Astronauts Christina Koch, Chris Hadfield offer tips on surviving prolonged isolation after trips to International Space Station
March 25, 2020 | The Washington Post | By Meagan Flynn.

** “Become experts on the thing that is threatening you,”
** “be your own taskmaster” — develop mini-missions for every day. Follow a schedule.
[On the International Space Station, to-do lists were regimented down to five-minute intervals, for 12 hours a day, seven days a week. Missions ranged from fixing a toilet to investigating the subatomic particles of the universe. But at home on Earth, those missions can be as simple as shaving, gardening, or calling a grandparent. “You should always have objectives every single day,” Hadfield said. “What do I want to get done in the next 10 minutes, and what do I want to do in the next hour? And if today goes perfectly, what will I have done by bedtime tonight?”]
** Pace yourself
** Sleep. Consistent bedtime
** Address loneliness-- the separation from friends and family. [JCK: Connection & Communications] While on the space station, Koch said she was able to video chat with family about once a week. But adapting to virtual relationships wasn’t just about chatting, she said. Feeling connected meant doing fun things together while apart, and sticking to the hobbies she loved back home.
** journaling,
** Going outside when possible,
** Find doable hobbies.

Web Instructions Open the Do-It Yourself World to Everyone - NYTimes.com
By ANNE EISENBERG
April 23, 2011
Web-based instructions — often designed by hobbyists for other hobbyists
— are now supplementing the often-confounding printed directions that
come with such kits. Bloggers who tinker are creating interactive
tutorials, descriptive videos and step-by-step series of photographs
that make it easier for nontechies to go forward confidently. Dozens of
do-it-yourself Web sites, like Evil Mad Scientist, AdaFruit and iFixIt,
also offer tools, components and kits of their own, many aimed at
beginners.Dale Dougherty, editor and publisher of Make magazine, which
sells kits as well as related books and tools at the Maker Shed store on
its Web site, says a new era is opening for people who want to create
things.
