Music to your ears

Plus, it’s a great opportunity to treat yourself to some new headphones. Want to go wireless?

Play it your way

You work hard, so why not play even harder? There’s plenty of games you can download on your smartphone – just check out the app store. Whatever you’re into, you’ll find something that suits you. If you prefer completely switching off from your phone, there’s no better time to treat yourself to a new console. Getting your hands on a handheld one means you can play anytime, anywhere. Great for gaming alone when you want to zone out or going against friends when you’re feeling competitive.


Work it out

Get your daily dose of endorphins. While a smartwatch can track your activity levels, calories burnt, heart rate and more, it’s hard to know which one to pick. But with plenty of smartwatches and fitness trackers to choose from, you’ll be able to find the best one to suit your needs. Don’t worry If you don’t have a smartphone. If you know someone with an iPhone, you can link an Apple Watch to their phone so you can still track what you’re doing.
