Living with Yourself

Living with Yourself is a show on Netflix that I binge watched recently. Staring Paul Rudd and Aisling Bea - Paul plays Miles Elliot, who is burned out on life and love, decides to undergo a mysterious treatment, only to discover that he has been replaced by a better version of himself. If you are deciding which show to watch next, I'd definitely recommend giving it a watch.

How I am staying sane

Let’s see, looking back at last week, I haven’t taken on any new activities but I have definitely devoted more time to the things I already enjoy doing. And lucky for me, I enjoy plenty of things that don’t require me to go outside. For example:

- Baking!🍰 Just last Friday I made some chocolate chip cookies.  I didn’t take any pictures of them but I included some pictures of some of the other goodies I’ve made below. 

- DIY projects!🎨 Over the weekend, I did a small DIY project that involved an old bookshelf, empty candles, paper lunch bags (which I used as book covers), a damage cheese board (which I painted), and some picture frames (which I also painted).  

- Podcasts!🎧 I’m continuing to listen to some of my favorite podcasts. I’m currently going through “Business Wars” and I’m enjoying each new story so far…just started Starbucks vs Dunkin. 

- Netflix!🎥 I’m catching up and binge-watching some shows. I just finished the 3rd season of Ozark and the documentary on the Tiger King. 

Aside from that, I am just trying to look at the bright side - no traffic and apparently our air quality is improving due to the lack of pollution. 😊

 

Can't wait to hear what's keeping you guys sane!

Going for a walk

It may not be the most exciting thing but the last couple of months my wife and I have started taking evening walks around our neighborhood. With the stay at home order this has become an even bigger part of our day. At first it was just a way for us to get out of the house and exercise, but it has become more than that. It is not something I really thought about before we started doing it but is it is a cool time for us to just talk about everything or nothing without the distractions of TV or our phones. 

So if you are looking for a break, I recommend going for a walk even if it is just through your neighborhood.
