It Can Be All Good to Stay Home

By Tom Herrin

While just about everyone in America is likely growing tired of staying close to home, it is for the best.  Aside from the crippling effect this has had on much of the economy, the recent orders have been for the protection of all.  When any virus is introduced for which no one has any previous exposure, it can take a devastating toll.  Those who feel it is overblown are simply living in an insulated world.  Good for them.  For everyone else, they must have ways to cope.  As a lifting of many restrictions is happening, there is still reason for people to limit their trips out and continue to be home more.  Making the most out of the situation can make a good thing out of difficulties.

Rebuild Relationships

This may be the best time for people to reach out to one another as they live under the same roof.  Since they are all there anyway, pulling out a game may be a good idea.  It may take a few tries to get it going, but it can be fun.  Crafts or puzzles are also good.  Even perhaps a cooking challenge can be a good start.  Once this is underway, conversation is a natural.  It may be surprising what something like that can do to spark interest.  Once they begin talking, it probably will develop into a productive time of sharing.

Exercise Shouldn't Go Away

Just because situations have changed does not mean that everyone can become couch potatoes.  It is easy to do, but it can be a dangerous habit.  It is better to avoid letting that happen.  To be more productive with that time, why not get together as an exercise group with whoever is at home.  Take turns leading and trying to find some creative ways to do so.  Even simple kids games such as hide-and-seek may be fun.  Gardening or building something together works well, too. 

Make This the Time of Your Life

Since you are more limited in going places, make this time count.  Enjoying one another's company is a lost art for too many people.  The more we have good talks with each other, the better we are likely to become at it.  The one warning is to be careful to avoid getting upset at each other.  Spending all this extra time together can become a bomb waiting to go off.  Remember to be more tolerant.  Look for something good in the others.  For our family, we enjoy eating a meal together and spending some time at the table talking and interacting afterwards.  It works well for us.
