I’ve found in every new challenging situation in life we start to search out little solutions to make things better. We do this organically, not always purposefully, but sometimes when we stop to reflect on what those solutions are we realize how adaptable we are. That maybe we’re not as much of a mess as we tell ourselves. Because we’re not just letting the situation control us, we’re finding ways to make things work for us. Today I'm sharing ten of my most practical tips for life in self-isolation (and beyond!).
There are so many hilarious meme’s right now that speak to the various ways we are all emotionally dealing with this crisis. The extremes range from letting ourselves completely go (chip crumbs in your bed and all) to being annoyingly positive and productive. How do we find the middle ground and feel good now while also planning for the future past all of this?
We are all on a train into a very uncertain time period. Some of us are in the locomotive. We’ve been in on what’s happening early, have been keeping up to speed and have been preparing. Some of us are riding somewhere in the middle, slowly becoming more and more aware of what’s happening around us and how we must adjust our behaviour and routines to this new environment. Others are in the caboose, way behind on what’s happening, confused and maybe in a little bit of denial. Wherever we are, I would argue that being emotionally strong and prepared is half the battle.
