Life in quarantine

 

“A beautiful day begins with a beutiful mindset.””

Passing Time During Quarantine

QUARANTINE LIFE

We can all agree that this pandemic has been life-changing. One minute it’s business as usual, and the next, all of our lives came to a screeching halt. Quarantined in our homes; our routines changed; fear for our loved ones and ourselves; a new normal developing where everyone’s in a mask and we’re scared to get each other sick. At first, I prayed it wouldn’t last long, but here we are months later. I have to be honest that I didn’t know how to talk about it with all of you. It’s not usually what I do here, but I think it’s important and more than okay to let each other in on our new normals. I hope that by giving you a glance into my daily dose of quarantine life, you feel a little less alone too. 

For starters, you should know that I am mainly an introvert, but become extroverted in social situations. So the quarantine at first wasn’t too bad for me. But once you’re stuck at home, you have to learn how to entertain yourself and maybe even learn a few new things. 

I don’t know about all of you, but I got bored with all the tv shows and movies I was watching fast. I turned to find different ways to keep me active, but also enjoy myself. Some of these newfound loves:

 

 

Puzzles. It was the obvious choice, right? I think it’s safe to say most of us have done one in the last two months (for some of us it might be the first in years). The main issue I ran into quick was that I couldn’t find any puzzles in stores or even online. Luckily, I have multiple family members sending me them to keep me occupied now lol. I’ve learned that once I start one, I literally can’t stop. They’re addicting!

I also started reading more. I am not the biggest reader by nature and never have been, but I’m pushing myself to do better. I have only gotten through two books, but hey its better than nothing! I highly recommend “Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon for a little historical romance in your life and “Where The Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens for a beautiful page-turner.

My favorite thing that I have found through this whole being stuck at home thing though is paint by number! It can be a tedious thing for sure, but let me just say it’s so much fun to do. I have only done one so far because of how long they take to complete, but I finished it two days ago, and have another one coming in the mail. If you are looking for something to keep you occupied other than watching tv, paint by numbers is a great way to entertain yourself.  

I do pray that everyone who reads this is staying strong through all of this and that you and all of your families stay safe and healthy. Wishing everyone the best.

xoxo,

Jessie
