While we all practice social distancing and limiting our interactions, there are still plenty of things to do during your short visit in the area. These moments alone are a great opportunity to understand what’s important to us and practice some self-reflection.

A Walk Around the Neighbourhood 

Now would be the perfect time for a short walk around the neighbourhood. Even if it’s just around the block. With phones in our pockets, it’s the perfect opportunity to take Mother Nature in as she is.  If it’s sunny, notice the brightness of everything, or if it’s cloudy notice how vivid all the colours are around. Experience the fresh air and be sure to take in a few deep breaths. 

You’ll notice so much more and perhaps you’ll find a new appreciation for your environment.  

Give Space to Self Reflection

Be it on your walk, or another time while you’re alone; during this time would also be a perfect opportunity to reflect on many aspects of life.  This could come in the form of rediscovering your passions or adjusting your personal and professional goals or even evaluating a new sense of what’s important to you. 

Spend Time with Family

If you’re taking extra precautions and self-isolating, you don’t have to do it alone. Now’s the time to spend that with family. Everyone spends so much time at work, or socializing with friends, or even being locked into our electronic devices. Now is time to put our phones down and enjoy the memories we have and can make with our loved ones.  Pull out a board game, the photo album, or even the karaoke machine. Isolation does not need to be boring.
