Hey everyone,

I hope everyone is safe and healthy. This is a stressful time for all of us, and for those who can’t travel back home, it can be very lonely and depressing to not be with your families during such a spread of disease.

I therefore have thought of some student isolation activities that you can do while at home to keep yourself busy and have a break from revision!

1) Catch Up on Your Shows!

Catching up on your favourite shows that you missed during busy weeks is a fun way to pass the time. Or, indulge in some mindless daytime TV without the guilt!

2) Get Creative!

Crafts can be super simple, like paper crafting, to more skilled things like knitting, sewing, and jewellery making. Check out Joann’s and Michael’s for some great craft projects you can do at home based on skill level. (See also: https://www.wisebread.com/18-awesome-practically-free-upcyc… )

3) Make a Fancy Dinner

Since there is time to actually enjoy cooking and eating a quality meal, why not make yourself a delicious dinner? You can set the table with fancy dinnerware and make it like a restaurant for a change from the usual.

4) Brain Teasers

Games like Sudoku, crosswords, and word finds are great ways to relax and enjoy your time. Get cozy with a warm blanket and do some games from the newspaper, online, or any collections you may have.

5) Mail a Letter

Spend some time writing a letter to someone special, which you can mail later on. Everyone loves to get a handwritten note, and it will be a nice surprise.

6) Window Shop Online

Take the time to browse around to get ideas or prices for any items you may be shopping for in the future. Just be sure you have the willpower not to aimlessly buy if you see things that catch your eye (because I definitely don’t) !😂

7) Beauty Treatments

Give yourself a mini spa day with a variety of DIY beauty treatments. Whether it’s a nice manicure/pedicure, a relaxing scrub, or an avocado mask, it’s a good day to beautify and relax. http://www.wisebread.com/10-spa-treatments-you-can-do-at-ho…

8) Home Improvement

Staying in can give you the opportunity to try that home improvement project you have been wanting to do, but could never find the time to get done. Just be sure you have all your materials and can safely do the task. (See also:

9) Take a Luxurious Bath

(If like me you are lucky enough to have a bath in your studio, get your bubble bath going and make it extra luxurious with nice music, and perhaps a nice book or beverage. You deserve it after such a long term! Alternatively, a steamy shower and a face mask will do the trick!

10) Check on people you haven’t talked to in a while!

Give a call or a text to that preschool friend or that relative you haven’t caught up with in a long time. It’s a great feeling to talk to people you haven’t been in touch with for a while.

I hope this helps!
