    In the past few weeks, concerts were postponed, sporting events were cancelled, schools were closed and tourist spots were shut down too. Many countries initiated lockdown. The whole world came to a stop.
    Although remaining inside is a good way to protect yourself and others from the coronavirus, and is an essential measure to help "flatten the curve" of daily cases that put pressure on our health care system, it could lead to a lesser evil: boredom and stir craziness.
    What's there to do while stuck indoors? We've compiled for about 51 suggestions to help make your time quarantined as interesting – and perhaps even as productive – as possible.

    1. Complete a puzzle: The more pieces the better! Feeling extra saucy? Take on a Rubik's Cube. More of a word person? Crossword puzzle!

    2. If it doesn’t bother your neighbours: Dust off that old instrument and practice. Or you learn an instrument online.

    3. Watch all the really long movies you’ve avoided until now. Or the favourite web series you have been dying to watch.

    4. Learn a new language. Maybe, French or Spanish. We know you secretly wanted to learn it.

    5. Finish the book you started but never go the chances to finish. You got this.

    6. Meditate. Try lying down with your eyes closed, palms up and while focusing on your breathing.

    7. Face masks, moisturizer, oh my! Treat yourself to a 10-step skin care routine you don’t have time for during a normal work week.

    8. Take note from "Tangled" star Rapunzel, who has an entire song about how she's spent her days alone in a castle. Activities included in her ditty: Ventriloquy, candle-making, papier-mâché and adding a new painting to her gallery.

    9. Write actual letters to family and friends. After that? Write thank-you notes to service people who you remember went out of their way for you.

    10. Learn calligraphy. YouTube can help.

    11. Play those intense board games you bought but never played. Encourage your family to play too.

    12. Organize your wardrobe, shoe rack and your messy drawer.

    13. Bake ‘em goodies!

    14. Watch the films that won Oscars for best picture.

    15. Will Tom Hanks into recovery from coronavirus by watching every Tom Hanks movie chronologically.

    16. Knit or crochet.

    17. Use Skype, Face Time, Google Hangouts/ Duo or Zoom to video chat w\ith your long-distance friends.

    18. Try out at-home aerobics or yoga videos.

    19. Take a bubble bath (bonus: Add a glass of your favourite Fast&Up drink).

    20. Colouring books: They’re not just for kids.

    21. Take time to reflect: What have you accomplished in the last year? What goals are you setting for yourself in the next year?

    22. Write a short story or get started on that novel.

    23. Actually try to recreate something you see on Pinterest. Probably fail. Try again.

    24. Clear out the family room and camp indoors with all blankets, popcorn and scary movies.

    25. Finally get around to fixing that broken door knob and loose tile or cleaning scuffed up walls.

    26. Acquire a foam roller and treat yourself to some physical therapy.

    27. Origami it! Make cranes for your loved ones.

    28. Learn a new hairstyle (fishtail, French, etc.) via YouTube tutorial, of course!

    29. Interview your grandparents (over the phone, of course) and save the audio. Can you create an audio story or book with that file?

    30. Go on a health kick and learn how to cook new recipes with ingredients you may not be using already, from miso to tahini.

    31. Make a list of things for which you are grateful.

    32. Work on your financial planning, such as exploring whether to refinance your loan or ways to save more money.

    33. Try making your own drink with Fast&Up drinks.

    34. Write a book with your family. Pick a character and each member writes a chapter about their adventures. Read aloud to each other.

    35. No March Madness? Have a Scrabble tournament. Or Anagrams. Pictionary?

    36. Indoor scavenger hunt.

    37. Dye your hair a new colour. No one else needs to see it if you don't like it.

    38. Write a play starring your loved ones. Perform it via a video call app.

    39. Go viral in the good way by making a quarantine-themed TikTok.

    40. Go on a hunting spree of that one sock that you misplaced! Really.

    41. Stop procrastinating and do your income taxes.

    47. Attempt things with your non-dominant hand, from writing to brushing your teeth. Prepare to be frustrated.

    48. How many words per minute can you type? See if you can get speedier by taking a typing course.
