Preparing for the new normal
I can’t quite believe that we are approaching a year of quarantine, lockdowns, social distancing, and mask wearing. It still feels a little surreal, who would have thought that a virus could take over the world in our day and age?!
The pandemic has brought uncertainty and unprecedented changes to our daily lives; both elements being stress inducing environments to experience, for all ages.
It’s no surprise that some people have been feeling depressed in Lockdown #3! On top of that, winter has kept us in doors for a few months as well, decreasing the amount of outdoor exercise that we were eager to do in Lockdown #1. Comfort eating may have ramped up a little more for some people. The effects of feeling isolated for those of us on their own, could be taking its tole.
As a result of this year long change, low moods are something that may have developed for you. I want to reassure you; you are not alone in that. It was inevitable, after all a Pandemic is no party invite, we want to receive in the post!
However, all is not lost! Spring is starting to spread its joy, snow drops, and crocuses are blossoming; nature is magical! With the mornings and evenings becoming lighter, the notion to get outside seems more inviting every day.
How can we get ready?
With the fresh start approaching we must begin to think ahead. We need to find ways to get started on the momentum behind lifting our mood, aid depression and lose those extra pounds we have put on!
I want to help you find ways to move from the limbo state between lockdown to the inevitable return to new the normal and freedom! I’ve been thinking of ways to lift us, to keep us going through the next phase.
I would be delighted if you would pick at least 3 recommendations for the list below and let me know how you get on.
