You Time in Lockdown

The idea of being at home for a prolonged amount of time is becoming the new normal. We've put together a few ideas to keep your mind busy and make you feel like you are still having a bit of you time - even under the current circumstances.

Be active

Take this time to focus on your health and well-being by downloading the Couch to 5k app. This is a free app that helps you build up to running 5 kilometres. The app helps you to break this down by running three times a week for a period of 9 weeks, with the end goal being you can run 5k comfortably. If running is not for you, try going for a walk instead. Plan your route before you leave the house and get outside to explore your local area - you just might find something rather special that you wouldn't normally see.


Pick up something new

Starting a new hobby as an adult can seem like a daunting task, but not all hobbies have to including running a marathon or doing a skydive. Why not pick back up that book you haven't read in months and finally complete it, or start making your way through that ever-growing reading list to help you pass some time.


To help relax your mind and zone out from all the current news, you could take up colouring. Amazon have hundreds of adult colouring books, pens and pencils that can all be delivered to your door. Colouring will not only help ease anxiety and stress but will give you the pleasure of being creative and offer a sense of achievement once completed.

TV marathon

As much as no one likes to really admit it, we all love to binge watch a good TV show. However, sometimes life gets busy and instead of actually watching them, all we seem to do is add them to the watch list for later. Take time for yourself and start making your way through them weather it is your Netflix, Disney Plus or even your catch up on demand list. We suggest getting cosy on your settee with your favourite snacks and delete them as you go!
