10 Self-Care Activities to Do at Home During the Coronavirus Quarantine

Introverts rejoice! Finally, an excuse to do you. In light of everything going on in the world, there’s always a silver lining. And that silver lining is you now have time to do ALL. THE. VEGAN. THINGS. At home … by yourself … with no one to bother you or your wine! Read on for our top 10 self-quarantine at-home activities!

Binge Vegan Documentaries

Get learned (or re-learned) on why you became vegan in the first place. Get the facts so you can have all your arsenal ready for when you are back in crowded bars forced to make drunk small talk with all the carnivores. Our favorite, The Game Changers, is currently on Netflix!

The Game Changers

Foster a Shelter Pup or Cat

Studies show that having a dog around causes the human brain to produce oxytocin. Oxytocin is a hormone also known as the “cuddle chemical” (awww) that promotes feelings of trust and empathy, and reduces stress! Great during this trying time plus you get to give a buddy a nice home for a bit! Check out LA Animal Services for places to foster!

Get Ya at Home Sweat On

You gotta work off all those self-quarantine wine and chips somehow. Try a new online workout! There are tons on Youtube for free, or our friends at Core Power Yoga are currently offering on demand classes at no charge.

Go Read A Book

Literally. Just go read a book. This ain’t school anymore! Reading is fun, guys! Become a more versed person and all that jazz! Check out How Not to Die by Dr. Michael Greger, Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer, and a really great magazine called VegOut Magazine now sold on newsstands across California. We're currently giving away FREE copies of the magazine (just pay $3 for shipping)—click here to grab a copy.

Take A Nice Long Baaaath

They say this is the time for self-care, right? Take a luxurious and relaxing bubble bath the vegan and cruelty-free way! Throw in a bath bomb from Lush, pour yourself a hefty glass of Wine, and think about the fact that your non-meat-eating lifestyle had absolutely no contribution to the coronavirus.

One Word: Icecream

Last but certainly not least, raid that fridge for all those pints and pints of deliciously delightful vegan ice cream you’ve been saving for a rainy day (good job, past you) and try each one to see which stands above the rest!
