Our Tips for Enduring The COVID Lockdown

For the past six weeks, we have been working from home and under a “stay at home” order in Massachusetts.  This has kept us from our normal routines and extracurricular activities. Here are some of the things we have been doing to keep us sane:

  • Video meetings.  We do daily team video meetings to stay connected and support each other during this awkward time.  We use the RingCentral meeting platform, but Zoom and Skype can work just as well if you don’t have your own video platform.  We are also using FaceTime with family and friends to stay connected.
  • Gardening/working in the yard. Now that the weather is getting warmer in New England, we have been able to get outside to clean up the yard and plant some shrubs. One of us has even seeded their lawn already!
  • Playing with our pets.  We love our dogs and have been taking them on long walks every day! Also having lots of playtime with toys to keep everyone entertained. We’ve pulled out some agility equipment for the yard to get out that extra pent up energy from rainy days.

We hope that these tips can help break up the monotony many of us have been facing. We would love to hear your suggestions as well.
