Activities To Do From Home During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Being in isolation can take a toll on our mental health. We can lose our sense of independence, connectedness, and efficiency.

Maintaining these components of mental health can still happen from home. Here is a list of activities that you can do as a family, as a couple, or on your own!

 Activities for Families

Activities for Couples

  • Host a skype dinner party with your friends
  • Create a bucket list of things to do together - you may learn a few new things about each other while having fun
  • Order in from open Edmonton restaurants, light some candles, and enjoy a date night
  • Play two-player video or board games
  • Enjoy music together with available online streamed concerts

Activities for Individuals

  • Keep up with your physical fitness and workout at home with online trainers like Wickham or Blogilates
  • Volunteer to deliver items to our vulnerable population (policies in place for protection)
  • Join an online community with people who share the same interests
  • Go for a walk and enjoy the fresh air
  • Have Matthew Stepanic, co-owner of Glass Bookshop, drop off a book to you in the Edmonton area
  • Catch up with old friends that you haven’t spoke to in a while by phoning them
  • Make a cook book so you have easy and fast recipes to make during the week (useful for when your back at work!)
  • Work on art projects or sign up for Create to Connect for daily creative challenges
