As we self isolate we need to find activities to do while at home. I live in Atlanta where the mayor has announced a 14 day stay at home order so I cannot just decide to go out and wander around.
Today I thought I would share some of the things I am doing to keep myself from
I have been cleaning and organizing but I wanted something else to do. After all I live in a small apartment so there is only so much of that I can do.
Along with reading and streaming these are some of the things I am doing.
Monday I started a 21 day free medication experience from Oprah and Deepak called Hope In Uncertain Times. I find meditating to be very calming. It isn't too late to join in here.
There is no eating out so I am cooking and baking more.
I used to love to do jigsaw puzzles so I have ordered some from Eeboo. I ordered three of their Piece and Love puzzles. If you use code socialdistancing and buy two you will get a third puzzle free. Once the stay at home rule is lifted I will share with my daughters and they will share their puzzles with me.
I originally tried to order puzzles from Amazon, but they were sold out.
It is important to stay in close touch with families and friends so I will continue to FaceTime with my family (primarily Tessa who shoves her sister out of the room when we are on FaceTime)
Yesterday I met virtually with my new local peer group. Since we are unable to meet in person right now we used an app called Zoom to have a group meeting. This is a nice thing to do to help us keep from feeling so isolated.
I have been feeling like a slug as I haven't been able to do much exercising. I miss my chair yoga class so I have started Chair Yoga with Adriene on You Tube. You can find that here.
I am also going to try some of the Silver Sneakers workouts on You Tube here.
I have also added apps on my phone to brush up on my cribbage and french.
What are some of the things that you are doing keep both your mind and body active during this stressful time?
