How are you doing Second Week #SelfIsolation

As we start to form new realities and routines, how are you doing?

Are you being super productive, active and learning new skills? I’ve seen a new love of baking on Twitter and people taking up Joe Wicks exercising.

Whereas I also see lots feeling lost dazed and confused, and to be honest that’s been me a little bit. But I finally realised it was me watching the news religiously and absorbing as much information as possible, which now with hindsight was my worst decision. It started to feel all too oppressive and miserable. Like your taking on all the world’s negative energy.

So I’ve had to take a step back in time, back to 2009 when I had my Triple pelvic osteotomy and femoral osteotomy done. This rendered me completely housebound for a very very long time, and at no time was I miserable from it. So stepping away from Statistics that are hammered home to you each night, and turning off the news.

I realised I needed to get back into being me, and my usual routine, which is working out for physio, as my hip replacement recovery is still on going. And using down time to read, carry on learning my #Dutch and #Swedish and maybe when hands allow colour in too.

I use the #LosingWeightApp for Men. It’s great as you can customise it for no impact, and no jumping.

For example, here are the exercises, ranging from 12-14 exercises and 8-10mins of time.

For the languages I love Duolingo and it’s been a fun journey. I had already started way before all this happened in the world. As a fun way to occupy and work the brain for 10- 15 mins a day.

Easy to use and actually a great time filler, you can do as much or as little as you like, and whatever language you desire too.

So that’s week 2 we’ve all completed. Give yourself a minute to embrace that victory. X
