We’re stuck inside too, and we get it. It’s hard not to focus on the headlines, the uncertainty and the heartache. We’re all leaning on our houseplants — and each other — for support during these tough times.

Ready to get busy? Here’s a look at 100 ideas for things you can start doing right now to enrich your life — or at the very least, your weekend — without leaving your house.
