Check in by phone with the elderly people in your life..Set a goal to call one or two people each day. Relationships are essential for our mental health.
Good food and exercise
Make sure to eat good food and exercise daily. Whip up something new or make an old favorite. Involve the kids. Fill your home with fragrant scents from spices or baking bread..
No more excuses: Sort through your junk drawer; organize your kitchen cabinets; alphabetize your spices; untangle and label that pile of electronic cords; clean the garage.
Learn a new skill
Calligraphy? Sketching? Knitting? Poetry? Origami? This is a great time to try your hand at something new. In addition to fun stuff, consider learning a new language or another skill you could use in your career.
