COVID-19 has meant that our trusty volunteers have been working remotely. Their time in isolation has been busy and meaningful. We took this opportunity to catch up with a few of our colleagues to find out what they’ve been doing in iso.
What have you been doing to maintain physical health?
I’ve been doing something new every day. Currently, I’m restoring a bentwood chair.
How have you been maintaining your eye health?
As always, I use the Amsler grid on my fridge and check for changes in my vision after waking up. And of course, I’m eating large quantities of spinach every day and taking my AREDS supplements.
What have you been doing to maintain a positive frame of mind?
My lovely wife Mary and I have been listening to music, doing a lot of gardening, and we’ve had some lovely walks around the suburb. We’re also doing an online astronomy course with U3A Newcastle Uni. We answer
questionnaires at the end of each session. It’s been a great way to keep our minds active.
What have you missed while in isolation?
Taking my lovely girl Mary to morning tea at Impact nursery café.
