Why Delay? Surprising Things You Can Still Do On Lockdown
The COVID-19 virus has thrown many spanners into many works. Across the globe we’ve seen businesses close their doors, consumers drastically change their habits, and many aspects of our day-to-day lives have ground to a halt. Still, as much as it feels as though the pandemic has put our lives on hold as we hunker down at home, it’s important to reframe your thinking. Your life is not on hold, and treating it as though it is will only cause you to throw your precious time away.
Here we’ll look at why it’s so important to have things to look forward to, as well as 4 surprising things that you can still do on lockdown.
The importance of anticipation
Anticipation is a vitally important part of managing our mental health. Especially under the current circumstances. As one day seems to blur into the next and there seems to be no end to the lockdown insight, it’s more important than ever that we always have something to plan and savour the anticipation. For instance, did you know that you can still do all of the following whilst on lockdown?
Buy a car
If you’ve long been meaning to get rid of the rust bucket on your drive and replace it with something that makes driving fun again, you may be surprised to learn that you can still shop for and take delivery of new vehicles under lockdown. According to Autotrader, there are still ways in which you can buy cars online and even get them safely delivered to your home. Getting finance online is easy, too. Even with poor credit. Who says you need a dealership?
Buy a house
Believe it or not, you can even buy a new house while under lockdown. Although the lockdown may complicate actual moving dates, deals are still getting done right now and properties are still getting bought and sold. So if you were thinking of house hunting, there’s certainly no harm in at least scrolling through Rightmove.
When you and your significant other have been planning your dream wedding, there’s no thought more crushing than the idea that the coronavirus might cause you to delay or cancel your big day. Still, even if you can’t have the perfect wedding day, that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a wonderful marriage together. Across the nation, couples have begun to tie the knot under lockdown. If you’d rather not wait to say your “I dos”, why not join their ranks?
Get in the best shape of your life
Finally, it’s not only possible to get in the best shape of your life under lockdown… it’s actually easier than it was previously. With less access to sweet, fatty and salty treats, there’s less temptation to cheat on your diet. And who says you need a gym to get a great full-body workout? There are all kinds of exercises you can carry out at home with no equipment needed other than your own body weight and a little space!
