50 Productive Things To Do While Social Distancing

It’s been less than two months since we started social distancing but it feels like 5 years. We’ve finished Netflix, messed up our sleep schedules and circadian rhythms while being a quarter productive.

It’s going to take a while to adjust to this new normal and get the most out of the situation. Here are 50 things one can do at home to stay sane, a tad bit productive and keep it moving.
