what to do during quarantine

I don’t know where in the world you currently are, but in my country, we are allowed to leave our homes and go out and about. 

It’s time, you know? 

Because we can be pretty sure that the next pandemic is probably just around the corner, I want to share with you a few ideas on what to do during the quarantine.

I’m pessimistic about the future of humanity and since not much has changed around how we treat other animals in these past few months, why shouldn’t we be preparing for the next pandemic? 

Someday someone will once again eat a piece of meat that will start this whole mess. Then we will all be yet again afraid and pretend we are oh so poor – even though this all could have been avoided – and they will order we quarantine ourselves.

If you barely made it through this one, you better start preparing now because the next one, it’s not going to go away so soon, and you can be sure that you will be locked inside for many more months.

To keep you sane here is what to do during quarantine:

  • Read educational books.

The Moral Animal.

How Not To Die.

God Is Not Great.

The Greatest Show On Earth.

Homo Deus.

Rich Bitch.

The Demon-Haunted World.


The Atheist And The Bonobo.

The Autobiography Of Martin Luther King Jr.

  • Read the classics.

The Great Gatsby.

The Catcher In The Rye.

Anna Karenina.

Nineteen Eighty-Four.

The Picture Of Dorian Grey.


  • Watch interesting documentaries.

The Great Hack.


Guardians Of The Amazon.


The Game Changers.

Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.

  • Listen to informative podcasts.

Making Sense.

The Disclosure Podcast.


The Plant-Strong Podcast.

The Cosmic Skeptic Podcast.

  • Learn about mindfulness and start a meditation practice.

The Waking Up meditation app.

Waking Up by Sam Harris (book).

Mindfulness by Joseph Goldstein (book).

10% Happier by Dan Harris (book).

  • Go vegan and start making more ethical choices.

5 questions about veganism I get asked often.

Goodness gracious, these are some amazing ideas, huh?

I hope when the time comes, you find your way to this post. It will give you ideas on how to spend quality time on lockdown, as well as how to use it productively, or just without feeling too stressed and bored.

If you are wondering why I included the go vegan section, it’s because the chances of the COVID-19 happening if we didn’t exploit, enslave, abuse and kill other animals, would be significantly lower.

Save this post for when you need it, or check out some of the resources right now. Either way, have fun and take every chance you get to become the best version of yourself.
