If you are getting a little tired of the shops not being open, the restaurants not welcoming diners, or the cinemas not showing movies, you might be feeling a little claustrophobic at home. Finding things to do that are meaningful and worthwhile while being at home can be challenging as time goes on. While you may have honed your sourdough starter a few weeks ago, you might have decorated the living room and you may have decluttered to within an inch of your life, you are now finding your days sat in front of Netflix, keeping the kids amused and snacking. This is not a productive way of using your time. Check out this guide and see what you can do during lockdown to stay busy.
Brush Up On Your Skills
If you are looking to return to work if you are in the hospitality industry or if you are currently furloughed, consider brushing up on your skills from home. Sign up for some free online courses and get yourself some new qualifications. To show off these new skills, use an online free resume maker to present your experience in a new and exciting way. Modern resume templates will allow you to show off your skills in an aesthetically pleasing way. If you are in the jobs market in a post-pandemic world, you will need a resume to help you stand head and shoulders above the rest of the competition.
If you are not au fait with the kitchen, now might be the time to hone some cooking skills. If you yearn to be gastronomically skilful, it’s time to whip out your recipe books and give some culinary masterpieces a go. Watch some cooking shows, get onto YouTube and cook some new meals for the family. If you adore spicy grub or you have always been keen on baking some stunning cakes, go for it. Cooking needn’t be a chore and learning new culinary skills will be beneficial for all the family. Rope your little darlings in to help you with ingredients measuring, marinating and mixing. Enjoy experimenting with flavors and coming out of lockdown a gourmet chef!
Sort Your Garden
We are loving our outside spaces more and more during the coronavirus crisis. Because we can’t head out and about like we used to, we are finding joy in the patio space in our garden for some al fresco dining. Those of us who don’t have a green-fingered bone in our bodies are suddenly starting to grow tomatoes, prune rose bushes and discover the joys of sowing seeds. If you want to enjoy your garden, get it fit for the last of the summer days. Whip out some garden furniture and mow the lawn. A simple, well-coiffed area can turn into an oasis that can help you relax and unwind. Weekends can be spent enjoying a barbecue, chilling out with your brood and enjoying the sound of a solar-powered water feature.
Follow this guide and enjoy keeping busy during lockdown. Allow yourself some time to relax but ensure that you remain motivated and productive throughout these more surreal days.
