God I am so sick of hearing about covid-19. I’m sick of how scared and sad and anxious we all are feeling. I just want to lie down and sleep and make art and listen to music and bake brownies and play uno and get high and watch robot chicken.
Instead, I’m worrying about whether I’m going to have to close my business before it’s even properly begun, my baby of just over a month. Or whether my boyfriend and I are going to have enough food to last us during the self-isolation if shit hits the fan big time, or whether I’ll have enough strength to fight him off if we have to resort to cannibalism. What if all my family members don’t make it out of this alive. What if I never see my friends again?
Luckily for me, these thoughts don’t stay for long because, well, why worry? There's nothing you can do about it. Just relax, and go with the flow.
I think the only thing that will get us through this is gratitude. Instead of thinking how much this sucks (which it will do), think about how you’re at least quarantined with someone you love, or if you’re by yourself then it gives you time to read all those books gathering dust on your bookshelf that you ‘just never have time to read’.
Here are some other things you could do whilst isolated;
- Get creative; paint, draw, collage, make a boob cast
- Do your washing
- Spring clean baby!
- Write a screenplay
- Facetime your family (or you know, talk to them, if you're in the same house)
- Learn a skill. Online or IRL. So many free courses!!
- Make music
- Learn to sing
- Do yoga
- Do yoga AND meditate
- Rewatch your shows for the millionth time
- Watch something you’ve never seen before
- Movie marathons
- Indoor exercise
- Have sex/masturbate
- Write a bucket list
- Get drunk/high
- Online shop (especially at www.shophoyden.co.uk ;) )
- Do your birth chart (FUN AND IMPORTANT AND LIFE CHANGING)
- Cut your hair
As you can see, the possibilities are endless, but I reckon they're some good ideas to get ya going. The main thing is, if you're young, fit and healthy theres a very high chance you're gonna be just swell, so dunna worry pets!
