Life Under Pandemic Lockdown

Let’s all take a deep breath, and just admit it. This Social Distancing thing, er um this physical distancing thing is depressing. And while we are all doing it for the greater good, it’s just not easy. Who doesn’t miss crowds? Hugs from friends, and attending a concert or movie? Taking the subway? Watching basketball during March Madness??

We leave every place like it’ the scene of a crime, with our gloves and sanitizer wipes. But at what point to we settle into this new normal? How do we get perspective?

The New Normal

So while we are in this new normal, we have to make some major adjustments. But let’s not be wasteful with the time that we have. Try and think of social distancing as an opportunity to learn some things. About yourself, who you are quarantining with, and perhaps taking a class or two online. And why not read a good book on being your best self? Let this time in isolation, be used for some personal discovery.

Reconnect With Friends And Family

Perhaps you never realized how much you missed a good old football game? And getting together with a friend and meeting up at a bar to watch the outcome together? Maybe it’s time to call that friend up and have a chat. Not just text, an actual phone call.

Mom and Dad get to hear your voice without that garbled “I am on the road” kind of chat. Sit down and check in with your loved ones.

Dressing Down Is The New Black

Got some fancy sweatpants? I do! And you know what? I am going to live in them. Now is the time to showcase your loungewear. (Around the house, anyway). And get super comfortable. Why not? Maybe even invest in lounge slippers. Chic!

At Home Spa

Face masks, yes. At home pedicures yes please! All of those I have been meaning to do scrubs, polishes and glows.. you glow girl, you glow.

Chat With Friends Online

I never do this, but hey let’s have an online chat with all our gal pals and toast to our next time together. Virtual hugs, real time giggles and carafes of wine.

At Home Projects

Officially no excuse.. just get those tasks done. Maybe even rearrange the place while you spring clean. So clean out those messy drawers, and get those mentionably, unmentionables organized. Even purchase some of those ultra domestic organizers. You’ll feel better when you feel accomplished.

Stream Your Workouts And Lose The Commute

You will feel so much better moving your body without having to drive to your workout. There are so many great fitness classes online. So pick your favorite and get moving.

Check Out Some Good Online Courses

Cooking, coding, calculus? No better time than now to get take that online course. Or perhaps learn a foreign language. I think it’s ok to talk to yourself in another language. Oui.. it is.

Perspective

Whatever you decide to do with your time in quarantine, just do it with a kind heart and a positive mindset. This is a time to be grateful, and a time for a personal reset. -Be safe and stay healthy.
