being sedentary and feeling isolated during lockdown

I'm wondering how the pandemic and lockdown has affected you all... Have you been more reflective? Felt more nostalgic? Have you made any self-promises or promises to others to do something in the near future (when things like travel and entertainment return on a wide scale)? Is there anything you've found to be particularly comforting or helpful in maintaining a strong mindset during the past year?

Feels weird to everyone I guess. Personally I low key like it because I can work without feeling guilty about having to go out haha :) No but hopefully things will return back to somewhat normal soon. Would be nice to socialize with people as usual again

I have been more reflective about the choices I made and the future. I think the pandemic as accentuated the good and bad.

Self motivation is critical to get up and walk and also to contact others. Be strong.
I like plants
I've been really feeling isolated since winter started. When the weather was nice I spent a lot more time outside and had a lot more conversations with my neighbors. I actually felt way more connected to my neighborhood and my own backyard and garden this summer than ever before. But now I barely leave the house. Can't wait until spring.

@christine_renee the winter season can be tough. I'm looking forward to the spring, too!
