Now that we are in state of emergency shutdowns, cancellations and advice to stay home as much as possible so that our health care system and providers have a fighting chance to keep on top of helping those most sick, how can we occupy ourselves, stay healthy and fit, and keep social contact going?
I'm just starting to think about this and realizing that the few hobbies I have all are sedentary or involve leaving home. So far I've
- Picked up more books to read
- Thought about pulling out my art colored pencils and trying drawing again or color the art coloring book I picked up
- Borrowed some jigsaw puzzles
- Thought about cooking and freezing some easy meals in case we both get sick
- Set up a Facetime call with our granddaughter and thought about who may need phone calls to help stave off depression
- Decided it is a good time to finally up my exercise especially since I just found out I need bunion surgery and need to be able to easily manage crutches for 1 to 3 weeks afterwards so need upper body strengthening. I won't be pursuing a Pilates studio right now so need to try some Youtube videos to start that. I can still go for walks and increase the distance too. I think our little community pool is still open but don't know if the locker room is so will check that out.
- The house could use a deep cleaning (boring!)
- I'd like to alter 2 pairs of jeans/slacks to make the legs narrower
- I could assume my club will meet in the fall and start figuring out what needs to be done to plan for the year
Let's share ideas! What are you planning or considering doing during this time of social distancing?
