We are living in unusual times, full of stress.  I hope you are all well and that you have the supplies you need.  This is the time to focus on self care.  Are there projects at home that you have said you wish you could do if only you had the time?

This is not the time to tackle huge projects that will raise your stress level.  In other posts, you can find some tips for working on small projects at home.

I am trying to take walks.  I found a long book I had put away to read and that has become one of my projects.  My yard gives me plenty of time to do what I call “Weed Therapy” – a friend says she has a weed garden and mine could be called that also.

Reader’s Digest had an article saying that jigsaw puzzles are good for anxiety and encourage family togetherness.  The last few winters I said I was going to do one, so tomorrow I am getting a puzzle out.  My cat thinks we are having family togetherness when he is trying to knock puzzle pieces on the floor so now I have a large piece of plexiglass to cover the puzzle when I am not working on it.

Jigsaw puzzles are good for anxiety and encourage family togetherness!

Let me know what you are doing to stay busy.  I would love to share a list of suggestions!
