On a more positive note, I know everyone will be stuck in their houses all over the world so I thought that it’d be a good idea to share some activities that may help while being stuck at home. The hope of this list is to combat depression, cabin fever, hysteria, and paranoia.
I am well aware that these feelings may occur regardless of the situation but it never hurts to get your mind off of the negative and apply your mind to more positive thinking. So with the help of some of my fellow bloggers I have come up with a list of things to do to help the isolation days pass by a little faster.
- Start your New Years Resolutions
- Exercise with your kids
- Play board games
- Watch movies
- Learn to garden
- Spring clean your house
- Try new recipes for your meals
- Start a personal blog
- Start a YouTube/ Blogging channel
- Practice drawing
- Take up a new hobby
- Organize your closet
- Try Yoga
- Small doses of social media
- Have an at home spa day
- Getting close to God during family bonding (for any religion/beliefs)
- Getting closer to yourself spiritually
- Catch up on household chores
- Call your loved ones
- 1 on 1 time with your spouse
- Reminisce on old photos
- Enjoy your porch/balcony and backyard more
- Reminisce on old times
For now that’s all that I can think of. If you have anymore ideas that could be added please comment down below. If any of these helped or didn’t help you let’s talk about it.
I had help coming up with ideas and inspiration from some bloggers in my little online family so please go visit their Blogs as well and show them some love.
Tell them Ricky sent you!
I talk…to myself…in the shower…about scenarios that will never happen
I have arguments and debates
I cry and yell if need be
I have rap battles and singing matches
I talk to God In the privacy and company of my own nakedness
I have pep talks
I zone out in a world all my own
Can you relate?
Three months ago I have been blessed to gain a new edition to my family. I’ve been blessed with a baby girl. Thus far, it has been quite the trip being a father, but it’s been a fun one. Her name is Sophia!
Finding Her Voice
Just a few weeks ago, she began to make noise from what her mother and I believe that she’s trying to speak. She flexes the muscles of her lips and she gives us a very cute sigh. She does this repetitively as she gets excited that we are speaking back to us. Every morning before I wake up for work, she wakes up before I do and she’s giving me a nice smile and a sigh. It’s the cutest thing to wake up to in the morning.
She does a fantastic job with sleeping at night. She’s a very quiet baby and it’s awesome! Everyone always says how blessed I am to have a baby that sleeps. Before she was born, maybe about 3 to 4 weeks prior, my fiancé and I had alarms set about every couple of hours to get just a taste of what it would be like to wake up every so often. I’m very thankful that we came up with the idea because believe it or not we have to wake her up to eat and get her changed. The only time she really cries or lets anything out is when she’s really uncomfortable or when she’s getting changed. I’ve never seen a baby cry because they had to be changed. Normally I’ve seen babies cry so that they can be changed but finish once it’s all over. But I’m very blessed she keeps us asleep for most of the night.
I will be checking back in with you guys at least once every two weeks about Sophia and her progress and maybe post some pictures and videos with her soon!
Thanks For Reading!
If anyone has any advice for new parents please let me know! Leave a comment and tell me how your experience as a new father/mother went with your first child!
I am very new to the blogging seen and knowing what to write for your first post can set a lot of people off. Not knowing what to say or how to say it is a common problem for those just beginning. For this being my first blog post I’d figure I’d write about first blog posts to just get things started.
If you are just beginning on writing posts try not to stress yourself over it. I’m sure it can be a ton of fun. I’m not really into long blogs but that’s okay. I’m sure there are many bloggers out there who also are not. For me starting a great conversation topic is a must. I love talking to those willing to engage in a conversation about things relevant to a post of mine. I used to be a frequent tweeter until my twitter got hacked but I used to post a lot about video games and other topics to engage in with many of my peers.
What ever comes to mind just say it! Audiences will soon follow. Just be…. You!
If anyone has any advice on blogging, please leave a comment! It will help me develop over time as well as others who may view this to be helpful.
Hope to speak with you soon!
