Tips for keeping active and busy at home

Are you currently engaging in social distancing and wondering how to fill all the extra time at home? Fear not – we have listed our favourite things to do to pass the time!


Meditation is easy to do at home with help from apps like Headspace and Calm. It is believed that meditation can control stress and reduces anxiety.


Take time to yourself to get stuck into that book you’ve been meaning to read! Don’t forget, if you are a member of a public library in Ireland, you can get every book in digital form from the BorrowBox app.

Home Workouts

Working out at home can be just as effective as working out in a gym! There are hundreds of no-equiment workouts on YouTube that can guide you through. A favourite of ours is The Body Coach!

Stay Social

Use this down-time to video-chat with a friend you have been meaning to catch up with! Also, make sure to call elderly relatives and neighbours to check up on them during this time, and anyone else who is alone during this social distancing phase.

Get Fresh Air

Get out for a walk or run, making sure you can maintain an appropriate distance from others. If you have a garden, try do your home workouts out there!


Yoga is a total mind-body workout that combines strengthening and stretching poses with deep breathing and meditation or relaxation. Try Yoga with Adriene on YouTube!
