So, you’ve watched every Netflix show, cooked countless cuisines and and ‘zoomed’ through enough Zumba classes to make your legs fall off – what’s next? Here are some fun at-home activities that our staff have been enjoying in lockdown and we think you’ll like too…

Support The Local Businesses You Love

There is no time like to present to support local business! And now it’s more important than ever to help your favourite hard-working independent eateries and shops survive.

Here are some wonderful Headingley businesses that will deliver right to your door:

Bowery (creative online classes & shop)

Katie and May (clothing and lifestyle boutique)

Floral Expression (flower shop)

The Viet Baker (Vietnamese food)

The Cat’s Pyjamas (Indian food)

Kuala Lumpur Cafe (Malaysian food)

Think we’ve missed one? Let us know and we’ll add them to the list.

 

Meditate

The Netflix show, ‘Headspace A Guide to Meditation’, takes viewers through an exploration of the mind, teaching how meditation can benefit our lives. Not only will you learn techniques for effective meditation, the show delves deeper into the scientific benefits behind each one and how to apply it in everyday life.

Enjoy Far-Away Views From Your Own Home

Have you always wondered what it’s like to live in another part of the world? If you’re fed up of your own at-home view after months of lockdown, Window Swap has got you covered. The website brings up completely random views from peoples’ windows around the world, street noises and all, for you to enjoy from the comfort of home.

Escape The Room With Alexa 

Can’t make it to your local escape room right now? Fear not! Simply tell Alexa to “open the escape room” and start playing. This is a great way to have fun with family without having to leave the house!

Bake Something New!

Our Executive Administrator, Julie, baked these delicious ciabatta baguettes in her bread maker recently. It’s safe to say that in this frosty Yorkshire weather, there’s nothing we’d enjoy more right now than curling up with a warm bowl of soup and homemade bread!

 

Make A Playlist For Someone 

Taking the time to create a personalised, thoughtful gift for someone you love is often more appreciated than a generic shop bought item.

Our Marketing Assistant, Amy, created a 58 song playlist to celebrate her music-loving dad’s 58th birthday. With sentimental tracks from his younger (translation: non dad-dancing) years, it’s a perfect way to take her dad back to his beloved festival-going years.
