As many of us once again go back into lockdown, it is time for us to be stronger than ever before. Many of you are tried, frustrated and lonely but given the recent announcement of the vaccine there is finally light at the end of the tunnel. And so the first thing which we have to accept is that his sucks, nobody is happy but we haven’t really got much of a choice. Now the brilliant lifestyle coach Adam Seger was on his Instagram channel last week talking about learning lessons from the first lockdown and that is exactly what we all have to do with regards to this current situation, and here is how to make it through.
Be As Social As Can Be
When we talk about being social we are not talking abut social media, that is not a place which is going to do anyone any favors right now. And so what we actually mean by this is that you should do all that you can to make sure that you stay in touch with your family and your friends on a regular basis. It may not be the same but the likes of Zoom and Skype give us the chance to see each other when we talk which does mean something.
Learning Something New
It is absolutely critical during this time that you have an eye on making sure that you learn something new. This could be a language, how to play a game, a new skill or hobby, whatever you feel that you can get passionate about. This will not only help you to spend the time that you have on your hands, but it will also ensure that you are in the perfect position to keep focused and to keep your mind off the problems which we are all going through.
Making The Most
If you try to forget about the fact that this has been going on forever, and think about what things will be like when they reopen again, you’ll see just how good an opportunity this is. Let’s say that you want to start a business once all of this blows over, there is nothing to stop you from laying the foundations now so that you can come out in style. The same thing goes for travel plans, make them now and you’ll be all set once things reopen.
It doesn’t matter if you get out into the garden or to the local park, you have to feel the sun on your skin and the wind on your face. This is essential to help you to fight the feelings of being enclosed and it will really do wonders for your mental health. Try and head out at least once per day in order to ease your mind and breathe in some fresh air.
We will get through this and before long everything will be back to normal, just like we all remember.
