A Few of Our Quarantine Things

By May 11, 2020Pilates In Holland

We have all been coping with quarantine in different ways, and we all have our things. Maybe not raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, but activities, foods, friends, and more that are helping us through these difficult times. Here’s how the staff at Pilates in Holland is coping, share some of yours in the comments!

Mandy: My 22 chickens, especially Ladybird! Gardening is one of my favorite ways to enjoy my days. Friends & family conversations daily are a real essential piece for me. I’m a community girl and my Pilates family keeps me moving and growing. 


Debra’s Top 10 list for making it through Covid-19:
10) The Great British Baking Show & The Voice with my family
9) The Durrells in Corfu
8) Virtual Happy Hours
7) Funny Corona Virus memes via Instagram
6) Pilates
5) Long walks alone
4) Long showers
3) Hard seltzers, all varieties
2) Pringles
1) Girlfriends via Marco Polo!!!!!


Jayne: What’s getting me through depends on the day:). Talking with family and catching up with friends, baking bread, producing and learning how to edit videos (music and Pilates), and lots of Pilates, walks, sunshine, and seeing the flowers bloom!  


Jessica‘s Quarantine Winners:
1) My ‘Sisters Wives’ (aka girlfriends) on Marco Polo! (Or whatever app we end up on any given day!)
2) Sharing the cooking load with hubs and his willingness to do the shopping!
3) THE SUN and getting outside to move every day.


Kari: The things that lift me up daily

  • getting outside
  • Meditation
  • Self-care
  • Pilates
  • Laughter lots of laughter
  • Music
  • Chocolate


Renee: I have been enjoying taking walks and listening to good fiction as well as playing board games with family and baking. Morning Pilates and video chatting with friends also brighten up my days.


Teresa: I’m still working full-time for Haworth so my days are busy, but my cat Bennett is helping me get through spending my days working on the computer by watching over me while I work.  Working out and keeping in contact with my family and friends is also helping.


Terree: What’s getting me through is daily walks, journaling (something I’ve never done before), and moving forward with Pilates teacher training with such a supportive team.
