Relaxing Lockdown Activates

Stress during lockdown is pretty normal. I am sure many of you have had up and down days. When I am feeling like I am not in the right headspace, I look for things to cheer me up. These types of activities can be personal to your preference and the point is to find something that makes YOU happy. Someone else’s happy might not be yours and that is OK. I thought I would list some things that make me smile and lift my sprits for inspiration below.
