Five positive things about isolation

By Admin User on March 26, 2020

With all the stress and anxiety of the COVID-19 pandemic, it might help to look at some of the bright sides. Here are five little things I’ve been thinking about to keep my spirits up.

1. Time to take care of business

Now, I’m not going to lie, I’ve been playing a lot of video games while I’ve been cooped up here at home. I’ve also gotten a lot of chores done. I’ll also admit that my partner is the one who gets me to clean. without her I might let things pile up a bit worse…

We also did our taxes! Exciting stuff right? I know it’s super boring but something that had to be done, and was super easy while we were both at home.

I will admit too, to panic buying a bit…

Full pantry!

That being said, all this food helps us to stay home, stay healthy and keep our distance from society… That’s what social distancing means right?


2. Eating less junk food

Stocking the pantry and eating at home means no more eating out. This is difficult for me as I have a bit of an addiction to cheeseburgers. So the only cheeseburgers I get will have to me homemade. That’s okay though because I make awesome cheeseburgers. Like I said, there’s plenty of time to cook and clean right now. Tonight Lisa made perogies from scratch! Way better than the frozen ones we had the other day.

Grocers are making bank!

Due to the aforementioned panic buying, someone down the line in the grocery business has got to be pretty happy. This is totally a hot-take by the way, as I know nothing about how grocery supply chain works… That being said, all the money we’ve been spending clearing grocery stores of meat and toilet paper has to land in someone’s pocket.

4. It feels like we’re in a movie

As terrible as all of this is with so many people getting sick and dying, I can’t help but think about how we’re living through something historic. People will be talking about how this happened for years to come. The real effects of this pandemic will ripple through time indefinitely. It’s not often that something is happening that seems to affect everyone in the entire world. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to belittle the death and suffering, but we are going to be talking about this forever.

5. Makes us remember what’s important

The threat of this virus is real enough that we’re all thinking about the long-term consequences, including losing people. At times like these you have to focus on what really matters most. The people we love, the things we miss doing, and what we are going to be so stoked about after this is all over…
