Wow. Okay. Are you doing alright?
Hopefully the kids aren’t using your living room for P.E. class or your roommate hasn’t found a new love for playing really loud video games.
We’re all working from home and trying to stay optimistic in the face of all this anxiety. Don’t worry, our coffee isn’t going away! In fact, if you’re like us, the biggest concern is over caffeinating. So dare I say, be careful with this one… drink coffee but don’t overdo it!
And If you are working from home these days like us, I’m sure you’ve found yourself with a lot more time on your hands. Worried about getting cabin fever?
Here are a few suggestions of healthy ways to entertain yourself during quarantine.
- Learn the Wim Hof Method of Breathing
This guy is absolutely loco (in the best of ways). I had the good fortune of meeting him a few years back at The North Face Global Athlete summit. Download the free app or just go to his website and fill those lungs with some good ol oxygen. Who knows, you may actually enjoy it! https://www.wimhofmethod.com/
- Take an online Training Class
Just because every gym in the country is closed doesn’t mean you have to stop training! My friend Zahan Billimoria out of Jackson WY has put together some bodyweight-only training regimes you can do in the comfort of your own home. To get people active and started he’s offering a “COVID 19 FREE WORKOUT.” https://www.samsaramtntraining.com/
- Learn a New Recipe
I know I’ve been spending way too much time diving down all these News stories rabbit holes and over-stimulating myself with way to much information about COVID–19. Here’s a web site that has NOTHING to do with the Coronavirus and everything to do with cooking! You’ve probably also found yourself with a little more time to spend in your kitchen. So dive down this Bon Appetit rabbit hole and find something extra yummy to cook. One of my new favorite recipes is Gochujang Chicken. https://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/slow-roast-gochujang-chicken
- Plan your first post-pandemic backpacking trip
One more thing… in my last note to the world—wow seems like a lifetime ago, I think it was last week—I talked about backpacking foods. I think it came across like I was saying all camping food is equally crap. Well, that’s definitely not the case and there’s one brand that sits above the rest! I’ve eaten these meals all over the world and they truly are great. https://goodto-go.com/
That’s it for now, hopefully you haven’t strangled your roommate or put your kid on a leash.
Stay safe, stay healthy AND wash your hands,
