While we enjoy spending time within the four walls of our home, we asked creators how they are keeping themselves entertained and why you should stay at home. Hannah Witton chats to us…
How are you spending your time while social distancing?
Hannah Witton: Working, reading and walking mostly!
What is your go-to activity when you need to switch off from the world?
Hannah: Going for a walk with a podcast or audiobook in my ears.
Am I the only one not playing animal crossing??

Do you have any tips for staying positive and healthy at home?
Hannah: Remember that you’re not alone and the whole country (and other countries) are experiencing the same thing, find things you like to do at home, sleep more if that’s what you want, video call your friends and family.
Can you recommend something we can do to relax at home?
Hannah: We’re currently making our way through the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney+ which, if you’re a superhero or MCU fan, would highly recommend. We’ve just watched Civil War and there’s so much more to go!
Just did a group chat & pub quiz with uni mates. We each came up with our own 10 point round and it was fun and silly and I would recommend it as an online activity for groups of friends 💛☺️

Why is it so important to follow the government guidance?
Hannah: Flatten the curve! Not overwhelm the NHS! Save lives!
What advice would you give to anyone who might be struggling at the moment?
Hannah: Remember you’re not alone (in the experience, or in the struggle) and that this is temporary.
What content of yours can people enjoy during this time?
Hannah: I created a #StayHome playlist which includes videos I’ve been making in isolation but also previous videos that might be helpful during this time and are relevant to staying inside.
