I think I will write a new book called “How to Become an Introvert – A Survival Guide for Managing a Lockdown.”
Body-Mind-Spirit: all need to be fed.
For the body. Keep up with an exercise program. I have my “daily dozen” exercises that I do at the foot of my bed. I do not need a gym or even a workout “tape” (showing my age). I also live in an area where I can walk and it is easy to maintain social distancing – at 5:30 AM, it is difficult to find other people to social distance from.
For the mind. I am fortunate, I can work from home. The nature of my work is that it is creative in nature. However, I do find myself reading a lot more. I’m learning things about topics I’ve never considered before. With today’s technology, I can bring an entire library to my computer screen.
I am on a “news diet.” The adage, “If it bleeds it leads” holds sway in journalism, therefore news media (video, on line or printed) tends to be disturbing and depressing. I get most of my news online, so I can manage the content better. I stay away from cable “news.”
Establish a regular daily routine. We are creatures of habit.
For the Spirit: I used to get my energy by plugging in at the services on Sunday. I can still do this on line. It’s not quite the same, but it is much better than nothing. Fortunately, our priests and deacons are really good with a sermon.
If you wish, you can curl up with the Bible or works by other theologians.
Also there is nothing wrong with secular spiritualism. Poetry, art, music and philosophy come to mind.
doesn’t seem like a catholic thing -
That’s pretty much what monks do.
I feel like I’m out of this world after 20 minutes into the Meditation.
People of all ages just have to deal with it in there own way, whatever it is!
A bottle of Jack Daniels is also effective…
