I arrived back from Europe earlier this week and have admittedly not yet adjusted to new "normal" that Hong Kong has become. My spouse on the other has has been here the past 2 weeks and seems fine with it all having spent lots of time with her friends who overwhelmingly hold a Bobby Mcferrin-like attitude to the whole situation.
Luckily we have a decent amount of space while we both work from home indefinitely but looking ahead at possibly a month or more of this and I'm wondering how on earth am I going to keep my sanity?
We managed to buy toilet paper today which was a big 'win' but how pathetic is that? I have lots of work to do but I'm finding it quite difficult to concentrate. Spending too much time on here and looking at the latest data for signs of hope.
I've been jet-lagged which hasn't helped and it's been rainy so we haven't been out hiking, I think once we get into an exercise routine it will help but what else can one do? I was still feeling the effects of the isolation from the protests and just when things were getting close to tolerable we have this viral outbreak to contend with.
Any tips for this cynic on improving mental health? Or care to share your own story?
