Self-solation, social distancing, losing independence and freedom can be hard. Living an all very negative way of life, which creates anxiety and stress.
With isolation and anti-social behaviour installed upon us, we need to surround ourselves with positive people. Family and close friends will be a pillar of strength for the next few months. But also will be challenging.
We also need to adapt and change, seeking inspiration, not gossip and drama, especially for the vulnerable people around us.
We need to express gratitude and ensure our behaviour towards others is humane. We will encounter negativity within ourselves and from loved ones, rise to the occasion and be wise and cheerful.
Staying positive it seems is easier said than done. But let’s take stock here.
We are now living differently. Socially we are inactive by person but have a substitute for social media. Kids are at home with their families; parents are home taking care of their children. Fast food replaced by home cooking, hectic schedules replaced by naps. The air seems cleaner, the world quieter. People are conscious about hygiene and health again. We all now appreciate our amazing NHS. Teachers- we now appreciate what you do!!!! Shop workers are now our Super Hero’s. Bus drivers, train drivers, lorry drivers you are the best. Local communities are working together to help each other. Money doesn’t seem to make the world go round anymore. And we now have time, finally, to stop and smell the roses. It seems like; this COVID-19 is a reset button for humanity!!!
This is positive old fashion value. Forgotten by many.
Stay fit, stimulate the mind, and find spirituality with “Me time” to develop.
