How To (Virtually) Make The Most Of Life Under Lockdown

How To (Virtually) Make The Most Of Life Under Lockdown

People are getting creative and using technology in several ways to come together during a time when for the good of us all, we’re keeping apart.

Human beings are naturally social (some less than others you might say) so being able to keep a connection with colleagues, friends and family is healthy for us. Especially during anxious times like these.

Since we went under lockdown people have used technology to stay in touch.

Below are four ideas and links, to help you make the most of life under lockdown and bringing those close to you together – virtually.

Virtual book clubs: Virtual book clubs have boomed since the lockdown. Probably because they are easy to do. Just get a group of friends, read the same chapters of the same book each week, then catch up on Zoom, or other video conferencing platforms, to discuss what you’ve read.

Virtual pub quiz: Many of us miss a drink down the local, but many people have made the best of things by setting up online pub quizzes. See the link below for tips on how to create a perfect one. Cheers.

Murder mysteries: Fancy gathering some friends and family for a game of whodunnit? Virtual murder mysteries give you the chance to get in touch with your inner Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot. You’ll be able to get creative with costumes, alibis, and a suspension of reality for a couple of hours. We’re in!

Kids’ (and grown-ups) birthday parties: One of the saddest aspects of the lockdown has been how many children have missed out on their birthday parties. But technology now makes it possible to get your little cherubs around computers to take part in games, quizzes, dance contests and many other ways to have fun.

This all goes to show that where there is a will, and Wi-Fi, there’s a way to have fun, stay safe and stay socially active.

At Knights Property Services we’re embracing the virtual world ourselves by investing more in video tours and offering valuations and viewings virtually. Please get in touch on 01276 539111 for more information.
