Safe Indoor Hobbies for Social Distancing

| 4/2/2020 2:31:00 PM

When the novel coronavirus began making its way around the world, some people may not have thought it would cause the drastic changes countries have made. Workplaces began to shut down, schools closed and vacationers traveled home. The world started to slow down, leaving most people to seek shelter or entertain themselves while locked down at home.

At first, that might have seemed like an invitation to enjoy a staycation. After a few days of hanging out inside, doing the same things, you might wish you could go back to your old routine. Social distancing helps prevent the spread of this pandemic, but it’s frustrating to feel cooped up and bored.

Help yourself through this time at home by reading about safe indoor hobbies for social distancing. You can try something new without risking your health or safety, so it’s easier to do your part to stop the coronavirus in its tracks.
