Author: Carl Shave - Director

We know that it’s a tricky and uncertain time at the moment, and keeping busy is made difficult as we are advised to stay inside. If you’re wondering how to spend your time in self-isolation then we’ve put together a few ideas which are bound to keep you occupied.

  1. Spring clean your home

If you’ve been meaning to clean your home for a while, then what better time to get it done? Re-shuffle your wardrobe, put away those winter jumpers and dig out all your spring clothes. If you have enough free time, you could even spread your jobs over a few days, so, cleaning your home doesn’t become a chore!

  1. Workouts from home

No gym? No problem. Replace your gym visit with a new home workout, why not try sit-ups, skipping, squats and burpees? If you’re having trouble thinking of a routine, take a look online for some home workouts, you can even get the children involved with Joe Wicks’ 9am online PE lesson!

  1. Binge watch a new series

Everyone loves a new series, and Netflix has plenty to keep you busy during self-isolation. Even better, they have launched Netflix Party which allows you to watch with your friends online, so, you don’t have to worry about them skipping ahead and spoiling the ending!

  1. Mindfulness colouring

Research shows that mindful colouring can provide numerous benefits for all ages. Colouring goes beyond being an activity for relaxation, it’s known to be a great way to de-stress! What better way to get creative whilst at home?

  1. Get stuck into a new book

Sometimes getting stuck into a book can be hard when you have a busy schedule, which makes now a great time to start that book that’s been sat on your shelf for ages. How about going digital and download the latest book on the Kindle app!

  1. Learn a new language

Challenge yourself by learning a new language. There are plenty of benefits of learning a second language, such as improved memory, boosting brain power, sharpening the mind, the list goes on!
