As we head into a month-long lockdown, you’re probably wondering how you’re going to cope? Well, we’ve collated multiple tasks in this blog post to keep you busy during lockdown!

Get a head start on your Christmas shopping

Learn to cook

Are you the next Gordan Ramsay? Use lockdown to improve your cooking skills and diet! Watch YouTube tutorials or invest in some recipe books and work your way up to Michelin star dishes. 

Take a language 

Remember when you said you would find the time to pick up a new language? Now you’ve got time. A wide range of online resources and YouTube tutorials at your disposal, why not use the time to learn something new.

Take a course 

Looking to improve on your professional portfolio or take an interest in something new? FutureLearn has a range of online courses provided by world-class universities and industry experts, so you can gain educational accreditation, expand on your skills, or deter yourself from boredom.


Enjoy the great outdoors or capturing moments at home? Pick up your lense and capture all the important moments – big or small on camera.

Start a blog 

Creative writer? Writing a blog can be a good way of expressing your thoughts, which is especially useful in coping with lockdown.
