Hey all! Here is an awesome guest post from Sarah, who guest posted a little while ago.
More and more countries are telling their people to stay at home. Maybe it hasn’t hit you yet, but my guess is, sooner or later it will. Staying at home all day can get dull. Here are 20 ideas of things you can do:
1. Read that book you always wanted to read but haven’t gotten around to yet. (Anyone else have huge TBR lists?)
2. Offer to do an extra chore.
3. Listen to the audio Bible.
4. Spend more time with your siblings. Read them a book, create a treasure hunt, or simply listen to them.
5. Pray! In this time of crisis, it is so important to focus on God. Maybe switch up your prayer time a little. Start using a journal or use a prayer request book if you don’t have one already.
6. Catch up or get ahead with some schoolwork.
7. Send a pen-pal a letter. Who doesn’t love getting mail?
8. Meditate on a Psalm. Awesome ones are Psalm 121, Psalm 91, …
9. Try a new hair style. What better time than when no one sees you, to experiment?
10. Write a poem.
11. Call a friend you haven’t talked to for a long time.
12. Have a family movie night. Prepare snacks and get the room ready with comfy cushions etc.
13. Memorize a chapter of the Bible with a friend or sibling. Check in on each other every day and see how far you’ve gotten.
14. Sort that art drawer of yours (or anything else that’s messy).
15. Make a fancy dinner for your family.
16. Have a photography session with your siblings – This can be fun, even if you’re not a photographer (e.g. me).
17. Write an article of Joyfully You. 😉
18. Go for a run (or a walk if you are like me and don’t like running).
19. Learn the basics of a new language/sign language.
20. Write down 100 things you are thankful for and thank God for each of them.
Let me know in the comments: What would you add to the list?
