We all are in the same boat when we’re stuck in our home with nothing but our thoughts to keep us busy. Our head is not always the best place to be in during lockdown.

  1. This is a great list, we have certainly being experimenting with cooking. We have also finally got a veg patch to go with our fruit trees, so hopefully later inthe year will be eating and cooking with our own produce

  2. What a cool list! I’ve been super uber active throughout lockdown, its like I came alive and opened up to all sorts of new opportunities – including some of the one’s you listed:

    plenty of organising and decluttering going on,
    been meaning to unsubscribe to newsletters but haven’t got around to it,
    not learning dancing as such, but doing a lot of dancing around the lounge with my son,
    been doing Wii Fit Yoga and other Wii Fit fun games too,
    taking loads of online courses and watching loads of webinars,
    watching some interesting Netflix series (loved Selfmade by CJ Walker)
    and oh and yes, cleaned the bathrooms. Ugh.

    Have been 100% in ACTION every day, homeschooling my son and doing loads of business. It’s been pretty wild and also wildly exciting. 🙂

  3. Oh, I have done almost all the things from this list regarding organizing and de-cluttering. In fact our home is Diwali ready minus the paint 😀
    My WFH and AtoZ Challenge has kept me busy so havent had the time to watch Netflix… From 30th April, I’d binge watch on movies and series and of course catch up on my reading too. A fab list which I must share with a friend who is BORED and fed up of lock down! May be she’d find some inspiration. 🙂

  4. I am lucky that the main difference for me during this lockdown is the joy of having my family at home, and cooking a whole lot more than usual. The downside is finding supplies. But we’ve all been pretty busy with our work and I am happy to say that there hasn’t been a bored moment. I even mastered baking wholewheat bread without yeast and a bunch of other things. Great list!
