There is a whole range of things you can buy online and have

- Keep healthy, physically and mentally
Keeping healthy is the most important thing you need to consider
during this time. Staying active, eating healthy and maintaining human
interaction through your phone and computer.
You can’t go to the gym, but you do have space out on the lawn and
the know-how to do anything! (Thanks Google). There are some great
training apps out there that can give you a cracking workout and you
don’t even need any equipment. Chris Hemsworth is providing a free
6-week offer for his new training app Centr.
Meditation and yoga are also options to help you maintain mental
strength and focus. Apps like Calm have started specific campaigns for
meditating to help you keep a positive mental space and stay grounded
during this time.

the same time for a fun movie night during isolation!
- How do astronauts cope with the isolation?
Astronaut Chris Hadfield knows what it feels like to be isolated for
long periods of time in space. On his first space mission the internet
was a relatively new thing and social media was still a few years away
yet. But he didn’t find space to be lonely or isolating. Technology has
eased the difficulty of isolation, but the biggest challenge is managing
the change to your routine and how we manage the psychological
boundaries of what’s normal. Chris says now is a great time to engage in
education, to sign up to an online course or learn an instrument. Maybe
you could learn Space Oddity by David Bowie too… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KaOC9danxNo
