‘Rona Ramblings: 50 Things to Do while on Lockdown

If you’re anything like me, being stuck at home for an indefinite amount of time may be beginning to drive you up the wall. Thankfully, I’m here with a list of things to do to ease that boredom, if only for a minute.

Without further ado, here’s a list:

  1. Practice an instrument, get frustrated that it doesn’t sound perfect straight away.
  2. Walk the dog, avoid people.
  3. Play with your pets, until they’re bored of you.
  4. Have a photo shoot, stare at the pictures until you hate them, delete them.
  5. Don’t read the news
  6. Take BuzzFeed quizzes, think about how you could make better quizzes.
  7. Make BuzzFeed quizzes, realise it’s too much effort.
  8. Listen to a new podcast, for example the Read Option NFL Podcast ( https://anchor.fm/readoptionnfl ) (Jamie and Lawrence you can thank me for the free advertising later). 
  9. Bake cupcakes, realise you made way too many, eat four cupcakes a day.
  10. Cook a new meal, lament the amount of washing up you made.
  11. Sit outside and listen to the birds, go back inside because the birds have nothing interesting to say.
  12. Start writing a novel, get writer’s block, leave it to the professionals. 
  13. Exercise once, look at your stomach, be disappointed you didn’t get abs yet, try again tomorrow. 
  14. Meditate, feel relaxed for five seconds, until you start worrying about your problems and decide that meditation is a load of bollocks. 
  15. Don’t read the news. 
  16. Play board games, lose, flip the table, ruin family games night.
  17. Download random apps, play them for five minutes, delete them because they have too many ads. 
  18. Phone a friend or family member, remember how much you hat talking on the phone
  19. Start (and finish) a TV series, feel empty inside.
  20. Watch those films (you know, the ones everyone tells you you absolutely must watch, but you never get round to them). 
  21. Drink so much coffee you forget your own name.
  22. Start a TikTok account, cringe, delete. 
  23. Colour in a colouring book, feel at peace, until you go outside the lines.
  24. Follow that Pinterest craft you always wanted to try, realise nothing on Pinterest is the truth.
  25. Scroll through social media. Keep scrolling. And some more.
  26. Make a Spotify playlist. Never listen to it again.
