The covid-19 pandemic has changed our daily lives in ways we could not have imagined. Having to spend most of our time in the home thanks to the lockdown restrictions means finding ways to occupy ourselves. It’s not easy, but there are some things you can do. Here’s our list of five things you can do to keep yourself entertained and occupied during the latest lockdown.
Get in the Garden
It’s almost spring so now is the time to get out into the garden! You may not have been inspired to sort your garden out before, but it is an ideal way of getting some fresh air and is proven to be beneficial to one’s mental health. Whether you just want to tidy up or you fancy growing your own veg there is no better time to start than now. Everything you need – from seeds to tools – you can buy online, too! Get the family out there with you and enjoy your outdoor space.
Find a Hobby
Your normal working life may not leave you enough time to indulge in hobbies or other interests, but now you have more free time you can! Whether you choose to collect antiques – check out online auctions – build a model railway (more fun than you might imagine and great with the kids) or start brewing your own beer there’s nothing stopping you, so do something you’ve always wanted to do!
Watch Great TV and Films
If you’ve exhausted Netflix, we’ve got something for you. Check out this film and TV recommendation from No Majesty who offer top class programmes and blockbuster films that you and all the family can enjoy. There’s plenty to choose from for when you’ve binge-watched everything on the other platforms and it’s so easy to use. Check it out and start planning your TV viewing for the next few days, you’ll love it!
Learn about the World
On that not they also have a selection of the best David Attenborough documentaries and you know how brilliant they are! Not just beautiful to watch but informative and educational, you’ll see places you never knew existed and animals in their natural habitat, all superbly filmed and presented by the multi award-winning Attenborough, a national treasure if ever there was one. This is one set of documentaries the kids will love, too, so add some of these to your TV planning.
Decorate the House
Finally, what about that room you’ve been meaning to decorate, or those little jobs you’ve been putting off? DIY may seem like a chore – and decorating too – but while you have time on your hands why not put some music on and get what needs to be done started in your own time? It makes sense, and you’ll feel a sense of pride when you look at your handywork!
We know it can be difficult to stay in lockdown so use the above tips as your inspiration and enjoy the time you have to yourself as best you can.
