Corvin Giles

During this pandemic people are going to be spending more time at home or in an isolated space until further noticeBeing stuck in the house may not sound too appealing to everyone but there are still activities anyone can do in the comfort of their home to entertain themselves during this time of quarantine.   

`In the article, “Avoid Cabin Fever with These 125 Ideas to Keep Kids Entertained During the Coronavirus Crisis,” author, Stephanie Osmanski, has some ideas. “Filming TikToks, take a virtual field trip of the Boston Children’s Museum, watch the Cincinnati Zoo livestream, and etc.” She even has a description of how to do the activities, as well. 

Another thing people can do is exercise. Natalie Dreier said, “Go for a walk, get outside…You can leave your homes in most cases, just practice social distancing. If you’re not under curfew or shelter-in-place orders, doctors say fresh air and exercise are good for not only your physical health but also mental health. You can walk around your neighborhood if you live in the suburbs, go to a park, go hiking or go jogging. Just make sure you know where and when you can go when it comes to the state laws and COVID-19 restrictions.”  

Dreier also said, “read a book.” She says, Psychology Today suggests reading five books you have always wanted to read, but never had the time.” 

Dreier encourages people to make masks, too. She said, “The White House and other government officials continue to debate whether to advise people to wear masks to protect themselves and others from coronavirus. Recently, President Donald Trump said his administration would have regulations when it came to the general population and the wearing of masks, but that the measures would be voluntary. Some opportunities for wearing masks while in public would be when going to pharmacies and grocery stores, The New York Times reported.”
