In this post, I want to share what I learned from 3 1/2 months of bed rest about overcoming boredom. I have had two periods of bed rest, one with each of my pregnancies and the longest one was for 3 1/2 months. During these times I struggled with boredom, loneliness, lack of routine and not feeling like I was contributing to the wider world. This is what I learned. I hope it helps you navigate some of the difficulties that come with coronavirus.
