We’re all in this together. Whether you’re self-isolating, social distancing or just plain WFH, here’s some tips to keep you sane and occupied during the pandemic.
- Create a shared playlist on Spotify and ask all the people you love to add a few songs to listen to and make this moment of melancholy be more upbeat and fun.
- Keep a quarantine journal: it will be “interesting” to read it again in a few years. (You can story-tell it to your future children about one day!)
- Make a list of all the tasks you’ve got coming up in the next few months, and try to schedule them: tarot reading, root canal with your dentist, blood tests. You may not know when it will be possible to book them, but at least you’ll have a clearer
picture of the situation. Gotta love the semblance of control!
- Watch series, movies, and even the series and movies you wouldn’t watch in normal days. Who knows, those could be good.
- This is something that we used to avoid at all costs, but now, since we do have the time, Transfer photos from your phone to an external hard drive. This is your chance to banish the “full memory” warning for at least a month.
- Call, Video call, FaceTime, Whatsapp call your family, parents, children, friends. Get back in connection with your high school friends, or even… an ex. (No, we are kidding on that last bit, please don’t do that).
- Train your dog to do some tricks. Yes, your pets are probably the happiest knowing you will be home for an indefinite period of time!
- Read those books that you have been buying but never really got the chance to finish. On that note, also read all the newsletters in your inbox and sort them out. Unsubscribe to those you never wanted to read.
- Read Marie Kondo’s book – The Life-changing Magic of Tidying up and start tidying up accordingly. We swear the outcome of this activity is full of satisfaction.
- Since we live in Bali, and Bali is the home for Yogis, a Yoga from home every morning would be a lovely thing to do, don’t you think?
We hope all of you are at home, safe and healthy. We know some of us are young and have great immune systems, but let’s be considerate to the elderly and help them by self quarantining ourselves. Sending you much love from the Island of Gods.
