As the country went into lockdown I decided to temporarily delete some social media apps. I very rarely take time off work so I wanted to make sure that all of this free time wasn't wasted mindlessly scrolling. I created a list of could dos.
I am very much a do-er but I am also trying to use this time just to be. I'm trying to find a balance between just being and doing some lovely things too. Let's not put too much pressure on ourselves to be perfect or productive.
So here is a list of things that you could do that aren't social media.
Remember to stay home & stay safe.
