And especially what not to do.

The virus causes the necessary panic, we avoid human contact and people feel lonely. Not surprising, but what can you do about it? First of all: don't watch depressing movies. That means: no Hachiko, no Titanic, no "the end-of-the-world". In addition: do not listen to depressing music. Well, the song all by myself may be very appropriate for many, drowning yourself in sorrow and crying on the songs on the tracks doesn't help you.

So. What should you do then?

Do something you like.

Read a book, take an online course, learn a new language through an app (like Duolingo for example).

Be kind to yourself.

Have a spa day, meditate, eat those extra Easter eggs ...

Move that ass

To finish those Easter eggs and then finish them again it is nice to get moving. Various workouts can be found on YouTube, such as Bailey Brown's. Ready in 5 minutes, Kees can do the laundry.

Speaking of laundry ...

The perfect time to take care of your house. Rearrange your house, clean it up, wash away the laundry, rearrange your closet: great for your home and great for your mind.


The perfect way to keep in touch with the people around you. Extra attention for your parents, grandparents, friends, colleagues. To be lonely? What is that?

Play games.

Old fashioned with a board game, butter cheese and eggs with your dog or cat (yes that's one thing), via the Playstation, with a puzzle booklet, or nice and modern via an app. It is all possible.

Learn a recipe

Nothing is better than taking care of yourself and trying new things. Challenge yourself by limiting the number of ingredients and trying (and learning) something new every day.

What to do

Pick out feel good movies, put on some nice music and enjoy yourself to dance. Because despite this annoying time, you should still try to make something fun.
