How to Keep Busy in Your Hotel Room if You Have COVID

Feb 22, 2021, Miscellaneous

Isolating when you have COVID-19 can cause you to go a bit stir-crazy, but when you’re not in the comfort of your own home, it can be even more difficult to manage. Keeping yourself busy while quarantining is easier than you think—you just need to be creative. The experienced staff at Sands Inn & Suites, a premier San Luis Obispo hotel visitors choose when they’re looking for high-quality service and maximum comfort, suggest trying these activities if you’re stuck in a hotel room with COVID-19.

Binge-Watch a Show

There are many different streaming services available, and if you have any of these apps on your phone or other mobile device, there are plenty of options to choose from. Binge-watching refers to watching entire seasons of a show consecutively. If you’re quarantining for several days, you’ll have the opportunity to binge-watch more than one.

Take a Virtual Museum Tour

Since many museums are closed due to the pandemic, several are offering virtual tours. Log on to the museum’s website and search for a virtual tour option. You can even view museums abroad, as many of them are also offering virtual tours. If a museum isn’t your thing, consider an art gallery or aquarium. The possibilities for virtual tours are practically endless.

Dive into a Good Book

If you haven’t picked up a book in a while, now’s the perfect time to do so. Reading can transport you to another place and time. It’s a great way to get your imagination flowing and get your mind off being sick. There are so many genres—thrillers, romance, adventure, science fiction—it’ll be hard to stay bored as you turn the pages and become engrossed in the story.

Get Hooked on a New Game

You have a whole world of possibilities literally at your fingertips, right inside your phone. If social media isn’t your thing, search for a new game to download. There are arcade games, multiplayer games, role-playing games, and even betting games. Some games are even challenging enough to boost memory, so you can pass the time and learn something new at the same time.

Write a Story

Have you ever wanted to write an autobiography or considered diving into the world of adult romance novels? Or are you simply interested in journaling your thoughts? Take this time to explore these creative impulses. There’s nothing quite like the feel of putting pen to paper and letting your thoughts flow through your fingertips. Even if you never publish the story, it’s something you can look back on after your time in quarantine ends.

Practice Self-Care

When you’re feeling sick, self-care is even more important. Resting, taking bubble baths, stretching, fueling your body with healthy foods, and more are all part of self-care. Make it a priority.

If you need to self-quarantine and you’d prefer to stay in a tranquil boutique hotel near San Luis Obispo, you’ll find everything you need for a comfortable stay at Sands Inn & Suites.
