Lockdown Ideas In The UK

Lockdown Ideas In The UK

The UK could be going through it’s second lockdown very shortly. The first time this happened, we all mainly took advantage of online streaming movies and TV box sets. Some used the opportunity to home school their kids or just take up hobbies. In a nutshell, it wasn’t easy, we can all agree. 

With warning signs pointing to another lockdown, due to spikes in Covid-19 cases across the UK, this time let’s try and make this one more productive for us. Best Price Car Sales has come up with some ideas and suggestions to try and inspire, and motivate you. Here are some choices in planting some seeds into your imagination.

Learn A Language

Why not? There are tons of free online courses available for you to start learning the fundamentals of a new language. This is also the light at the end of the tunnel scenario, that one day air travel will be back to normal and the world will be opened again for tourists and travellers.

Online Courses

What a better opportunity for now having the time to learn new things via online courses. This can also assist you in finding a new career if you have been made redundant or furloughed. Even better if the courses you take up will eventually involve making a living without the need to leave your home.

Learn To Cook

Remember that cook book on top of the fridge you got for a present and never opened it? It’s handy as a kitchen display or a quick reference guide. Give it a dust down and start experimenting with yourself, family and friends. (no more than six people!) The sense of achievement in matching Gordon Ramsay’s famous Beef Wellington will give you a massive morale boost for at least a week in lockdown.

Learn To Make Cocktails

Wouldn’t it be fun to practice and learn the art of making an assortment of delicious cocktails? A great skill to have in the art of seduction or just entertaining friends and family. A simple purchase of a cocktail shaker, spirits, and some mixers and let the fun begin.

Create A Bucket List

This is a great way to reorganize your life and set some targets for when lockdown finally ends. Forming a list of what you want to do will help you stay focused and tell your brain, things will get back to normal soon. It doesn’t have to be war and peace but it’s about taking the time to reflect on your current and past life, and having a sense of direction for the future.

Stay Fit

Even doing 20 push ups a day will make a difference to your health. With your income possibly being reduced, maybe it’s also time to think about giving up habits like smoking. You’d be surprised at the amount of ideas online in what you can use in your household in exercise equipment, from a can of baked beans, to a simple wall. Check online for ideas.

Online Shopping

Probably one of our most enjoyable pastimes is the good old shopping online. We don’t really need this as a suggestion or idea for you, as it’s human nature to want to buy new things and improve our lifestyle. One idea we’ve had at Best Price Car Sales is to buy your old vehicle by part exchange and help you upgrade with a newer used car or used van. If lockdown is fully in place, don’t worry, you can have your new used car or used van delivered free of charge to your door. All you have to do is inspect your vehicle, give it a test drive and sign for it and it’s yours. We will even give you 5 days worth of fully comprehensive insurance, whilst you're finding the best car insurance deals around.
