Crash Course in Entertaining Yourself
What to do in lockdown? How to entertain yourself? We help you! Or perhaps you’re in quarantine: all the best wishes and we’re rooting for you to get well soon.
With so much anxiety, distress and the world in lockdown (in some form), you can do your bit by simply staying home. But, for that, you need a friend, a little help.
That’s where we come in (trumpet playing) how you can entertain yourself. And in doing so, keeping others safe. Including yourself. Because while research is being done, we have a major responsibility to stay home.
eBooks are around for a while, but now people must steer clear of physical contact: they save lives! You can still order books, but with new regulations, it’s not a given you will get them.
These electronic ways to read have come a long way in levels of comfort. And, they can become your best friend now, since you get them directly. No waiting. No shipping fee. Plus, it won’t get damaged by delivery.
Read on your phone or laptop
It isn’t just eReaders any longer. Both Amazon and Kobo have web apps, you don’t even need an e-reader. The great thing about using both is you can start reading on your phone and it will sync with your laptop. Meaning, you can continue reading where you left off. Once you buy the eBook you get them on every device. You can read straightaway.
Not a minute you have to waste feeling frustrated and bored by disappointing entertainment. Especially the lack thereof.
Alternative to spice up eBooks
Especially for those who have trouble staying focused when reading or simply enjoy Audiobooks work the same way as eBooks: you can listen to them directly.
As you get comfortable, you only have to relax and hit play.
Tips to avoid frustration
Depending on where you live, you may want to fact-check before ordering books online. Some countries are in full lockdown and all non-essential goods won’t be delivered to you. Instead, choose stores that are based in your country. Doing this helps to avoid frustration: not getting what you ordered when you need it most.
Know how you feel. Now it’s probably not a good idea to be entertained by horror. Especially because you’re already part of horror right now.
This situation is most likely going to take months, if not a year at least. Therefore, another tip! Find entertainment that soothes you, surprises you and helps you to imagine.

Virtual & online: DON’T keep in touch with your friends physically. Especially STAY AWAY from the elderly and those with fragile health.
USE social media, What’s App, FaceTime or simply call.
Shopping for groceries, lots of it can be done online. To keep everyone as safe as possible, delivery services take precautions. Do it too.
