How to Spend Quality Time Indoors?
To all of you in our BSB community, we express our sincere support and solidarity and assure you of our assistance in the weeks to come.
We are building a bank of resources to support you during this holiday, including activities, courses to take, online museums to visit, fitness classes and so on. We know many of you will already have great resources to recommend and we encourage you to do so.
Holidays mean relaxation, experiencing new places, visits to museums or, why not, a good book on a sunny afternoon. We can still do this. Even now, it is important to allow ourselves to enter into the holiday mood.
We hope that the following recommendations will sweeten your days during the weeks to come and will create a holiday like feeling.
