yes i'm gaining weight and have stopped exercising too. my day consists of eating, sleeping, drinking until i pass out. i don't read though, unless internet counts.

 

problem for me is that i'd be doing exactly the same even if we didn't have covid (apart from watching live sports)

Hope you stocked up well, alcohol will not be sold today onwards for 10 days

Well if beer and girls is your only or prioritized focus I suggest you have bigger concerns.

 

I would rather be in Thailand right now than a number of other countries in this crisis.

 

As he said if you are locked in does it matter where you are?

i am supposed to be in UK but had to stay here ,

Uk seems more dangerous on the face of it ......but who really knows

If anything did happen medical is better there  (oh and beer and wine freely available unlike here )

 

At least i have my dogs here which is a plus

I stopped caring 30 years ago when my daughter died in her first year of life. But I did not let that stop me from enjoying each day that I was given and she was not.

very sad to hear that. Life can be so cruel at times and we never know why. keep going forward.

Get a hobby.  Play games online in competition with strangers like Wordfeud, chess, checkers, etc.

Pick up Thai cooking. Keeps you busy. Some dishes like omelet are really easy to make. Watch videos of cooking thai food on youtube. Gets you out of the house when you go for groceries and it is cheap. And stop drinking. It makes you feel miserable more and more anytime the boose is out of your system.

Yes. kind of. to all that.  In the absence of gym and coffee with friends, I undertake small tasks around the house, just to keep my legs moving.  the pool has never been cleaner.  But yes, I know I am eating too much and drinking more that I used to and more than is really good for me. My wife is stuck at her Mothers house in the north, so its just me, which is also not too good for long periods of time.  Not sleeping too well either.  The highlights are the all too brief trips to Tesco or Big C for the most trivial of items, just to get out. Rather defeats the objective I know.  

Feel for you staying alone! after a few days of my own company I would be going crazy! as it is my wife has to put up with me, have to say she doesn't seem to be her happy go lucky cheerful self anymore? 🤔

Something must be depressing her 🤪

You might forget you're a scouser.

Chess and tree planting. The way to go.

 

Just played a couple of games and later today will plant 90 (or so) eucalyptus trees.

 

Keep fit with two 6kg weights using the micro method. Keep telling the wife you love her; or you'll have to make your own tea, or pour your own beer.

You need to focus on the process rather than the end point.

Maybe delve into some philosophy - at the very least you could start to question , what is the point of thinking "what is the point".

Totally opposite of you. I always work from home. Now sports more in my home gym, eat healthier then before. 

 

Life is what you make of it. But maybe because I am not a bar type my life is good. If you need bars and girls and stuff like that your in trouble now. 

 

It's the same for me. I'm always at home anyway. The only difference is the times I shop for groceries (used to go late at night), and no more eating out, which was only once or twice a week anyway.

 

As for eating healthier than before? Why has that changed for you? Are you trying to boost your immune system?

 

No Songkran this year, that's a plus.
