We are in the ‘ember months! It has been a tough year and it’s slowly coming to an end. We can’t wait for 2021 and all the goodies it will bring. And please, no tagging December as ‘Detty’; look at what that got us.

The big question is what are you doing with the rest of 2020? If you are young and seeking ways to expand, stay healthy and be an all-round chill ‘chap’ as you wait for the year to run out, there is always something to do. Always…

Here are five things that could help:

  1. Yoga/Meditation: What’s that thing everyone says – ‘problem no dey finish’? With all that has happened, you need to take care of your mind. It has become a trend for a reason. It works, and all you need is a quiet place, a mat and yourself. Finis!

  1. Free courses: Some of us will have gained all the weight for next year, and that’s okay. We are proud of all the extra folds. Food has been a fantastic distraction, but for those working and building careers, we can’t let that distract us from a key goal – career expansion.

The hustle and bustle continue with a vengeance, but you may not have another time like this – seize this time to attend some courses and grab some certificates!

  1. Training: Oh yeah, there are free online training that actually work! MTN Foundation is organising a free virtual ICT and Business Skills Training in partnership with Google, Oracle and  Cisco for a two-day training programme. The icing on the cake is that it’s free and virtual. Applications have begun and it’s really easy to get on board. Register on www.mtnonline.com/ictandbusinessskills


  1. Skill acquisition: Take advantage of the vastness of YouTube to learn skills that you would not have had the opportunity to learn. For instance, you could learn how to bake or DIY face masks. With that, you can increase your dexterity while having fun.

  1. Extra income: Being part of the MTN ICT Business skills will take you steps further to earning extra income. How about you upgrade your business venture and make more money. That will definitely be a good way to end the year.
