So what feels like day 35 of quarantine in my house, I honestly can see an upside to this working from home malarky. I don’t need to put makeup on, I get to wear my comfies all day and I get to spend my breaks from work in a place where I know I can fully relax.
I know this may soon wear thin, but hey, I just am trying to see the bright side. As things are pretty shitty out there at the moment and it doesn’t feel there is an end in sight any time soon, so I’ve got to try and look on the bright side.
For instance, that big part of me that is socially anxious is bloody loving this right now. Honestly, that side of me has never been so freaking relaxed. No awkward social interactions, no anxiety about being in a crowded place and no fear of being hated by people around me. So, part of my mind is in vacation mode right now.
Unfortunately, the other part of my anxiety has jumped on the coronavirus pandemic. Let me give you a few examples of what shit anxiety is putting through my mind;
“Going outside is a bad idea you will get sick and die!”
“Did you wash your hands enough today?”
“You thought you were lonely before, ha, you ain’t seen nothing yet.”
So yeah fun times!
I haven’t posted a tip of the day in ages so let’s post one today.
My tip of the day is –
One day at a time.
It is as simple as that. No one was really prepared for something like this, well. except for maybe survivalists. There is a lot of fear in the world right now and not every day is going to be a great one, no one likes the feeling of being isolated and lonely. Taking care of our mental health is key right now to get through this shitty time. Bad days are inevitable but it is how we get through those days that will help us through it. so remember one day at a time.
