Suggestions for self isolation

Due to many people now self isolating due to coronavirus and the fact that many countries are telling people to stay indoors unless necessary (and also many public places are closed including pubs and restaurants in the UK) I thought we could make a list of things to do that dont involve leaving the home/leaving home very little. These are my suggestions please feel free to add some more.

- cooking from scratch
- batch cooking
- trying an new recipe (provided you can get the ingredients or have them already at home)
- having a video games marathon
- painting
- drawing
- having a dvd marathon
- reading a book
- reading reviews of stuff on amazon
- posting reviews of stuff on amazon
- downloading an ebook
- signing up for a free trial of a streaming service eg Netflix
- taking up a new hobby or resurrecting an old hobby
- colouring
- skype/call/text friends and relatives
- go to a park if you have one nearby
- plan a day out once everything is normal
- plan a holiday once everything is normal
- playing music
- having a lie in
- watching tv
- have a bubble bath (provided you own a bath)
- practice yoga (there are some videos on YouTube)
- practice meditation
- practice self care
- put a face mask on
- paint your nails

Some more I thought of

- feed birds (if you dont already have a bird feeder you can do it on a flat surface)
- start a blog or update your existing one
- have a clear out of stuff that you can give to a charity or sell
- if you have a pet give it extra cuddles and/or schedule playtime during the day
