I'm currently in self-isolation and I know that many of us are feeling anxious/isolated, so I thought I'd share a really useful video by Purple Ella on coping with the Covid-19 pandemic:
Here are some tips for activities that have been keeping me busy while I self-isolate:
Also, some advice on how I'm helping myself stay healthy:
I hope some of these tips are helpful - stay safe and take care of yourselves.
Many of the changes feel scary and at times I feel sad.
I'm trying to be optimistic though. I can see some positives. There are less planes in the sky so the environment is benefiting.
The soap operas and sport won't be on TV soon and I can see a good side to that; a lot of people are addicted to TV and it can be a bad influence. Without things like that to hook them, more people might develop more mindful hobbies like reading, gardening or cooking.
People could become nicer. No knowing but it's a possibility. With no pubs or restaurants to go to, and socialising being limited to 2 people at a time maybe people will begin to appreciate talking with each individual more.
Just some thoughts running through my head.
It's really good to look for the positives, even though things are sad and scary. I'm hoping that people will become nicer and appreciate each other more too.
