  • I have enjoyed the extra special family time and lots of cuddles of reassurance for my kids. The lack of ironing is also a bonus.

  • I’ve enjoyed life becoming a bit slower & found that without weekends packed with social engagements I’ve been able to have more me time for reading etc. we’ve also bee able to complete some long overdue tasks around the home.

  • I think there are many positives. Spending time with family, I’ve found the enjoyment in cooking and baking again and I have started to sort out though cupboards and spaces so some decluttering. I think it has made me more aware of the importance of relationships.

  • Actiually getting back to what life is about – spending time with our kids and as a family without so much technology… walks, fresh air etc

  • Hubby went cleaning mad during the first two weeks so basically most of the stuff was done then. I’ve made a list of things I can do and I’m checking them off as they are done.

  • Yep decluttered alot but still have alot more to do as well!

  • Honestly, as difficult as it is, there are moments when I sit back and realise how special this time is with our immediate family. Having this bonding time with my kids is priceless. I wish I had time to de-clutter, bit its actually busier now than that it was pre-COVID-19.

  • Spending quality time with my little family. Also, jigsaw puzzles!!

  • Also; it is a good time to do audits on absolutely everything, decide what is essential/non essential and set future goals and plans. In the scheme of things isolation has not been going on for very long compared to some countries.

  • We’ve enjoyed the enforced down time. It’s been nice not having to rush between school, sports etc for a while.

  • We have organised, decluttered, cleaned, planned, completed financial and household audits, engaged in hobbies, taken on new hobbies, connected with friends and family virtually and using other mediums, reflection and meditation time and so many other positives.

  • I think a big positive is it’s slowed life down, allowing more time for things that didn’t get much time before. It’s also increased the time I spend catching up with family. Via phone, social media, even letter writing

  • I do those things all year round, so I don’t have a particular need to do it more now. I read more. And walk more often with my daughter outside.

  • Enjoy spending some more time with my husband.
    Have also enjoyed baking a bit more.

  • I have tried to do all of the above – decluttered (although so things I want to get rid of are still sitting around as can’t take them to ops shops etc), cleaned and moved furniture around in the house for a new feel and am trying to get organised and have routines and healthier habits in place for when life gets back to “new normal”.
