Top 5 things to do when self-isolating
Many people are not in the position to work from home, self-isolating for 7 to 14 days could be tiresome and the four walls could start to feel a little smaller.
1. Learn a new skill
With YouTube videos available to educate on just about anything, take the opportunity to learn something new…
Learn a new language. A lot of people will need a holiday after this passes, so maybe learn some Spanish in preparation for a break to the Costa del sol. Another skill to consider is perhaps trying learning British Sign Language.
Saint-Gobain Weber offer lots of informative how-to videos. Renderers could benefit from learning more about Weber’s concrete repair products to make essential repairs to old buildings before coating with weberpral M, having this time at home is the perfect opportunity for renderers to learn how to apply floor screed and expand their range of services.
2. Get creative
Let the creative juices run, Ever considered taking up painting? Maybe a little bit of self-reflection with a self-portrait? The entries for the Portrait Artist of Year is now closed, but Landscape Artist of the Year is open for entries so get practicing.
To take advantage of practical skills, try mosaic tile art. Design table tops or get some fresh air and take it to the garden. Whatever the project – Weber tile adhesives, grouts and silicones can offer a hand with 18 colours available to add the finishing touches.
If the opportunity arises to refresh the paint on walls or the grout and sealant in a bathroom and kitchen – projects which won’t take too much time and money.
4. Safety first
With lots of scary news going around, maybe make a positive from a negative. Learn some first aid and CPR skills and share it with family and friends. It is so important that children understand basic first aid skills which are currently not on the education curriculum.
