Making the most of your day
Sure, you might be in lockdown but its still a good idea to go outside to get some fresh air, even if its just outside your front door. When the sun is out even just a little bit your mood will change drastically. Setting aside some time to go outside to get some fresh air is one of the most important aspects of keeping your mental and physical health. Consider:
Walk your dog
Go for a walk/run
Make time for friends
Even though you may not be able to see them in person, there are so many other ways you can continue interacting with your friends. Whether it is setting up a Zoom or Facetime call just to catch up on what one another has been up to. There are endless opportunities when it comes to virtual hangouts such as:
- Netflix party (put on your favourite movie)
Complete a puzzle/ Play a Board Game
Completing a puzzle or playing a board game with family is another great way for you to focus your energy on something other than our electronics. Games and puzzles have many benefits such as improving your memory and problem-solving skills. Whether the puzzle is 50 pieces or 300 pieces it is a nice enjoyable activity for the whole family so share.
Read a Book
The ‘art’ of reading a book for fun has been lost in recent generations. Reading is usually one of those tasks, many of us say we don’t have time for. Well during a winter lockdown, this is the perfect time to find a few books you have been wanting to read. Whether you are interested in fiction or non-fiction, any book with a comfy spot in your homed will do the trick.
Practice some soccer “skills”
Making time to improve your soccer skills will benefit you in many ways. Practicing will increase your speed, perfect your technique, and get some exercise in while doing it. Find a small space in your home, look up some soccer indoor skills video on YouTube, or Instagram and get to training!
