4 Ways To Spend Time During Lockdown

Let’s be honest. Nothing has been quite the same since Covid-19 hit the world as it did, and whilst at first many people were happy to spend time at home relaxing and working in equal measure, without anything to do outside it can be difficult to pass the time. Not to worry, though. Despite how it may seem, there are a lot of things you could be doing from the comfort, and safety, of your home. So, let’s talk about four things you can do during these lockdowns.

1. Online Gaming

Yes, it may seem like the obvious choice, but people love to play games and now is as good a time as ever to indulge in them. Especially as you can play many of them with friends! Whether you want to get into the pure gaming experience with a shooter like Destiny 2, go for a Gatcha game (where you spend a little money to get “rolls” on items and characters) like Genshin Impact, or even spend a little on an online betting platform, there are a lot of options available for you. Who knows, you may even find that this is something you take with you out of lockdown afterwards?

2. Get Your Baking On

Baking, or indeed any cooking, is something that we may not have had the time for in the past. Now, though? It feels as if we have all the time in the world. A lot of people have become accomplished bakers during 2020, and this year could be the time you learn the secrets of the loaf. Or, you could learn to cook other dishes too, like soups and curries, that always seemed a bit daunting otherwise. Just make sure to eat your creations with your family – be it via a Zoom call or if you live with them – so that they don’t miss out on your creations.

3. Arts and Crafts

This may be something that’s been on your mind for a long time, but now could be the moment to give it a shot. Art can seem elusive to many, which is why people have made kits like those that Brush and Bubbles have on offer to help you get started. They include three canvases of 8x10 size, one mini canvas, an easel, two sets of paintbrushes, a palette, and a variety of paints alongside some little treats (like a bottle of champagne!). You can even join virtual painting events to get a little more help and socialize with people online. Sounds like a win-win situation. Nothing like a little bubbly to get the creative juices going, right?

4. Educate Yourself

Nowadays with the internet there are so many resources available to help you learn some of the different skills out there. Whether you want to go and learn a different language with help from Duolingo or use a site like Skillshare to pick up a specific skill you’ve always wanted, there hasn’t been a better time than now to invest in yourself. Not only is it a good way to keep your mind sharp and break up the daily routine that being at home all the time creates, but it could make for a massive change in your career, opening doors you never thought about before. Who knows, perhaps that new skill you learn could pave the way for a new future once the lockdowns are over?

These are just some of the possible ideas out there, but hopefully it is a wide enough spread to help give you a few ideas and options. What other things could you do during these lockdowns? The possibilities are endless.
