These days many of us have a lot of time on our hands. While this is great for some people it is really hard for a lot of others. It is difficult for some to go from running all over the place with never enough time to not even doing those things anymore and now you have an empty calendar.
Major events like this are the perfect time to examine things in your life and then focus on some goals to help you not only survive your current situation but prepare for future events because there will definitely be future events.
I am going to list a couple of things you want to look at now and feel free to add some things to make the list your own.
1) Your home
Many people have found out how important it is to keep up the maintenance of your home. It always important to make sure everything in your home is in working order. Even if you are a renter it’s a good idea to check to make sure everything works and if it does not get it repair as soon as you can. If you don’t have one it is a good idea to put together a basic tool box so that you can do minor repairs.
2) Food storage
Now this is probably a regional thing because everyone is not able to have a store house, barn, or even a pantry full of food. Part of living in a city is that you can always pick up something from the corner store 24 hours a day, seven days a week, except when you can’t.
It’s a good idea to keep some basic food stuff around that will last a couple of weeks. You might have to be creative with your storage ideas but it is something that you can do. Chose foods that will keep for awhile and will lead to a basic balanced diet that is similar to what you eat now. Also make sure to check the food and rotate it when you can.
3) Health care
It is vital that you make regular visits to the doctor. Your current health is key to your well being. As many are finding out your health condition is very important when dealing with certain situations. If you do not like going to the doctor do your best to find someone that you are comfortable with because you need to know your health condition and the health of your family. It is vital that you keep up with you medicine and equipment you need for your physical well-being.
4) Computers and Internet services
Many people are shocked at how so many people do not have a computer or internet access at home. There are many professionals who do not own a computer or have internet access at home. Many people are only relying on their mobile device for all their computer needs. While that can definitely be done, there is a reason that most people use computers and tablets at work instead of smaller mobile devices. It will definitely make your life easier
5) Have a hobby
Believe it or not there are people that don’t have a hobby. They don’t have any activities or interests that they enjoy doing. If you don’t have a hobby then find one. I am willing to bet there is something that at some point in your life you used to enjoy doing or something that you have seen that peaked your interest. Whatever that thing is do it now. If current restrictions prevent you from doing your hobby outside then spend time researching it so that you can hone your craft.
These are just a few things to get you started on discovering new things about yourself, your family, and your home. As many of us are learning depending on life events these may be the only things you have for awhile so make them the best they can.
