We’ve been lucky enough to be allowed to exercise outside our homes for a 3-hour window in the mornings from 6:00 - 9:00. Some people are loving the freedom, but others don’t want to risk it. And we don’t blame them at all.

Even though we’re celebrating Mother’s Day in Lockdown this year, it doesn’t mean you can’t turn on the charm and let your mom know how much you care! It might be a little more challenging if you’re not locked down in the same house as your mom, but with a little bit of effort and creativity, it can still be a special day for a very special lady!

We don’t know about you, but we’re struggling to get out of bed a little more every morning as we crawl closer to winter. The days are already noticeably shorter and cooler and we can’t think of anything we’d rather do than get cosy on the couch with a steaming cup of hot chocolate.

Since we’re on lockdown and disinfecting everything in sight, we thought it a good idea to remind you to clean your wallet and the cards in them as well. These small plastic items in your purse could be harbouring harmful bacteria at the best of times and it’s more important than ever to keep your cards clean.

Following the lockdown extension announcement just before the Easter long weekend, we thought it’s a good idea to give you some things to keep busy with these extra two weeks.

Just a week after the COVID-19 virus was declared a National State of Emergency in South Africa, President Ramaphosa addressed the nation again to announce a nation-wide lockdown as of Thursday 26 March for 3 weeks.

Even before the current lockdown, some of us were lucky enough to have found ourselves working from home to help stop the spread of the coronavirus and to help #flattenthecurve. Have you found your groove yet? There’s plenty of advantages; an extra hour in bed and not behind the steering wheel, no dress code, unlimited coffee and snacks, but it does have its challenges too.

Please do not panic, but please be careful! If all of us take the necessary precautions, whether you are at risk or not, we can #FlattenTheCurve together.
