How to Keep Busy During These Times

When you’re stuck at home for days on end, it becomes hard to find things to do.

Here are a number of ways to stay busy while stuck at home.

There are only so many shows on Netflix and so many walks around the block you can take. Looking for a few other ideas? We’ve got you covered.

Re-organize your closet.

Tap into your inner Marie Kondo and get to organizing! There are a number of lines of thought behind tidying up and organizing your closet. One of the benefits of reorganizing is the joy it brings you and the decision fatigue that diminishes. When you have an organized closet, you feel better! First, remove any clothing you haven’t worn in a while and add it to a donate pile. A good rule of thumb is if you haven’t worn it in two seasons, you probably don’t need it. Also, creating sections in your close for different seasons or occasions makes your decision time in the morning go down when picking an outfit. Keep the clothes you wear the most in the easiest place to access. Organizing by color also is a fun way to set up your clothes and helps you put together outfits easier.
