How to find normal in disruption (Resources Inside)

Hey, how are you holding up? COVID-19 has really disrupted normal and in some ways it’s been good. A lot of people have been able to spend more time with family, rest and work on some of the things they love. However, being in the house all day with limited human interaction has had an impact on many of us. Working from home works for some people but others don’t have an environment that facilitates WFH.

In the midst of disruption, you can still find a calm. It won’t be easy and it won’t be straightforward but it doesn’t mean it can’t be obtained. Here are a few things that can help in this time.

Routine matters, create a routine that will help facilitate your adjustment to a new normal. What can you do in this time that will assist in maintaining a healthy mind? Build a simple routine and be intentional with your time. Schedule things in the calendar and add reminders. Go for a walk before you start your day or workout. Have breaks in the day to do something creative, a hobby that sparks joy.

Schedule time to connect with loved ones. Keep your day simple, yes it seems you have a lot more time but that doesn’t mean you have to put pressure on yourself, to do anything in this time.

Clear space, clear mind. If you don’t have a workspace, try and create one. Make sure your workspace is clear!
