Have u tried painting by numbers
Or looking on pininterest for garden ideas
Hi Dana, Thanks for your post. I feel there are 2 issues for you if I read the post right. The first is finding something to do while Covid-19 limits freedom outside the home. I have signed up for some free online courses. Painting by numbers as mentioned by Hidden is good too. The second is support to cope with feelings about the virus and it's affects. Most governments have helplines for chats and websites for information.
I am in Australia so that makes it hard to make a relevant referral. Let us know how you get on 🐨
I appreciate ur response an there r some good idea I have painted by numbers an it help but bc I live in an apartment that limits me to work in the garden ect but I like ur feedback I usually so busy in summer volunteering am going to school which r both closed here I love the idea of classes online that’s what I’ll look into today thank u for ur feedback 0693
You are not the only one, Dana.
Hi, I'm ella, and like you, I also deal with anxiety. Most of my activities have come to a halt due to the virus, so I do understand when you say it is hard to keep busy.
I try to stay active and keep my mind busy. Crocheting is something I normally do in the fall and winter months, but because I need to stay busy I have started to crochet small items and will donate them to those in need in the fall. Hats, scarves, etc. are easy to work up and small enough to keep myself focused and see quick results.
If you don't crochet then I suggest you go on youtube and find a tutorial, there are many, and take it up. This is what I did. I had to focus and this helped to keep my mind busy. Hooks and yarn are easy to find and just shopping for them is something interesting and fun to do.
