I know its not the biggest thing in the world but the next couple of months of Spring weather will be amazing and worth going for a nice morning/afternoon walk for fresh air and time with my thoughts. Stop and look at a nice view or whatever. Reflect.

Sometimes its just the little things.

Yep, keep thinking this myself. With any luck, we might get some eased restrictions in Melbourne at the same time

I don’t know, this week has been tough on me with the nice weather

Once the arvo hits and you finish work and the sun is out and you realize you can’t go out and enjoy it that’s when it really hits home how f’ed this really is

walk every day, in the morning is the best time imo but do it any time you can. Additionally walk twice a day 3-4 days of the week. It will make a big difference.

These last few weeks have been horrific. But there is an upside.
Get into the sun and make positive changes.
I feel really positive today. Things turn. I made a few dietary changes got some perspective and face it this nonesense with covid is on its last legs. People are fed up and seeing it for the scam it is.
Now granted I'm still f’ed up. But take one positive step stick to it and things can fall into place

I don't know what to think anymore. Some of my working circumstances have improved recently so I should feel happy and I'm aware plenty have it worse but today's announcement has just been a complete punch in the guts. Was I expecting them to just go "open her up boys"? No. But for a while I'd been hearing of the cases going down so started to feel a bit better, so I was trying to get through the weeks by trying to look forward to seeing a few friends or just being able to get out of my suburb. Now it's nothing again. Just feel hopeless.


I feel completely trapped. I do things, have hobbies but nothing can replace the social interaction and activities I've engaged in my whole life. I ******* hate being inside all the time.

Honestly today’s announcement is the first one to hit me hard in the Corona times. I’ve tried to focus on how lucky I am (still employed, no kids, living with my partner etc). But this is just utterly sh*t. This year is now a complete rite off and likely a chunk of 21 will be as well.

Yep it's cooked. I have tried all throughout this period to read and watch stories of hardship during war etc and I do realise that they had it far worse off. But there is something completely unique about hardly being able to leave your house, unable to see friends/family for months and all the other stuff that this has created. Humans have interacted with one another from the beginning of time. From my point of view as a young person I was hoping to meet someone eventually.I also just enjoy getting out and hanging out with people my age. Some of my friends don't care about the lockdown because they get out of the house and see a partner. It's infuriating.

We aren't in those times I try that too but our problems can't be sort of say fixed by thinking of worse....makes sense to me sort of

Vitamin D. It helps. I actually tend to get flat in Winter. (Worse than usual) Get outside and absorb the sun now (I'm in Melb) as it will help you absorb and get used to having the sun on your back so to speak. Most people wait till summer when it's too hot and get burnt to a crisp. Condition now. Ironically enough you are more likely to develop a Corona Virus in late winter when Vitamin D deficient (why flus spread less in summer).

Stay in the best shape possible and slowly get outside for as much time as you can. Makes summer more enjoyable.

I'm the opposite. The heat really gets me down and the sun is too bright and overbearing. Still enjoy being active in nature, out and about, i just end up missing the cold over the summer.

There's trade offs. Melbourne gets 4 seasons so your never stuck but comes with extremes. Can be bloody freezing in mid winter but 45+ in summer with relentless hot nights that turn your room into a sauna. Somewhere like Queensland you get the nice winters but bloody hot in summer and can get endless days of rain where it doesn't stop.
Just get outside when it suits. Ended up waking up @ 5 30 this morning and while not great and I'm tired it was nice to get out this morning while its still.
Just make the best of each day.

I love the variability of Melbourne's weather. Although I kind of wish winter was slightly cooler.
There's nothing better than 3 days in a row of 40+ heat, then a sudden cool change on day three.

It's ironic that this socially inept person is missing the simple things, like ordering a coffee from a cafe. I know I would overthink the situation before and after the event, but the overwhelming feeling of loneliness this lockdown has brought on me has made me yearn for them fears again.

Yeah this virus thing has made me more lonely than I already was too. Terrible.

I hadn't even considered this but I agree. Thinking positively there might be a chance that this period of isolation might allow some people to enjoy interactions more when we can go out again. I feel like I might have a bit more perspective when worrying about interacting with others in the future.

I would love this to be a knock-on effect of the lockdown, hopefully I get a honeymoon period before my insecurities kick in again.

Well as someone who is totally socially inept and is a write off. I feel more lonely then ever. I just want to go out and have a chat with anyone.

Maybe a better world will be born after?

Get out if you can mate, walk around the block. Get some sun. I am here if you need to talk.
I've been going with my only friend lately but he's been busy. Gotten to the point I'm too socially anxious to walk or run in my neighbourhood anymore. Probably the depression and the fact the private areas I run in are closed.
