Staying in? RUSSH rounds up the best ways to kill time

Staring down the barrel of an extended home-stay? Stay sane with the best of our RUSSH Round-Ups.

It’s an interesting time to be alive in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon, and severe measures are underway to contain the spread of the virus. Social distancing, hand washing and self-isolation are all strongly advised or government mandated, and working from home is increasingly common.

Should you find yourself in a lockdown situation, we’ve compiled the best of our RUSSH Round-Ups for staving off the cabin fever.

Reading lists for a holiday at home

For those who complain of never having enough time to read, this one is for you. With the grapevine news of a potential lockdown close on the horizon, and without sounding too much like Carrie Bradshaw, forget the chickpeas – we’re off to the bookstore to stockpile all those novels we’ve been meaning to get through (don’t actually forget the chickpeas, great things can come from them). Check in on some of our favourite reading lists courtesy of Matilda Dods, Andréa Tchacos and our creative community to keep you going until you’re allowed back into the wild.
