Isolation Recommendations from the Women Connect team.
It's easy to get lost in the hundreds of recommendations flying around at the moment. To make it easier for you, we've put together a short list of books and podcasts for you to get stuck into during lockdown.
Homegoing - Yaa Gyasi
Calm The F*ck Down - Sarah Knight
The Sun and her Flowers - Rupi Kaur
How To Weep in Public - Jacqueline Novak
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
We thought it would be nice to start a conversation about what we're all currently doing with our time... Alex: I've completely rediscovered my passion for poetry and creating visual art, I'm doing lots of writing and painting. I've been playing a game with my friends called 'Creativity is Courage', whoever you're playing with gives you a word and you have to use it to birth a poem in ten minutes! Becky: I've been spring cleaning. I've bagged up anything I want to take to charity when we are out of isolation and other stuff I want to recycle or throw. I recommend decluttering as it gets your body moving, endorphins going and clears your head. Sian: My activity has been sequin art (honestly guys, have a go! Cannot recommend enough). Check it out here.
