Exercise, fresh air and blogging

Lucky me and you! We had means to interact with each other while the rest of the world was under lockdown in March, 2020

I wrote this post in March 2020, just when the whole of the world was going into lockdowns for the first time.

In today’s mad mad world, we are lucky to have one thing that is not affected by the threat of illness. Our blogging!

This thought struck me while planning out my day. Going shopping is out. Socializing is out. And most of the things we do together are out for the time being. But we are lucky that blogging is a solitary occupation. We can blog and be in touch with our friends all over the world. No chances of getting ill or catching a virus, unless it’s of the cyber variety.

Sitting by ourselves, we can roam the world, catch up with our friends and their news and never feel lonely or isolated. We get all the mental stimulation and exciting while never even getting up from out comfy chair. Can you imagine anyone else being this lucky!

So this is what I am doing these days. Nice solitary walks around the neighborhood and getting plenty of exercise and fresh air. And at home, blogging and reading. Took these pictures while on a walk with my grandson today.

Keep well and keep safe. As they say;

Keep calm and blog!

  1. Pretty flowers in your photos. Nice to walk around the neighborhood for fresh air and exercise, plus the companionship of your grandson. Yes, blogging is and has been wonderful for keeping in touch with our online friends. 🙂

  2. The power of the simple things. Sadly as the world is getting back to some sense of normalcy (if ever it was normal) these simple things are being replaced with the hustle and bustle. Have we learned? Will we change?

  3. We met some new folks in our neighborhood while doing ‘Lock Down Walks’ 🙂
    Our Bubble routine was that at home, Hubby (thankfully could) work. We were able to, while masked get groceries, but many activities were limited. Blogging was and still is a wonderful way to share with our ‘Blogging Families’ 😀

      1. In some countries… there are still problems. And mask wearing, and even quarantine situations. Over here most medical places you still have to wear masks, you in their office and Docs and others in hospitals (etc).

          1. Everyone has the option to wear masks. But they aren’t required outside of medical ‘stuff’. I don’t even see folks at resturants wearing masks anymore either. Anyone who has chosen not to be vacinated – they are recomended to wear masks, sometimes they also wear gloves.

            Our bowling alley had clear partittions up for a while (between every pair of lanes), but they were taken down at the beginning of the year. There still are clear plastic partitions at some caisher areas.

    1. Yes Brenda, I am glad that the pandemic has ended(I think so) because it really caused havoc in our lives. Life was hard and scary as you say back then but at least for most blogging kept them busy just for the sake of sanity. I wonder what 2023 brings??

      1. Although I was stuck at home for a very long time, I was still able to deliver my classes 100%, but there was so much disruption that it took a long time to adapt.
        I think the world has changed in so many ways because of events in the past 3 years. It’s difficult to know exactly what the future holds, but we should embrace it rather than being afraid

  6. What a lovely and positive post! It’s so true that even during challenging times, we are fortunate to have the technology to connect with each other from the safety of our homes. Your words remind us of the power of blogging to bring people together and provide a much-needed sense of community during difficult times. And how amazing that you’re also getting in some exercise and fresh air – that’s such an important aspect of staying healthy and happy. Thanks for sharing your uplifting perspective, and keep up the great work!
