The end is (hopefully) in sight! It feels like there's genuinely a chance of a steady return to normality from April onwards. While overall lockdown life has been stressful, and let's face it, boring, there are some elements that we will miss, and i'm sure many of us will regret not taking more advantage of lockdown. With that in mind, we've put together a few tips on how to make the most of the last days of lockdown.
1. Finish (or start!) your reading list
Hands up, who else created a huge reading list for all the free time we had in lockdown, only to instead revert to re-watching Friends for the umpteenth time? Well now's the time to properly get moving, or, if you've been good, to finish yours off! A couple of personal favourites from lockdown in the fiction category are 'Educated' by Tara Westover, and 'The Secret History' by Donna Tartt. Or if you're looking for something more along the business route, 'Shoe Dog' by Phil Knight is an excellent biography on how he founded Nike!
2. Get Cooking
With many of us can work from home, combined with the fact all the restaurants are closed, has given us the time, and let's face it, necessity to cook! While i'm sure we'll all rush out once the restaurants do open, now's a great time to appreciate the home-cooked meals. So dig out the old cooking book and try a new recipe today.
3. Prepare for post-lockdown life.
Now that we finally have some indication as to how long we'll be stuck in lockdown for (🤞), it's a great time to be planning your post-lockdown life. Whether that be a new skincare routine (hint hint), or preparing for the trip of a lifetime with friends/loved ones.
