I’m So Lonely, I could Die, Thanks COVID-19! (1) By Dr. Michael Brooks
Yep, we heard the news correctly, another three weeks in a lock-down, or self-confinement. I know some of you are going crazy being at home for the last two weeks. You can only watch so much television or read so many books. Let’s face it, we are in a pandemic and for many of us we have no clue on how to manage our downtime. For many, just sitting in a chair and wondering what’s going to happen the next several weeks is not a good place to be.
If you’re Worrying about tomorrow it will rob you of today’s peace. If you’re glued to the television watching the news, you need to stop doing that and start being productive for you and your family. The news seems to be causing panic and fear with each and every broadcast. Maybe it’s time to start planning some work projects and fun things to do for you and the family.
OK, so what kinds of things are you talking about Dr. Mike? If you live by yourself, start doing things you have dreamed about doing but didn’t have time for it. You certainly have time to do it now, if you’re in a lock-down situation. Maybe you’ve wanted to take up writing poetry, or writing a book. If you do, research on how to begin putting together an outline on google. This actually could be a great project for you. Research that and see what you can come up with. If you like learning about your family history, then do some research with Ancestry.com or MyHeritage.com. There are so many things that you can do. If you have projects around the home that need attending to, then, by all means, get a pad of paper and walk around the house and make a list of to “Do” things, and have at it. Maybe you want to start a diet plan with a bit of exercise. Don’t sit around the house and get depressed. You can do yoga classes online, you can go for walks with your family. There is so much to do while confined to your home or neighborhood.
Next week we will continue with this article, I’m So Lonely, I could Die, you’ll get some insights and suggestions for keeping busy with the family and not focused on the news and all the negativity that goes with it. We’ll get through this, all of us will. Count on it!
