Practice An Instrument

As we are spending a significant amount of time at home, it’s important that we focus on doing things that will enhance our skills and improve productivity.

Practising an instrument can be good fun, and it’s also an inventive way to keep yourself entertained, especially when there are slim pickings when it comes to entertainment.

Declutter and Spring Clean

We are all guilty of hoarding items over the years and never getting around to really sorting all of the stuff out, or giving our homes a really deep clean.

Now that you're sitting at home more than usual, you've likely got extra time on your hands. The options are endless, have fun being creative and refreshing your surroundings.

Draw Something

It doesn't matter how terrible you are, just put pen to paper and draw something.

Whether it's a bowl of fruit, or the view from your kitchen window, challenge yourself to create some art.

Do A Jigsaw

If you have any jigsaws in the house, pull them out and have a go with your family.

We love this - you can also do jigsaws for free online.

If you really want a challenge then Kodak is selling the World's largest jigsaw with 51,300 pieces.

Host A Netflix Party

If you and your friends or family have a Netflix subscription, you can schedule a time to watch a movie or show synced together.

free Google Chrome extension called Netflix Party syncs video playback so you can play and pause at the same time. It also has a group chat feature so you can keep the conversation going while you watch. Everyone in the party has to have a Netflix account though, so it's not entirely free.

Do A Crossword

Crosswords can be cool!

If you haven't got one in the paper or magazine at home, then you will find loads online for free.

And look at the mental health benefits.

Make A Post Lockdown List or Vision Board

Make a list or a vision board of all the things you're going to do when life gets back to normal - whether that's buying a takeaway coffee, having a BBQ with all your friends, or going to the cinema.

Keep adding to the list whenever you think of something new.

This lockdown won't last forever, and it's good to have things to look forward to once it's all over.
