I’m a morning person and I like that about myself. Mornings are my favorite time of the day because I get to enjoy the quiet before everyone else wakes up.
I wake up a little after or before 7am. I stay in bed reading or listening to a book. I’ve fallen in love with audiobooks lately because they’re so relaxing. It feels good to close my eyes like I’m without a care in the world and listen to someone read to me.
When I’m not reading, I’m watching a movie or serie on my phone or a sermon from my church. About four episodes or chapters later, it’s midday. You want a tip for shorter days during this lockdown? Stay in bed longer, haha! You’re welcome.
I have my breakfast at midday and lunch around 3 or 4pm. What lousy eating habits! But anything is possible during a lockdown. The only thing that hasn’t been possible yet for me is working out. I contemplate this every single day. Should I or should I not? Well, maybe I’ll do some skipping tomorrow. I’ve been at home for 32 days now and haven’t got myself to workout. I’m in dire need of motivation you guys.
And then I scroll Instagram like my life depends on it. I draw a lot of inspiration from many posts on there so I don’t regret it one bit. Every now and then I plan content for my accounts. I’ve found it keeps my brain at work and helps me to be creative.
Before the lockdown I was preparing for an exam in the German language. I know for sure that as soon as the restrictions are lifted I’ll have it. So I try to take time off every day to do my practice otherwise I’d forget some things.
Naps? No, I know better than to nap during this lockdown. I don’t want to struggle to find sleep at night after snoozing all day. Besides, I’ve never been the kind that sleeps during the day. I do my best to keep as busy as I can.
There are times when I am overwhelmed by the number of days. But then I say to myself, “Take one quarantine day at a time!”
