We normally look forward to our bank holidays right? Well, this year it’s a little different. It just means another 4 days stuck in the house! What is the point!? What a waste!
Let’s not think like that. Let’s fill our bank holiday with the same amount of fun. Just make it ‘stay at home’ friendly…
Here’s 10 things RAID encourage you to do to lift your spirits this bank hol.
Whether it’s your daily walk out of the house, a HIT workout in the garden or Yoga from your front room. Squeeze a little exercise into the weekend so you don’t feel as bad binging on your Easter eggs!
2. Pamper Evening
Face masks, fake tan, hair wash, nails painted, fresh jammies and a glass of wine! What a perfect, feel good evening!
3. Write a letter to a relative
Do your grandparents or elderly relatives ever take the time to write you a letter? Do you just pick up the phone to answer all the questions they’ve asked?
This time, write them a letter. Make them smile and cheer their day up. In our generation a letter may mean nothing (or a speeding fine), but to them it means everything and they haven’t got a lot to look forward to at the moment.
4. Make your rainbow
If you haven’t already, create your rainbow for the NHS, Key workers and your Posties, just to show your support and say thank you. Stick it up in your window, on your postbox or draw it on the bottom of your drive with chalk. Get the kids involved and make everyones day better!
6. Mission Make-up bag
The job we all hate! Clean everything up in that make up bag and put your brushes in the sink to be shampoo’d and conditioned! Think of how much this will help out your skin too for that first night out of quarantine.
7. Fresh air
This bank holiday is full of sunshine! Enjoy your daily walk, your back garden or the fresh air from your window.
8. Catch up with your besties
FaceTime is a wonderful thing! Get a group FaceTime call on the go for a quiz night or contact all your besties separately! You’ve missed out on a lot of quality time together, make the most of the time you can share via the world of technology.
9. Listen to music
Create a playlist of your favourite songs as a family or on your own. Have it playing in the background and enjoy a sing song! All that time missed in the car with your fave songs blasting!? Make up for it this weekend in the sunshine.
TRY OUT OUR FEEL GOOD PLAYLIST ON OUR SPOTIFY! (LOVE RAID OFFICIAL)
10. Watch your all time favourite film
Disney+ is a wonderful thing! Watch your all time favourite music and grab a blast from the past! Matilda, Dirty Dancing, The Parent Trap? You decide!
