Self-Isolation means no get-togethers.

More and more people are going to be self-isolating in the coming weeks. So here’s a list of Things To Do for people that are self-isolating:

  2. Go for a walk – spending time in nature is great for mental health, just remember that you should be walking alone.
  3. Watch a new series on Netflix – have a browse or message family and friends for suggestions.
  4. Spring clean / deep clean – clean those areas you have been putting off. If you can get rid of some clutter, all the better.
