5 Top Tips
1. Try something different: Volunteer! I'm sure you're feeling a strong sense of community whilst we're living in the wake of the Coronavirus. The phrase "We're all in this together" really rings true. So why not give something back to the community and volunteer? Places such as Trees for Life, located in the Scottish Highlands, welcome volunteers to help rewild the Scottish Highlands. Why not plant some trees and help fight climate change? https://treesforlife.org.uk/support/volunteer/
2. Learn a new skill: after the travel ban is lifted, you may want to learn something new and stretch your legs at your local community centre. Try yoga, enjoy a cookery course or sign up to a fitness group - it's a great way to get back into the swing of things. Find something that excites you and drive right in.
3. Set a goal. Don't research, research, research and then not act on it. The time now is to window shop and plan, set realistic goals for yourself; want to see Scotland? Want to explore Loch Ness? Want to try a new whisky? Get your Scottish bucketlist planned and set a date where you want to complete it by.
4. Don't stay in: So the travel ban has been lifted - don't stay on your sofa still binge-watching Netflix! It's not great for your mental or physical health. Don't fall back into old routines; get a new lease of life and make your time feel authentic and refreshing!
5. Explore: Travel is about doing different things, learning new ways of life and not always staying in your comfort zone. Get up, get out and explore your home turf! I personally can't wait to see the North Coast 500 and embrace the #staycation (I'm cringing as I'm typing it...)
