Humans Vs Covid19 – Ideas to help you to STAY AT HOME PLEASE!


By now, we’re hopefully starting to get the message about what staying at home means for our fellow humans.However, no one is doubting that sitting on our hands can be difficult, despite so many aspects of our lives now being geared towards making most tasks effortless and able to be completed from our sofas.

I thought it would be worthwhile to pull together a bunch of different things that you could do in order to find this time more enriching.But remember, there’s nothing wrong with just being and you don’t have to be busy all of the time.I have picked a few of the ideas up from other posts – thanks to those users for their ideas!

Podcasts – For those who aren’t familiar, podcasts are taped discussions with experts (usually) or people who take an interest in a particular topics.And there are hundreds of them.You can usually access them via a wide range of platforms including Spotify and apple.

They might include fairly distinct topics like Sports or History or Current Affairs but might also just be people discussing, well whatever they want.

Youtube – Where to start here?Music, movies, documentaries, tuition but one thing that I depend on it the most for and something you may find yourself doing at this point is DIY. Whether that is:

How to paint a room

How to fix your bike brakes

Or y’know, how to melt stuff

So please, stay at home and look out for one another – most of us don’t really have any genuine excuses not to. This is not exhaustive, feel free to post more suggestions rather than a critique underneath please!
