5 Music Playlists For Every Self-Isolation Scenario



A lot has happened since the coronavirus pandemic hit...

Sandra from Liverpool briefly lost her beloved parrot Chanel. (She's an African Grey). But, after a nationwide search, we are pleased to say that Chanel was found safe and well.

In other news, a little birdie (not Chanel), told us that people are starting to get bored of the same old lockdown routine. So we asked the team at RateMyPlacement.co.uk to help out by sharing some of their favourite tunes.

Whack up the volume a notch or two and enjoy these FIVE playlists to get you through lockdown.


#1 WORKOUT PLAYLIST - Get up and moving

"Home workouts... everyone is doing them. And it's not just about improving physique. Regular exercise boosts serotonin, which makes you feel happier and improves your mental wellbeing.

But you don't have to do hardcore exercises to feel better. With the bangers in this list, you'll be saying goodbye to the plank and cranking up the sound... dancing is a LEGIT full body workout."
