We’re like 5 months into this new world so I thought it would be interesting to hear what adjustments and tricks you’ve developed in this time. Some of my pandemic tips:
- I’ve fully adopted the fanny pack lifestyle. They’re called belt bags or running belts now but it’s the same thing: hands-free storage for the few essential items I need when I venture out.
- I put my phone in a Ziploc bag every single time I leave the house. My fingerprint ID and screen work fine through the plastic, and it allows me to use the phone without having to sanitize when I come home.
- Parking lots and empty office building garages make excellent free gyms. They’re good for working out without encountering people (fucking runners without masks passing me on the sidewalk!), plus it’s cooler inside the garage on hot days. Most importantly, they’re actual destinations so I have places to hang out safely outside my apartment.
- Grocery stores are less crowded around 10 am.
What tips do you have? More importantly, how are you doing?
