I read the other day about couples in quarantine fighting about money spending, where one spouse is concerned about being forced out of work, and the other is stress shopping online.

 

This got me thinking about stress management and the different ways different people express and deal with anxiety.

 

I don’t stress shop, but I can definitely find my way to the fridge back and again ( and again), plus ( actually, that’s not much of a plus), I can become very short-tempered, and generally not a very pleasant person to be around.

 

So I decided I should keep myself occupied.

Lucky for us, spring is here, and even this awful c.virus can’t change the gorgeous weather we have here, which I suspect will turn into a harsh boiling summer in about 2 seconds, so I am making a point of appreciating this split second that the weather is perfect and the mosquitos are not here yet.

There is a lot of work to do in the garden, though I am far from complaining.I love every second of it.

I think that since I am in no way qualified to give any advice on the stock markets, or economic situations, I will say that the only thing, in my opinion, that is totally and completely in our hands ( literally), is learning to rely on our own resources, so as to spend the least amount of money necessary.

I hope the financial situation will get back to usual soon, but until then you can:

#1.instead of ordering take out – get into the kitchen and start cooking.

Get creative, learn new cooking skills ( but please not fancy skills that require special pans).

Make your own pizza, bread, cooked beans, ( dried beans and lentils take considerably less space than canned ones, plus they are cheaper and healthier.

Only too happy to provide you with some options in the links.
