Baby boomers coping during weeks of staying at home due to the pandemic

Rhodies Many ColorsThings are going well for me as I stay home under Washington state’s stay home order. I’m willing to do it for a long time more. I don’t think it’s worth it to get my hair cut or eat in a restaurant and get the coronavirus.

It’s so upsetting that protesters are risking the lives of others by coming out to state capitals, crowding together, and in some states, even carrying guns.

My yard is beautiful this time of year. I have 40 rhododendrons in many colors of pink plus red, yellow, orangey, and purple. I’m making a bouquet a day because the beautiful blossoms will soon be gone. Since my main interest in my yard is growing vegetables, I rely on all the rhododendrons, and about a dozen azaleas, planted by previous owners.

But the main thing I’m doing is working on the book about my journalism career called “Follow the Money: My Life as a Financial Journalist.” It’s a lot of work to go through the hundreds of print articles I’ve written, but it makes the time fly by. I’m almost finished with the print articles. Next, I’ll need to figure out a way to write about more than 6,000 blog articles.

Meanwhile, baby boomer bloggers are writing about:

  • Whether to let covid-19’s silver grow out and “go gray.”
  • Why it’s O.K. to write garbage during the pandemic.
  • So much cooking during quarantine brings memories about favorite foods of the past.
  • How to battle back the tentacles of loneliness that creep into our lives, especially when we’re forced to stay home and spend too much time with ourselves.
  • The dangers of using payment apps such as PayPal.
  • An interview with an author who describes what it’s like to live in Mexico.

period of quarantine gave me an opportunity to rethink my life

While quarantined, I decided to improve my fitness application and change the background music in it (by the way, I found an excellent audio library at https://taketones.com/search ) and it seems to me that I was able to improve my product. Now I am waiting for feedback from my users.

The quarantine period has become a real challenge for us all.

this pandemic would have ended soon! although quarantine also has its advantages. my son became interested in music. It's so cool!

This is great when the child begins to make music! Music, apparently, is at the very core of our relationship with the world, and there is a deep sense in that, sorting through our heart strings, it helps us to establish emotional contact with other people and with everything in general. By the way, find out more about the impact of music and the Binaural Beat Basics https://minddevice.net/binaural-beats/binaural-beats/ Separately, I want to note that if a melody causes pleasant vibrations in the body, just listening to it in order to reduce our ego is enough.
