Time to get a hobby
Now is the perfect time to get a hobby. Not only will a hobby make you happy, it will make those around you happy, as it distracts you from the stress of being quarantined. You can become easily agitated with everything that is going on right now. Especially if you are someone who has temporarily been unable to work because of the shutdowns. I certainly hope you find the financial help you need to survive until businesses can open back up. The fear of you or someone you love dying from the covid19 virus weighs heavy on everyone's mind. It's a good time to start a new hobby or indulge your mind with an old hobby that you hadn't done in ages. Someone I know started making bird houses to give to friends and family at Christmas time. His wife is going to be a part of the decorating part of it, which has certainly kept their spirits up. And just think of all the money they will save not having to buy anyone Christmas gifts. And what pride they will feel as the recipients open them up and express how creative they are. Another person I know hadn't knitted in years, but boy won't her friends and family be surprised to see what they are going to get for Christmas. To relieve your stress you got to get busy thinking about things that relax you to distract you. It's hard to not think about what is going on all over the world. But if you want to be alright when it is finally over, you got to distract yourself to stay healthy enough while it is happening, to be still standing when it's over.
