The Visit Greece team gathered up some thoughts and came down with simple productive ways to deal with your time at HOME. In any case as the Greek Philosopher Epictitus once said Happiness and freedom begin with a clear understanding of one principle. Some things are within your control. And some things are not.
Try to maintain a healthy routine. Stress can be disruptive so try not to obsess. Try to place a limit to the information you receive/hear, make sure the source is reliable and give yourself some time to pay attention to some positive news as well; despite this difficult time, daily news often contain some positive information. In any case Happiness depends upon ourselves said Aristotle.
As always, it is very important to maintain your regular sleep schedule, eat healthy, which means eat Greek! Here’s a list of Greek recipes, have quality time with your family (watch My big fat Greek Wedding or some films shot in Greece from this list), socialize with your friends via phone or social media, read books, work etc. Engage in conversations and activities unrelated to the outbreak and allow yourself to have some fun.
If you find all this difficult to maintain then rise to some challenges. There are numerous online DIY videos you can take advantage of and learn stuff you always meant to learn but never had the time. Online courses that allow you to get certified on various subjects can also be of interest to some people. Have you ever thought of learning Greek online? The only thing you need to do is – as my mom says – Google it!
Don’t forget to add some physical activity to your daily schedule. It will increase your energy levels, help you feel good about yourself, boost your immune system and help with sleep.If you don’t know which exercises you can do at home there are plenty of Youtube videos you can try out.
At these hard times we are here, keeping you company and hoping for the best. We are positive we’ll come out of this stronger than ever.
Nothing is hopeless. we must hope for everything!, as Euripides once said.
