    I am retired and used to staying at home. But now that I can't go out its driving me crazy.

    Meh, gyms are still open here so the only real difference for me is that my commute went from 1 hour to 5 seconds, I'm working with a better monitor setup and a better chair and I'm saving €250 per month on gas. The wife is a people person so she's far more affected.

    gyms still open?! that's one of the first things they closed round here. I've been doing body exercises in the morning. It's surprisingly effective for only taking 20 min~ or less to complete.

    Small town (50k-ish people) in an already sparsely populated country with rather low infections rates. They limited the hours and you only get in through access keycards so there are far less people. Also sanitizer spots all around... I usually work out in the evenings so it's basically me and 3-4 other people in a 3000ft² gym. Easy enough to keep a safe distance. Quite happy I can still go since I've been on a PR streak for a few weeks now.

    Ive been going thru my sheds, neglected wardrobes, deskdrawers etc and had more crap than i thought. But some were old toys, pc parts and stuff. I kid you not the last 2 weeks ive sold items on ebay for 4000 usd and counting. I expect another 3k, if all the remaining auctions sell. "One mans trash is another mans treasure". Im amazed.

    I already was working from home, so nothing's changed for me, other than not being able to go out as regularly and not having access to the gym.

    That's exactly what I said to him on Discord after he mentioned that.

    I had to buy some adjustable weights, and I think I'm extremely lucky I got them when I did because they've been out of stock since then (immediately being bought up upon re-stocking). Apparently, they're being e-mailed constantly about re-stocking, and so they just put the information at the top of their site, as well as hold raffles for the weights so that the F5-warriors (such as myself) don't immediately buy them all up. I'm still trying to get myself a stand for the weights, since constantly having to crouch down to get them out of the cradle is incredibly tedious.

    Yes, I understand this is a first-world problem, and that people are in much worse situations—I'm just simply stating what my situation is.
    Do not send me a PM if what you want to talk about isn't absolutely private.
    Ask your questions on the forum where others can also benefit from the information.

    I haven't left my place in ~6-8 months. At least not the property. No joke I'm not remotely a people person but I can act the part when needed. For exercise I have a treadmill in another room and a chin up bar. Really don't need anything else.

    The bummer for me is no sporting events now nor in the foreseeable future. I do miss boxing. I'm gonna have to start dining on old cards soon. For now, horizon modded Fallout 4 and the web are keeping me occupied.
