How Are You Coping During These Strange Times?
These are strange times we are living in at the moment. One of the aptest quotes of this time is said by Albus Dumbledore in "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" and it is "Happiness can be found in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light"
I feel that this is a strange time thanks to what is going on right now. Rules are in place all over the world keeping the population from going out from our homes except for necessary reasons or work and I mentioned this in my previous post Keeping Your Distance to Stay Safe.
Many people are beginning to go stir crazy because they are unable to do whatever they like whenever they like.
Most people realise that doing so saves the lives of many rather than the few. And we should be grateful for those too.
We have been in #Lockdown or some sort of #Quarentine while the medical professionals and key workers in all sectors of business who go out to work. whom everyone should be grateful for their dedication and vocational take of their work.
What are you doing to keep yourself mentally well during this difficult time?
Or a mixture of all that?
In my case, I have a family who I live with and can interact with physically. But many people are on their own. And will be struggling mentally and physically in these difficult times.
Being a mum I am after a long struggle of my own with the situation and being as independent as I possibly can while also relying on others because of my disability and health issues.
So I have a routine for myself because I can control my environment and abilities. although this has gone to the wall on many occasions.
I am setting times to do things making it easier for me and using time deadlines for doing things so that I know what I am doing. I am also set time limits for things so that I can do more each day.
What are your choices?
Since writing this on my old provider things are still not back to what we used to class as normal. And I very much doubt that they will ever be the same as it was. Everyone has got their own opinion of what is going on right now. However, we have our own family members to think of first rather than of your own self.
Love and Peace
