A rock band from the United States, The Flaming Lips, organized a plastic bubble concert.  Both the musicians and the audience were on their own premises.  The recital took place during the show "The Late Show", but the band is not the first experience of this kind.


The huge inflatable ball is a symbol of the soloist - he often appears at concerts so that fans can hold him more easily in his arms, and he even got married in a bubble.

 The reaction of the US press and Internet users was varied - some said it was the perfect solution to attend pandemic concerts, others that it was an example of dystopia.

 The Flaming Lips is an alternative rock band formed in 1983. The group has three Grammy Awards, two of which for best instrumental rock performance.  The band was placed in 2002 by the British magazine "Q (stores)" in the top "50 groups to see before you die".

useful-tips-to-get-easier-through-self-isolation

In recent weeks, we all have had to step far beyond the boundaries of our comfort zone.  The inability to go out, anxiety for oneself and loved ones, a change in habits, the uncertainty of the future - all these factors cause stress.


In such a difficult and stressful situation, it is important to eat right, not to forget about physical activity and monitor your emotional state.  


Proper nutrition

Our mood is influenced by a lot of factors.  One of them is the surrounding colors. It is very important to have foods of all colors in the diet: for example, red tomatoes, orange oranges, yellow apples, green lettuce and parsley, purple eggplant and basil.  This diversity also allows you to increase the amount of antioxidants, vitamins and trace elements in the diet, and it is also very useful for our microbiota.


Plan the menu for the next 3-4 days and write a list of everything you need.  If you have a plan, then there will definitely be much less harmful goodies in your basket.


Physical activity

You eat food several times a day.  Accordingly, calories, together with protein-fats-carbohydrates, enter your body properly.  And if you do not spend them just as well, then they will begin to settle in the form of fat deposits on the stomach, hips and buttocks.  Being in isolation and not being able to go through at least 10 thousand steps, you need to do exercises every day.



Psychological comfort

The state of routine in ordinary life a person withstands in many respects due to the potential ability to get out of it.  He knows that one day there will come a day off, a holiday or a trip to a restaurant. Even for those people who have not left their homes for years, such a theoretical possibility exists and makes life bearable.


In a changing situation, it is important to carry out all the daily activities that a person is used to.  Remain in the present without thinking about the future, because no one can know anything about it.

how-to-organize-your-program-when-you-stay-home-during-quarantine

The coronavirus pandemic forces most people to dramatically change their daily routine, given to the isolation measures taken by the authorities.  It is important to organize our time correctly and have a productive quarantine.

5 important elements in a day's program!

 In this written schedule we must keep in mind, in writing, five elements daily:

• Basic activities (eg hygiene, meal, study / service, interpersonal relationship, play / relaxation, sleep).  •Psychologists stress the importance of dieting "which needs to be controlled rigorously to be healthy" and sports activities, both of which contribute to maintaining good health.

 •At least one behavior that we enjoy: watching a movie / reading a book / sport, etc.

 •At least one defining behavior in our personality: "If we are sociable / extroverted, we can call for social support those who need it."

 •At least one behavior related to our set of values ​​/ principles and then we focus on making decisions: "If generosity is a value for you, you can volunteer to help in this period," details the psychologist.


 Socializing behaviors seen as an antidote to stress: “Physical isolation does not mean psychosocial isolation.  In this process of socialization, although it is good to plan many activities together in the couple / family, it must be left a personal space, ”explains David.

 

The program must be checked, that’s the best way to respect the schedule.

 The psychologist states that "it is important for someone to check us, once or twice a day, that we follow and implement the schedule, especially for those of us who know we have difficulties in self-discipline.  This supportive monitoring is fundamental especially for the elderly in isolation and can be done by relatives or friends. " If the schedule is not implemented effectively, David recommends "we analyze the causes, eliminate them and redo it until it becomes accepted."

 "These practices will become a new healthy routine of life, some things can be kept then in the post-crisis period!", Concludes the psychologist.

6. But it’s light.

7. Or so. It seems more strange.

8. And just a masterpiece.

9. Bugs bunny is that you?
