Top Activities to Battle Lockdown BoredomBy Niamh Duffy -
From time to time we all need a helping hand, and isolation is definitely one of those times. Everyone will be coping with isolation differently, and that is ok. However, at Limitless we understand that time spent away from friends and family and extra support isn’t easy, so we’ve compiled a few activities the Limitless team have been up to to battle that lockdown boredom!
1. Join Musical Bingo
So Disco Bingo is basically bingo, but instead of numbers being called out you'll hear songs! We will be on a Zoom call where we can all see each other playing along, and we can even have a sing along together. All you need to be able to play is a device (laptop, computer, tablet, phone) that is connected to the internet, and pen & paper. The playlist will be full of your favourite pop and party songs from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 00sThis is a party, so it's a great excuse to put your favourite outfit! You can join here.
3. Test out your baking skills!
If you’re just like me I’ve taken lockdown as an opportunity to don my apron and get into the kitchen to test out my baking skills. Whether it is just some flapjack, or an elaborate three-tier masterpiece… baking is a perfect way to spend an afternoon. Share recipes with friends and family and perhaps plan a post-lockdown Bake Off competition!
4. Take part in a Quiz!
Did you know your brain is a muscle? Just as you exercise your body, your brain needs exercising too! Not only does it improve memory it is also proven to reduce stress. Get your brain working and join us for our Limitless Pub Quiz every other Friday! Whether you’re into geography, history, music or like to just have a guess – there will be something for everyone!
