Staying Active at Home

In this uncertain time, and with all of us adjusting to a new daily routine, I’ve found it’s easy to get restless. Despite the circumstances that prevent us from leaving out homes, there are still numerous ways that we can busy ourselves throughout the day — and improve our homes in the process.

Organize:

With all the extra time on our hands, now is the perfect opportunity to organize and take steps to get your home market ready. You can clean out your closet and donate the items you don’t wear, or take on a larger task and organize a larger room such as the basement. Whichever you choose, all will be tremendously beneficial to the future sale of your home.

Garden:

While there’s nothing wrong with staying inside and completing a bit of spring cleaning, getting some fresh air and sunshine can be truly therapeutic and can freshen up your home’s outward appearance. Invest in your landscape and that investment will come back to you tenfold in the home selling process.

Home Improvements:

Along with organizing and gardening, there are still plenty of ways to improve your home during this time. You can paint that room you’ve never had time to, or pressure wash the exterior of the house. With curbside options and safe social distancing measures in place, it’s easy to complete whatever project you have in mind.

Support Local Businesses:

Savannah is fortunate to have such a loving and supportive community, and with it comes a lot of wonderful businesses that need our support. There are many ways you can do this, but the easiest is to order from one of Savannah’s many delicious restaurants for delivery or curbside pickup. It’s important to come together as a community at this time and show our support.

Bake:

Baking is the perfect way to destress and indulge. Whether it’s trying to make homemade sourdough or a batch of cookies you’ve been wanting to try out, it’s important to remember to treat yourself. It’s also nice to share recipes with your family afterward, and see what they’ve been baking.

While it feels like it has been quite a while, we won’t be at home like this forever. Hang in there a little longer, and do what you need to do to keep yourselves and your loved ones healthy throughout the coronavirus outbreak.
