50 free things to do during COVID

This is a moment of honesty; this past week I’ve been feeling a bit down. I’m doing ok, but I have to be honest and say that COVID is starting to get to me. I miss everyday life filled with fun adventures, hugging my friends and no restrictions. I miss open restaurants, fun nights out on the town and internationl traveling. While some might say there are more important things to worry about, it’s important that we don’t ignore the people who are struggeling. To some people, these things are the definition of life itself and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. I try as hard as I can to maintain a somewhat normal day-to-day life these days by doing the things I enjoy the most, I therefore decided to come up with a list over free things to do during COVID. If you are struggeling or just need some inspiration, I hope this list might be helful to you.. Enjoy! 🙂
