How I've been keeping busy during lockdown

Sunday, 24 May 2020

Considering I've suffered with my mental health in the past, I was not looking forward to what the announcement of lock down in the UK was going to do to my head. But weeks and weeks have passed and I've learnt the the key to a healthy headspace is keeping as busy as possible!

I have been staying very positive and strangely enough, I've actually been enjoying myself at home - for the most part. This weird situation has meant I've had to be creative and been trying all sorts of things I wouldn't have otherwise even considered.

Exercise

I hardly ever did any exercise at home before this but it's what I've been spending most of my time doing and I've actually seen an improvement as well which is awesome - my body definitely looks different to how it did at the start of lock down! Whether it's a resistance band workout in my room, walking the dog or taking my new skipping rope to the park, it's something I'm really enjoying.

TikTok

Like everyone else my age, I downloaded TikTok just to watch, and I wont lie, I have watched alot; but that lasted all of about 3 hours and now I very much enjoy making my own stupid videos as well. Luckily, I can now spend a whole afternoon learning one dance and have absolutely no guilt about wasting time. I've got just over 1400 followers at the moment and I'm loving learning how to use the app better and better every day.

Here's my first go with outfit change transitions with a new delivery from Femme Luxe

Cooking

Yes, of course I tried banana bread but after everyone got bored of eating that, my brother suggested we try fresh pasta. You know whats fun? Cooking without proper equipment. Can anyone else say they've made banana bread without a loaf tin or ravioli, without a rolling pin? In these hard times, we make do with what we've got... and we had wine bottles so that would have to do.


Knitting 

I have decided to try and knit myself a jumper and this project has been all consuming. I have been taking it to the park with me and with my favorite playlist on, hours just pass by. I picked this lovely, thick yellow yarn and so far as I can see, it's going to make for a very heavy, cosy jumper. I'm excited! Supplies kindly gifted from LoveCrafts.com

Day Dreaming 

I spent a whole lot of time daydreaming. Of what I want to eat, where I want to go and who I want to see when this is all over.

This is the longest I've been in the country in the past 5 or 6 years I'd say and yes, of course I'm missing my travels. I'd love to visit Cambodia when everything is safe again although maybe 2020 is the year to see a bit more of the UK too - I'm thinking ice cream on Brighton Beach, Holiday Cottages in Devon plus I've always wanted to see some of our other big cities like Newcastle and Manchester.
