For starters, learn how to make your own bread.

Nothing smellsl better than fresh bread baking, but it can feel daunting for beginner bakers who don’t know what “proofing yeast” even means, much less how to do it. Plus, who has the time to sit around rising, kneading, and then baking dough? You do, now! If you’re already a pro, take this opportunity to learn how to bake a new type of bread, like sourdough, and teach this skill to your child while you’re at it.

Here’s a little Reader’s Digest snippet to making bread and cakes the easy way. Give it a read!

Work Out

Unless there’s a strict stay-indoors mandate – there’s something like this almost everywhere – you’re still allowed to go outside for exercise, while still following self-quarantining rules. (Not in groups and while staying at least six feet away from others, of course.) This is something you should take advantage of daily as exercise and sunshine are two of the best things you can do for your physical and mental health. Nature is one of the wonderful things that will never be cancelled!

There are so, SO many different ways to be productive during this pandemic. Finding puzzles to spike some life in those eyes, becoming an essential worker to help the poor – whilst maintaining precautions – and being optimistic during this period are some of the many things we have to go through without breaking up.

Find the urge hiding behind that thick façade of playing-pretend and locate your purpose in this life. Learn New Skills And Make Use Of Your Time While In Quarantine.

Good luck!
