I know we are all starting to get a little frazzled staying indoors, running out of streaming shows to watch and worried about our expanding waist-lines and shrinking bank balances. I just wanted to say, hang in there!!! We are all in this together and we will get through this. Here in the USA if you feel you need someone to talk to, there are many services that have opened their doors, are free and will help you navigate your concerns or fears. If you just want to chat, I am happy to do that with you as well.
There are too many resources to list on here, a google search with your zip code will bring up those closest to you, if you are feeling overhwlemed, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be happy to find the info for you.
Stay indoors, stay healthy, stay sane and remember to love yourself!
Thanks for posting these encouraging words, Ambar! I have been trying to have an attitude of gratitude while I am self-quarantining with my loving wife and our pets because we have shelter, enough food to eat, and plenty of ways to entertain ourselves but some days are easier than others. I've been attending web seminars hosted by rental houses and camera/lens manufacturers, which I typically learn about via social media, and have also been trying to walk daily and check in with friends and family. Hopefully others are holding it together, staying at home, and we come through the other side of this soon. Take care and all the best!
I was having a pretty rough time two weeks ago when I was about two weeks into pre lockdown social distancing.
Getting outside, clearing the garden, going for short walks really helped. I've also been listening to more podcasts and watching many live streams to try and still feel connected to people. Adam Savage on tested has been great. Inspiring making projects and being encouraged to work on the space you're in rather than worry about what you don't have.
