With so many things going on these days, it’s so easy to get overwhelmed and paralyzed with fear of the unknown. But remember, to get overwhelmed is a choice; to be paralyzed is also a choice. I’m not shaming anyone; heck, I was one of those people... several times 😅😂.
But as the days turned into weeks, I slowly got back on my feet - sometimes, literally - because life goes on. Tough times will always be around the corner to teach us a thing or two about ourselves.
Here are 4 things I learned from Covid-19:
Stay in touch with friends and family I always thought I was an introvert, and I still think I am. However, being restricted and not able to physically see my friends has been a bit of a struggle. #Zoom is great and all but it’s not the same. It makes me appreciative of and grateful for the friends that I have all these years.
Cooking can be easy enough Home cooked meals can be nice and simple, and yet delicious. I still have a long way to go before my food becomes presentable but meal prepping isn’t as dreadful as I used to think they’d be. Washing dishes, however, can go 🤬 itself.
Self care is beneficial With times the way they are, it’s so easy to just neglect oneself. Like it or not, we need time for ourselves too. Not only to process what we’ve faced, but also so that we don’t blow up 🤯🤬 when we don’t intend to. Even just taking time for yourself once a day will do you a world of good. #speakingfromexperience
Time-blocking is useful While it may seem boring, having some sort of routine is what kept the productivity up. Finding out you don’t have to be at the office at a set time, or you don’t have to leave the house that day also means your productivity may go down. You’d be surprised how much you can achieve just by blocking out time to do certain things the next day.
So let me ask you, what have you learned during these hard times?
