It’s the month that feels like it’ll never end – but, our list of things to do might be able to change that.
January is always a particularly boring month.
After an events-filled December, the post-Christmas and new year’s high comes to a halt in January, with many of us hibernating for the month and wondering what the rest of the year will turn out like.
This often leaves us feeling bored as our social life remains pretty scarce. And with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and rise of the Omicron variant, more of us are spending time at home, bored, with not a whole lot to do but watch TV.
Luckily, there are many events and activities to take part in online to keep you occupied this month – and we’ve shared 9 recommendations for you to consider this month.
Take in a virtual museum
Virtual museums rose in popularity during the first year of the pandemic and continue to be accessible to many across the world.
If you’re looking to enjoy a virtual stroll of some of the world’s most iconic museums, check out the virtual British museum tour and get lost in all the art and history.
Wordle is the game everybody is talking about and we’re obsessed with it. The premise of the game is simple: all you have to do is guess the ‘Wordle’ of the day (a random five-letter word) in under six guesses.
While it sounds pretty basic, the game has captured the minds of many and is sure to keep you occupied.
