10 Things to Keep Yourself Busy During Self Isolation
These are strange time's for us all, if you have found yourself in isolation or are social distancing here are 10 things to keep you entertained! And no they don't involve a box-set!
1. Read a Book
It's time to read that book that's been sat on your shelf for the last few months. Get inspired by a best-selling memoir, indulge in a chick-lit or escape to a different world for a few hours.
2. Clear Out Your Wardrobe
Dedicate your new found time and attention to sorting out your clothes, ditching items you haven't worn for six months and coordinating clothes into sections so it's easier to browse in the mornings. This is a great opportunity to get inspired about new outfits or rediscover an old favourite.
3. Make a Photo Album
Remember that girls' holiday you took in 2016 or when you swam with dolphins? Ensure that memories like this are treasured by taking the time to compile a photo album or scrapbook. Similarly, make a back-up of photos on your phone, to ensure you don't lose them in years to come.
4. Plant Some Flowers
Introduce some welcome colour into your house or garden and plant some flowers.
5. Dance it Out
Blast out some of your favourite tunes and get dancing in your bedroom, living room or bathroom. Hairbrush microphone optional.
Replace your gym visit with an at home work-out, with squats, burpees and press-ups all achievable without equipment. Transform your lounge into a yoga space and stretch it out. Check out our post on our favourite fitness apps.
7. Learn a Language
Challenge yourself to learn a new language in just a few weeks, ready for your next trip away. With a ton of apps and websites that give you lessons for free, you've truly run out of excuses not to.
8. Call Your Relatives/Friend's
The chances are you're not the only one that's self-isolating and people will appreciate a friendly chat or text message to let them know you're thinking of them. Call your grandparents to check on them or suggest a funny thread in the girls' WhatsApp group.
9. Play Board Games
If you're lucky enough to be in quarantine with company, embrace some old school entertainment and crack out the board games for some light competition.
10. Get Creative
Embark on a creative arts and crafts challenge, from sketching and mindful colouring to pottery.
