8+ Ways To Beat Boredom When You're Stuck At Home

A lot of us are currently stuck at home for a lack of a better phrase. That would be fine if it was only for a day or two, but if you need to do so for an extended period of time, you might run out of things to do.

But don't worry — I've got you covered. Here are some cool things to entertain you while you're homebound.
