One of Josh and I’s New Years resolutions this year is start prioritizing date nights more and spend more quality time together. I know that may sound a bit redundant considering we already live together in a small apartment and are with each other pretty much 24/7, but our main reasoning for these date nights is to spend time together, just the two of us (and of course our dog Charlotte) with no distractions, as in phone-free date nights where we find something fun to do and just be with each other, not worrying about what may be happening on our phones. We never really did this in 2020 because everything had shut down and we never really went out (and still don’t really go out much) so I wanted to make this a goal for us in the new year! Plus it’s always something for us to look forward to now each week!
While everything is still pretty much shut down here, we are finding creative ways of having fun together and spending time with each other at home and I wanted to round up some fun and creative at-home date night ideas for you and your significant other if you’re looking to be more intentional about at-home date nights too.
Throughout quarantine, I’ve tried to keep myself busy and I’m always finding things to do at home to help out my future self. Over the past couple of weeks, I decided to finally tackle some tedious tasks that I have been putting off for forever and thought that these would be great things to accomplish during all this time spent at home. If you’re starting to feel bored out of your mind or running out of things to do at home in quarantine and want to keep up your productivity, this post is for you!
Happy Monday and welcome to what feels like day 89374813742 of quarantine! For the first couple of weeks of quarantine, I actually felt pretty unaffected by self-quarantine and everything around us in our communities shutting down, as weird as it was to see that happen.
Now that the stay at home orders have been in place for over a month now, I have definitely felt my anxiety catch up to me about everything over the past 2 weeks or so concerning the virus and everything being shut down. As I have felt my anxiety catch up to me over the past couple of weeks, I have been treating myself to extra self-care and have been keeping myself busy through various different activities to take my mind off everything and really make the most out of all of this time at home. So, today I’ll be sharing everything that I’m doing during quarantine that has helped my anxiety – let’s get started!
