What’s Your COVID-19 Routine? Part 4

At long last, here is Part 4 of “What Is Your COVID-19 Routine?” (Links to Parts 1 through 3 are at the end of this post.)

I did the first three every other week, but… that was not sustainable. So, I have switched to roughly once a month. Since the U.S. has no plan to manage this pandemic (and, given its malignant, incompetent leader, is unlikely to develop a plan), I expect I will be living some version of the quarantine lifestyle until at least 2021. So, health permitting, I will make a fifth episode.

As noted in this episode and the previous ones, do share your own pandemic coping strategies! I realize that what works for me may not work for you, or may simply not be available to you.

Take care of yourselves. Take care of each other.

To again quote the end of Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times (1936), “Buck up — never say die. We’ll get along!”

What’s Your COVID-19 Routine? Part 3

Here’s the third — and possibly final — video in my “What Is Your COVID-19 Routine?” video series. These have been fun to make! I hope you’ve found them helpful and/or entertaining, as we all navigate this new world together (separately).


Here are links to the charitable organizations named in the video:

What’s Your COVID-19 Routine? Part 2

I’m back with 5 more things I am doing to keep myself going during the pandemic. (If you haven’t watched “What’s Your COVID-19 Routine?” before, may I recommend starting with Part 1?)

How are you keeping yourself going? Anything working really well for you? How has your routine changed? Let me know in the comments below!

Remember: we can be emotionally close even though we must be physically distant. Reach out to friends and family. Check in on each other.

Find a routine that works for you, and — of course — modify as necessary.

What’s Your COVID-19 Routine?

Hi there, fellow quarantiner / social-distancer! I made a video for you. These are 5 things I am doing to keep myself going during the pandemic. (There are other things I’m doing, obviously. But I’ve limited myself to 5 here.)

What are you doing? How are you keeping yourself going? Anything working really well for you?

Sending each other video-messages is one way we can keep in touch without actually touching. Contact-less contact. Separate togetherness. That’s how we’ll help each other get through it.

Let me also thank the video’s three special guests, all of whom are isolating in the same town that I am. (Who are they? Watch the video to find out!)

So. What’s your COVID-19 routine?
