Foil Slippers

During the pandemic, doctors urge us to leave the house as rarely as possible. Of course, going to work is out of the question. However, not everyone can order food delivery so we still need to go to the store once in a while. Usually, it is best to walk rarely, once every few days, but buy in bulk.

After one such trip to a supermarket (for some reason, the best ones are always far away), you usually can’t feel your legs. This is where aluminum foil comes in handy. Make slippers out of several layers of foil and put them on your feet for 15–20 minutes, while just lying on the bed.

If one of the batteries in your TV remote doesn’t work and you don’t have an extra one at hand, make a cylinder out of foil and place it instead of one of the batteries. The foil will allow you to use the device for a little while.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
