Collectively, the entire world is living a state of flux and uncertainty and unfortunately, this pandemic has left a lot of people being made redundant and/or losing out on vital income due to lost jobs. Fortunately, there are a host of resources available to help you get back on your feet:

For Those Looking To Learn A New Skill

There's no time like the present. Especially when you find yourself with more time on your hands and unable to leave the house like would usually as you follow government guidelines and practice social distancing. If you're itching to do something with all that extra time you have but aren't sure on what, try out some online courses.

Whilst being extra productive during this time spent in lockdown and you should be proud of yourself for picking up a new skill, it's really not by force. If you want a day or two to just relax and get away from it all in the comfort of your bed, your room or some other part of your home, you shouldn't be made to feel guilty about it. Relaxing is just as important as the grind so don't hesitate to indulge in some 'me' time that can help alleviate Covid-19 worries. 

Listen To Some Music

Escape the pandemic noise for a little bit and put on some music. Make yourself a playlist of your favourite songs and enjoy them in their full glory. If you're lacking some inspiration, Spotify has a great selection of mood-boosting playlists ready to go. We especially love the Mood Booster playlist.

Join Your Favourite IG DJ's At Their Live Parties

Just because you can't leave your house doesn't mean you can't have a virtual turn up with your friends and your favourite DJ's. DJ EZ recently held a 24-hour live stream, and this article by Esquire provides a list of running live streams, so make sure you keep up to date with your favourite artists as more and more of them offer live, virtual gigs.

For Those Missing Social Interactions

Just because you're currently social distancing doesn't mean you have to emotionally disconnect. We're lucky to live in a world full of technology that emotionally lessens the distance between friends even when we can't do so physically. 

Throw a virtual movie night with Teleparty (formerly known as Netflix Party). Just load up the Google Chrome extension and watch your favourite Netflix titles in real-time while also chatting with one another at the same time. The popcorn is optional but the fun is guaranteed.
A boujee FaceTime, Houseparty lets you video chat with up to 8 people at the same time and even play games with one another. Trust us when we say that those games of Heads Up and Quick Draw! can get very competitive. 

Try A New Social App

If you're finding yourself a little bored with the same old social media apps, try out a new one. Reddit and TikTok, in particular, are guaranteed to occupy you for a good chunk of time. Before you know it, you'll be researching conspiracy theories and frantically learning the latest viral dance
