One of the possibilities of self-isolation is we won’t get enough exercise. Self-isolation doesn’t mean sitting on a couch all day binge watching everything on Netflix or gaming until your thumbs off. Exercise will help with your stress levels and hopefully keep you from having a heart attack.
Here is a list of at home work outs and yes, I’ve included YOGA! Did you really think I wouldn’t. Don’t be like that. I’ve also included exercises for kids. They need to keep moving too! Plus, you can do the exercises with them and make it a family workout!
Social distancing is preventing us from going to events. Since we can’t go to them, events are coming to us via livestreams! YouTube, Instagram and Facebook are generally the chosen platform, however, theatre and opera are also streaming from venues. I’ve provided a list below.
Thanks to all of the people who did panic shopping when this all went down a little over a week ago, many of us are struggling to find staples on the grocery shelves and are resorting to making meals with what ever is in our cupboard, fridge and freezer. This isn’t completely a bad thing, you finally get to use that can of heart of palm you bought a year ago. Why did I buy that again?
I’ve always had to be resourceful when it comes to cooking. I’ve been on my own since I was 18 and money has been hard to come by on many occasions, so I’ve had to be creative with food. I always managed and never went hungry thankfully. There have been a few times in our history where we were going through wars or The Great Depression and putting food in your cupboards was beyond desperate times. During those times, homemakers had to make due with what they could get their hands on. I’ve been researching some of these recipes and below is some of what I found.
If you have kids, this might be a fun thing to do with them!
Being stuck at home, a lot of us will being going stir crazy, if you haven’t already. Many are used to regular social gatherings or the freedom to go to a gallery, museum, theatre, movie theatre, or restaurant at will. When this is suddenly taken away, it can be depressing and make you feel completely isolated from the rest of the world. Though this isn’t quite the same as physically going there, and being there is always better, several places have created virtual tours. It is a great way to spend an hour and an amazing way to distract your mind for a while.
