Need to get out of the house

Japan
July 1, 2020 2:13am CST
I have spent all day indoors. I haven't even unhooked my front door latch that I only hook at night after locking. Usually, every day I try to get out and ride my bike for exercise. Today it has been so windy (and rainy in the morning) that I have just hung around inside. The two benefits of that is that I got a couple of things done, including myLot, and that I can't buy anything in the stores if I don't go anywhere! The wind is still strong but not as bad as it was this morning. Maybe I will go for a walk before the sun goes down. Do you get out of your house every day? (When not on holiday, I do.)

With the ongoing pandemic, I do not go out that often anymore. I only go when I have an important thing to do like grocery shopping or doing errands to the bank.

I go out but not always to some place, I sometimes just ride my bike around the neighborhood.

I can happen that I don't go out if I have everything I need at home.

Are you fine with staying in all the time? I sometimes am fine but after being home for four months it's better for my health if I do some exercise like bike riding.

@petatonicsca We have a large garden behind the house and an even larger park five minutes away. I go there, sit on a bench and read when the weather is fine - which it is at the moment.

@MALUSE Nice! I don't have a large garden but there is a small forested park and a small barren park close to me. The barren park is new and it has some small trees which should grow into shade in a few years.

@petatonicsca I go out if do not have to go anywhere to throw out the garbage. I prefer to stay inside and only go out when have to. I hate going out these days. That is great that you ride a bike. I have not ridden a bike in ages.

Nope, we need to get out from the house sometime, we don't want to suffocate being in the house only.

For me it depends on the day. If it's too rainy, I have no motivation to go out.

You must have someone who can shop for you. Or do you get groceries delivered?

@Ivanfadli_05 Hello, and welcome to myLot. The first thing you should do when you get a chance is to follow the link I have provided to read the site FAQ and Guideline pages so you can become familiar with what is and is not allowed here. I hope you enjoy your stay.
Have questions about myLot? Help is here!

I try to get out a bit every day. Not necessarily for exercise, but sometimes. I went out and sat on the swing this morning, before I even had coffee.

Just being outside is nice and relaxing, I think.

I do get outdoors everyday due to working in our gardens. Today it is far too hot to be out there, however. I hope you get a chance to be out of the house for a bit.

Gardens are very nice to be in.

Wow, I don't buy things every day, just go out and feel the wind, see the sun or clouds, and sometimes go to the shops.
