I am trying a Coursera course from Yale called The Science of Well-Being. I have long been interested in the application of the psychology of happiness research. There are a couple of research based books I am considering too. The topic seems apprapro.
Connecting while Distancing - Already some friends are pushing to have small group meetings but sit far apart. I understand how these very extroverted people are struggling but I'm not going even though it probably would be safe. One member offered to hold a Zoom meeting instead but I don't think that will be accepted.
I realized the majority of us are going to get this eventually. The key is to not all get it at once especially when there is a shortage of supplies for health workers and patients in the US. Sigh.
Carrying On - Yesterday I was low energy and spent too much time on social media, sitting, and drinking coffee. Back with the program today. Skip this if daily activity lists are boring!
Exercise: 30 min. stretch dvd, lower body exercises and walked dog
Learning: Completed week 1 materials of The Science of Well-Being online course
Enjoyment: Put on a cheerful pink sweater as part of my Covid Cheerful Wardrobe Capsule! Played a new to me CD that was really energizing and fun (I Am The Blues, Willie Dixon). Enjoyed the dog walk immensely what with a glorious sky, slight wind and brisk temp making me feel fully alive.
Home: Cleaned our master bathroom while Hubby tried sealing yet another window where dirt blows in when winds are strong. He also cleaned that window sill and the shutters.
Dinner: Tilapia, spinach, carrots & corn muffins
