By far the hardest thing to do especially when we are used to moving around our world fast. Practice standing still and using breathing exercises. Start with a 3-minute session and work up from there
Even thou you can’t sit across the table at your favourite coffee shop to catch up with friends and family you can have virtual coffee dates. Video calling is your new avenue to connect with family and friends. Check out house party, zoom, skype and even facetime.
We are all in this together and somedays we lose our cool and become grumpy maybe even angry at everything. That’s ok. Show yourself and those you are sharing self-isolation and quarantine with kindness and compassion.
Validate your feelings. They are all real. Grab a journal or exercise book and daily write down your thoughts and feelings. Let it go. Bring them to light and out from clouding your mind and increasing your brain fog and feelings of overwhelm.
Find a relaxing hobby
I heard recently that we are all going to come out of our quarantine either buffer, more talented or more beautiful. Why can’t you be all of these and have picked up that hobby that you never had the time to learn – hello macrame pot plant holders.
Take daily info detox
Limit how much information you consume. Notice what drags you down and also notice what lifts you up and inspires you. Read. Make books your new best friends.
Daily find gratitude and joy
The quickest way to shift a mood is to step into gratitude and joy. Look out for things to be grateful for in your day, it could even be feeling the warm sun on your cheeks. Daily create pockets of joy.
