Tips for Keeping Busy While Staying Home

With more and more information about the COVID-19 virus spreading throughout cities and homes in the United States every day, many people are being encouraged to stay home. Schools and office buildings are even insisting that students and office workers do their studying and working from their home so as to avoid contact with a lot of other people.

At The Online Drugstore, we understand how difficult it may be right now to stay at home all day without going stir-crazy. However, even a quick trip to the grocery store can cause an unnecessary amount of stress and confusion. In today’s blog, we’ll give you some of our best tips for keeping busy while you’re stuck at home, and of course, encourage you to shop for all of your health and wellness products online! We deliver right to your home, so you can get the essentials that you need without going anywhere.

If you don’t have a job that makes it possible to work from home, or you’re not a student whose classes have been moved online, it can be easy to get bored quickly when you stay at home for too long. Many people that have been diagnosed with the coronavirus or who have been in contact with someone who tested positive have been quarantined to their homes for at least two weeks. That’s a long time to stay put. Here are a few ideas to help keep you busy:

Set Goals for Each Day

One great way to make sure that you don’t get stuck in front of the TV all day is to set some personal goals to accomplish while you’re home for the day. Maybe you have a cleaning project that you’ve been putting off or a book that you’ve been wanting to read for a few months. Now’s the time! Make a list in the morning so that as you accomplish each task, as minor as it may be, so you can feel that sense of accomplishment and productivity.

Challenge Yourself

What other time to do a puzzle or start a new hobby than when you’re stuck at home? This is a great time to learn to knit, paint, or get crafty. The Online Drugstore isn’t just an online health store, we have a great selection of craft products that we’ll deliver straight to your door. Shop today!

Keep Moving

When you’re home all day, it’s easy to stay sedentary on the couch. Don’t do it! Keep yourself moving as much as possible. If it’s nice out, do some laps around the yard and/or your house. Run up and down the stairs a few times. There are some great body-weight exercises that you can do from home like air squats, jumping jacks, push-ups, and more. Don’t let being stuck at home keep you from keeping your blood pumping! There are always ways to move your body even if you can’t leave the house.

Call Your Friends

This is a great time to catch up with your friends, family, and loved ones that you haven’t touched base with in a while. Your schedule has just cleared up, so why not make those calls that you’ve been thinking about but putting off?


While you’re stuck at home, it’s important not to go stir-crazy. These feelings can quickly escalate and cause even more stress and tension in your life. Don’t lose hope, and don’t freak out about not being able to leave the house! Be sure to take the time to focus on your own self-care. Mediation is a great way to calm yourself down and take a breath.

You can purchase some great accessories for creating a calm environment at The Online Drugstore! We offer a variety of aromatherapy necessities like diffusers and oils that can help promote a calm feeling throughout your home. Check out the selection today.
