We've been staying at home and practicing social distancing due to the coronavirus. Here are a small list of some things to do to keep up your mood and your energy and your sense of accomplishment. 

1. Learn something new 

Refresh your French or Spanish you learned in school but have forgotten half of. Learn a new language with DuoLingo or any other language app. Take an online class.

2. Workout 

Take a virtual gym class, take a walk. There's lots of workouts online. 

3. Practice social "dancing" 

Dance at home to your favorite song. Dance on TikTok and give someone and yourself a laugh. 

4. Read the books you've been planning to read 

You know you have a list...

5. Connect with a loved one 

Video chat with grandma or your auntie. They would love to hear from you and it's a great way to stay connected. Pull out some paper and write a letter. 

6. Explore...virtually 

Watch live streams of animals. Try Earthcam to see many different animals. Visit the aquarium here. Visit museums virtually. You can even do a virtual rollercoaster ride. 

7. Clean your place... or your car 

You've been meaning to do it. Organize your closet. Do the deep clean (dust the blinds and the baseboards you keep saying you're going to do). Collect the coins or clean out the old french fries from under the seat in the car. 

8. Give yourself the spa treatment 

Try a face mask. Practice a new makeup look. Paint your nails. Trim your own hair. 

9. Support local business 

Order some take-out.  

10. Watch new movies 

Since theatres are closed, new movies are being released online. Use NetFlix Party to watch a show or movie virtually with friends. Grab your own popcorn.
