[5 THINGS] To Do Now That The Olympics Are Over

I don’t know about you, but we’ve spent the last two weeks glued to the television watching Olympics, Olympics and more Olympics! So this morning we’re left feeling a little glum and wondering how we will fill our time now. Well, here are five ideas:

1. Take up a sport:

So many of us have ironically not left our sofas for the past 16 days and yet suddenly feel inspired to take up a sport after seeing so much success. Well, why not cash in on that enthusiasm and take up one of the sports that took your fancy during London 2012. Handball is supposed to be having quite a rennaisance right now:

2. Read a book:

  1. I’m seriously going to miss the Olympics! But I guess I was still doing plenty of things while watching them (I was always either writing or at the gym!) so they didn’t disrupt my schedule too much.
