Hello everyone! How are you?
There seems no other way to start a conversation in times like these days. I am hoping everyone is safe and healthy while staying at home. And I’m hoping the same for your loved ones too.

When the world was going through this massive craziness out there, (and it still is) I was going through my own craziness. So, on today’s blog post, I wanted to share not only a lovely recipe but how I am tackling the situation and spending time at home.
So that maybe you get ideas or inspirations for what to do at home during lockdown or quarantine!
But before the the chat, wouldn’t you like to have a lovely vegan almond biscuit butter recipe? I thought so!

*I initially was going to tell you about how I spend my time at home so that you can get new ideas or inspiration.
But the post became so long, so I decided that I will make another post just about how I spend my time at home, things to do and tips to make it productive. So stay tuned!

When it comes to nut butters, I always make mine at home. Because it’s fresh, there’s no additives, and I don’t know why but when you make them at home it makes them extra delicious! Maybe the secret ingredient is love for food after all:)

So this one day, I was making my almond butter at home and thought I would make some for my friends too. Then there it was, a packet of lotus caramel biscuit on the side of my tea.
You already know what happened next.. Yes I threw some into the blender and it came out so amazing!

LIFE UPDATE – THE CORONAVIRUS SITUATION

If you are anywhere in the world right now, probably things are not looking so good. And probably under quite a lot of stress. The novel coronavirus has taken over the world, leaving people hopeless and devastated.
I am no exception. I have been experiencing a situation that feels so surreal, strange and overwhelming myself.

Where I live, Tokyo, has just postpone the Olympics and there has been a big spike in infected people. And my heart goes out to all those who are fighting the disease, and in the frontline at the hospitals.

In times like this, I am very grateful that I have things to do at home. I have my blog, I have more time to cook and bake which is kind of a usual thing to do for me but it keeps my mind off a bit of the situation.

I think it is very important to keep optimistic and look on the bright side of every situation that we face in our lives.
And as difficult as this time can be, it’s also very important to take care of yourself especially times like now.

HOW I AM TACKING THE SITUATION

It is easy to get lost in the madness and drawn in the information pouring into your life, and it can be very stressful and uncertain.
And yes I did get lost too. Partly because of the coronavirus but mostly, because my dad has had a heart failure and been sent to the hospital.

I felt hopeless and weak, even had this anger inside me for not being able to help him. But after some time, I realised that feeling this way will not help him but draw all the negativity that I don’t need in my life, nor my dad’s life.

So I once again learnt to take care of myself. Because it is important. It is so important for yourself and your loved ones too.

When you are worried, anxious, angry, or uncertain, those feelings can pass onto your loved ones.
But if you are optimistic, grateful, calm, well taken care of, you will pass these positive feelings to your loved ones, however the situation might look devastating at the moment.

It may not be easy to feel happy now.

BUT I TRY TO BE GRATEFUL FOR LIVING. BREATHING. BEING ABLE TO MOVE MY BODY. HAVING MY FAMILY. HAVING GREAT FRIENDS AND PEOPLE IN MY LIFE. FOR FOOD. WATER. BED. FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY TO CONNECT WITH YOU. IN THIS TIME OF MADNESS.

It’s easier said than done.
I know the situation is different for everyone in the world.
But I would like to think that this situation we are facing now is not only a disaster but a chance to appreciate again for what we have.
And to learn and grow from the experience.
So that we will be better and stronger with more wisdom when this is over.

HOW I AM SPENDING TIME AT HOME

So having talked about how things have been in my life and the importance of taking cake of yourself, what do I exactly do during this time?
Well, I have been doing quite a bit of everything. I have been doing things that I haven’t had time for, like admin tasks etc for my blog.

I also have been doing my regular daily things and hobbies I haven’t had time for too.
And they might seem like little things, but I think this is a good time to get things done and enjoy doing what you love. However little they might seem.

So in the next blog post, I am going to share with you things you can do to improve yourself at home!
Many of them won’t require any special equipments.
They are simple things that brings great meaning and joy into your life.
So stay tuned! And I again am hoping that you all are healthy and safe.
Stay home, stay safe my lovely people!
