How to Make the Most of Lockdown

It’s been a couple of weeks, which have felt like a couple of years. You’ve studied the posters in your room and learnt how many items of cutlery are in your kitchen drawer. You’ve finally paired up all your mix matched socks and are reconsidering the To Do list that might now extend through May. While staying at home has become an act of community solidarity, it is natural to be getting a little bored by the confines of your own four walls. From gaming in parallel realities to rediscovering your inner artist, here are some of our top tips for bringing a dash of adventure into your isolation bubble.

Get Creative

It’s been how long since you dabbled in jazz?! Now is the time to reconnect with your artistic passions!

Diving into music, art and photography can be extremely rewarding, and now is the time to get started! From musical instruments to cameras and DJ decks, find a rental to channel the artist within!
