Our readers are so busy staying busy they haven’t had time to share what they are doing going into the third month of lockdown, so we ran this Open Thread for a second week.
And more than a hundred of you told us how you are staying occupied. Here’s the breakdown:
Walking or other physical activity: 34 percent
Learning something new: 24 percent
Doing craft projects: 18 percent
Zoom or other online visiting with family and friends: 14 percent
Binge watching TV: 10 percent.
We were amazed by the range and creativity of the solutions in the comments. Some folks amped their musical skills, others found creative ways to do volunteer work or finally tackled a creative project. We’ll be keeping this up for a while so more people can share or find ideas. Go for it!
