During these rather unprecedented (for many) circumstances, it’s natural that we tend to focus on what we aren’t able to do: can’t this, can’t that and the list goes on.
As the saying goes, when all else fails, opt for simple (okay, there’s no such saying, but adapt we must). Here at AquAid Water Coolers, we took the image seriously and came up with a few options that for the most part, cost nothing but offer much reward:
Soak up the sun. Disclaimer: although this blogger cannot predict the weather, news suggests that this week we may expect temperatures as high as 26°C. (not so much in the North though … sorry about that!)
Revisit your favourite TV shows. From Rick Mayall through to Ricky Gervais, there’s nothing more therapeutic than a good ol’ belly laugh.
Build that model craft. Or planet (Lego Deathstar of course) or car, or dinosaur.
Plant something. Then tend to it, water it and watch it grow.
Have a conversation that isn’t a Zoom meeting. Call your furthest and dearest and have a good ol’ catch up.
Discover a new route. Try a different route while taking your outdoor exercise.
Increase your water intake. For real. Now, even more so, it doesn’t matter that you may need to pop to the loo so many times.
Relish the moment. Enjoy the time afforded: whether it’s wearing comfy, fluffy socks; brewing the best cuppa ever; cheat sleeping in for an extra half hour / hour or even longer (you little rebel, you) or diving into those books and reading for hours undisturbed.
