Quarantine Activities to Keep you Entertained at Home

Quarantine Activities to Keep you Entertained at Home

The global COVID-19 pandemic gave us all a big portion of that extra time. Some of us adapted pretty well but for some being in quarantine and having too much free time can be frustrating.

The first days were amazing! Waking up whenever we want, having Instagrammable breakfast, preparing delicious and time-consuming dishes, cleaning the wardrobe and watching our favorite series on Netflix.

But after a few days, you start to walk between the couch and the fridge, you’ve seen all the new movies and you start to miss being surrounded by anything else than the walls of your apartment.

If you are bored, not so motivated or just lazy, this article is something you have to read! In this blog post, we gather all the possible quarantine activities you can do at home depending on your mood, which will save you from being bored and keep you entertained no matter how long we all have to be stuck inside!
