We, as humans, are social animals. All of our daily activities revolve around other people, be it at work, with friends and family, your partner and / or kids.

Unfortunately, the current environment has changed these activities completely. We are being forced to work from home, social distance from people and to self-isolate and for many of us this is a true challenge. 

This is an unprecedented time, impacting people in varying ways on an international scale. Many of us are feeling afraid, anxious, worried and overwhelmed not only for ourselves and our businesses but for our families and friends all over the world.

We thought we could create something simple and special for you, your colleagues, your family and your friends to do each day for 21 days to keep motivated in this COVID 19 crisis.

Introducing our 21 Day Challenge! Who is up for it?

Day 1

Write a letter to yourself expressing how you are feeling. Let it all out!

Day 2

Plant something and take care of it every day, you may even want to talk to it (yes people talk to plants)

Day 3

Wake up early in the morning, wear a mask and go for a run or brisk walk on the beach

Day 4

Learn something new, something you have always wanted to learn but have never had the time or the energy for

Day 5

Organise an online craft session with your friends.  Paint a mug, build a castle with playing cards, race each other in online sudoku
