With the country adapting to a new socially-distanced way of life, establishing and maintaining a healthy routine has never been so important. As well as minding our physical and mental health, it's important that we fit some fun into our days!

With this in mind, we have pulled together some of the most positive, creative, helpful, interesting, and entertaining activities to keep you going over the coming weeks.

1. Party with Jenny Greene
To keep the spirits up over the Bank Holiday weekend, 2FM will broadcast recordings of live performances by Robyn, The National as well as Irish artists Roisin Murphy, Inhaler and Sorcha Richardson.

From 6pm to 6am this Saturday night (2nd May), Jenny Greene will present a 2FM Electric Disco. Starting with her own live set from 6 to 9.40pm, she will then play a recording of herself and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra live in the 3 Arena in 2017 from 9.40pm to 11pm. 

From 11pm there will be another Bank Holiday special: "20 Years of The Best of 2FM's Late Night Sessions" staying with you until 6am.

2. Queen of Captivity

3. Sit front row

The show will be streamed from models' houses exclusively to YouTube, with all funds raised will go towards coronavirus research through the amfAR Fund to Fight Covid-19.

5. Watch Normal People
If you haven't watched Lenny Abrahamson's adaptation of Sally Rooney's hit novel, you're one of the few left in the country! Get on the bandwagon and watch the first two episodes on the RTÉ Player now. A word of warning though - avoid watching it with your parents at all costs. You'll thank us later.

6. Listen to Louis
Much like the rest of us, documentary filmmaker Louis Theroux has been staying safe by staying home over the last number of weeks. Unlike us, however, he has bypassed making obscene amounts of banana bread in favour of starting a podcast whereby he tracks down some of the high-profile people he's been longing to talk to. In episode one of Grounded, Louis speaks with his friend and 'rival' Jon Ronson.

8. 5 days 5 ways
Sustainable fashion icon and 2fm presenter Tara Stewart is challenging her followers to join her in a '5 days 5 ways' challenge. This week, Tara will be wearing an eyecatching pink blazer styled in five different ways in the hopes that her stylish efforts will encourage people to play around with what they have in their wardrobe, rather than shopping for fast fashion.

9. Try out a TikTok trend
When it comes to telling us to eat "tasty" things, the Internet talks a big game. More often than not, foodie hacks, tricks, and gimmicky recipes end up disappointing and sad. However, we have found that the one-pan egg sambo and the Dalgona coffee are well worth a try.

10. Make the most of your walk
For many of us going for a walk means lining up some podcasts, getting the headphones in, and hitting the pavement, but what if we left the distractions behind? In this episode of You OK?, coaching psychologist and former UN peacekeeper Hugh O'Donovan discusses the benefits of mindfulness and how we can bring it into our 2km walks.
