Norwich City defender Ben Godfrey feels that professional football's current suspension because of Covid-19 is similar to a post season holiday.
But the England Under 21 International is determined not to let the time during the current break go to waste, as he waits for the Premier League to return.
So far it's been a combination of staying fit, resting, and keeping himself entertained - games of the football simulation FIFA 20 with Norwich teammates just an example.
And while uncertainty reigns on when Norwich can resume their season Godfrey's making sure he'll be ready.
Godfrey admits time away from the usual day-to-day at their training base at Colney near Norwich is proving difficult to handle, despite the positives of staying at home.
The Canaries have already shown their support to those in the Norfolk community impacted by Covid-19, collectively donating £200,000.
But criticism has come the club's way after deciding to furlough non-playing staff under the government's Coronavirus Job Retention scheme.
And while the debate rumbles on in the media over whether Premier League players should take a pay cut, Godfrey feels he and his teammates are in a difficult position while talks are going on.
It's a month since Norwich booked their first quarter final in the Emirates FA Cup since 1992, beating Tottenham on penalties after their 5th Round tie finished 1-1 after extra time.
While a return to professional football seems a long way away from now, Ben Godfrey's hoping the time disappears quickly once they know it's safe to resume playing again.
