Hoie, hoe gaat het? Or "Hey, how are you?" in Dutch. I really want to know. And I really keep you in my prayers even though I do no know you. I pray for my readers but also humankind in general simply because we all need some support. Please do not look down on me if you aren't spiritual. Just consider me as someone who thinks of you and wishes you well.
Do you read more now that you might have more time? I say "might" because many of us still need to work outside of our homes. Then you probably do not have more time. Also, you might have to help your children with school from home, which is indeed time-consuming.
One of my strategies to get through cancer and the lock-down is to use it for things I usually have no time. Reading non-fiction books for self-improvement is one of them. When I was off work because of bad mental health, I was introduced to "Mindfulness - A Practical Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World." by my GP. It has helped me to develop ways to deal with anxiety and depression. I saw recently that they also have a book to deal with pain.
When I was diagnosed with cancer, I decided to work through this book to be able to deal with the side-effects of cancer treatment. What makes these books so compelling is, they are based on scientific research but combined with practical experiences by the authors. That is a powerful mix. If you struggle with your mental health, I can only suggest you try it out.

Hello everybody, how are you doing? I hope life is treating you well and if not that you find pockets of time for self-care. Self-care is even more important then.
Life is moving on in Bee-Land. After 1 1/2 years I have managed to get a job. Not quite sure when I will start but it's close by and a couple of hours so I can keep up with blogging and coding. Speaking of which...
Last week I managed to get the basic HTML done for the survey form. I still struggle to get an idea how to see the HTML (content of page) bits as blocks so I can add the CSS (how these blocks are styled) and create with it as I please. My idea was to get two columns in my form so I can ask both for "Bee Coding & SelfCaring" and for "The Bee Writes...".
I tried out CSS flexbox (adds rows and columns so you can create different parts in your page) but I get something wrong and it doesn't show up as two columns. The problem is that you have to be pretty exact in naming anything otherwise it doesn't work. Maybe I had most right but wrote "column" wrong? Hmmmmm....
I deleted everything I did and will start from the beginning tomorrow... hopefully. Another standstill here. That's frustrating and frustration isn't a good thing for my wellbeing. That is why I am going a little further in my self-care. Besides concentrating on my breath and being mindful I am going to add some extra meditation for tomorrow morning.
Do you struggle with a challenge? And what do you do to keep your wellbeing on track?

This is a wonderful chant dedicated to the Indian God Ganesh who helps to remove all obstacles. This is what I am going to meditate about tomorrow.
In this sense
Happy Coding and Self-Caring!!!!!
