8 Things To Do In Isolation

Posted 4 months ago

 

Isolation has reached every one of us, all around the world. Not knowing what day is it, what week or month it is, and not knowing how to spend the day. No matter your current situation, we know how limiting it can be being left to your own devices. So, we’ve put together an Isolation Checklist to help you navigate your way through whatever your isolation situation might be. Whether you’re looking to learn, be entertained, or connect - we’ve got you covered!

 

CHECK-IN AND STAY CONNECTED

This is one that will keep you busy all throughout your isolation period - keep connected.

One of the most important things you can do during this time is to keep connected with those you love, and that love you. It can help prevent loneliness and disconnection from people, and at times can provide a really well-needed sanity-check. It’s completely okay to not feel yourself, or recognize that all this isolation may not be good for your mental health. This is exactly why it’s just as important to spot the signs in yourself, as well as your friends and family.

Stay connected, and check-in - if you need more information on how to do this, just head to https://movember.com/mens-health/spot-the-signs for more information.

 

GET YOUR CLASSIC AND VINTAGE STYLED BIKE DGR READY

One of the biggest problems DGR riders face is the mad-dash to getting your bike ready for the event in September. It’s always a scramble, with folks getting into gear far too late to make it.

Whether it’s a beautiful classic or custom build, we guarantee that you could do with a bit of extra time to make sure you make it to DGR and don’t need to hitch a ride home on the support truck.

Get yourself into the garage and get wrenching!

 

ORGANIZE YOUR GARAGE

Speaking of the garage, it’s not easy to rebuild or customize a bike in a disorganized space.

If your garage looks like it’s been tipped upside-down and shaken about, it might be time for you to make a functional space to get the job done.

Every space is different, with a variety of tools and layouts to suit your needs - and hey, maybe clutter isn’t a problem for you, but if your build feels stifled, get clearing - you may even find that pesky 10mm.
