Since we are all on rest time. We need to take advantage of the time. I am cleaning files. A friend says she cleaned her washing machine gaskets. I am in awe of this woman. Things aren’t too bad yet, but if we go into weeks our true natures may come raging out. Or we may get so used to slowing down, we’ll have a hard time starting up again. So here are 10 ideas to take or leave.

  1. Organize your day.
  2. Eat Healthily
  3. Go for a walk
  4. Have an early night
  5. See the funny side of life.
  6. Catch up with friends, your phone still works.
  7. Learn something new.
  8. Ask for help if you need it.
  9. Take time out
  10. Reach out to help others.

I’ll add some more do the things at home you have been putting off. Like clean the garage, work in the garden, clean your closet. The last one I am saving for last. I will have to try on my size 8’s which I call my “hope chest.” I don’t know if I have the physical or mental strength to do this. I will lose all hope on that one. I spent more money on clothes when I wore that size, good suits, lovely dresses that have a waist so they are hard to part with but impossible to zip.

I used to teach tennis and play a lot, never had to diet. That is another danger of sheltering. So as my good Lutheran mother used to say cheer up, make yourself useful, mind your manners, and, above all, don’t feel sorry for yourself. Say a prayer for our country and the world.

Blessings, Bubbles
