How to Cure Your Ten-day Boredom

So, you are one of the 500,000 people in the U.S. with COVID-19, and you are stuck in your room suffering from boredom? The world of activities to do during quarantine is limitless (within the walls of your bedroom, of course).
To start off our very long list of possibilities, let’s begin with arts and crafts. Coloring therapy is always an excellent way to de-stress and focus on something other than the virus you are currently infected with. While coloring, the mind lets go of your stress-filled thoughts and completely relaxes you. Print out some coloring pages that you love and get to color your stress away! Next, make cards for someone you love! Use your creativity to write a thoughtful letter and make it colorful. If you have any other materials like beads and friendship string, try creating beautiful, original jewelry. If you have never made them before, many different creative YouTube channels and websites like http://craftjam.co can help you do so!
Another thing to do before you resort to accumulating a ten-hour screen time, is try a new workout routine. Even if you do not have access to a gym and equipment, there are hundreds of different youtube channels with other at-home workouts from abs to arms. Emi Wong on Youtube even has a ten-minute workout routine you can do right in your bed! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAoR3jEhqJ8
Now that you have all the time in the world (or ten days), there is no better time to reorganize or clean up that thing (or place if you want) that you’ve been putting off doing for days or even weeks. It is time to reorganize that dreaded pile in the corner of your room. Laura Anne on Youtube has a fifteen-minute video on how to declutter and rearrange your space thoroughly. She shares step-by-step instructions on how to establish a clean living environment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JfQN1G2ix8&t=746s
Another idea is to start journaling. Journaling has an abundance of beneficial effects. Writing entries about your day helps control and enhance your mood. Writing down events that happened in your day, as dull as they may be, clears your head and allows you to reduce overall stress. According to psychologist Barbara Markway, there’s simply no better way to learn about your thought processes than to write them down. Other than writing about your day, you can also write about future goals you want to accomplish. By writing what you wish to achieve, you are more likely to act upon it.
Ultimately, the most important thing to do during your quarantine is to stay healthy and isolated. It may be challenging, but it’s better to be bored than infecting your loved ones.
