Since we’re all going to be home a lot more I wanted to give all of you suggestions for how to combat being bored. Some of these are my ideas and some are found through a quick Google search. The ones I found from searching Google have links to click.
- Museum virtual tours: here are a list of 12 museums from around the world where you can take virtual tours. https://www.travelandleisure.com/attractions/museums-galleries/museums-with-virtual-tours The Smithsonian museum of natural history offers virtual tours as well. https://naturalhistory.si.edu/visit/virtual-tour Here’s another link for how to access more virtual tours: https://www.thrillist.com/news/nation/virtual-museum-tours
- Read: I’ll post a list of my favorite books in a future post
- Listen to music: I’ll post a list of my favorite artists in a future post
- Watch movies/TV shows: I’ll post a list of my favorite movies and TV shows in a future post as well
- Get outside weather permitting and take in the beauty of nature and the fresh air
- Exercise: if you can’t go to the gym you can find great workouts for all fitness levels on YouTube; I have a DVD with exercises that can all be done sitting. It’s called Sit and Be Fit. You can order it from Amazon or buy it on Prime Video if you or someone you know can benefit from it.
- Connect with those who matter to you a lot: phone calls/FaceTime/Google Hangout/Skype/texts
- Find recipes you would like to make
- Start a journal: this helps me make sense of things that are hard and don’t make sense. It always has.
As I think of other ways to help us (myself included) cope with these unprecedented times: I’ll post them here. Keep a positive attitude, y’all. We’re going to be okay. Be kind…overly kind. Help each other. Lift each other up. Encourage and support each other. If anybody needs to reach out to me, please do so. I’m in the process of setting up an e-mail for this blog. In the meantime: just comment on individual blog posts or send me a message on one of the blog’s social media accounts.
