How to keep yourself busy and productive whilst enjoying the mass amount of down time we currently have… and there is plenty because here is 100 things to in your home.

#StayHomeStaySafe. A new phrase we are attached to the hip with. When 5 o’clock comes around I feel like the whole of the UK are just waiting for that daily news announcement from Boris Johnson. Feels a bit Hunger Games like with that right? As we support our nation, and try and keep our loved ones safe, the large majority of us are confined to the walls of our home. For introverts like myself, I am enjoying this little ‘break’ from reality. There is no FOMO, no worries about how much money I have spent on McDonalds during the week, and everyone is in the same situation. So whether you are a key worker, who wants to value their time between shifts. Or an A-Level student who is now wondering what they will do for the next 6 months, here are some ideas.
