Recently, we heard from someone that took on a project of scanning old family photos and sending them to their loved ones. This project was an energy and emotional booster for many different people, not just the person who did the scanning.

Plan a Sale
My guess is all of us have too much stuff. We all desire more organization, less clutter and more money to reinvest in better experiences or things. Planning a spring yard sale can happen now. Between now and spring, to stay productive, happy and positive through the winter you can plan and prepare for a spring yard sale.
Inventorying what you have and what you can part with between now and spring will give you a physically active and possibly fun experience.
Online book clubs will get your mind engaged and keep you connected to other humans. Physically distancing is a much better way of staying healthy and connected than calling it social distancing.
Keep connected to your friends and family members. Continue learning and engaging. Book clubs are a great way to accomplish all three of these ambitions.
Write a Memoire
Your kids, grandchildren, and others want to hear from you. They want to stay connected and hear stories other than COVID and politics. Right now is the best time to write your own “Life’s Little Instruction Manual”.
Find ways to continue to walk, run, hike, and bike through the winter. Just because it’s colder outside, does not mean we have to be hermits.
The challenges with COVID19 may continue, but the courage we harvest to face these challenges will use well beyond this winter. Lastly, the strength you develop will be helpful well beyond 2021.
