Play Board Games
It might be just the perfect time to bring up the old board games that you have been collecting over the years.
Scrabble, Monopoly or Twisters are amongst the most popular board games and an undeniable source of fun for all the family. We all have them in the house somewhere just gathering dust.
But if not, websites like Tabletopia offers you over 800 board games for free. You can play them with friends and family or with people all over the world.
Spring Clean During Lockdown
So, it is that time of the year again, when all of us do a deep clean and declutter our homes of all the unnecessary stuff.
This is not just one of the best ways to kill some time but it also helps you in more ways than you can imagine.
Having a clean and decluttered house gives you an important boost of energy and confidence that you need and reduces anxiety.
Lockdown does not mean that you must sit on the couch and do nothing all day. Our mind and body need the exercise to keep us healthy, prevent weight gain and release the much-needed endorphins that keep us going during these difficult times.
So, why do not you join an online yoga class, an exercise video or even create a fitness challenge with your friends?
Our mental wellbeing is one of the most important things that we should focus every day.
The lockdown might fill your head with worries, insecurity, and anxiety or even give you depressive thoughts.
Take a few minutes each day to clear all those thoughts and think about the things that make you happy. Practice deep breathing and relax your mind.
Visit A Museum (Virtually)
There is a huge number of art galleries and museums all over the world that offer you a free virtual tour.
Google’s Arts and Culture collection has put together a list of over 500 virtual tours of top attractions around the world.
Read Or Listen To A Book
Do you remember how many times you complained that you do not have time to read more books?
Well now you do, and it is one of the best ways to spend your time during the lockdown.
ManyBooks have over 50000 eBooks waiting for you, or you can get lots of kindle eBooks from Amazon.
If you prefer audiobooks, Audible offers you a 30 day free trial.
Learn A New Language
Make the most out of this lockdown and start learning a new language.
Duolingo is not only a free way to do it but it’s also fun and addictive. You can go on their website or download their app and start learning.
Connect With Friends And Family
During these times it is very important to connect with everyone and check how they are coping with the situation.
Reach out to some old friends that you have not spoken with in a while and ask how they feel. Maybe you will have lots of stories to share or you can even make someone’s day better.
So, if you exhausted all the above options here is one that will keep you busy for days.
