Hello Everyone

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this troubling time.

We wanted to post something light and helpful during this time when most of us are self quarantined... what else is there to do while at home? Im sure most of us have watched everything on our Netflix watch list by now so here are some other creative wheelchair friendly ideas to do alone or in a couple while at home:

- learn a new language: there are so many apps and programs available now online! Try something new, now is the perfect time to learn that language you've always wanted to learn!
- organize and clean: if you're a lower level injury or a caregiver/WAG of SCI, now is the time for those DIY cleaning and organizing project you've been putting off! 
- Feng Shui your entire home! Google this to get the details :) its fun and creates a better space for everyone!
- Download Masterclass and get learning! So much information available on this app, all in video form with a course for everyone!
- get good at an online game or learn Poker!
- read a new and hot book that has been on your list. Most books are available for download onto your device now.
- document and journal your experience 
- document and journal your LIFE experience OR write that book you've always wanted to write on your journey!!! With all the self publishing and website tools available now, the sky is the limit and people want to hear your story!

What other ideas do you guys have for keeping busy while at home?

    I have been journaling a lot just to get my thoughts out either on the computer or in a book.

    Getting outside for fresh air is helpful too even if you are just hanging out in your backyard or on your patio or balcony. 

    Online shopping cause hey... we are cooped up may as well treat yourself  :)

    That’s a really great list of activities! I have actually started doing most of those things already, so boredom hasn’t hit me yet. 

    I would add connect with family and friends who you haven’t spoke to in a while. Preferably video chatting.

    Explore the world through your computer. Many of the world's greatest art museums have virtual tours that are fabulous. Nurse Linda

    I loved all those ideas and haha online shopping @JHPRC. I've heard there's online Catan as well. Getting outside is still an option too, plus spring is around the corner!

    I've been:

    - teaching my dog new tricks
    - writing emails with my niece in 3rd grade to help her with reading/ writing skills in a fun way
    - working from home 
    - going on lots of rolls with my dog
    - cooking new things based on what I've found in my freezer
    - I cleaned my fridge (eek!)
    - reworked our household budget (in light of anticipating many things changing)
    - had video dinners with friends

    I love your suggestions and hope to see even more!!

    A proofreading software is crucial for the people who deal with digital writing like copywriters, bloggers & e-book authors. In this comprehensive article, I am going to compare two potential proofreading software— Grammarly vs Ginger.
