Outside
Take a walk down the street. Sit in the sun. Getting outside allows you to get fresh air and vitamin D. Spending a few minutes outside can boost your mood.
#7 Pick Up an Old Hobby
Restart an old hobby that you’ve been too busy to work on recently. You may reignite your passion, or at the very least it’ll be some time not in front of the television.
#6 Try Something New
Whether it is a new recipe, a new book or new show to watch, trying something new could help you find a new interest. Trying a new hobby could give you a new skill, such as cooking, sewing or drawing.
#5 Make Your Bed
Let’s be real. You haven’t made your bed the whole quarantine. Take your sheets off, wash them and make your bed. You may feel accomplished and sleep well snuggled in clean sheets.
#4 Clean Your House
Not all at once, that can get overwhelming. Clean one room a day. At the end of the week, you will be living in a clean house or apartment. Not breathing in dust will help you feel better, so will living in a clean environment.
#3 Play With Your Pet
Take your dog for a walk or play fetch or tug. Brush your cat. Take out your snake to hold and love. Give your bearded dragon some of their favorite snacks. Clean your fish tank. Your pets are excited you are home. Give them extra attention while you can.
#2 Pamper Yourself
This doesn’t have to mean a full-on spa experience. Paint your nails if you want. Take a bath or a shower. Put on a face mask and take some funny pictures. Use some lotion you think smells nice. You’ll be more relaxed and ready for whatever comes next.
Do something that will make you smile. Watch a funny movie or television show. Tell jokes. Play a board game with people you a quarantined with. Enjoy time with your family or roommates. Leave notes for siblings, parents or roommates that will make them smile. You will feel better in making others feel good.
Make sure to wash your hand. For the love of all that is good, wash your hands.
