5 Ways To Spice Up A Winter Spent Cooped Up In Lockdown
With the COVID-19 pandemic showing no signs of slowing down, we will likely spend much of the rest of winter 2021 cooped up at home. That’s why it’s more important than ever that we find new and exciting ways to keep ourselves busy during the colder months.
Read on for some of our top suggestions to spice up the winter lockdown!
Sign Up For A Subscription Box
A subscription box is a great way to add something new to your daily routine during lockdown. You can choose from any number of delivery subscriptions online, from beer to gin, beauty to eco products.
A subscription box means that you will have something new to open every week or month depending on how often you choose to receive your subscription. These boxes are like giving yourself a present every month – and we could all use a little pampering this winter!
Engage Your Brain
There are so many different ways that you can flex your mental muscles this winter. One great way to help capture your imagination is by trying out an at-home whodunit game for adults.
There are a few different ways that you can do this, but you couldconsider a mystery box from Mysterious Mail as an excellent starting point. This type of puzzle for adults comes delivered directly to your door and is a great way to add some excitement to your days.
Take An Online Cooking Class
Signing up for an online cooking class could be a great way to add structure to your days at home this winter while adding some extra flavour to your winter meals.
Many people took advantage of the first lockdown to try their hand at baking bread, cakes or cooking homemade meals. For anyone who hasn’t yet tried something new, or if you’re looking for fresh ideas then an online cooking course could be just the thing to get you out of your cooking rut.
Update Your Style
There’s no better time to have an overhaul of your wardrobe. You could use the KonMari method of decluttering your cupboards, by donating or repurposing anything that no longer sparks joy.
Once you’ve freed up some space in your wardrobe, you can then carefully consider what, if anything, you want to replace these items with. Whether you want a total overhaul or to update your wardrobe with some new signature items, this winter is the best time to review your style.
Have Regular Virtual Meetups
Social contact with others is problematic during COVID-19, but having remote hangouts and meetups with friends and family can do a lot to help offset feelings of loneliness.
There are so many ways that you could arrange a remote hangout with your friends. You could try having a film night, where you all watch a movie together while on a video, or order in takeaway and have a virtual meal. Whatever you choose, it is important is that you get to see people who you otherwise won’t see until the lockdown is lifted.
