Make the most of your time in social isolation
As we all get used to spending more and more time indoors, while we observe social distancing during this unusual time, it’s important to find ways to keep yourself and your family engaged and entertained.
A weekend stroll to the park has been replaced by experimenting with a new recipe, going into work seems like a distant memory as more people fire up their laptops at home, and visits to the cinema have been substituted with a good book or Netflix series.
If you’re looking to bolster your at-home experience over the coming weeks and months, then we’ve got some ideas for you that will help make the most of your time in social isolation.
- Invest in a new cookbook or two and refine your culinary skills. Online retailers, such as Booktopia and Dymocks, have a range of books that will inspire you to create restaurant-quality dishes for your family, making indoor time even more delicious.
- Treat yourself to some creature comforts for your home office or entertainment systems. Simple additions like a new monitor, a portable projector or wireless headphones, all of which are easily available online, will make spending time at home even more desirable.
- Missing your book club? So are we. But did you know, you can still organise time to chat from the comfort of your couch? There are a number of ways to access online book clubs online, such as https://onlinebookclub.org/
With a few select purchases that don’t break the bank, your home entertainment can be taken up a notch to make staying home that little bit more enjoyable.
