5 Great Ways To Unite And Stay Connected During The Coronavirus Lockdown

The outbreak of the coronavirus has taken the world by storm and changed daily life for almost everyone. The shakeup to our normal routines could never have been pre-empted and as a result many of us are striving to find things to do to occupy ourselves within our 4 walls. For some people however, the lack of entertainment isn’t the only downside of being stuck at home. During this period a lot of people will feel disconnected from their friends and family and this has a seriously damaging effect on their mental health. It’s extremely important to check in on friends and family to maintain a strong social bond so a great way to do this is by sending thoughtful gifts, so we have put together a list of 5 thoughtful gifts to get us through lockdown and back together.

Win a £20 Amazon Voucher

Every few months I like to give away an Amazon voucher and I find that it's a great way to thank you, my readers, for sticking by me for all these years, and it gives you guys a nice little treat for the one that wins. I also opt for an Amazon voucher as then the choices are endless when it comes to what to purchase with it.

You could go for a treat for your kids, saving for something bigger, or even just some chocolates in the Pantry area. I mean, I've been running these every few months for the past year and the winners have bought some lovely things. One emailed to say she had bought her little one some books, where another emailed with a gorgeous photo of a crib she had put it towards getting.


Lockdown Style Doesn't Need To Be Boring

I think we all felt the same at the beginning of lockdown. A chance to stay at home, as we'd been told to by the government, and sit in our pyjamas all day whilst snacking and trying our best to work from home. But as someone who worked from home before lockdown, I can tell you that this doesn't work for too long. 

Staying at home might sound like a blessing, but not making an effort for that long can cause us to be impaired mentally. Staying in your pyjamas gives you that excuse not to go out, not to need to do anything, and can mean you end up feeling rubbish.
