Corona virus effects; don’t just be a Netflix slob.

  • Mentally:

  • Practice self-care

  • Read books you’ve been wanting to tick off the list

  • Watch documentaries, learn new things.

  • Look at articles online

  • Write/blog memoirs or stories..get out of your head.

  • Sketch/paint/draw…get creative

  • Teach your dog new tricks/complete some obedience training with them. Things that you wouldn’t normally have the time for.

  • Listen to music and chill

  • Meditate

  • Listen to podcasts and discussions on other topics- other events and global issues will still be happening out there.

  • Have time out- make sure you still have fun and watch pointless TV etc and binge on Netflix shows (if you want to).

  • Reflect on your past achievements

  • Study and complete online courses/seminars or workshops

  • Ask for help if you need it

  • Sleep, sleep and sleep some more

  • Remember to keep up with your other medications

  • Make sure to eat well, keep your body healthy and continue to get your protein in

  • Bring back the phone chats- connect with people in old ways and don’t forget to check in with people.

  • Cook new recipes and even bake?!

  • Connect with people on dating apps, actually give them a chance and invest some time in them…who knows!

  • Make sure to continue making future plans and projects you’ve had in your mind for a while.

If you are house bound and can’t work from home there are still plenty of other proactive things you could be doing with your time. You don’t need to become a Netflix slob.

Research shows that regular walking actually modifies your nervous system so much that you’ll experience a decrease in anger and hostility. Seeing as people with fibromyalgia usually have a ‘damaged’ nervous system, we could benefit a lot from this. Sometimes it’s doing the small things that can really help us.
