Have you ever thought of starting a journal – as in NOT by computer – but by hand – like an old fashioned written one?

I not just thought but actually did begin a journal several times when I was in school. When I was growing up they were called diaries and keeping them was strongly encouraged. I think the grown ups thought they were a good way to keep kids occupied and improve their writing and spelling. Sadly, I could never keep it up for longer than a week.  

 

  How are you guys handling lockdown?

I guess we are handling lockdown pretty well since our whole family is at home and we love watching movies and TV shows together so YouTube and Netflix keep us from getting bored and driving each other up the wall.  We all love to read   and like to share and discuss books too.

This does not mean, however, that peace and harmony prevails in our home 24/7. We are only human. To quote my daughter today, “Lockdown Day 20– we’ve run out of things to argue about!”

 

Have any of you done the TikTok challenges?

I am afraid I am still clueless re TikTok. I don’t even know if you are “on” it or you “use’ it. I don’t even know how you record it!  

 

  What other interesting things are you doing? If you have some new ideas, please share!

I am keeping quite busy but I am afraid that my pastimes are not very original. They include blogging , reading, watching TV, some de-cluttering(okay, I’ll  be honest: very little) and embroidery(I find needlework very relaxing). Recently, I have started piano lessons–my daughter is teaching me–my progress is super slow.  

 

  What is your personal wellbeing or mindful therapy for keeping boredom at bay during this time of  … ‘reflection?’

My coping mechanism at all times of crisis is an “attitude of gratitude”. I am one of those who see their cup as half-full rather than half empty. Another thing that helps me get through this time is just taking life one day at a time.    

 

Have you ever thought of creating a Vision Board? My Suze [at Home] I am afraid I am not very clear what that involves.  

 

 

  What have you discovered about yourself during this time ? I have discovered that I am not at all idle or bored during this time; I never thought this could be possible.

  1. Hey Tanya, worry not about being late, l never even got the notification from WP even though l can see you tagged it – although l can see you tagged the directory and not the game – that might explain why l didn’t see the tag – either way it matters not, thanks for taking part 🙂
