Staying Sane During “Stay at Home”

Working at Home in Your Charlottesville ApartmentIt’s crucial that we all stay at home to protect ourselves and our community from the spread of COVID-19. Below are a few ideas to make “stay at home” less disruptive to your sanity.

Working at Home

Many of us are working from home, which can be very challenging in a home setting. Pets, children, even household chores can be very distracting. Try some of these tips:

Create a work space. Set up a defined space where you work to help children and roommates avoid interrupting you. A designated work space also helps you separate work from play.

Maintain a Schedule. Try to follow a schedule that is as close to your typical work routine as possible.

Parenting and Teaching

Families are adapting to a whole new lifestyle. Cultivate a positive attitude and remember that you are learning together. Try some of these activities that will keep your family engaged and promote good health and communication to break up the boredom:

Cooking at Home in Your Charlottesville ApartmentBuild a Blanket and Pillow Fort. It’s just as much fun as you remember.
Plan a Themed Movie Marathon. Cuddle up with some popcorn and watch together.
Make Paper Bag Puppets. Write a play and perform your own show.
Set up a Blind Taste Test. See if your kids know the difference between broccoli and cauliflower by taste.
Hold a Video Game Tournament. The winner gets ice cream!
Stage a Fashion Show. Play dress up with old clothes and jewelry and put on a Facetime show for Grandma.
Go on an Indoor Scavenger Hunt. Hide treats and toys around the house and create clues to find them.
Teach a Cooking Class. Show your kids how to make their favorite treats.

Fighting off the Boredom

Staying at home provides a great opportunity to catch up on activities that you may have been putting off for a rainy day. Organize your closets, deep clean your apartment, or put up the pictures you’ve always wanted to hang. Other ideas to help pass the time include:

Relax at Home in Your Charlottesville ApartmentStart a New Hobby. Thinking about learning to knit? There are endless online resources to help you learn a new skill.

Read. Catch up on all those books you’ve always wanted to read, or order some new ones and start your own library.

Cook. Brush up on your baking skills or make some soup to store in the freezer. Online cooking lessons can even teach you to make the perfect soufflé.

Shop. Help your favorite businesses by shopping online. Many shops are even offering online discounts to encourage sales.

Exercise. While the gym may be closed, you can go for a run, learn yoga in your apartment, start lifting weights, or work out to a dance video.

Plan. Get online and plan your dream getaway to look forward to, or to take a virtual tour of a place you want to visit.

Stay Connected to Your Family and Friends. Use your phone, your computer, even write letters. We may need to maintain a physical distance from one another, but we’re all in this together, and we’ll all get through it - together.
