Anyone still quarantining for health reasons have advice on not losing your mind from boredom? I’m hitting a wall and it’s difficult to focus on anything including work. I live with my husband so I’m not alone but I’m getting so bored. I’m in a higher risk group and being social isn’t an option...

How did you used to spend your time? Are there alternative versions to what you used to do? I’m still quarantining and have really enjoyed the time alone and with my partner. We do... Early AM weekday walks to avoid people Cook together (we were always lazy chefs pre COVID and now try to recreate restaurant favs for fun) Movie nights (pop your own popcorn!) Puzzles Bought a bunch of new plants I’ve also tried to achieve things “I always wanted to do” but never got around to or figuring out how to achieve them when times are better. I’m currently studying for a athletic trainer certification that I started studying for years ago in college and abandoned due to lack of time

Edit: I am doing zoom calls with friends and family and going outside on weekends (walks etc.). I just can’t be social in person or be in close proximity to anyone not masked. And each work week feels very long, although I do enjoy my job.

Is sitting socially distanced in a park with friends not an option? I get being in a risk group but being spaced out in the outdoors like the park without a mask is safe

That might work on weekends but not so much M-F since it gets dark by 7pm now. Weekends are less of an issue, it’s more what to do during the week.

Do you and your husband enjoy doing things together? Where are you located? My hubs and I usually like to take walks and sit in the park, read outside, workout together, sometimes cook together, etc. You have a SO, make the most of it 😊.

I live alone and high risk. Haven't seen a live person in months. I'm rather enjoying being a recluse but do worry about never being in public again. How will this affect my future.

Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?
