Things To Do Whilst In Isolation / Lock Down!

Hello lovelies,

Who would have thought that 2020 would start off like this? a global pandemic that doesn’t seem to be going away as soon as we hoped.

So for today’s blogpost, I thought I’d share with you some of the things you can do whilst isolating. For me, someone whose got chronic illnesses, isolating isn’t really a big deal but I know for thousands, if not millions of people worldwide, isolating can be a daunting thought.

Before having Mabel, I didn’t really have a routine and now that she’s here and she has a pretty strong routine going, the thought of going back to no routine makes me feel stressed. I know that’s the case for many people when it comes to the isolating for what could be weeks. Covid-19 isn’t just hitting people physically, it’s also hitting people mentally so I just wanted to share a few little things you can do to not only get a routine going, but to take your mind off everything that’s going on in the world currently.

I’ve been racking my brains for a few days now on different things you can do to keep your mind active. So I’ve broke it down into sections for you! let’s get into it…
