At the beginning of this week it was announced that the Spanish State of Alarm is to be prolonged until mid April. We’ve compiled a list of things to do during the lockdown.


Learn a new language or skill 

There are so many online courses and apps that make it easier to develop your languages. Whether you want to learn a new language or just want to brush up on your Spanish, apps such as Duolingo, Glossika and Rocket Languages are perfect.  

It is also a great time to learn a new skill. If you’re unsure of what you want to learn, head over to Udemy or Coursera for inspiration. YouTube is another great place to learn new skills such as coding and trading - it’s also free!


Start an exercise routine 

The gyms are closed… but that’s no excuse to stop working out! YouTube is a great place to find workouts and exercises that you can do at home - no gym equipment needed. Doing a little bit each day can be great for your overall health, especially when you’re stuck indoors. 



The lockdown means there is plenty of time to read new books. Head to Apple Books or Kindle to browse and download books to your smart device. Check out a range of fiction and non-fiction books for variety!



Get creative with TikTok 

There has been a huge increase in TikTok users and uploads since the Coronavirus outbreak. TikTok is a video sharing app where users upload short, creative videos that can be viewed by other users on the platform. Why not give it a try!



Spend quality time with family 

Nowadays we are all living fast-paced lives. The lockdown can be a time to slow down, relax and spend quality time with your family. There are loads of activities you can do around the house together such as re-arranging different rooms, cooking and baking, exercise routines, watch films and series on Netflix or Disney+, look through old photo albums, or play cards and other board games.
