SIX  FREE ONLINE RESOURCES FOR QUARANTINE ENTERTAINMENT

If you have exhausted everything on Netflix, cooked every recipe you had put off for years, and read everything you can get your hands on, you may be starting to feel “Stay-at-Home Fatigue.” That is a real thing, according to mental health experts, and you are certainly not alone in your feelings. The good news is that the Internet offers us a wealth of resources that both entertain and inform us. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Take a virtual tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Although a trip to New York City is not possible right now, a self-guided tour of one of the most magnificent museums in the world is possible. The Met boasts over two million works of art that span 5000 years.
  • If you enjoy the Kennedy Center Honors every year in December, you will love the YouTube collection of some of the annual celebration’s best performances. From Billy Joel to Lucille Ball to Stevie Wonder and everyone in between, relive the best moments of decades of great performances.
  • Speaking of YOUTUBE, it will probably be some time before you can see live theatre productions again, but you can watch the next best thing. YOUTUBE offers videos of full-length Broadway shows. Best of all, if you have a smart TV, you can watch the likes of “Aladdin,” “The Music Man,” “Phantom of the Opera” and dozens more on your own big screen.
  • Do you Babbel yet? Babbel is an online, subscription-based service that enables you to learn a foreign language at your own pace, on your own time. Not only that, but if learning languages seems tedious to you, Babbel offers a free first lesson that will let you see what the learning process will entail with its system. Best of all, each lesson is only 10-15 minutes long.
  • If you have ever fantasized about designing your own home, both architecturally and aesthetically, check out HomeByMe. With smart tutorials and easy-to-use software, you can create floor plans and even furnish every room in your design.
  • There has never been a better time to catch up on your reading. An app called Libby connects local libraries’ ebooks, magazines, comic books, and audiobooks all with a touch of a button. You can use it for free, but you will need a library card. But if you don’t, you can still access books since some libraries will allow you to sign up for an instant, digital card through the app.
