While times are tough and work stressful, it’s more important than ever to try and be positive, find effective ways to switch off and give your mind a break. Bridebook have put together a series of fun activities to give you some inspiration for your downtime – following on from part 1 and part 2, here are our recommendations for this week…
With easy to access online courses there’s no reason why you can’t use your free time to learn a new language. Brush up on your skills and maybe by the end of isolation you’ll be able to put them into practice! Our favourite is Duolingo – not only is it free but it makes learning a language fun!
Whether or not you think you’re the next Picasso, art can be incredibly therapeutic and a very effective way to distract your mind from work. Buy some paints and try your hand at a still life, sketch the view from your window, sit around the table with your family and draw the person opposite you, buy a Paint by Numbers… Have a go – you’ll be surprised at how quickly time flies!
Sometimes nothing beats a good old board game. Dust off the scrabble board, dig out the chess set, shake up the Boggle letters and get your household round the table for some quality time. As well as the classics, our current favourites are Articulate! and Chameleon – now’s a great time to invest in some new board games and keep the whole family entertained.
Don’t let that general knowledge go to waste and join in with a pub quiz from the comfort of your sofa. Why not get the household together and do it as a team? Try the Big Drop Living Room Pub Quiz on Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm!
These are just a few ideas to try and bring some lightness to your day. For more ideas take a look at part 1 and part 2 of our series! If you have any other ideas we’d love for you to share them – you can join the UK Wedding Venue Slack group here where there’s a #feel-good-fun channel for all things positive. And of course if you have any questions at all or need any help then please do reach out to anyone in the Bridebook team.
