Bring it on.
Amid the lunacy, toilet paper memes and fighting in aisles of the supermarket for the last packet of cheezels in the state, it looks increasingly like we're going to end up locked in our homes. Sure, if it drags on we'll be reduced to eating each other under the smoky haze of what was once a thriving economy and civilization, but until that time comes I think we all need to embrace it for the opportunity it is. Bring it on.
How often do you get the chance to be still? You can't go to work, the gym, the beach, catch up with friends ... anywhere. All you can do is lock yourself in your room. It's what you resented as a kid but have longed for ever since.
All those things you've put off with the wafer-thin excuse of 'I don't have the time'... now is your chance. Think about it, ladies and gentlemen, provided you can do it on your own without interacting others, now you most certainly do have time. Start something. Make something. All those books you wanted to read but never made time... now is your time. All those photos you wanted to peruse and put into some semblance of order ... what are you waiting for? All those clothes tucked away that you're never going to wear... now's your chance to cull them for someone less fortunate. Take a moment to think of what else is in your 'if I was forced to stay indoors...' list. Incidentally, I would suggest working through your list of 'wanna-see' films too, but I'm expecting our feeble NBN to crack under the strain of a population in hiding.
A silver lining approach, sure, but I tend to look at being forced into isolation as an incredible opportunity. Beyond the cupboard and drawer ordering, it's a time to slow and think. It's a time for introspection, to take stock of who you are and where you're going. Those into meditation are possibly looking for someone to high five at this point, but this time is far more about reconnecting with yourself. It's a time to take care of yourself, away from everyone else.
Incidentally, it's funny that teenage you would consider this a punishment, but grown-up you would/should be looking at this completely differently, particularly as what you learned as a teenager is really even more applicable now. You learned what you like and that your ability to comfort (and satisfy) yourself really is in your hands, and you felt better for it. You know you felt better about yourself when you did. Not much has changed on that front, but perhaps you have just needed the excuse or the time to be set aside to make it happen and reacquaint yourself with yourself. And that's what has now been gifted you.
And yes, we at Top Drawer Essentials are bracing for a surge in demand, particularly for 'tools for self-discovery'. Yes, we think all masturbation is good masturbation, but if you're liable to be going at it like a teenager locked away in your room/home, we have lots of goodies to help you on your way. You're wiser than you were as a teen, so of course, now you see the merit in vibrators for the ladies and male masturbators for the guys. And if you're lucky enough to be in isolation with your significant other, we've also got goodies to keep it interesting.
And when all of this is over, whenever that is, you may find yourself reinvigorated, thoroughly de-stressed, confident in who you are and what you want. Alternatively, all you might have to show for your time in isolation is a beautifully ordered sock drawer. It's in your hands.
