Needed Self Care During Pandemic
We are all doing our part to control the growth of pandemic by practicing self-quarantine and social distancing; the sooner we can resume some level of normalcy. I am hoping very much you are comfortable and safe in your home and with your family.
I think life will be better once the pandemic is in control. People will have a new appreciation for the small things and take the time to enjoy them. I have seen some truly creative and innovative changes in the way we live. It reminds me of life before electronics when it was less complicated. I am also rediscovering things that I love doing that I haven’t had much time to do in years.
Fun Things You Can Do at Home
My love for cooking and baking has ignited. Cooking is a critical skill to while being quarantined. Whereas it is so easy to do a take out, now food preparation is being done in the home. You don’t have to be a skilled chef. There are many apps to help create fast, easy, and tasty dishes with ingredients that you have on hand. I just found an app called Yum. I am thinking of making Thai Sticky Chicken dish. I will let you know if I make it and how it came out. For the fun,
For fun I decided to create a cooking show for you. It has been about 5 years since my last cooking show. In this episode I made Asian Chicken with Tomatoes and Peas.

Allow Yourself to Downtime
Give myself permission NOT to do anything is beyond difficult! The first week was especially unsettling; by the fourth week, I am getting the feeling of what retirement may feel like. I have worked since I was 12 years old, and downtime feels like a lazy time for me. I know that downtime is essential for replenishing, regrouping, and creativity. I am sleeping better than I have in years
The list of what you can do during this downtime is endless. Pick one and then do with desire and zest. Quiet time will end soon enough and then you will wonder why didn’t you make time for yourself.
In the meantime, stay well and safe.
