68 things to do during this Lockdown

Hello, everyone! I hope your day is going well. I’ve just had a late lunch whilst watching a Youtube video. I have a post that should be useful for everyone!

I feel like most people have dreamed of a little time away from work and now we finally have it, we should make the most of it because this ‘lockdown’ won’t last forever. When I was told I’d be working from home I decided to make a short list of things to do for myself, and then I decided to make a post for my blog in case anyone was struggling to think of what to do and I think I’ve made a pretty good list. Social distancing is something new to all of us and rather than sit at home worrying about the future, we should make the most of the time we have now. There is no order to this list and I have put spaces in between for easier reading 🙂

Tips for the best sleep ever 😴 

Sleeping arrangements have changed slightly for me at home and there’s a few things I actually miss about sleeping in my own room, I was just sitting on the sofa and thought of a few things that will ensure you get the best sleep ever!! 

1. Try not to eat at least 2-3 hours before you go to bed, because your body will be resting and won’t get the chance to digest the food properly.

2. Have a nice hot drink before bed preferably a herbal drink, my favourite is chamomile (though I don’t drink it every night).

3. Write down your thoughts or just hit down a few points and be reflective, then write down 3 things you want to achieve tomorrow for example:

– do some exam revision
– complete a home workout
– find a work placement 

4. Sleep in your favourite pyjamas and on fresh clean sheets, I think it’ll just make you feel better overall. 

5. Have a teddy in your bed, it may seem childish but it made us all happy as children so why not do it now!
