A lot has changed in the last month. Really, a lot has changed just in a matter of days. Things may feel a overwhelming as we’re all dealing with COVID-19 and the impact it’s having on all of our lives.
We’re all being impacted differently. Some of us have lost jobs, some have to work more, some have the luxury to work from home. Others may not have anywhere to go and are homeless and others…..
My job is considered essential so I must report to work 50% of the time, but I’m able to work from home the other 50%, My kids are now home for the rest of the academic school year. School work is emailed to be completed and sent back. More information is being communicated each day. This is literally a day to day process. So a huge adjustment for us all.
Even though a stressful time, we seem to be managing. The kids are getting bored from time to time, but I try to find something for them to do. We have made a schedule and even though trying at times we stick to it.
When we find that things are becoming overwhelming we take breaks. Breaks from social media and news. Sometimes you just need to unplug. Here are some of the things we do:
Read a book
Take a walk outside
These can be done as often as you need.
What I’ve realized in all of this COVID-19 mess is everything around is temporary, The things that our lives revolve around, like work, going to the movies, the gym, shopping, buying toilet paper..lol
This has taught me even more so that it’s my own home and family that keeps me safe.
Until next time..
