Social distancing doesn’t have to mean productivity distancing! While COVID-19 has you self-quarantining at home, there are ways to use that time to get ahead of tasks and projects you’ve been putting off for a while. From getting a jump on spring cleaning to shaking things up in the kitchen, here are some ways to use your time at home wisely.

1. Deep Clean Your Home
Running around from place-to-place makes it difficult to squeeze in time for a sanitize. While you’re home, get a jump on your spring cleaning and kill any germs or bacteria that may be hiding out in harder to reach spots. It’s a win-win for your health and your living space!

2. Sort Through Your Closet
Take this time to go through you and your family’s wardrobe. Try things on, see what fits and what doesn’t, and ditch anything that’s so 2019. Bag up the give-away clothes and keep them aside. Later, once the coronavirus dies down and it’s safe to head out, take them to a charity shop or donation center, or consider re-selling online.

3. Rearrange Your Furniture
Being cooped up for a while can help you start to see your space in a new light. If you feel like you need a little more room or just a change of scenery, feng shui your place! Look up ideas and tips on Pinterest, Houzz and other home decor blogs. Get the whole family in on it — your living room will seem brand new!

4. Try a New Recipe
If you have a folder of recipes you have yet to try out, now is your chance! Take stock of the ingredients you have and try out that one dish you just haven’t had time to get to. It’s a great way to feel like you’re eating at a restaurant without leaving your house. Make a menu and plan to make a different recipe every few days!

5. Read a Book You’ve Been Putting Off
How many times have you received a great book recommendation, but never had a second to get to it? This is your chance to dive into a personal growth book or even a buzzworthy new novel. Download it as an audiobook or eBook if you can’t get the physical copy. You’ll keep your mind sharp and stay entertained while at home.

As you continue to do your part to practice social distancing, you can still be productive! Give these ideas a try and shake things up while you’re at home.
