How do you keep yourself busy during lockdown? Do you watch TV and stream movies, work in the garden or spend time with the family?

Well, if it's a work day, I have been working, maybe it will quieten down, but hasn't yet. If a weekend day, so far nothing different, work in yard and such.

Been working non-stop, client's year-end is our busiest time of the year.
Doesn't help that internet is super slow, or their VPN is super busy :)

I am working from home during the week which keeps me busy as we have a lot on the go at the moment. Otherwise time is spent on house chores, some house DIY, time with my girlfriend, keeping our puppy busy, a bit of TV, meditating, some semblance of staying active, etc.

Beyond that, Warcraft 3, some XBOX, reading, working in the garden, building a braai and playing cricket.

Working fro home weekdays. Very quiet so not always all that busy. In between work I spend my time on here on MyBB. Otherwise after hours and weekends I will be either gaming (XB1) or watching my kids game or watch Netflix or YouTube.

Yesterday picked up a Terry Pratchett book (Thief of Time) which I have had for many years and never read. So far 23 pages into it.

Drawing, reading, making silly videos, play some music.
Working - waking up normal workday time and getting on with things where possible.
Talking to myself, talking to other people via whatsapp etc.
Growing some sprouts and microgreens - playing around with different soil combo's for the greens.
Keeping the place clean.
Wearing the same pants for 3 days.

I like living alone, not so much when I can't go out or anything. Gonna be loopy next week.

I'm trying to balance it all out.
Working from home but escaping to virtual reality for most of the day. Netflix/Youtube/ getting some sun in between it all. Interfacing with the wife now and then too.

I'm losing my goddamn mind!
