Staying occupied

Here are some ideas and activities that you could get involved in:
  • Speak to friends and family over the phone, letters, email or face-to-face via range of online apps.
  • Set yourself a daily goal so you feel like you have achieved something. At the end of the day think about a good thing that has happened that day
  • Keep a daily schedule of who to contact so you can speak to a different person each day
  • Do things that you enjoy:

    • reading
    • cooking
    • indoor hobbies
    • watching your favourite TV show
    • listening to the radio
    • DIY
  • Spend time doing things you have been putting off:
