How to Spend Time at Home Meaningfully

With the stay-at-home order still in place for many people, the question is: how can I spend the time that I have at home meaningfully? Instead of just spending the day for the sake of it, or having days and weeks pass by with no significance result or progress made on anything — how can we make these minutes and hours and days count?

We won’t be in quarantine forever; when we resume to (relatively) normal lives, we will undoubtedly exchange conversation with one another on what we learned, did, and accomplished at home.

This article will show you how to spend your time in a more meaningful way during this quarantine.

Get creative.

It’s easy to say that we don’t have time to pursue our creative ideas or artistic projects because of school, work, family, etc. But now, none of those excuses apply.

Not very artistic? Even better! Learn a new skill or pick up a new hobby where there is tangible product (like a picture, writing project, etc) that you can see at the end. Having something tangible that you were able to create on your own brings a great feeling of accomplishment and will motivate you to continue creating.

Listen to music without distractions.

Often, we use music as our distraction or as our background noise while we pay attention to other things or do work.
Music has changed from something that we use to enjoy and make time for, to something relegated to the background of our attention.

During this stay-at-home time, let’s take the time to pay attention to what we are listening and appreciate the music that we have today.
If you wanted to update your music collection, explore new artists and genres, or get back into the habit of appreciating music throughout your day, this is the perfect time to do so.
