40 Productive & Weirdly Satisfying Things You Can Do Whilst You Hibernate / Self Isolate

My friends, it seems like the whole world is in lockdown! It’s a crazy time right now and it’s easy to go stir crazy. Some people are in lockdown because their government have told them to be, others are in self isolation because they have the virus and some of us, are just hibernating because we don’t want to risk carrying it to those who might be badly effected by it.
