Are you finding it hard to keep yourself entertained while you’re indoors? You’re not alone. Still, until it’s 100% safe to go back to the way things were, the best thing you can do for your safety is to stay at home in your Temecula apartment and take advantage of the community amenities. Many apartments for rent in Temecula, CA have great amenities, like pools, playgrounds, basketball courts and tennis courts, to name a few. Now is the perfect time to take full advantage of all the available amenities but remember that in many cases, basketball courts, playgrounds and fitness centers are still closed due to the pandemic. Here are some safe activities you can do to fight off boredom.
Stay or Get in Good Shape
It’s easy to fall victim to a sedentary lifestyle since many of your favorite places to go to are closed, and most gyms and fitness centers aren’t allowed to operate. That said, you should still try your best to stay in shape to keep your immune system up. Simple exercises such as push-ups, lifting weights, or jogging in place help a lot. If your Temecula apartments community has an outdoor basketball court, check with management to see if it is open for a solo session or a private game with your kids.
Have an Indoor Family Picnic
Looking to spruce up your dinner routine? Forget ordering takeout. If you want everyone to look forward to eating, consider cooking together instead. Look up some recipes online, have everybody help out, and enjoy it in the property’s picnic area. Alternatively, you can have a nice, intimate family dinner and binge watch on your favorite films.
Grow a Green Thumb
Most apartments come with spacious balconies and terraces that residents rarely use. So what should you do with yours? Grow herbs and edible plants! Not only do you have an alternate source of food, but you are also making your balcony more beautiful. No green thumb? No worries. Thanks to the Internet, there’s plenty of time to watch gardening videos to hone your craft.
Treat Yourself to a Spa Day
With all the handwashing you’re doing, you’d better be moisturizing just as much. But since the pandemic has temporarily canceled spa days at the salon, the next best thing is an indoor DIY spa experience. You can order most of what you need online, including bath bombs, bath salts, moisturizing face masks, and body scrubs. To recreate that authentic spa experience, light up some scented candles, play relaxing tunes, and put on your comfiest robe.
Find Ways to Stay Productive
Working at home has its benefits, but there are twice as many distractions to prevent you from getting everything done. If you’re finding it hard to focus, consider a change in scenery. Take your work to the balcony where there is a view, go to a common area where you still have Wi-Fi access, or take a short break and walk around for a while. You’re guaranteed to come back with renewed focus.
