Take up a hobby, CWA branch suggests
The Woy Woy branch of the Country Women's Association is suggesting residents take up a new hobby during lockdown.
"Lockdown can be distressing," said branch president Ms Jane Bowtell.
"The uncertainty and stress means many of us are struggling with feelings of isolation and overwhelm.
"We may find that we have more time on our hands, but aren't exactly sure how to spend it. "There is only so many movies you can watch, or social media you can scroll through, before it becomes tedious," said Ms Bowtell.
"Now may be the perfect time to pick up a hobby," she said.
"It could be something you've tried before but didn't have the time to pursue, or a brand new pastime.
"Thanks to the internet you can easily engage in most hobbies from home.
"Equipment can easily be ordered online and there are countless instructional videos for almost anything."
