The current situation has turned our lives around, we’ve had to disconnect from our usual routine and it’s completely changed our daily habits. If you’re wondering what to do and how to best spend your time while you wait, the answer is simple: at home! We’ll help you fight off boredom with a series of ideas of what to do alone or with your family. Keep reading and don’t miss out!

  1. Get closer to friends and family from remote. Just because you have to stay indoors doesn’t mean you can’t spend time with family and friends the way you always would! There’s no reason why video calls should only be for meetings. Host an online dinner party, watch a movie together or have a coffee or glass of wine from your balcony and catch up! It’s a new way to enjoy getting together with your loved ones!
  2. Now’s the time to pick up that hobby you’ve always wanted to try! Nurture your creative side and take up painting, knitting or even writing. There’s no time like the present to learn to play an instrument or speak a new language. The gorgeous landscapes and sea views from outside your window are the perfect inspiration!
  3. Read that book you’ve been saving for later! It’s the perfect time to get lost in another world or time and enrichen our lives through literature. Whether you’re a fan of fiction or non-fiction, make yourself a cup of tea, get cosy and crack the spine of that book that’s been sitting on your shelf. You can even start a book club with your fellow bookworms.
  4. Experience cultural activities like never before. Many famous musicians are hosting streamed concerts every day. You can also travel from the comfort of your house, as famous museums worldwide are offering virtual tours of their collections. Say hello to the Mona Lisa at the Louvre, hop over to the Vatican and admire the Sistine Chapel or head to America and marvel at the Guggenheim!
  5. DIY! Is there an area of your home you’ve been wanting to add a personal touch to? Maybe there’s a hand-made detail you wanted to add to your house or a gift you’d love to craft and give to someone once this time has passed. Get inspired by the stunning design of your home and start a new project.
  6. Don’t stop learning! Many websites and universities are offering online courses for those who have been wishing for some free time to keep expanding their knowledge. Make the most of your free time and gain a new expertise.
