First, there are video games. Video games are not for everyone, but if you are someone who enjoys them, it’s a great way to zone off and take your mind off things. Gaming can also keep in touch with your friends, believe it or not. Many consoles provide online voice chats, allowing the users to talk to each other. Also, some video games can be played local, meaning you can play with your family. Playing local games is a great way to connect with your family, whether it’s through strategy, solving puzzles, or just straight up having a great time!

Another one popular amongst lots of families is board games. While they can be frustrating at times, it’s a great way of getting your brain to think strategically. A plus to board games, they are almost always played with other people, meaning this is another way you can spend time with your family! Having a family game night, or something like that, is a great way to play video games with family. Having a new person pick the game every night would be fun and it would really keep you involved.

A third great thing to do is exercise. Well, that may not sound fun to you, but, you can have fun while exercising too! You can get exercise from just running around in your backyard, or chasing your dog/pet around. Slowly progressing and upping your workouts could help you feel better, and, it will make you feel that it is worth it with a timely, achievable goal!

In summation, stop complaining and just laying on your couch all day. There is more stuff to do during quarantine than a lot of people know. Video games, board games and exercise are all great ways to get your body and mind moving! Now, go try one of these options today!
