Successful Aging: Why has the pandemic caused me to procrastinate?

Q. I have become a professional procrastinator. Since the virus and being self-quarantined, there is no urgency in my life; no one expects anything from me and I have nowhere to go. As a successful semi-retired businesswoman, my life was full and busy doing things for my business, interacting with customers and seeing my grandchildren. I miss the rides to the city, my grandchildren’s baseball games and the summer plans taking them to the Hollywood Bowl. My book group no longer meets; I started three books and haven’t finished any of them. I just can’t get anything done and it is so unlike me. Any suggestions? N.N. Dear N.N. Your life and so many others have been abruptly cut off with no play
