Time is a funny thing – it can seemingly stretch out forever, or it can rush past in a flash. A lot of us have got quite a bit of time on our hands at the moment and filling it can sometimes be a bit tricky, so why not take a look at some of these boredom busters to help you through the Easter weekend. Thank you to Marsh for the inspiration!
Before we get started, remember some of these key points during this isolation period:
- Be kind to yourself and also to others
- Stick to a routine
- If you’re working from home, focus on the key tasks and the work you are producing rather than the hours you are doing. If possible, take holidays and put your laptop away
- Don’t put too much pressure on yourself
If you’ve ever fancied a trip to some of the world’s best museums, galleries, tourist attractions and zoos then click below to download a list of those offering free virtual tours. The best bit? You can visit them all with a cup of tea and a biscuit in hand.
For the theatre buffs among you, why not take a look at some of these FREE options:
- The National Theatre is streaming one play every Thursday on their YouTube channel. Each show is up for a whole week, so you can watch it as many times as you like.
- The Royal Albert Hall is also showing some of their concerts on their website.
- Andrew Lloyd Webber is streaming some of his most beloved musicals on YouTube every Friday. Each musical is available for 48 hours.
- The Not Forgotten have got their very own variety show – The Best Seat in the House – available on YouTube. New shows are released every Tuesday and Friday at 3pm.
Not forgetting some fun activities for the kids…
We’ve put together some fun ideas for children (just click below), but we reckon some of the museum and zoo visits may be fun for all the family too!
