While They’re Watching the World Cup!

Starting this week the World Cup looks set to take over our lives for the foreseeable future, and lots of us are already suffering from a little football fatigue. With the World Cup being absolutely everywhere you look we all need a little space to relax and take a break from it, so whether you love the football or have already planned your escape routes from any match-related activities, we’ve put together a survival plan of 90 minute activities to help you unwind after, or during the matches.

Have a Pamper Session…

Wrap your hair up in a Hair Turban Towel, pop on a face-mask and have a long soak in the tub with some candles and music. Or invite some friends round and give each other mani-pedis and relax in big fluffy Egyptian cotton bathrobes in front of a good film (preferably one where no one kicks anything – at all) with a glass of something cold and bubbly.

Read a Book…

Or rather, all of those books you’ve had sitting on your bookcase for years because you’ve never got around to reading them. Or just watch the films and pretend you did…

Go to the Gym…

OK, so this isn’t the most fun thing to do, but think about it – you can work on your beach body, it’s a great way to de-stress and it will probably be empty because everyone will be out watching the matches! You’ll finally be able to try that weird machine you’re scared of using in front of people!

Go to the Beach…

Speaking of beach bodies, why not just take a weekend away on some remote shoreline, spread out your beach towel and relax with a good book, safe in the knowledge that no one is going to run past you with their shirt pulled over their head.

Do a Class…

“Oh, you were watching football last month? I was learning French/Origami/Krav Maga…” you’ll say smugly as you take down a potential attacker with a beret you fashioned out of your knapkin.

Got any more ideas escaping the football? Let us know what you get up to when you’re not watching!
