Woah - 2020 has been a pretty "special" year, hasn't it!!!
I feel like we started off the decade super excited about our awesome plans and somewhere along the way, we took a sharp unexpected turn off the motorway and are now bumping along a rocky unmarked path - unsure of where we are headed or when we will get there! ?
We've all been impacted in a variety of ways, so first of all - WELL DONE, for hanging in there! You are doing great!!! ?
Some people have thrown themselves into overdrive; taking business online and doing everything they can to keep moving forward. Others have gone the other way, taking themselves offline completely - needing time to process everything and maybe just focus on family.
I myself spent the first week or so feeling pretty unsettled and more than a little overwhelmed but I think the kids and I are slowly settling into our new normal thankfully.
There really is no right or wrong approach here - just do what works for you TODAY. #onedayatatime (Confession: I'm more like #onehouratatimenow - lol! ?)
I wanted to share my 3 quick tips that have helped me stay grounded during this difficult time:
1) Mindset - I constantly remind myself that this situation is temporary and there will be life (and work / income) post Covid-19. So I'm focusing on laying the groundwork now so I can hit the ground running whenever that may be.
2) Family - weekly video calls with friends and family has really helped with isolation.
3) Daily walks - I have 2 young boys with bundles of energy - so our hour outside has been a life and sanity saver. The gorgeous weather we are currently having doesn't hurt either. ?
I've started a bucket list for life post Covid19. Mine includes a spa weekend ALONE and dining like a king at my favourite restaurants. What's the first thing you're going to do when we are free again?
Hang in there and we look forward to life post C19!!!
