The shelter-in-place order has compelled everyone across the city to hunker down at home. For some that means spending a lot more time with roommates. For others it means kids are home from school and there is no “escape” from finding ways to keep them occupied. Other folks who live alone are turning to social media and video conferencing as a way of staying in touch. Anyone who is sheltering-in-place also has the opportunity to make the most of this time by taking on some new activities. This a wonderful opportunity to learn new things. Here are some ideas you can take on starting today:
Get Creative in the Kitchen
Have you binge watched “The Great British Bake Off?” Is the Food Network your “comfort channel?” It is time to put all the things that you’ve learned into action. There are two approaches to take. The first is to work with what you have in the pantry. This might mean creating your own fantastic dish based on what you’ve got on hand. The other option would be to find a recipe from your favorite cookbook and order up the ingredients on Instacart. Then you can give your new recipe a try.
Start a New Hobby
Do you have a hobby that you used to do as a kid? Is there something you always wanted to try? This is the time to take it on. You can learn an instrument, grow a bonsai try or take up painting. Any one of those hobbies can be taught with some online tutorials.
Take on Puzzles
It is important to keep your mind sharp when sheltering-in-place. Puzzles can help with that goal. Clear off the dinning room table and build a massive jigsaw puzzle. When you’re done, glue it all together and put it in frame. This will be your shelter masterpiece. There is also an endless supply of word and numbers puzzles available online for you to take on every day.
Enroll in an Online Class
Colleges and universities all across the country already have been offering online courses. Now is a great time to sign up for one of these classes. You don’t have to go for a degree program (but you could!). Just take a class that interests you like literature or history. Most of the classes have an online discussion element so you’ll be able to set up a new social circle online.
Clear Out the Clutter
Spending more time at home could reveal that you’ve been living with a lot of clutter. It’s time to say goodbye to that rubbish once and for all. Junk King Los Angeles can help with that. We have established new pickup procedures to help keep our customers and our crews safe. When you’ve identified all the things that you want to get rid of, set up a hauling session with Junk King Los Angeles. We can make it all go away fast.
