Top Things To Do After Lockdown

Top Things To Do After Lockdown

Hey guys!

Hope you’re all doing well and are staying safe.

It may seem like the pandemic has been around forever – but it’s got to end sometime, right? Things may not seem normal for a while, but with groups of 6 people now able to meet in the UK, we might actually be able to have a relatively enjoyable summer – although travelling and attending concerts/festivals won’t be feasible any time soon…

There are so many things you’ll be looking forward to once it’s safe to do so – from hugging your friends and family to returning to your favourite restaurant. However, it’s also important to keep looking after yourself, and as I’ve mentioned below, you should try to book an appointment with your doctor and dentist as soon as possible.

I’m sure some of you have been thinking about what you want to do once lockdown is lifted. Here are some of the things you should prioritise:

  1. Visit friends and family

Chances are one of the first things you want to do after lockdown is see your friends and family. While apps like Skype, Facetime and Zoom have enabled us to chat and see our friends and family from home, nothing compares to spending time with them in person. I’ve already mentioned that you can see up to 6 people from other households outside if you’re from the UK, but other counties still have stricter lockdown so this isn’t possible yet. I’m sure it won’t be too long before we’re able to meet people inside again.

  1. Get your health checks

If you haven’t been to the doctor recently – perhaps because you don’t want to risk getting the virus – it’s a good idea to schedule an appointment as soon as you can. As well as getting any jabs or general health checks, you should also get your personal health check. Sometimes conditions aren’t always noticeable, and if left untreated, they could escalate into something serious. Getting personal health checks  can be daunting, but appointments only take 5 minutes, and it’s better to be safe than sorry.

  1. Go on a day trip

One thing I personally can’t wait to do this simmer is visiting more of the UK. I’m a bit wary of travelling abroad, but I would like to explore some different areas of London (such as Dulwich and Richmond) and visit another city (Bristol is high on my list) or seaside town (most likely Lyme Regis or Brighton). I’d also love to take photos at Virginia Water and Mayfield Lavender Farm.

  1. See your dentist

No one likes visiting the dentist, but like personal health checks, it’s one of the first things you should do after lockdown. Looking after your teeth is vital for ensuring that you don’t get cavities or gum disease. In the meantime, continue brushing your teeth twice a day and floss every evening.

  1. Keep social distancing

Unfortunately, the virus isn’t going to just magically disappear overnight, so it’s important to keep social distancing as much as possible. Clubs and pubs are likely to open up again within the next few months, but I’d advise you to avoid them if you can. Large gatherings are hotbeds for infection, and you don’t want to risk your health and that of your loved ones for one night that you probably won’t even remember. Also, keep any face masks and make sure you have a good supply of soap and medicine, as you never know what will happen in the future…

  1. You’re right. Video calls and texting is quite “one-way”. Seeing in person is way fun. But solid tips anyways especially the social distancing.

    But I wonder if I’d keep that if I see a pal of mine lol.

  2. Thanks for sharing this! I cannot wait to get my health checks post-lockdown, I’m finding it really heave wrecking that I’ve had to put off scheduled appointments. And yes please everyone carry on social distancing

  3. I can’t wait to go in day trips! Bristol is such a nice place too 🙂 x

  4. I can not wait to go on day trips and travel and meet friends but it’s also important to not neglect our health. Probably need to schedule that dentist appointment now haha x

  5. I can’t wait to see my nieces and nephews again. Video chat is great, but it’s just not the same… I want to see them in person, hug them, play with them. We usually make a trip up to see them in the spring (my family lives about 6+ hours away) and didn’t get to this year due to the lockdown. Now we’re looking at possibly missing our summer visit too if regulations don’t lighten up a bit… It’s been FAR too long and they grow too much between visits as it is!

    I’m planning on visiting the dentist as soon as I can – a filling that I had back in February has come loose and I can only eat on one side of my mouth, sob. But seeing friends and family is also top of my list 🙂 Lisa

  10. Looking forward to what we will be able to do again is a lovely thought. I can’t wait to see my family. Going on a day trip will be lovely too.

    Keep social distancing is top of my list! Well a little!

    I can’t wait to just feel a bit more normal. My Dad lives alone so was able to join our bubble. It felt amazing to have him inside our home, even if we did still keep our distance.

    Enjoy your list x

  12. Lovely post! I cannot wait to start going on day trips again!
