What ways do you fill the gap when football is absent from your life?

During football's suspension last year, how did you deal with your mental health ie what activities did you do?

Well, not football but i was in a similar boat with a sport I love dearly too: ice skating. I haven’t been able to skate for almost a year now and at first, it made me kind of restless and annoyed. Finishing up my old unfinished drawings and artwork helped me a lot. If I really want to get up and move around I like to cook too.

Not much you can do if you’re like me and football is a massive part of your life. I spent the time i’d normally dedicate to watching live games split between watching my favourite old matches, and analysing recent games because i’m fond of the different tactics teams employ. That is literally all I did to fill the time during lockdown lol.

Dream about football
Pray that it will go back to normal soon
Distract myself
Find a new hobby
Sew
Paint or make something
Study something new and completely unrelated as well
Write a article about your own life experiences on the football pitch
Stay positive too
Teach young kids about the wonders of playing professionally
Make a few new friends
Research other things online
Sleep
Shower and care for your body (see my other tip below)
Learn a new instrument like the guitar for now
Drink a cup of beer
Recreate the experience at home
Keep a mood diary
Laugh
Eat often
Watch trashy tv (apart from football type shows)
Dream about football at night
Bake a batch of cookies
Make up a real story related to the pitch
Do some sort of helpful exercises to try to maintain your fitness level in the meantime
Smile
Reflect deeply on what being a football player means to you personally
Try to not worry about the future however
Type up a short article focusing on the very important life skills learned in football
Do lots of other things
See a therapist for a bit you can find one online

Just to clear: you are asking us how people can live without watching football matches in the stadiums locally? In that case, I can answer you that it works very well. I don't miss the matches at all.

Me too. It makes fun to cook a food you like, one of the most positive things someone can do in this pandemic.
