Mental health during the Covid-19 pandemic has been a hot topic everywhere, why not here too?
Yesterday I woke up and I just HAD to go do something outside that didn’t involve my yard. I had the realization that I haven’t been more than 5 places since quarantine began, including my house and work. I’m not whining by any means. Whatever needs to be done to get this thing over with, I am down to do. I just really wanted to get out in nature and absorb some sun rays.
Mr. C&M and I loaded up the kayaks and hit the river mere minutes from our house and it was exactly what we needed. We had just got our kayaks 2 weeks before so we had not tried this trail yet. It was really boring at first but after porting at a mid-way point, the river picked up and we had a lot of fun trying not to crash into banks and trees.
It was also really good to see some wildlife besides the squirrels in my backyard.
On top of a couple hour break from monotony, I’ve decided that I really have to cut back on my phone screen time. Social media is really good for no one these days. I’ve decided to split that time between reading and catching up on movies/documentaries.
Ignited Moth and I haven’t seen each other in 5 months so we decided that Friday nights are now for drinking and FaceTime. I can’t wait to start that this Friday. We’ve also decided to do a buddy read of Gideon the Ninth starting August 1st since our book club has died off during the pandemic.
I am hoping that starting all of this will make me less grumpy. Especially since Mr. C&M wants to start a low carb, low sugar diet this week. I’ll need the extra attitude boost lol.
What are you doing to keep yourself from becoming a Grumpy Gus??
