Enjoy the Outdoors!

Summer is upon us and lots of energy and excitement is in the air despite the pandemic. Summertime
is a great time to enjoy outdoors.

Remember, practicing social distancing, avoiding gathering in large groups, staying away from others is especially important on what we can control in difficult times like this.

Let's entertain ourselves outdoors! (For the sake of mental health.)

Hope you have a beautiful weekend! xx

Socializing at a Distance

Summertime is upon us, and with the ongoing pandemic I've been figuring out how to connect with friends while trying to stay safe. In fact, I'm craving for interactions with close friends.

So I compiled a list of social-distancing get-together ideas and things to do this summer season.

Social-Distancing Get-Together Ideas

. Spend time at a park.

.Take a family picnic.

. Go for a long hike.

. Organize social-distancing hikes with friends.

. Go for a nature walk.

. Trips to the beach (bringing a large blanket to make staying apart easier).

. Take a Staycation.

That way you've got your social distance and socialize safely!

When the world feels like too much, stop and breath. Relax your mind. Listen to the sound of the ocean, enjoy the light breeze...
I know it will be a different kind of summer this year, but there are still ways to get plenty of fun in the sun. I secretly love summer.

Have a lovely weekend! Happy 4th of July to my American fellow bloggers and readers! xx

Keeping Active and Connected

So the other day I decided to leave my house to take a walk around my neighborhood. Just wanted to breath in the fresh air since the weather is quite lovely. Had to cross to the other side of the street whenever I saw someone coming. This used to be rude; now it's good manners because now there's an etiquette.
As I walked, I noticed a lovely bougainvillea blooming along the street.

I also made a list of activities I can engage in; like cooking, reading books, watching movies, getting around to the chores I've put off, going online to find inspirational photography videos, and going outside to exercise.
It just helps me to clear my mind and just relax. I dare you to try it.

It's okay to feel anxious during these difficult times of Covid-19. Keeping active and connected has never been more essential.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! xx

Oh, How Amazing! + Have a Lovely weekend

Title: New York - United States - January 01. LIFE photographer Margaret Bourke-White making a precarious photo from the Chrys.

I've always admired the courage of some people and the passion that drives them. And photographer Margaret Bourke-White is one of them. Margaret Bourke-White was an American photographer and documentary photographer known for her extensive contributions to photojournalism, particularly for her Life magazine work. It is for this reason that we need photographers.

Have a great weekend! xx

Will Life Go Back to Normal?

How are you doing?

Self Quarantine Diary: May 12, 2020

In the times of Coronavirus everything feels too hard. Fear-driven behavioral changes, low mood and anxiety. It seems like things I previously enjoyed no longer hold the same joy.
I knew that somehow I had to face my anxiety so I've decided to ignore my fears and worries that are holding me back, and I'm starting with the..."Get dressed every day even if you won't leave the house."
I'm just hoping for better days to come! Stay safe, take care!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. xx

Happy May Day 2020!

Happy May Day, everyone! I hope y'all are doing well staying safe in quarantine. In the times of Coronavirus...but cannot keep Spring from coming.

May day is a national, public holiday in many countries across the world usually celebrated on May 1 every year. It is an ancient European Festival of Spring. Also, May Day is a celebration of laborers and the working classes, in most cases as "Labor Day", "International Workers Day" (Wiki).

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Explore and enjoy nature in your own backyard! xx
