While we are all staying home, we finally get to spend quality time with our family
Long before internet you had to entertain yourselves in other ways. Now is a good time to build a puzzle. We had two puzzles burrired in our closet along with other Christmas gifts we had been given over the decades. You just might be surprised what you actually have kept that you have stuffed in your closet. Now is the time to go through old stuff to help entertain you while we are stuck indoors to stay safe from covid19. The puzzles we found weren't just regular puzzles they were very unique. One was a round puzzle with pictures on both sides making you have to essentially solve two puzzles at the same time. The other one had extra pieces to throw you off for as long as they could. When you get a puzzle started that will take days to do, at some point other family members will sit down occasionally to find a piece or two. Eating home cooked meals together as we are staying home has definitely had a positive impact on families everywhere. Sitting down eating together every night, bonds a family and that was missing in families everywhere. The fast paced electronic driven society we live in, had made family dinner time non existent. We have to focus on the positive things that are happening so we don't let all the negative things that are happening be the only thing we think about. Stress lowers your immune system which is not going to allow you to fight off any sickness let alone covid19. Make a list of the bonding little moments you have with your family each day while you are quarantined. Keep your list handy so you can add them as they occur. When you are feeling frustrated at what is happening from time to time, just read the list you have written and you will have plenty to be thankful for that wouldn't have happened if you were not quarantined together as a family.
