NEED SOME INSPIRATION?
I’m bored. I’m busy, but I’m bored.
We’ve been in this quarantine long enough to have gotten into some sort of routine, but while I have loads of laundry to do and school to teach, I still want to make room for something fun during the day.
What about you? Are you making time for any fun during this time? Whether you’re reconnecting with family or pulling your hair out, I think everyone could use a little change of scenery right about now.
I love lists, so I created a whole bunch of them for you to explore. Here are a few fun ways to break up the boredom of this quarantine:
1. UPDATE A ROOM
Sometimes a pop of color or a new pattern is enough to brighten your mood. Once you’ve added a few new touches, try out some new furniture arrangements!
2. PLAY SOMETHING FUN WITH THE KIDS
Retire Candyland and get messy with something new like Kinetic Sand or glow-in-the-dark Magic Tracks!
3. DISCOVER A NEW MAGAZINE
Sometimes diving into a new perspective can make you feel like you’re taking a mini-vacation. Tour beautiful homes, try out a new recipe, all while in your favorite armchair.
