Things to do in Lockdown to Beat the Boredom

Things to do in Lockdown to Beat the Boredom

Things to do in lockdown to beat the boredom:

We hope everyone is staying safe and sane. Following the Government update which announced a further 3 weeks being added onto lockdown, we thought we would share some resources to keep you busy during your time at home. Hopefully, it does not trail on much longer and we can all reunite with our friends, family and colleagues soon!

For the time being though, it is important we listen to the Government advice and try to find the silver lining as far as possible and spend our free time recentering, refocusing, and learning some new skills. So, in this month's newsletter, we shared activities to keep everyone busy and also some great free resources which our team have been using to try and maintain mental and physical wellbeing.
