Keep In Touch
You can do this daily, a couple of times a week or just whenever you feel like it. Sometimes talking to your close ones can make all the difference if you’re stuck indoors. Talk to people on Whatsapp who you haven’t spoken to in a while- did you lose touch with some of your old friends once you moved to University? Why not get back in contact with them and see how they are getting on. You might rebuild a friendship you once lost.
Discover New Sounds
Make a playlist to share- use Spotify to listen to some old classics and discover some new songs as well.

With a lot of video content for you to get through, take the time out to learn something new during this downtime.
Learn Some New Recipes
This is obviously depending on what you have in to get culinary creative in the kitchen. If you’ve always wanted to try a recipe now’s the chance to do so. Get your family involved or find some fresh recipes online. Antoni Porowski is sharing loads of ideas on Instagram currently.
If you’re feeling creative, get drawing, learn some Adobe software work on your creative writing- sit down at your desk or on your bed.
Get Set for Digital Lectures
With Universities moving online to complete student courses, make sure you are set at home or in your room once they go live. Create a workstation, make sure you have everything you need for the lecture. Look to get a group chat going so you can talk to other students on your course about work and see how they are feeling about the new changes.
Whatever you choose to do during this time make sure to look after yourself and others around you. If you do need to talk remember the site teams are available to help along with our wellbeing partners Big White Wall.
