Here we go again, Lockdowns on the rise!
Today’s blog is by Margaret Stewart, Director of HR and Administration at SafeSourcing Inc..
Lockdowns have been on the rise again as Covid cases rise and many cities, provinces, states, or entire countries are implementing new rules to try and slow spread to help keep people safe. While there are vaccines coming, it will likely be a long time before there are enough doses for everyone and to get life pre-Covid back. So, while we must go about our days as they are now, there are some things to do to keep your lockdown life as normal and regular as possible.
Last spring different hobbies began trending and one of them was bread making. While this may not be everyone’s cup of tea, the idea is similar. Find a new hobby or set aside time for an old hobby and keep it up. This can be any number of different things like cooking, crosswords, making videos, reading, woodwork, painting, or even redecorating. In fact, for some people a hobby you enjoy can even result in a little extra money if you want to sell you skill or finished product.
While for many people the weather may not be ideal for walks or outdoor activities, there are other ways to get out of the house, even if it is just virtually. This is where the internet and the vast amounts of information can be a game changer. You can take virtual tours of many places across the globe. You can view art from museums, take a google maps stroll down your old road, or you can even take a virtual tour of downhill skiing!
In addition to finding things to do for fun, it is important to also keep connected to others. People are a social species and that need must be fulfilled. Set aside time every week to call a friend or family member, or you could event start with a pen pal and write letters to each other. Video calls have been excellent ways to not only talk to others, but also to see how people are doing. You can get your friends opinion on that new hair cut or keep up with how big the grandkids have gotten.
Whatever way you decide to keep a lockdown lifestyle as normal and rewarding as you can, we must all make sure business is taken care of too. This is where SafeSourcing can help. We can help your organization find goods or services that you need and help you to find the right supplier for it.
