Many of us are now in our third week of self-isolation. Admittedly, it’s easier for some of us than for others. Perhaps you and your spouse are both working from home while trying to supervise your kids in their online schooling. With restrictions on going almost anywhere except the grocery store, things may be starting to become a little intense. It’s also easy to become a bit down after listening to the 24/7 news cycle or looking at social media, which seems to be focusing on only one story…the C********** (I’m not spelling it out so that I don’t get penalized by Google!)
On the upside (yes, believe it or not, there is an upside!), our time at home presents a great opportunity for catching up on long-forgotten household chores, organizing our closets, storage rooms and basements, bonding with your family over some Netflix series, indulging in some of the books on your reading list and getting your backyard ready for summer to name a few. This is also a great time to take an online course. Many businesses are opening up their catalogues and offering free online courses for a limited time.
