How to stay entertained during isolation

Wondering how to pass your time whilst stuck inside?

No one likes feeling bored so we thought we’d round up some fun things you can do at home! Either by yourself or with your family.

Get fit

At 9am every weekday morning, Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) hosts a 30-minute workout which is great for the whole family, and an amazing way to get everybody up and moving in the morning.

He streams live from his YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1

Start a new box set

Set some time aside to indulge in a new box set without feeling guilty for binge watching!

Netflix, BBC, 4OD and more all have an amazing range of box sets that are free to watch (Netflix requires a subscription).

Things to do during isolation | Flarin

Get creative

Dig your paints out the cupboard and paint a picture, or if you have little ones, ask them to help and collect things from round the garden to make a collage!

Read a book

Pick up a book that you’ve always wanted to read, or, if you’ve got one, download a book to your kindle or other ereader. There are so many free books on there you don’t even need to spend a penny!

Play video games

Video games aren’t only for children and teenagers! Adults can enjoy them too!

You could download an app to your phone that lets you play online against other people!

Take Up Knitting

We think knitting is a great way to relieve stress. So not only will knitting a new blanket give you something to cuddle up with, but it’ll also be a soothing process!


If you’ve got a few jobs around the house you’ve been meaning to complete, why not take this opportunity to get them all done?

Call your family and friends

It’s important to support each other and show each other that we care, so take some time each day to call someone and let them know you’re thinking of them.
