I just wanted to pop in mid week to say hello, I’m thinking of you during this difficult time and to offer my support.
How are you spending your time in self-isolation?
How are you coping with social distancing?
I just experienced two ways to stay connected whilst in self-isolation. Both were via Zoom which is an online video conferencing tool. I did a workout with Peta from Strong Healthy Women and saw the other ladies participating in our virtual class.
I then had a Zoom call with my good blogging friend Donna from Retirement Reflections. I live Australia and Donna lives in Canada. We had a lovely 40 minute chat catching up and I’m not sure why we haven’t thought to do this before. I’m thinking of setting up a call with my family using Zoom and am considering one for my ST60&Beyond Facebook group. Would you be interested? Send me a reply to let me know if you are and what time zone you are in. The first 40 minutes is free and you can have up to 100 participants. Here is a link if you want to check it out – Zoom
There are many ways to keep occupied and connected which I will be sharing in the Facebook Group and on the Blog. Readers have been very creative and coming up with some great ideas to stay positive.
I’m indulging in reading at the moment and catching up on books I’ve been wanting to read plus doing my daily yoga practice through Yoga with Adrienne on Youtube. What are you reading at the moment?
I know that many of my Facebook Group feel that having a schedule for each day has helped them. Do you think this would help you?
The main thing to remember is that you aren’t alone, we have technology to keep us socially connected. It is also important to remember to take care of your health by:-
- Stay active – I’ve been doing Yoga with Adrienne through YouTube which I love plus there are many other online workouts you can try.
- Eating healthy foods – now is a good time to try some new healthy recipes especially for to keep your immune system healthy.
- Taking time for nurturing yourself and your mental health through meditation, reading, relaxing and general self-care.
I found this video on YouTube which is just beautiful so take some time to listen to the Couch Choir singing Close to you
