Try these tactile experiences

Getting tactile with it...

It's easy to get caught up in a world of laptops and phones, especially when you're stuck in your bedroom. As well as trying physical sports and mental exercises like mindfulness, you could also stay active with some new tactile experiences.


Get cooking

This valuable life skill will help you for many years to come. If you're not used to cooking or baking, the BBC's Good Food Student Recipes website is a great place to start.

You might also want to get adventurous with Rachel Ama's vegan cooking tutorials or Chef Ricardo's Caribbean cooking tutorials.


Indoor gardening

Growing plants and indoor herbs can take some practice, and can help you to feel more connected to nature. As you'll see from this YouTube video about mung beans, mung beans germinating into beansprouts don't even need a plant pot!


Try painting

You don't have to be a master artist to enjoy the physical experience of running a paintbrush or pen across paper. If you're not sure where to begin, why not find some inspirational quotes, and work them into a drawing, painting or sketch?
