Even though the situation can bring on or aggravate anxieties here are a few ideas that might improve things. Being homebound can bring fabulous opportunities for you to have a go at things you, “do not have time for”.
Top tip - try and be in a routine of getting up, eating, resting, doing, playing and sleeping.
I have spent the last few years mostly at home unless someone takes me out and here is a list of things to do in an attempt to save your sanity if you are not used to 'staying safe’ at home.
https://www.canva.com/ here you can create many things; memes, books, cards. The picture is a Canva made vision board I created to demonstrate
Free pictures you can use for your project/play
Take an online course - maybe in a subject completely different to all you know. The following offer free ones:
Drawing and colouring in
Free audible stories
Kindle has many free books that will be revealed if you do an Amazon search
Think of something and watch a video about it
Book with me - we love self-promo
Listen to podcasts - best to just search yourself
Write the book that is in you
Share random things you have discovered or remembered like unusual recipes
Recommend films, box-sets and books
Start a blog
Look for free puzzles online
Read or watch something in a different genre to your usual
Try an exercise you have never done before - health permitting
Develop a self-care routine/ritual - see previous post

Try to have moments of silly and fun
