What I've Been Doing During Lockdown

Updated: Jul 11, 2020

There's no denying that lockdown has been difficult and mentally challenging. Fortunately, I am still working, so it hasn't personally affected me as much as it has for others. Yet, I do work in care and I am in contact with Covid19+ people every day so it's definitely been a challenge.

Due to work, I now isolate myself in my room at all times (except trips to the toilet obviously!) to protect my family. Because of this, I've surprisingly become more productive! I've found a lot more free time and can concentrate better on reading and spend time working on my blog. So here's a little snippet of what I've been up to during lockdown:

British Sign Language (BSL)

Early on in lockdown, I signed up to an online course to learn British Sign Language. This is something that I've always wanted to learn as it's a wonderful way to communicate with a D/deaf person, and hopefully I'll one day have the opportunity to use it! It's hard work, but I'm getting there. I can now introduce myself and ask/answer some questions so I'm super proud of what I've achieved so far.


This one is way out of my comfort zone - I'm just not an exercising sorta gal! I do enough running around at work during 13 hour shifts, but I thought I'd better give it a try now I have some free time on my hands. Ideally, I'd love to start running but I don't want to risk meeting the public along the way (due to above reasons), so I've taken to workouts instead. This is another one that I've really enjoyed doing - it's now part of my morning routine and hopefully will stay that way even after lockdown ends.


This one's more obvious - I'm a book blogger after all! I've been reading loads more at the minute, and ploughed through all 600+ pages of the latest Hunger Games book in just over a day! My TBR is looking a little less daunting now at least...

What've you been up to during lockdown?

Take care and stay safe,
