Quarantine Musings #6

Never did I think that one day I would have to make a strict timetable of sorts to ‘watch and consume news updates’.

Apparently my grandpa feels like watching COVID-19 related news so much each day that we barely get to watch anything else on our television!

How does your family take in the news updates?

What are Quarantine Musings? Just some random, trivial, light-hearted (or maybe even deep?) thoughts that pass through my mind during these lockdown days.

  1. We try to limit our exposure as the cumulative effect of all the hourly updates is very stressful and contributes to feeling overwhelmed! We focus on the positives to lift our mood and spirits!

  2. We have to because if not the news will consume us! I admit, I don’t usually watch the news much anyway, just enough to stay informed of what’s going on around me. But during this pandemic, I have really stepped back from it.

  3. In my family, someone follows the news of this topic. When this appears on the screen I leave the room and do something else, anyone: read, sort my books, listen to radio, receive the sun in the backyard, look at the birds that lean on the telephone pole…

    The serious damage this has caused deserves no more publicity, as a way of protest.

  4. I don’t, and I let my husband update me with written articles that he found in his reading time. We definitely keep it very minimal.

  5. Me and my family see news while eating breakfast, lunch and dinner. At other times, we watch movies, play family games and cook or bake together. This lockdown has taught us a lot, including lots of family time!
