21 Things To Do This Winter In Lockdown 3.0

If you’re like me, stuck in a national lockdown (how’s everyone feeling about this?) and looking for what to do for free (with the exception of a few) in the wintery months, I’ve made a list below.

Go for a long walk
Have a bubble bath
Bake a cake
Have a movie marathon
Wear PJS all day and do nothing
Get takeaway afternoon tea
Drink hot chocolate
Read a book
Play a board game
Sit by a fireplace
Binge watch Netflix
Donate to a food bank
Buy a homeless person food
Make a home made soup
Drink mulled wine
Bake gingerbread men cookies
De-clutter your home
Give clothes to charity
Eat all the orange chocolate
Do Veganuary
Light all the candles

So, there’s 21 things to do in the winter in Lockdown 3.0. What do you enjoy doing in the wintery months? I’m really saddened by the lockdown news, but to keep me sane I’ve got my puppy and Joe who I’m really grateful for, going to do baking (yes, lots of banana cakes and lemon drizzle) and go on a long walk every day. It’s no different to what I’ve been doing since last March anyway.

Let’s get social. Follow me on Instagram or Twitter. I’m also on BloglovinPinterest and Youtube.

    So many great ideas! I’m in serious need of a declutter, and I guess I’ve got more time at home to do it now so no excuses haha xx

    I’ve been playing so many board games recently – am definitely trying to spend less time watching Tv. 🙂

    I feel safer in lockdown, so I’m very happy about it! What you’ve listed pretty much describes the last 2 weeks that my Hubby has been off work and it’s been heavenly! x

      Aww how nice. Tbh it’s no different for me, just staying at home like always. And occasionally going for a walk. x

    This is a great list of things to do <3 It is so much harder in the winter months than it was in the first lockdown. Ngl, I've mainly been busy with uni work but other than that I've been eating lots of yummy foods, face timing friends and drawing. As soon as my exams are over, I'm definitely going to be having an all-day PJ day! xx

      Thank you! That’s good to hear, keeping yourself busy is always great. Good luck with your exams, you’ll have something to look forward to once it’s all over. x
