Isabella goes through a list of new skills you can learn during the Covid-19 lockdown to ensure your being productive at home.
Although we’re all spending a significant amount of time at home, a lot of us want to ensure that we’re still undertaking activities that are somewhat productive. From drawing, attempting a Tik Tok challenge to learning a new language, the notion of learning something new has been a consistent theme over the last few weeks. So, I’ve compiled a list of new skills that vary in time & energy. Have a read and let us know if you decide to give any a crack!
Although origami can sometimes seem fiddly and complicated, origami me has a range of templates and step by step instructions with a variety of designs to choose from.

Recently, my entire insta and Facebook feed has been bombarded with content related to baking and in particular, bread making. With the majority of successfully, completed bread making content I’ve witnessed, I’m assuming that this suggestion is somewhat achievable!? I reference Jamie Oliver in my previous blog and I’m about to do it again. Watch Jamie’s tutorial as he takes you through the process on how to make a fluffy loaf of bread! I’m sure his enthusiastic attitude alone with get you through this bread making session.
I hope my list gives you some inspiration! Also, we would love for you to reach out to us if you decide to take on any of these challenges.
