I’ve been staying home for the last several days. So far the isolation hasn’t gotten to me yet. I call my family every morning and talk to at least one friend every day. Been watching some movies I’ve always wanted to see. Saw a couple Monty Python movies this week. Saw some George Carlin and Bill Hicks specials too. I also sleep more. I try to sleep 10 hours per day now. I still lift weights three times a week. I don’t drink much caffeine these days. Had only two cups of coffee in the last two weeks. Maybe that’s why I’m not as irritable or restless as I could be.
Mentally I’m holding up so far. I make a point of avoiding news articles and shows for most of the day. I use social media mainly to talk to family and friends anymore. I haven’t participated in my groups since this pandemic started. And I try to do breathing exercises and meditation at least twice a day. And I wash my hands every couple hours whether they need it or not.
So far I’m holding up. But this could be a long ordeal.
