Uncertainty during the pandemic
Whether you are obsessing about it, or casually aware of it, there is uncertainty during the pandemic. There’s uncertainty about our health, and our everyday lives. Uncertainty about lockdowns, what’s allowed, seeing our loved ones, (or not). Everything.
We are worried about our work, being furloughed, working remotely, our businesses and organisations closing. Many of us have lost or are about to lose our jobs, many live in fear of redundancy. Yet more people are living through times of terrible financial pressure.
Physical isolation is at its’ peak, and most of us live with stresses and anxieties that we couldn’t have imagined less than a year ago.
And all of this is taking its’ toll.
My coping methods
I’m going to share my thoughts and some ideas of how to get through. Some of these are my own, others I’ll glean from those I trust. I’m going to share the things I’m trying to do, to manage the best I can, in my new normal.
It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, and what’s helpful for me, might not work for you. However, if just one person reads this and takes a little comfort, that’s wonderful. It’s my tiny kick back at the changed way that we live, to stop this virus from spreading.
Oh, and I am going to be honest. If that half hour walk each day is a struggle because it’s cold and wet outside, I’ll tell you. If my world is genuinely a bleaker place by going cold turkey on Facebook I’ll tell you too!
Get in touch with me if you would like to discuss how you feel.
