Four Home Entertainment Ideas To Try While In Lockdown


You’re probably very familiar with the current state of the nation: the lockdown has been extended for ANOTHER TWO WEEKS. Granted, the first few mornings were greeted with late snoozes, breakfast in bed, followed by pleasant chats with the family and some series binges. Now as we enter the second stage, tempers are starting to flair and cabin fever is fast settling in. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Here are some entertainment ideas to make the lockdown a lot more bearable.

A Virtual Get-Together

What are the first things that you associate with a get-together? Music, games and a ton of fun with friends, right? Well, since going out is out of the question, why not bring the party to you?

Google Hangouts is proving to be quite the hit during lockdown. The app allows you to engage with up to twenty-five friends at a time. Google Hangouts enables “shared experiences” with many playing games like Charades and Pictionary or simply watching TV together.

So, while social distancing is still very much a reality in the outside world, socialising, connecting and creating memories with friends and family from the comfort (and safety) of your couch is very much a possibility.

Nothing Beats Quality Telly Time

Arguably one of the most used items in your home is the TV, made even more apparent when your access to the outside world is cut off. We spend hours mesmerised at character developments, dumbfounded by intricate plot twists or feverishly pushing buttons on gaming controllers to reach that coveted checkpoint; all the while still managing to sneak in a few snacks as we go.

However, there is one thing to make this experience even sweeter. The LG OLED TV series is renowned for its spectacular visual and sound technology, which makes for the perfect cinematic and gaming experience. Complete with its virtually no motion blur feature, it’s the ideal screen for gaming and watching sports. Essentially, it’s an all-in-one TV for movies, series binges and gaming marathons to help beat any type of boredom during the wait for freedom.

There are many exciting workout options online. More and more content creators, studios and influencers are posting their simple home workout routines online for free to help keep people fit, healthy and busy. Find your inspiration and get moving!
