This was going to be ‘What I’ve read in Lockdown’ post however I realised I’ve done a lot more than just that. I’m going to share everything I’ve been doing during Lockdown to keep myself entertained. I’ll hopefully not forget anything but I can pre-warn you now, there’s a lot! This was written before the announcement given about the changes coming on the 4th July.
This has become a nice hobby of mine, I’ve also seen a lot of people starting to read again. I wrote a ‘To Read List‘ on my blog back at the end of May and since then my reading motivation has definitely fluctuated. However I’ve been reading more than I ever have before. Look out for another ‘to-read’ list as I’ll be soon completing that list.
TV / Netflix / Disney+
Granted I haven’t watched loads of traditional TV (but who does nowadays?) But I have been loving my Netflix binges and Disney+ (Thanks Jem!) streaming sessions recently. I’m a huge Netflix fan and don’t think there’s many things I haven’t seen or at least heard of, I feel like I can scroll on Netflix just as much as I find myself scrolling on Instagram, haha.
I have and always have been a fan of YouTube content, personally I follow some people to have on in the background or that are easy watches and some people because they’re actual videos are so engaging and entertaining. Do you want a list of who I’m loving right now?
Podcasts I’ve always had a love/hate relationship because I feel like I can’t do anything else when listening, almost like I have to lie there and pay full attention. But recently, I’ve found myself doing odd tasks such as sorting, tidying, cleaning, cooking even whilst listening to podcasts and found them really enjoyable as well as informative. Again, think I might do a full post on which podcasts I’ve been loving!
IGTV / Instagram Live
These have been an absolute saviour and I’ve also been using these to follow fitness workouts etc or just ease-dropping to a bit of a chit chat. The IGTV and Live features being used for such a variety of content throughout lockdown. I’ve been following Lottie Daisy’s Abs Attack (Mon,Weds and Sat!) My flatmate, friend and personal trainer Lauren Hollie has been posting IGTVs in which I’ve tried a new thing (Pilates!) I’ve also been dropping in to Caroline Hirons Insta Lives on every topic surrounding skincare and feel like I’ve completed a course in all-things-Caroline-Hirons, haha.
Content Creators and the entertainment industry have been producing so much more content during lockdown and pushing us through that ‘stay at home’ period. I applaud all of the content creators who are on an absolute grind to get everyone entertained constantly. You are doing amazing!
I’d love to hear how you all have been keeping entertained and what parts of the entertainment industry you’ve been latching on to.
Thanks for reading,
