Hunker Down Like a Boss
Time at home doesn’t mean you have to be stuck in a rut. Make the most of it with our best tips to keep you and your family motivated and productive.
Organize Your Closet
Channel your inner Marie Kondo. Decluttering your closet is a great way to appreciate what you have and what you don’t need. If you don’t love it, donate it.
Skip the Library

Ahojte! Dlho som nepridávala žiadne knižné tipy 📚, ale poctivo som čítala, aspoň pár minút každý deň 🤓 Nepriek tomu, že poviedky neobľubujem, bavil ma @tomhanks a tiež príbehy psychoterapeuta Franka Tallisa #nevyliecitelnyromantik Amy & Isabelle od #elisabethstrout absolútne čitavé, bolo zaujímavé sledovať formujúci sa vzťah matky a dospievajúcej dcéry odohrávajúci sa v malomeštianskom prostredí. Aktuálne čítam príbeh od írskeho spisovateľa Johna Boyne / Neviditeľne besy srdca, zatiaľ veľmi dobré a odvážne! Tento mesiac mám fakt štastie na kvalitné čítanie a verím, že tie čo ma čakajú rovnako nesklamú 🥰 Tak dočítania! 💁🏻♀️ #dnescitam #booklover #kniznetipy #books #bookstagram #tipsforreading #timeforbook
You Sunk my Battleship!
Take the “bored” out of being home and break out the boardgames. Checkers to chess, Life to Monopoly, and Who Broke the Ice? are a fun way for the family to connect.
Against the Grain
Nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread. All you need is flour, yeast, salt, and sugar to fill the house with the wonderful aroma of home-made bread. Here is a link for an easy-to-make bread recipe.
Genius Level Binging
There’ll be plenty of time to deep dive into the latest Nic Cage movie on Netflix. Take your binge watching to the next level with TED Talks. Short, powerful presentations by some of the smartest people on Earth, TED Talks cover everything from science to business to global issues.
Put Pen to Paper
You’re probably keeping in touch with everyone via Facebook, Twitter, and email. But here’s a crazy idea—write a letter. It’s a fun way to share what you’re experiencing, and the recipient will love to find something other than junk mail in their mailbox. If you need a refresher, here’s how to write a letter.
Hang a Picture
Okay, so you might not have a framed piece of art ready to hang in the foyer. But what house projects have you been putting off? You don’t need to remodel the bathroom or add a pool house, but now’s a great time to make a list of things you want to fix around the house. Grab a pad and pencil and start your home repair punch list today.
Find Your Inner Zen

Self-care is crucial. Just because you’re spending more time at home doesn’t mean you have to live in your pajamas. Find your groove and make sure to take care of yourself. Take the time to do one thing for yourself every day that makes you look and feel better. Here are some tips to keep your life as “normal” as you can.

YOU MATTER💕 Use this time to really focus on taking care of yourself ~ when we’re in a positive state of mind, we feel so much better. Down time can be a great time to invest in self love & self care ~ steam your pores (steep a bit of rosemary), soak in a warm bath, read a great book (numerous online resources), create art, stretch your body, give yourself a facial, exfoliate (sugar or salt will do), take naps, explore new make-up looks, try a new recipe or just relax. Moms, you can do many of these activities with your kids ~ they need TLC too!💕 #selfcare #selfworth #selflove #relax #youareenough #loveyourself #healthyliving #positivevibes #positivevibesonly #fearless #faithful #blessed
