Crazy huh? The COVID-19 quarantine has literally shut down the world. This is not the first time. Take the story of Sir Issac Newton, a country boy studying in the big city of London when the Bubonic Plague hit the town. Sent home from college for two years, the then Master Newton, began his work to develop calculus and while musing in the garden had the theory of gravity fall on him.
Plus after all this hand-washing, if you have seriously chapped hands, scroll to the bottom and see how we can help.
Social distancing is far from new. When Newton got sent home in 1665, it was social distancing that saved him from perishing. It was also the freedom to think and pursue “the wonder years” as he called them which gave the world his top discoveries.
What is COVID-19 freeing you up to do these next few months? Here are a few ideas.
Reconnect! Reconnect with your family–spend time cooking, eating and playing together.
Spark Joy! Marie Condo’s method of cleaning is actually fun and cathartic. Now is the time to create space. Use COVID-19 as a way to increase the size of your house not decrease it. You can even do it with kids.
Reach out! Write a letter, make a phone call, send a video to someone you have not talked to in years. It will not seem strange now in this time of rest to touch base with a long lost high school buddy or childhood friend. They have time and so do you! This time hop app can make sharing memories with loved ones simple.
Rest! Hello, COVID-19 calling, all your social obligations are canceled for the next month. It is very clear that solid sleep and resting builds the immune system.
Create! What have you been wanting to start but just not had time to do? A blog, a podcast, a book, a new technology or a scientific experiment?
Finish! Yes, you can finish that painting project or remodel project or sewing project you have put off. Haul out all the items you stored and get to work.
Gratitude! If you woke up this morning, you have something to be grateful for today. Make a list, practice it on the people with whom you are quarantined. It will lighten everyone’s mood. Try this Gratitude app if your close-knit quarantined family is now getting on your nerves.
Make a fort! What do kids do when there is nothing to do? They make forts in the living room, mud pies in the yard, turn sticks into swords, have sock fights. You need to turn off the news and go play.
Remote Game Night! Get your friends together to play games, even if you can’t be in the same room. Everything you need to know plus games to play are right here.
Cook! Now you have time to cook, so do it–maybe teach the kids, too. Here are something fun 3 ingredient dinners.
