Introduce us to who is at home.

We are a small family, my dear husband Oron and my son Amit that he is one year and two month's old, but who is counting… ☺
Almost forgot to remind my beautiful dog James, he is 4 years old.

How are you living the day to day?

I didn’t have a job before all this situation of the Corona start, I was looking for one and Oron worked but his employer has decided to sent him home with no salary. We are going for a walk 3-4 times a day. Our dog is very happy with that situation.

What routines do you follow? What do you do for:

Stay active (sport or practice): we go for a walk a few times a day with our son and dog.

Feel good mentally and emotionally: I am happy that this point came naturally given the situation. I have this routine before, like going out with my dog, going out with my son, cooking... but now I enjoy that even more since my husband is with us too. 

Stay connected to your family and friends: almost every day we speak with our family on zoom. 

Is there anything you've incorporated into your life that makes you feel better that you didn't do before?

At first I was very confused. I didn’t know how to relate to it. As time went on I decided to take this period as an opportunity. Opportunity to stop the race of life and to focus. To focus on my son's amazing development and on the quality time with my husband.

What do you miss most?

 I miss to visit family and friends.


How do you think your life will be after this experience, do you feel that things will change and in which way?

Before the Corona I was in a crossroad in my life. I was after almost one year at home with my son looking for a job but I didn’t know what job I really wanted to do. I felt so much pressure. Now that the whole world stopped, I feel calmer so I believe when all this will be over I will approach this (the searching for a job) from a better place internally.

What's the first thing you'd like to do when all this will be over?

The first thing I would like to do it's seeing my father who I didn’t see for two months now.

In this situation we look more inward, what do you have learned from yourself/others that you did not know?

I don’t know how to explain this but I feel that I enjoy more the "small" things in my life. I realized that I can enjoy those things more than I thought. I think that the reason of it is because when we are in the daily routine we are always thinking about the day after. This situation forced us to be in the present moment.

Tell us a funny situation that has happened to you since you've been in quarantine.

The first time I went to the supermarket after all this starts I needed to use gloves and in some point I didn’t know what to do, I mean if I touched the staff and then I needed to give my credit card, could I be using the same gloves? ☺\

What would be interesting for you to know about how other people are living through this situation?

I would like to know if they feel any live any mental changes and how this is affecting in their lives. Another thing I would like to know is how a family with the same status as us, how they manage and spend the time with a 1 year old baby. What activities they are doing and what do they do for themselves. How they organize the day, the time?
