It is day 2 of the situation. People are working from home nearly everywhere. Friends and colleagues from London, New York, Philadelphia report they too are working from home. Everyone is reporting an adjustment to the new environment, trying to separate work life and home life in one way or another.
The internet and social media is full of tips to workout at home, and i even saw my neighbour across the street do some burpees. I wonder if his downstairs neighbour liked the idea? I currently stick to some stretches and a few yoga poses in between.
I am thankful this is happening in a time when everyone is very connected digitally, as we have the opportunity to talk and interact on many platforms.
A lot of countries are closing borders and in general everyone is advising against travel. I decided against traveling to South Africa at this point in time, as the risk of infection and/or quarantine is too high. So I will try to wait this out in my apartment in Amsterdam.
I have stocked up on enough groceries to last a couple of weeks in the event that I might be sick and want to self quarantine. Trying to be a responsible citizen and all. As long as I am in good health, however, I will try to cook with fresh ingredients and take the opportunity to cook wholesome and tasty meals.
Families with kids are out in the street and a few people are out and about, taking a jog etc. I wonder how long this will be possible, and if it is a good idea? I hope so, its good to get out and move around a bit.
Take care and be kind.
