As stitchers, we are all pretty OK with just sitting in our comfy chairs stitching the hours away. Maybe the scene changes based on the snackies next to you or the furry assistant on your lap but many of us would be perfectly content continuing to stitch through the stay-at-home mandates many of us are facing.
But eventually we have to move.
Here are some ways to get moving and perhaps feel more accomplished during this wackadoodle time - if you are not symptomatic, are not immunocompromised, have not tested positive for COVID-19, or your doctor has advised you not to leave your home at this time.*
Yes, I know that many of us are under stay-at-home orders, but that doesn't mean that you have to stay in your bedroom for 14+ days.
We are all so busy that we often have grand visions of things we can do around our homes - whether we live in a rented studio apartment or a large house. Now is the time to give your living space a little love.
I don't know about you, but my butt is wearing grooves into my couch. Even if you cannot get outside - for whatever reasons - there are ways to move around while stuck inside.
We'd love your ideas on how to beat the boredom during stay-at-home orders. Comment below or email us at TeamStitchLife@stitchlifemag.com. Next week we'll feature ideas on how to practice self care during the virus.
