Cleaning or organizing your house is another great way to kill time whilst staying home. The thing with houses is that there’s always something to clean and things to put in order. Cleaning and organizing stuff around your home also relieves stress and makes living there easier.
Dust-off, sweep, and wipe all the rooms clean if you can and if time permits, you can also organize your room, your kitchen, or your bathroom. Ask your housemates for help to make it less dragging and tiring. You can be sure that once you’re done, you’ll feel better about your place than you did before you started.
