Should you try to 'Improve yourself' in isolation?

There is an aspect of the coronavirus pandemic that affects Cyclones in most of us, but no one talks about the problem: quarantining sin.

Guilt isolation until you start to feel a little calmer. It climbs up to you when you wake up after lying and lingering all day - when you check Instagram, when you chat with friends - leaving you feeling paranoid and ashamed.

What is sin quarantine? It feels that you should do something more to improve yourself. That you should keep up with friends who are bragging about their daily activities, their newly cooked meals, their new language skills

And then there are tweets like this:
Do these people have a point? Is quarantine time to fulfill your goal or time to relax? This is what I thought.

Handle all this excess time

On the one hand, if there's something you want to achieve, like learning a language, it makes sense to use this time to work towards this ambition.

With time saved by not attending lectures, seminars and social events, you may end up wriggling your thumb for a few days without a lot of work to do.

If this is you, check out our list of 25 useful things to do while society is distant.

Also, if you want to use this time to relax, that's great too! Relax, watch movies, read books. In the end, we stayed home to stay safe - not an extended self-improvement process.

Some people thrive on stress - others have nothing. Both are fine.

If you're a good performer in a stressful situation, that's good for you - that's great. But most people do not donate.

Anyway, it's good, so don't feel pressured to compete or compare yourself with people who seem to be doing well during this time.

Even the most productive, happy people will have bad days. Nobody is on top 24/7. They just choose not to show this side of themselves on social media.

Staying healthy and keeping your mental health in check is an achievement in itself

It is perfectly normal to feel worried about what happens during these unusual times. However, this anxiety may affect some people more seriously than others.

If you're worried, the National Health Service (NHS) recommends trying to focus on what you can control, who you talk to and where and how often you receive information about coronavirus. The NHS gives advice on dealing with anxiety here.

It's important to let yourself be sad when you feel that, and allow yourself to appreciate the happier moments of your day.

Exercise is important - but don't punish yourself

We all know that there are many benefits of exercise. Exercise can help you sleep well by helping you relieve some of the stress build up during the day. Exercise has also been shown to reduce stress, anxiety and depression. Of course, it also benefits your physical health, helping your cardiovascular system work more effectively.

However, promoting yourself to actually exercise can be a bit of a hurdle. The trick is not to see it as a chore, but to come up with some new and creative ways to work: whether it's a dance, walking the dog or cleaning the house. If it causes your heart rate to rise slightly, you will be on the right track.


Do whatever makes you feel happy and safe. No one will judge you about what you have or heaven achieved. It is a global pandemic - you don't always need to be okay.

Remember: everyone is worried, everyone is scared - we did this together.

Here are a few things I find relaxing when I have a holiday:

Take a long bath with bubbles and candles
Read a book (anything of Nora Ephron is mine personally)
Watch a TV show from my childhood / teenage years (such as G Rum Girl, Victorious, Doctor Who or Gilmore Girls)
Call my mom or my best friend
Sipping a cup of coffee while watching birds out the window
Write something. Whatever. Bonus points for Garbage.
