Fun Activities to Do While Social Distancing

Fun Activities to Do While Social Distancing

By now, you’ve probably heard the term “social distancing”. According to scientists, journalists, and politicians, social distancing is the key to curbing the spread of coronavirus. In other words, you should avoid human contact as much as possible to prevent the spread of germs. As medical professionals work to create a vaccine, social distancing is currently one of the few tools we have in the fight against COVID-19.

It’s not an ideal practice for spring breakers or families looking to go on vacation, but it will help reduce the number of coronavirus cases and allow you to enjoy some peaceful time at home. Worried about going stir crazy? Here are a few activities to keep your mind and body intact until we overcome this virus.

Reading a Book


Now might seem like the perfect time to binge-watch TV shows and movies, but why not give your mind a little exercise with some reading? Pick up that book you’ve been meaning to read since last year, and let your thoughts wander away from the headlines on social media. eBay is offering 3% cashback on books, comics, and magazines, so check out their page on TopCashback and take this opportunity to dig into some literature!



Stocked up on all your groceries? There’s never been a better time to sharpen your culinary skills. Try cooking some new dishes and spice up your stay-at-home experience. You can even save yourself a trip to the grocery store by ordering through sites like Safeway and Blue Apron!


Games are perfect for anyone looking to turn their social distancing experience into a family bonding experience. Whether it be board games, card games, or even video games, a little friendly competition can be a welcomed distraction from all the stress and panic circulating in the news. Entertainment Earth and are offering cash back on board games and video games!

Watching Movies

We advocated for some light reading earlier, but there’s still nothing wrong with watching a good movie to let your mind escape for a few hours. When the world’s looking as dark and dreary as it is, sometimes watching a story with a happy ending serves as a friendly reminder that everything will work out in the end.

Sites like Disney+ and Hulu are offering awesome cashback rates and coupon codes on all your favorite movies (and TV shows, too)!

It’s easy to get pessimistic given the current state of affairs. We should all try our best to look on the bright side and make the most out of the hand we’ve been dealt. Whether you want to crack open a book, pick up a new hobby, or just veg out in front of the TV, find some way to enjoy your time spent at home.

Let’s be honest; if staying in and relaxing is all we need to do to fight coronavirus, then this won’t be a difficult fight at all.
