Make the most of working from home

If you're now working from home, that means you've dropped your daily commute -- giving you extra time to play with every single weekday.

Think about it.

Even if you normally have just a 15-minute commute to and from work each day, this now frees up 150 extra minutes each week.

So you could try using that time to do something that boosts your mental wellbeing.

You could take up a new hobby, do some exercise, play with your children, start reading a new book, try journaling, take up drawing or just sit quietly with your thoughts.

The activity you choose doesn’t matter, what matters is that you pick something you really enjoy and feel refreshed by.
