Now is the time to improve your health and boost your immune system. You don’t need a fancy workout or gym equipment to get some exercise. Remember to stretch beforehand to avoid strains and injury. Check out these links to free or free trial workout sessions:
Learn a new skill:
This is the best time to learn how to play that guitar that has been sitting in the closet all these years. Fender is offering three months of free guitar lessons.

I know this doesn’t sound like something people will be jumping up and down to do, but being home is the perfect time to get to those chores you’ve have been putting off. This could range anywhere from basic weekly cleaning (bathroom, vacuum, cleaning fridge), deep cleaning (getting rid of clothes you don’t use, cleaning the oven).
