Get Healthier as You Stay in More
By Tom Herrin
There is no doubt that those who have been staying in are sick and tired of doing so. It definitely has placed a strain on the economy and changed the lives of many individuals. Without a doubt, staying in has been necessary and has likely saved lives. For lots of people, staying in is still a major part of the plan. Rather than take risks, a slow reopening is taking place in most states. Those who are more cautious are choosing to spend more time at home than they ever have. As this continues for the next little bit, people may be able to make the most of the situation and may be building some good traditions as they do.
Get to Know Those in the Household Better
There is no time like the present for anyone to become better at sharing conversation. One of the best ways to do this is to do things together. Playing games or other activities that stimulate thought and conversation are good places to begin. Doing crafts, building things, or having friendly contests such as bake-offs can be fun for all. As they do this, casual conversation can take place and develop stronger relationships.
Get in Better Shape Together
As they are staying in the same place more, people may as well take advantage of the opportunity to build their physical condition. Exercising together may provide more motivation for all. Taking turns leading can allow everyone a chance to have some input and be creative in doing so. These may not only be the standard things but may also include active games and those from childhood. Even things such as hide-and-seek may provide some good activity. Being more accepting of each person's contribution can make them feel more important.
Since we are all in these circumstances, we may as well make the best of it. Even in dire situations, we will be far better off to find ways to enjoy it. Whether it is playing simple games or having competitions, we are sure to grow stronger as a group as we interact and spend more quality time together. We can hope that some of the things we have regained through all of this is something we can keep. In our neighborhood, it is striking to notice how people appear to live as they may have 60 or 70 years ago. It seems simpler. Maybe those are things we can keep.
