1001+  Homebound Activities 

"We’ve been in isolation for little over a week now and I’ve lost count for the amount of people saying that they don’t know what to do". link

I don't know the answer of what to do for any specific person. But I can offer lists containing over a  thousand ideas on what to do and perhaps some answers for you on what to  do will be in one of those lists.

The Google Play store and Apple Apps store each  offer millions of apps. Problem is unless you know what your specifically  looking for its kinda hard to find apps of interest.   I've created a website that indexes these stores and  allows users to browse  for apps using the index,  enabling you to find apps that match with your personal interests. Here is a link to the website



 Isolation Busters

Quarantine, day 14. Me and my boyfriend spent the whole day setting up an art gallery for our gerbil.

Virginia Satir, a respected family therapist, said “We need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.”  

Unfortunately due to covid-19 physical hugging is not recommended for the next few years,  until we all get vaccinated. However there are a good number of  activities that can  act as hug equivalents.  For example, saying I love you or giving flowers are two really good ways to give a   hug equivalent.

The links below are meant to inspire folks on how, while in isolation,  to get their daily requirements of hug (equivalents) met...
