4 Creative Activities To Stay Busy During A Pandemic
Posted by Roger Bobrock on
Depending on where you live in the US, you may still be under stay-at-home orders to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Whether you choose to abide by them or not is your prerogative, but with so many businesses and activities closed or on hiatus, this fall could be pretty boring.
While many activities will be closed to you, those who are seeking adventure amidst a pandemic can still get their fix by being a little creative. Below you’ll find 4 outdoor activities to enjoy this fall, while also being COVID-19 safe.
GO ON A HIKE
With fall underway and winter fast approaching, the window for outdoor activities is closing quickly. If you’re looking for a change of scenery and a bit of a workout, try going out for a hike. Hiking is an excellent form of exercise, and being out in nature can help fight off the doldrums of staying at home most of the time.
EXPLORE YOUR CITY
If you live in a big city, odds are you haven’t seen every corner. With fewer cars on the road thanks to stay-at-home orders, now may be the perfect time to get out and see what your city has to offer. Granted, your options as far as activities go will be limited, but most restaurants are open for curbside pickup, and others have employed social distancing measures to allow customers to sit and eat outside. There are also amazing viewpoints found in most cities. Grab a blanket and some snacks, and go find a pretty view to enjoy!
TRY BACKYARD CAMPING
This activity is skewed more towards families than it is single people. Depending on where you live, you may or may not have access to camp grounds and national parks. If public spaces and campgrounds are all but closed, and you’ve got kids who are bursting at the seams to get out, try taking a camping trip in your own back yard! Tents, bonfires, and BBQ’s always bring the family closer together to enjoy the simple things in life.
