Grip StripsExercise

Exercise is a great way to pass the time. You could wrap Tenura anti-slip grip strips around dumbbells to make sure they do not slip out of your hands. Tenura grip strips also make the weights more comfortable to grasp. Keeping up your fitness levels will also help to maintain your wellbeing, as it releases endorphins, which is a chemical your brain produces to relieve stress and make you feel happy. Staying fit and happy is vital for health.

Drawing and Writing

cutlery grip penTenura cutlery grips allow you to slide a pen or paintbrush into the opening to use as a writing aid or drawing aid. Adult colouring books, sketch pads and puzzles can be great for relaxation as many find them therapeutic. No matter your interests, there is a colouring book out there for you. If you do not want to be confined by lines, then a sketchbook can be your release of energy. You can paint and draw in the sketchbook. You could also turn the sketchbook into a scrapbooking project which makes use of all your favourite family photos and can be an incredibly creative activity. Puzzles help to keep the brain active. An all-time favourite is Sudoku, but of course, there are crosswords. These brain teasers can keep you entertained for hours.

Writing is another outlet for your brain. You can use your imagination and transport yourself to another world. There are plenty of guides on the internet that can help you improve your skills. Pens slide into the cutlery grips and provide the user with a larger area to grasp. They also add weight to the pen, which can help give the user more control.

Board games

Non Slip FabricIf you are living with others during self-isolation, you can use Tenura non slip fabric or the Tenura anti-slip table mat under board games to keep them in place. It is annoying during a heated game when somebody knocks the table and the board shifts.

There are many board games available on the market to suit all interests. For example, word games that use your language skills and imagination, mathematical games and tactical games which require you to be a step ahead of the other players. If your family doesn’t have a competitive streak, then there are cooperative board games that require communication and teamwork, these types of games should also avoid rivalry.

Baking

Jar OpenerFind a great recipe or use one passed down through generations. This activity is rewarding as you have some tasty cakes or biscuits at the end. You can get your family involved or do this on your own for a bit of solitude. There are plenty of our living aids you can use when baking; for instance, the Tenura silicone jar opener can be used to twist lids off easily. The jar opener is perfect if you are making the classic Victoria Sponge and need aid in opening strawberry jam. Tenura table mats can provide a non-slip surface under mixing bowls, which help to keep the bowl in place as you are mixing ingredients.
