Happy New Year to all!
Hi I’m disabled and in lockdown like everyone, does anyone have ideas on things to do to avoid being bored. All ideas welcome

    Hi @beccyh - I hope it's OK to ask what your disability is? I've links to yoga, etc & also things like online jigsaw puzzles, crossword puzzles, etc. Or maybe you might be interested in trying some crafts? :)

    I must admit that I'm bored out of my tree at the moment, wasn't to bad in lockdown1 the weather was good and the garden beckoned, but it's cold wet and miserable now. Roll on the spring, if I could I think I'd hibernate.

    Puzzles and crafts are both good ideas @beccyh.

    Do you enjoy singing? Would you join a virtual choir? 

    Do you have a garden, windowsill, or small outdoor space you could use to grow plants, fruits, or vegetables?

    Could you start a blog about something you're interested in, or about your experiences?

    Could you perhaps volunteer? Maybe as a telephone befriender?

    Do you enjoy reading? Maybe you could join a virtual book club?
