By now, you’ve stocked up on groceries and hand sanitizer. Your pantry is full! You fought off toilet paper hoarders and avoided those pushing around shopping carts full of, weirdly enough, just mayonnaise. Your survival is covered, but what else do you need to stay sane during this pandemic?
With an uncertain few weeks ahead, it might be wise to ensure your bathroom pharmacy is stocked up as well. Are you going to run out of face wash or tampons in the near future? Now might be a good time to replenish things before things get any crazier.
No better time to tackle the growing pile of books by your bedside table! Long days stuck inside provides the perfect opportunity to get lost in a book you’ve been meaning to read. If you find yourself lacking in the library department, set up a book swap with friends — electronically!
Stay calm and keep sharp by finding a creative outlet! Buy yarn if you’ve always wanted to learn how to knit, or break out that old guitar if you’ve always dreamed of making music.
Want to keep your house feeling fresh? Stock up on any essential oils you might want to diffuse or candles you want to burn to ensure that your space is a happy, enjoyable place to be.
Now is a good time to take inventory of your craft supplies collection. Stir-crazy days inside call for lots of kids crafts, so better make sure you have all the glue and pom-poms you’ll need!
To stay away from gym germs, gather what you might need for an at-home workout! Some resistance bands, a yoga mat or a medicine ball could be just what you need to stay active while staying home.
