Things to do at home during self isolation

We spend much more time at home these days during the COVID-19 situation, which is of course necessary to protect our health and the health of others. Spending most of your time at home can become pretty boring, especially when you are a busy bee in your normal life. Luckily there are so many things to do at home to keep you entertained! I especially like to take this time to figure out what I want in life and what I enjoy doing. When I am caught up in the hustle of everyday life, I tend to forget to do the things that I love the most. Like being creative for example or reading a book on my couch. So instead of seeing this self isolation as a negative thing, try to see the positive sides of it. You will never get this much time to figure out who you are and what you want again. This is the perfect time to work on yourself for yourself! And if you still get bored in the meantime, here are my favorite things to do at home during self isolation:
