Hey sparehead and Amanda2000,
My sister lived with mum for a bit of covid last year and she also found it really tough. In some way, I'm quite glad I live alone, though I appreciate there are many others who don't thrive alone.
Luckily, I'm not in one of the curfew areas but I am in the inner west with quite a few cases, so I've stopped doing late night walks. I suppose there's no one outside anyway, but I think I've just created an internal rule to not go outside unless I really need to. I haven't found it too bad without my walks - I just do yoga and reading, sometimes listen to an interesting podcast, and I've also found some really fun puzzle games on the xbox which are surprisingly stimulating but also relaxing at the same time. I also have pets so they keep me very busy.
Hope you are doing well :)
Oh! One of the things that has been really irritating is I've got construction next door and it's just constant noise from morning to arvo, so I don't even go out to my garden as much anymore. I used to just sit out there to read and relax, but with construction noise, I only do it to get some sun...
