The lockdown rollercoaster...
I don’t know about you, but my days are full of ups and downs right now.
Sometimes I feel happy: I enjoy what I’m doing, and appreciate the moment.
Other times I feel down - almost hopeless!
I've been having a few issues in my personal life recently. Nothing major, but enough to cause some stress and upset.
I haven’t written a blog post for a while... I’ve wanted to, but have had a busy few weeks.
And this reminds me of a concept I came across recently with a client.
Since lockdown, I’ve been feeling like the days are whizzing by... and I’ve heard this from others too.
Even though we’re going out less and seeing people less, time seems to be speeding up!
How is that?!
A message of encouragement...
Today I want to remind you of something very important.
Most of us - if not all of us - are going through strange times right now. Fear, uncertainty, and our daily lives flipped upside down.
The leader of a Facebook group I'm in asked recently:
“What are you looking forward to next week?”
We all know that things are weird right now... I don’t need to tell you that!
It’s easy to feel down with everything that’s going on around us – especially when most of us can’t see friends and family in person.
So I thought I’d share tools I’ve been using to pick myself up, while my usual methods of cheering myself up are off limits.
This is a strange time right now... one of those possibly once-in-a-lifetime moments where we’re all going through the same thing.
So, an important message: hang in there, and don’t lose faith.
Today I want to talk about adjusting to our new reality.
There’s a lot of fear and panic in the world right now, which I understand.
I’m a pretty optimistic person, but even I’ve found myself dwelling on the future and feeling confused and down about things from time to time.
So I wanted to share a guide to surviving tough times... for when things feel confusing and out of our control, or when we’re not sure what will happen next.
