Wow, what a week! We hope that you’re all coping well during the current national lockdown – remember to look after yourselves and each other, and check in on your friends, family and loved ones.
Just because we’re in a lockdown, it doesn’t mean you can’t have fun!
Here are some ideas for this weekend:
Go for an autumnal walk with your housemates, Living Circle or one person from another household
There are so many great spots around Bristol for a (chilly) walk; Harbourside, The Downs, Ashton Court Estate…we could go on forever. Please remember to social distance if you are meeting with one person from another household.
Video call someone who you know needs a friend right now
Do you have any mates who live alone or know are not looking forward to the lockdown? Why not give them a call this weekend to check in?
Set up a shared Spotify playlist and sync with your friends
Who doesn’t love dancing in their kitchen? Exactly! Get a great playlist sorted, share with your friends and hit play at the same time. You could give them a video call too and pretend you’re in your favourite club in Bristol. Motion not open? No problem!
Have a sort-out
OK, this may sound boring but it’s good to do from time to time. There has got to be some old clothes you never wear or a drawer full of old stuff you don’t need. If you’re feeling super productive this weekend, have a sort through and get a bag of donations ready for when charity shops open up again.
And most importantly…chill out!
If some or none of the above are your thing, just take some time to rest and chill this weekend. Whatever works for you. If that’s playing video games (we have some gamers in the Student Comms team too), binge-watching your favourite series, baking, reading or anything else, just do it!
