50 Things to do when Lockdown goes Long-term (Part 6)

I’m trying something new: this is a LIVE blog post – that means I’ll publish five parts per day for 10 days.  If you haven’t already, start by checking out my original COVID-19 post then follow along with me on Instagram for daily updates!  Comments are SO welcome, what are you all doing these days?  Let’s brain pool. 

21. Sit outside (in a private yard or balcony) if you can

If you can, GO OUTSIDE. Do you have a yard? A balcony? Can you put on gloves and a face mask and walk once around the block? Around the outside of your house? How about a rural getaway or a walk up and down the driveway?

Adding just a few minutes of fresh air or outdoor footsteps in the safest way possiblechanges everything. In some cases this won’t be possible but if you have the chanceand it’s been deemed safe to do so don’t miss this priceless opportunity.

Alternatively, fresh air and sunlight when and where you can get it. Move your workspace under the window or wake up a bit earlier to take in the days’ first rays. Nap like a cat on the sofa in the sun. Take it all in (and maybe take some vitamin D?)

22. Independent Study

Sign up for a free online course (I’m trying one with Coursera) or watch a TED talk instead of Netflix.

23. Listen to a podcast


24. Make a Pinterest board for everything

Even better: vision boarding.

I loved doing this as a kids using piles of discarded magazines but if you aren’t a frequent subscriber Pinterest has your back.

25. Listen to music (just listen)

When was the last time you just listened to an album — first song to last without distractions? Maybe in the days of CDs? I love doing this
