Covid-19 - Boredom Beating Activities

Given that lots of us will have lots of time on our hands, post your resolutions on how to fill the spare time with acquiring a new skill etc. to help keep us sane.

Farmer’s fingers permitting, mine is to learn Touch Typing via an internet tutor application.

I'm far too busy to even contemplate taking on anything else to occupy my day.

Knees are not over happy... but...

Thinking of ALL the front line staff working to try to help others;Doctors, nurses, paramedics, cleaners, NA's, catering staff, support services and all others. Their work is appreciated more than you can ever realise-keep strong and safe.

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Down Dog have an Intro to yoga app that has free sessions for the next month or two. I've had a go the last couple of nights n fairly knocked up a sweat - possibly due to not removing scarf n gilet before starting! A bit difficult when you have to keep an eye on the screen but once you get the hang you'd just go by the audio.

Pilates is fantastic for bad backs!

We attended, for some time, Clinical (run by qualified physiotherapists) Pilates classes. They assess your needs in a one to one session and then direct you to a suitable class. At first we were in "rehabilitation class" where we were carefully watched and assessed. Once our backs were on the mend we could choose any class that we liked.

I cannot stress enough that a qualified physiotherapist is the way to go. Osteo, chiro or any "path" is not trained by the NHS to very high standards.

Our local clinic, which is in the same building as a GP surgery, is even running one to one sessions so that people can be in a clinical setting. You then go home with a sheet of exercises aimed at your ability. You can return as often as you like (and can afford) for extra help or to move on to a higher level of fitness.

The same clinic is helping the GP surgery by triaging all people complaining of "pain". One young man had stubbed his toe and wanted to see a doctor. The physio triaged him and asked if he had taken any pain relief "no". When did it happen? "this morning". Have you put ice on it? "what?".
Now we know why the NHS is sinking under the strain

My shoulders are knackered so can´t follow her instruction as much as would like to and have that shape.

At least 1 hour every morning with my German course. Usually 1 1/2 - 2 hours walking with Mr. Mot.

If I feel like it a bit of housework if I don´t who cares nobody else in the house.

I should start clearing up in the workshop and up in the big room, but can´t muscle up the enthusiasm.
Plenty to do here, I´m never bored, but then I have been used to my own company for sometime now and do you know I can even make my self larf.

I tried to put a video of me laughin but it wouldn´t accept it:- Your post contains inappropriate content. Please remove the link and submit again.
