(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- With the outbreak of COVID-19 everyone has had to adjust to doing things at home; this includes schoolwork, working out, sleep schedules, etc. Many Mustangs are finding new ways to stay positive and busy when not working on schoolwork. 

Junior Ella Botko has found multiple ways to keep active and busy.

“I have been tanning and doing a lot of at-home workouts,” she said. “I’ve also been spending a lot more time baking and doing things with my family, such as watching our new favorite show Buzzfeed Unsolved together, which gives us something to look forward to every night.”

Students have also focused on becoming more active, since most recreational areas and gyms have closed. Junior Emma Paliotta and her family has been using this spare time to be more active.

“I have been exercising a lot and spending time with family on walks, in the pool, or just driving around in the car,” Paliotta said.

Junior Aj Bereiter also enjoys spending time outside fishing and running when he isn’t working on school related tasks.

Aside from schoolwork, students can –

  • go on a walk
  • draw or paint
  • catch some sunlight
  • watch a movie
  • make a new snack
  • have themed dinners with their family
  • read a book
  • deep clean their rooms
  • try an at-home workout
  • focus on self-care
  • call friends to stay in touch.

There is a multitude of different activities students are able to try during quarantine.
