What To Do While You Are Quarantined

This has been one of the craziest weeks I have ever lived through. Most of us are staying close to home right now, and when the panic fades you might be asking yourself what to do while quarantined.

If you have a pulse, then you are likely very aware of what is happening in the world right now. There is a global pandemic and there are an epic number of people under government-ordered lockdown, or voluntary quarantine. Whether you are at home with your family or, like me, sheltering in place solo, there are a lot of things you can do with this unexpected time off. 

Quarantine Deals

There are a LOT of stir-crazy people sheltering in place right now, and companies have taken notice. From offering deals on deliveries, to extending massive discounts and free services, many have stepped up in an amazing way to help get us through this period. 

Below is a list of deals I have come across that I will continue to update as I see them.

Learn Something New

Since almost every school has been suspended indefinitely, there are a lot of cool online learning opportunities. Organizations are ramping up their online content for students, but I am enjoying just as many zoo tours and online classes as any kid. Below is a list of some I have found, and again, I will update as I find more.

Entertain Yourself

We can’t exactly head out to a movie or a concert right now, but the entertainment industry is stepping up in a major way!

Self Care

Self-care is such an overused term, but those rituals are so important right now. In these uncertain times Self-care might look like getting up and taking a shower even though you haven’t been out of the house for 3 days. It might look like giving yourself a pedicure. Or it might look like seeking therapy. 


This has been a life-altering, scary, difficult month. Take care of yourself. It’s ok to read a trashy book, or binge an entire TV series. I hope this gives you some positive ideas on what to do while you are quarantined.
