It is a fact that we are facing one of the most challenging situations ever.. RONA… aka.. COVID19.
We have been isolating and social distancing to slow the spread of coronavirus… to flatten the curve 🧍↔️🧍 Of course, that makes sense we have to be responsible for our own health, and #stayathome. We’re not used to being alone, there is a reason to be concerned for our mental health because social contact is such a fundamental human need. But #everything will be ok 😊 😊 😊
Since Rona isn’t going away as fast as I would’ve liked her too and I’m basically stuck inside….. here are some things I have been doing in my quarantined life.😁
Studying at home
As our school had to close for an uncertain time I was worried, how it is going to be with the studying. Luckily, we live in a world where digital communication is prevalent as in-person communication, and that enabled us to study online. Don’t you think it’s super cool to go to Uni in your jammies… that’s like every adult’s dream… stay in jammies all day 😂 😂 😂 . Our university decided to use the Microsoft team or our classes and some group works on Skype.
My room is the best place to study because silence is essential to study and helps to concentrate properly. I can read aloud it helps me to remember some important points of a subject (no one would think I’m crazy right? 😂 😂 😂)… I take a break whenever I want where its short coffee break or I can take a nap of about 15-20 minutes (I’m already in my jammies).
However, studying from home requires some constancy, discipline, and responsibility. I think procrastination is becoming a very good friend of mine 😂 and please let’s not forget the other friend distraction that prevents me from accomplishing what needed to be done, when I get bored from studying the temptation of lying in bed and scrolling down social networks normally wins. From my experience, it is better to take a walk 🚶🏻♀️ and get some fresh air. From my experience, it is better to take a walk 🚶🏻♀️ and get some fresh air, what’s better than walking along a running river?
Walk up to the Kapuzinerberg
Kapuzinerberg is the best place to take a short and simple hike. It takes mostly through the forested areas, and 400 years old defensive walls along flanks of Kapuzinerberg. Atop the Kapuzinerberg, covered completely by a park-like forest and there is a beautiful view of Salzburg City. 🤩 The path leads to Franziski-Schlössl and has a restaurant with outdoor seats. Of course, the restaurant is closed now. ✋🏼
Ever since I was a little, I liked to be outdoors, to explore and discover the beauty of nature over and over again. I like to walk along the river and to hear the river sounds.🚶🏻♀️ My grandmother said it gives mental relaxation. Yes, it does,👍 the calming sounds of a babbling brook and waterfall sound like a soothing melody, that is relaxing and refreshing.😉
Spending time on a riverbank makes me feel more relaxed and refreshed. As well as the calming sounds of the brook, a waterfall has a natural soothing melody. While listening to relaxing noises of water I always feel more relaxed.😊
Walking is vital for our mental and physical well-being because walking increases oxygen flow through the body and opens up a free flow of ideas. It is a simple way to increase creativity and get physical activity at the same time. 🤗 So enjoy nature!
If I’m not studying or walking enjoying the beauty of nature…. I’m drawing 🎨. Being quarantine finally gave me time for drawing. I remembered my childhood dream was becoming an artist (I’m an aspiring Picasso 🖼️). When I was a child, I used to draw a lot and I enjoyed drawing and painting. I tried to draw cartoon characters, but I was not that good enough, so I stopped.🤭The self-isolation time gave me an incidentally chance to draw again.
As I miss family and my little brother a lot, I sketched from his photo when he was a little boy. P.s, he loved it.😍😝…Regardless of what you’re doing right now, in the end, #everything would be okay 👍 👍 👍
