First off: I just want to say that if you are an essential worker who is working to keep us safe during this time, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
With everything going on regarding COVID-19, we are all going through so much change and uncertainty. Many of us are anxious and looking for ways to keep busy and stay active during this time.
I’ve compiled a list of various projects that we can do to stay busy at home, from watching a favorite TV series to organizing your entire home. Because let’s face it, we are all different and all trying to find a balance of activities in our new normal.
Please, please, please - follow the health and safety guidelines put in place where you are located. We are all in this together.
I hope some of these ideas encourage you and provide a little bit of excitement to your day!
