Start a home DIY project
Why not use the extra time to achieve something at home like paint a room, frame those holiday shots or get artistic.
For those with a creative flare, why not get accredited and enrol into one of Bendigo TAFE’s design courses such as graphic design or visual arts.
Go green and get active in the garden
For those with gardens, we suggest trying your hand at a veggie patch, those without gardens can give a balcony or windowsill herb patch a go.
Students enrolled in Bendigo TAFE’s horticulture courses, agriculture courses and landscape courses worked with Guide Dogs Victoria on this amazing sensory garden at the 2019 Melbourne Flower and Garden Show.
Why not try your hand at your own backyard or balcony sensory garden!
Set personal goals and stick to them
Whether your goal is to work your way to 100 sits up each morning, make the perfect soufflé or ace your vet nursing course, you can do it from the comfort of your home. Just make sure to set goals you’re serious about, dedicated practice times, and commit to them.
Catch-up with friends online
The best way to overcome self-isolation is to not actually get too isolated. Pick up the phone and give your friends and family a call, or better yet arrange a social hour with a group of friends on Skype or Face time.
We also recommend online study sessions with your fellow students, so whether you’re chatting homework with the VCAL crowd or talking business with your Diploma of Management friends, there are tonnes of mental health benefits to staying social.
