Make the Most of This Lockdown

What to Do at Home to Make the Most of This Lockdown and Come Out on Top!

The Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown and social distancing measures that followed have been a learning curve for us all.

Many of us may feel as though life has come to a standstill.

Without commutes, going to work and the after-work social activities, lots of us have found ourselves with more time on our hands.

Mental health has been a big focus during this period of isolation and working from home and the most common complaint is the feeling of helplessness or purposelessness.

This lockdown does not have to be without direction.

In fact, lots of people have finally found the time to invest in themselves and their hobbies and get around to things which have been on their waiting list for many years!

If you’d like to come out of lockdown new and improved, here are a few things to do to make the most of it!


Having some time and space to think can be incredibly productive for a person.

This level of self-reflection and life-changing thinking usually only happens to a person once or twice in their lifetime and usually through a major life event that gives them perspective such as a change of home life or loss of a loved one.

It’s okay if this major health threat and change of life and pace has made you think differently.

Ask yourself, do you find that you miss work?

Do you like where you live?

Are you looking forward to going back to work or are you dreading it?

Are you doing what you want to be doing?

Lots of people have discovered that they enjoy or don’t enjoy working from home, and ways of working is a good thing to consider during this time.

Invest in Your Hobbies

It’s an unfortunate fact that we are encourage more as children and not as adults to pursue our hobbies.

This lockdown is a great opportunity to take up a new skill, learn a language, an instrument, a craft or artistic outlet.

We have spoken before about the importance and the benefits of managing your energy and these pastimes have a role to play in that.

Learn Something New

Ideas for life – no more resolutions

Why most of us fail? If you are in the incredible 20% of people who hit their resolutions every year, congratulations! You are a rare breed 🙌🥳👏 For the rest of us, it is mostly a journey downwards into a spiral of failure, guilt, and frustration which circles back to thinking less of ourselves and hardly ever making us feel good or achieve anything meaningful. Most of us fail for three main reasons: Lack of clarity, Unreasonable expectations, and Lack of inspiration or passion.
