Five Fabulous Things You Can Do During The Coronavirus Lockdown

We have all heard about what you can or cannot do if you are elderly, over 70, someone with an underlying health condition, or a pregnant woman, or even if you are a healthy individual who does not wish to risk catching coronavirus. You can only leave your house: (1) To shop for basic essentials like food and medicines; (2) To travel to work when you cannot work from home; (3) To take one form of daily exercise outdoors, like taking the dog for a walk, either alone or with other members of your household, and (4) To access medical care. When you are out of your house, you must do social distancing. This means that you must not get too close to other people, and you must keep at least 2 metres away from everyone, especially if they are coughing or sneezing.

There are also other rules to follow, like wash your hands more frequently using the hand sanitizer, for more than 20 seconds; keep your hands clean; watch what you’re touching; and wipe down everything that you’ve touched. When you are out of your house, you must do social distancing. This means that you must not get too close to other people, and you must keep at least 2 metres away from everyone, especially if they are coughing or sneezing.

I describe below six fabulous things you can be getting on with during the 12-week lockdown.

Learn Yoga

You can start to teach yourself yoga. Log into you tube, and learn how to do all the different positions, which are called asanas. Yoga is very relaxing and it will benefit both your mental and physical health. It will help you to feel very peaceful mentally, and to help you cope with the anxiety and stress that you may be suffering from during this time of self isolation.

Learn French

You can start to learn a foreign language, such as French. You may have an old French text book which you could learn from; or you could log into you tube where there are videos to teach people vocabulary, consisting of lists of words; French phrases; and conversational French.

Clear your house of clutter

You can start to clear your house of clutter, if it is an absolute mess and full of useless junk. Take things slowly, one day at a time. Keep a plan and write down what order to do the rooms in. Perhaps just do an hour of this in the morning, and another hour in the afternoon, but create your own daily schedule. Perhaps just work at this from Monday to Friday, and rest from it at the weekend.

Learn to bake a cake

You can learn to bake a cake. Dig out one of your many cookery books, or log into you tube. Decide on something you have never cooked before such as a black forest cake, and this will make it seem more of an adventure. Write notes in a “cookery notebook” detailing the ingredients, and how to bake it.

Create a veggie patch in your garden

If you have your own garden that is big enough, you can work at creating a veggie patch, and then you can eat your own fruit and vegetables. This will save you some money because you will not need to go to the shops and buy them.

Write about how all these activities, and hypnosis, can relieve you of the symptoms of anxiety, stress and depression which you may be experiencing during your self-isolation.
