Productive Things to Do at Home

With brunch plans, movie dates and lazy beach days on hold for the foreseeable future, you may have found yourself with ample time on your hands. Instead of aimlessly browsing the internet, why not learn something new? Below are a few fun and productive ideas to try.

1) LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE

Although your passport is sadly hiding away, you can still prep for your future travels. Make flawlessly ordering your favourite gelato in Italy or croissant in Paris a reality by picking up a new language for your next adventure. There are plenty of podcasts, educational apps and books to get you started.


2) WORK OUT

Your local Pilates studio might not be opening its doors but that does not mean you should stop practicing. Take this chance to work on your form or do training drills. From versions of barre, yoga, boxing and HIIT, there are plenty of classes to follow from the comfort of your own living space.


3) LISTEN TO AN AUDIOBOOK

Audiobooks are not only calming to listen to but are usually narrated by the author themselves, or even a celebrity. A great passive downtime activity for the multitasker who is always on the go, too. Pop in your earphones, and choose your favourite book to listen to while cooking or cleaning.

4) WATCH A DOCUMENTARY

Looking to be inspired or informed by more than a romantic comedy? Reach for a good documentary. With nothing but time and streaming services at our fingertips, now is the perfect opportunity to be educated and entertained simultaneously. Have your pick of films and series that cover topics such as sports, true crime and celebrities.

5) ENROLL IN AN ONLINE COURSE

When you have run out of things to do around your home and are looking for more to keep you occupied, an online course is an ideal place to acquire a new skill. Learn from some of the best teachers globally – from interior design and painting to magic, find a class that suits you best.


6) BE INSPIRED BY A MOTIVATING PODCAST

Add a podcast to your self-care routine. If you are looking for a distraction or motivation, podcasts can offer both a comforting background and an escape from your daily tasks. Gain insights and inspiration from interviews and talk shows that range from business, wellness, comedy or technology. Most podcasts are also free.

7) GET COOKING

With many of your favourite restaurants and cafes closed, you may be spending more time in your kitchen than ever before. This notion may be exciting, daunting or even both, but now is the best time to be inspired and master your favourite dishes.

Some of the best chefs in the world are taking to Instagram to share their tips and tricks, so dust off those unused cooking books and get into the culinary spirit. Up the ante by planning themed virtual dinner parties or challenge your friends to the same recipe.
