Right now, you’re having to cope with the stresses of staying at home. A Stay-At-Home Calendar is a good idea for keeping you entertained; planning your days out can make you learn new skills and hobbies that you may have never pursued otherwise.
Whether you’re out of a job, are working from home, or you have a pay cut and are wondering how to save on groceries, life is stressful.
What’s also stressful is the lack of freedom you have.
If you love to travel, the places you can travel to are your home, the grocery (though you should order your goods on Instacart if you can,) and any place outside that’s empty.
It’s hard to avoid the trap of doing the same thing at your home every night.
Unless you like routines, or what you do is interesting to keep fresh for a long time, you may want to plan your days out, so you don’t get bored.
A Stay-At-Home Calendar is a good idea for keeping you entertained, planning your days out can make you learn new skills and hobbies that you may have never pursued otherwise.
Why a Stay-At-Home Calendar is a Good Idea
An Example of a Unique Week
Here’s one example of a week at home you can plan.
Monday: Hustle Day
This is a day when you can try to make some money at home.
Whether you’ve wanted to start a new blog, want to make some money freelancing or selling a service, or do some online selling of your items around the house, now is the day to hustle.
Being financially healthy during this pandemic is a good idea, and by starting your week learning how you can monetize your talent, you can start it right.
Tuesday: Game Night
Reward yourself for hustling by having a game night the following night.
By games, we mean playing a board game with your kids or enjoying a party video game with the whole family.
Games can add some fun competition, or they can be an enjoyable solo experience as well.
Thanks to digital platforms, it’s much easier to download games without going to the store.
Wednesday: Food Night
This is a night where you try a new recipe.
Since eating out is no longer on the table, look at a cookbook and see if there’s a new dish you want to try out.
You may end up discovering new, exotic recipes that you’ll love cooking repeatedly.
Thursday: Fitness Night
You should work out most days of the week to keep your mental and physical health up.
With that said, Thursday is a good time for you to experiment with different fitness techniques.
Watch some videos online, or order a cheap piece of exercise equipment to help get you started.
Friday: Mental Fitness Night
Now that the weekdays are at a close, perhaps you should speak to a counselor or therapist about how your week went.
You may think that because you have to stay home, you’re not going to be able to find a therapist, but online therapy has made it much easier.
Websites such as BetterHelp allow you to speak with a licensed therapist and talk to them on your own schedule.
You don’t have to do it Friday; this is merely a suggestion.
Saturday: Anything Goes Day
This can be a day where you do a combination of things, such as cleaning the house, binging your favorite show, or doing all of the above.
This is a day where you’re free to experiment and get a little wild if you so wish.
Sunday: Lazy Day
Finally, why not end things off with a lazy day?
Catch up on some sleep, binge your favorite show, feel free to cheat on your diet, and have a good time.
A lazy day doesn’t mean you don’t have to be a little productive, but don’t be afraid to add a little laziness.
These are just a few ideas for a nice, productive weekend of variety.
You’re free to modify the schedule in any way or mix up your days every week.
Adding some variety can make it a week with less boredom, burnout and much more fun.
Keeping yourself productive, happy, and sane during the week can make this pandemic a candemic.
A Stay-At-Home Calendar is a good idea for keeping you entertained; planning your days out can make you learn new skills and hobbies that you may have never pursued otherwise.
