ଘ(੭*ˊᵕˋ)੭* ̀ˋ hi guys! it’s me alexi / alex, and today i’ll be talking about ways to entertain yourself in quarantine! sorry for not uploading anything yesterday, but hopefully the two posts i’ve posted today ( including this one! ) make up for it.
without further ado, let’s get on with the post! ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ
✧･ﾟ*₊˚ one: do some cleaning / organizing! quarantine is the perfect time to be productive and do all the things that you procrastinated on while there was still school / work. maybe clean your room, organize your desk, or straighten out your closet! of course, if you don’t have the energy or motivation to be productive, that’s perfectly alright — it happens to everyone! start with simple things, like making your bed, folding your blankets, or even just sweeping the floor. then, slowly progress to bigger things! ٩( ‘ω’ )و
but don’t forget to take your time ( you have lots of it! ) and don’t stress yourself out! ( ⸝⸝•ᴗ•⸝⸝ )੭⁾⁾
✧･ﾟ*₊˚ two: self-care! self-care doesn’t have to be big and extravagant, not like the morning routine of a famous beauty blogger, or the self-care regime of that instagram influencer who always seems to have everything together ( she doesn’t! ). things like staying hydrated, eating healthy food, or even napping are good for you and your mental health — you can even play video games, or binge-watch a movie / tv show! ( netflix, hulu and other streaming services are 👌🏻)
but if you want to be extra, go for it! do that 10-step skincare routine you normally don’t have time for! take that fancy bubble bath with bath-bombs, and lots of rose petals and candles! do what you want!
the point is, take care of yourself! self-care, in my opinion, is anything that helps your well-being as a whole. at the end of the day, it’s about taking care of yourself! ( ˘͈ ᵕ ˘͈♡)
✧･ﾟ*₊˚ three: learn something new! there’s a ton of resources on the internet that can help you learn nearly everything, from a new language, to coding, to even computer science! for learning a new language, apps like duolingo and drops are great — just ignore all the duolingo memes ∗˚(* ˃̤൬˂̤ *)˚∗ code.org is great for learning how to code, and khan academy is just great for learning about anything and everything! ( *ˊᵕˋ)
✧･ﾟ*₊˚ four: spend time with your family! if you’re quarantined with your family like me, enjoy the opportunity to spend more time together! simple things, like watching a movie / television show together or playing a game of monopoly, help you bond while in quarantine — this time is really special, since you have more time to focus on your relationships and give them the time they deserve! ( how many times have i said time? approximately 5 times — no 6 now )
though don’t forget to set boundaries — if your parents are working or your sibling is studying, please don’t disturb them! ♡
ଘ(੭*ˊᵕˋ)੭* ̀ˋ and that’s it for this blog post! sorry again that it’s kinda short. if you haven’t done so already and would like to see more posts like this, follow this blog via email using the widget available, or via your wordpress account! have a nice day/night, don’t forget to wash your hands, and bye! 🌷
