Advice on celebrating Shabbat alone

Hi All!

I’m a college student and am living at home during the pandemic (remote learning is tough, but for me it’s preferable than the risk of being on-campus). Anyway, I am really struggling to consistently celebrate/observe Shabbat each week. My family’s synagogue does offer Zoom services, which I appreciate and try to participate in, but they don’t happen every week, and even when they do, sometimes me/my family don’t or can’t participate.

How I can observe Shabbat personally when I have no access to a full service? To me it feels so weird to celebrate Shabbat alone (as opposed to a part of a minyan) that I often just don’t, which is getting old. Any advice on some ways to observe Shabbat solitarily would be greatly appreciated!
