Got my social security payment this morning. I ordered a few groceries and supplies. Mostly meat and cleaning agents. I should have those delivered this afternoon. I have to drop off my rent check and do laundry today. I do my laundry at least once a week.
Still doing well mentally. I haven’t had a breakdown in over a month now. I’m pleasantly surprised that I’m holding it together in spite the stressful time we’re in. I think it helped that I got prepared earlier than most people. I haven’t even had to leave my apartment complex in over two weeks. I sleep a lot now. I usually sleep at least ten hours a day. I’ve heard sleep helps boost immune defenses and, for me, reduces stress. I was doing breathing exercises in bed yesterday and was relaxed enough I fell asleep for over three hours.
I actually don’t have much problems with aches and pains except for when I wake up in the mornings. I make a point of standing up at least once an hour no matter what I’m doing. I haven’t read much other than online articles this week. I still watch some youtube videos. Much of what I watch are videos on the line of what positives will come from this pandemic and what tech will advance faster because of covid 19. One thing I do see happening is that more companies will allow more work from home options. Another is that grocery and medication home delivery services will become real popular. I also see that fewer people will harass others via social media interactions. I was starting to see this already. It isn’t as bad now as it was three to five years ago.
I started lifting weights every day. I just don’t work the same muscles two days in a row. When I was seriously lifting in high school and college, I usually lifted five to six days a week but worked individual muscles no more than three times a week.
The days are starting to go quicker now. For the first week of the self quarantine, the days felt like weeks. It wasn’t so much that I wasn’t leaving my apartment complex, it was that even that option went away. But, like many things, I adapted within several days. I do still have some minor maintenance issues in my place that could be taken care of quickly. But, for now, only vitally necessary maintenance is getting done. So glad I got my new floor and paint before all this mess hit.
