Stay at Home

During the current health crisis, the recent advice is to stay at home. I personally am not working currently (except the odd emails and administration). I do not have any symptoms but I live with my elderly grandfather, so I am staying at home, but I will leave the house to shop for essentials, and pick up prescriptions. I will also go out to exercise 3 or 4 times a week (once a day on those days) outside my home (I am a runner) although I exercised at home in the garden yesterday following a routine on youtube. This is inline with the governments and health organisations current guideline, which the Behaviour Analyst Certification Board (BACB) have recommended ethically Behaviour Analysts enforce. If you want to find out what the current guidelines (for the UK) you can check out the World Health Organisations (WHO), National Health Service (NHS-UK), or the BACB‘s, COVID-19 information page.

This means I have a lot of time on my hands, so I have reevaluated my values and planning to ensure that this time is spent taking committed action towards my values.

N.B. These are references to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), so if you want to learn more about this you can check out my blog post “What is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)?”, or “Getting my ACT together”. Also you could check out my blog about “Setting goals” if you want to know more about how to set goals throughout this time.
