I’ve blogged everyday for a month, one of my goals, and while I don’t think I’ll keep up the same pace, it’s been really useful to help process the first four weird weeks of lockdown. I’m sure weirder is to come but in the meantime, a few things I’m positive about:
Showering and putting on clothes even when you don’t “have” to is important.
I appreciate walks a lot more now.
Lipstick covers a multitude of video conferencing aesthetic ills.
Community is vital.
Rich friendships are worth their weight in gold.
Takeaway is a treat not a way of life.
Work and life are not, and should not be, the same thing.
Doing nothing is okay, and we’re not supposed to be productivity machines.
Twitter is not real life.
You can’t control everything about your mental space but you can probably control more than you think (and if you can’t, you are deserving of kindness and help to do so).
Taking care of and responsibility for our fellow man is non-negotiable.
Nobody is really in charge and we’re all just trying to do the best we can with the information we’ve got.

Brilliant comment by you. Carry on together.
all of this…
We do takeout at most twice a week as a treat….because cooking 21 meals a week is uggggggghhhhhhhh.
Tell me about it…our Instant Pot/crock pot has been a life saver and we do at least one batch meal or soup/stew a week for sheer ease. I don’t think this is necessarily the most healthy, but I find I’m eating about two full meals a day on average and I suspect it’s because I’m less hungry due to being less active.
I finally put our away because it takes up a LOT of counter space. Trying to eat a lot more salad!
