10 Things to Keep You Busy During Self Isolation


 These are strange times for us all, if you have found yourself in self isolation or are social distancing here are some things to keep you entertained. 


1 .Do Some DIY 

Take the time to tackle some interior improvements – be that painting your walls, upholstering old furniture or rearranging a room. 

2. Make a Travel Bucketlist

Write it down in black and white the places you've yet to explore, the trips you want to take and the food you've got to sample. Similarly Pinterest is the perfect place to find inspiration and pin places you want to go to.

3. 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.

4. Play Some 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. Monopoly should be chosen at your own risk.

5. Exercise 

Replace your gym visit with an at home work-out, with squats, burpees and press-ups all achievable without equipment. 

6. Plant Some Flowers

Introduce some welcome colour into your house or garden and plant some flowers.

7. Make a Photo Album 

Remember that family holiday you took in 2016 or when you took the kids to Disneyland? Ensure that memories like this are treasured by taking the time to compile a photo album or scrapbook.

8. Try Sudoku or Do a Crossword

Looking for something a bit more challenging? Put your brain to the test and do a crossword or Sudoku puzzle and see how far you can get. There's lots of online crosswords or word puzzles which means you don't have to leave the house to have a go.

9. Read a Book 

It's time to read that book that's been sat on your shelf for the last few months. We recommend 'The Sun Does Shine' by Anthony Ray Hinton if you are after a new read

10. Marie Kondo Your Drawers

In the words of everyone's favourite Japanese organisation expert, if it doesn't 'spark joy' it's got to go. Sift between socks, underwear and whatever else is lurking in the depths of your drawers and reap the rewards of a tidy and organised chest of drawers
