Survive Self-Isolation: Seek out the positive and you will find it in these unprecedented times.

The one thing we have is time

Time to connect with the people we live with,
Time to work on ourselves,
Time to re-prioritise and re-focus on the things that are important to us,
Time to reflect on freedom—the freedom that so many of us took for granted—the freedom that so many people around the world do not have,
Time to be grateful and create joy in our lives,
And time to bake and craft beautiful meals with our families…yes! Here are some exquisite keto recipes that you can make with the whole family…why not cook up a storm during self-isolation?!

And if baking is not your thing, how about online Yoga? Working out at home? Perhaps enjoy a brilliant podcast or indulge in a great read?

Here are our top picks for enjoying life and developing yourself at home in times of a lock down

How can you create more joy in your life during self-isolation?

Especially with gyms and leisure centres being closed down…

Get Outside and Breathe

Gardening, this is a great time to reconnect with nature if you have a garden. Indulge in long walks outside too—aren’t we blessed with this sunshine?

Stretch the Body and Soothe the Mind with Yoga

Personally, I LOVE Yoga with Adriene. Her yoga instruction is heartfelt, down to earth and she is quite the comedienne!


Pop Sugar run some fantastic—and extremely tiring HIIT workouts, especially the Raneir Pollard series—he is hilarious—you will definitely tire out both sets of cheeks!

Brilliant Podcasts

James Altucher has aired some positively enlightening podcasts on the Corona Virus with respect to global economics.

Great Reads

My favourite fiction read from this year has been The Ocean at the End of Lane by Neil Gaiman and my most valuable  non-fiction book of the past 4 years has been Mindlift: Mental Fitness for the Modern Mind by Kasper van der Meulen.

For those of you working from home next week, have a read of this in-depth article on how to optimise your productivity and focus. I have been working from home for the past three years and have collated the most effective tips and habits for maximising productivity here on the LIV NRG blog. I hope you find it useful.

Thrive and survive self-isolation: a lock down doesn’t have to be negative…let’s turn a negative into a positive. Have a beautiful, joyful day.

I would love to know how you are spending your time and creating more joy in your life. Let me know in the comments section below.

    Sounds great – as long as there is enough food to buy in the supermarkets.

    WE are self employed. No knowing where our next pay cheque is coming from. Might not have enough money to buy food, let alone bills!!!!! And that’s if we don’t get ill.
    Failing to see the poistives at the momeht……….

      Hi Evie,
      I agree these are hard times. I am also self-employed, so I understand the strife. The point of this article is to hone in on the positives, despite the chaos, uncertainty and fear.
      Because this is all temporary.

      The one thing we do know is that it will pass and hopefully we can be better prepared–on a global scale–for the next pandemic, as pandemics will increase in occurrence as the world’s population grows. This is inevitable.

      It is unlikely that we will actually run out of food; the mass panic and overreaction from the public is intensifying the problem and the media are sensationalising and creating even more fear. Eventually people will calm down.

      The other good news is that China and South Korea have seen their Covid-19 death rates fall and they are re-opening up factories and retail. This means that (hopefully) things will go back to normal over here in two months…

      On a national level, perhaps we should petition the government to support self-employed people too?
