Stay-at-Home Tips

Things You Can Do Without Leaving Your Apartment

March Madness was canceled. IUPUI changed its classes to be online-only. And then, the Indianapolis mayor issued a travel restriction for residents of Marion County. It’s not the year anyone envisioned, but people are adapting to being at home more than usual.

Need some ways to occupy your time at home? We’ve got some tips for you! 

Organize Your Photos

If you snap a lot of photos on your phone, you might have hundreds of images that you don’t need (like all those selfies that didn’t make the final cut). Now’s a great time to go through your photos, delete the ones you don’t want, and sort images into folders. 

Make a Spotify Playlist

Create a personal playlist on Spotify and add music that reflects how you’re feeling. Even better, make a collaborative playlist and invite your friends to add songs to it. It’s a nice way to maintain connections when you can’t see your friends in person. 

Teach Your Dog a Trick

Do you wish your dog would sit or stay on command? You’ve got some extra time now to develop those skills. Check out any number of YouTube videos that demonstrate how to train dogs. 

Learn How to Cook

As restaurants are closing throughout the United States (at least temporarily), many chefs and restaurant owners are staying busy by recording cooking tutorials. This is an amazing opportunity to learn from culinary experts, and many of their classes are offered at no charge. 

Take a Dance Class

Have you ever thought about taking a dance class but weren’t sure you wanted to do that in a group? Now you can take a dance class in the privacy of your own apartment. A lot of professional instructors and dance troupes offer online classes. 

Move to a New Apartment
