I've finally gathered up the courage to at least enquire about re-joining the gym next week.

I joined the gym back in march to help with my depression and anxiety, but the lockdown thwarted my attempt literally the same week.

Hoping I can get the ball rolling again and nothing stops me this time.

ive been back for a week just swimming but im definitely seeing the benefits of a distraction .... dont know what company  but they  do seem quieter and therefore safer than  before .... mine requires booking so that limits the numbers ... and I see constant cleaning too ...

That's good! Does anyone have to wear masks inside the gym at all?

For me its less distraction and more so getting out of being socially isolated, its got to the point where taking the risk to go out is necessary

Are human gyms suitable for someone of your species?

in mine no they dont .... im nuffield health but ive not been in any close situations .... Some staff wear them and I wear mine when I enter and leave but not a requirement .....  good shout though I think it will help exercise is good for the mind anyway ... and helpful to be fit with covid too ... so theres no negatives to seeing how you go .... they are also pretty understanding with putting things on a temporary hold should you need to ... go for it and keep us updated how you get on :)

It might sound silly but it's something I really look forward to (a new console) and I'm super pumped for it. Gaming has been something thats helped me get through lockdown big time, and in general with mental health issues I've had over the years. It's something that can cause me to fully switch off the anxiety and worries for a period of time.

Mate, I spend my time talking nonsense to strangers on the internet using a fictional alien character from a sci fi tv show as my pretend name. Don't apologise to me for sounding silly!

I love video games, but ended up so far behind the curve I'm just miles away from current gen consoles. So I went the other way and full retro!

Ha! I remember seeing Finlay at Glasto (1998, I think?) - I've never seen anyone more stoned performing on stage!!!!

Bit late answering this, but Gengahr are great live. I actually won tickets to a gig of theirs in a tiny basement bar right before Covid hit. The sweat dripping off the low ceiling kinda bar. It was tremendous fun. How that translates into a bigger festival venue I don’t know, but I’d highly recommend them.

Gengahr were great, unfortunately they had a few technical issues and were late starting which resulted in only a 45 minute set. Another Sky were good, very similar to London Gramma as were Indoor Pets although the lead singer’s vocals could grate on some people.

Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure is one of the few movies that actually gets time travel right. 

Plus it had a skateboarding Genghis Khan.

I posted on the how do you feel thread last night that listening to a busker playing really cheered me up, especially when he played a few tunes that had Glastonbury significance for me personally.  So if you fancy some live music go and find a good busker or street musician. It’s a great feeling listening and interacting with a live performance once again!
