Struggling with how to keep everyone entertained while staying at home?
Don’t worry, if you haven’t already got your creative head on, we’ve done the job for you and broken down some of the things that are currently trending and keeping people sane at home. From home workout videos, to learning time with the kids, life indoors doesn’t need to be all that bad.
Check out some of our top recommendations below.
Home workout classes
Bring the Yoga studio to your living room with ‘Adriene 30 Days of Yoga Challenge’, keeping your mind motivated and giving you a goal that will keep you busy for the full month. Increase your strength, flexibility, and balance during this 30-day challenge. Yoga is also great for calming the mind as it teaches you breathing techniques and guides you carefully through each posture.
Exercise classes on the big screen are a hot topic right now, but there’s one that has stolen our hearts and even broken the Guinness World Record for most watched live stream workout video on YouTube. That’s right, you guessed it – it’s Joe Wicks aka The Body Coach.
With his goal to help keep the nation fit while staying at home, he’s released a series of workout videos that are suitable for all ages. You’ve probably all heard about PE with Joe Wicks, right? Hosting online workouts for children each day at 9am, this is great for getting your kids exercising a few times throughout the week. And what’s more, all the money raised through adverts on his channel have been donated to support the NHS.
But don’t worry you can get your fitness fix in too, as the fitness guru has work out videos suitable for everyone – whether you’re a beginner, elderly or a fitness fanatic, Joe’s got you covered. Simply switch on your Hisense TV, click the YouTube app and select your perfect work out video.
Be at ease when home-schooling straight from your Hisesne TV. YouTube learning videos and educational TV shows are the perfect assistance to keeping your child’s brains sharp while unable to attend school. With streaming services such as Netflix, Prime Video, BBC iPlayer and YouTube, you’ll be stuck for choice for the best TV shows for educating your children.
For example, there’s Planet Earth for Science and Nature on BBC iPlayer, Horrible Histories on Prime Video and iPlayer, Go Jetters on Netflix for Geography and Odd Squad on Netflix for an engaging Maths lesson with Agent Oscar.
We’re sure we all love our little rascals, but we think it’s safe to say we could all do with a break from time to time. With Hisense TVs you have a wide selection of streaming options, and the VIDAA U Smart TV OS let’s you switch effortlessly between them. Enjoy all your favourite on demand entertainment with Netflix, Prime Video, Freeview Play and Rakuten – giving you everything you need to keep your home-team entertained.
And don’t worry if your children are slightly older and more of a console gamer, there’s endless gaming possibilities with the Hisense TV range. Gaming is hotter than ever right now, with as many people searching ‘gaming’ in google search as they do in the weeks before Christmas.
Enjoy gaming in 4K with the B7500 and U7B. When you enable Game Mode on your Hisense TV, it strips away the processing that the screen does to the image to get it from the source to the screen panel as fast as possible. This means there’s less input lag and a better gaming experience all round.
Good things come to those who bake
Improve your cooking skills and get inspired by programmes such as the ‘Great British Baking Show’, or ‘Great British Bake Off’ available to stream on Netflix, and learn new tasty recipes to try out with your ChefPro.
The ChefPro is not only a new stylish addition to your kitchen but it also offers features such as Even Bake, which is specially shaped to heat food evenly and cook perfectly. Preheat Assist, which preheats your oven in just 6 minutes. And the best feature of all, Pyrolytic Self-Clean – making it easier than ever to clean up afterwards.
Stuck with what to make with the ingredients you have left in your fridge freezer, why not check out ‘BBC Good Food’s 5 Ingredients or Less’ and discover new recipes that are both easy and exciting.
Whatever your days at home look like, why not make the most of it!
