By this 3rd lockdown, I started to get restless I’ll admit.. I was feeling the strain of being couped up in this little flat.. with little to do, I did feel distressed at times..
So do you want to know how I have 𝑳𝒆𝒂𝒓𝒏𝒆𝒅 to feel good in lockdown?
Lockdown for me has meant not running my business as usual, so I have had to source income in other ways.. in #Lockdown2 I got a job in a health shop and in #Lockdown3 I got a job as a cleaner .. I’m not shy to a bit of hard graft and I’ve never been too fazed as to what the job is, so long as I’m busy at work..
With my group classes closed until further notice, it has given me a whole year to re-evaluate my whole life… seriously … as cheesy as that sounds, I’ve had time to sit back and regain my vision; what I want from life, what makes me tick, what I like, what I don’t like, who I am and what I represent. . .
On my online relaxation meditation & yoga session last night, the gratitude inspiration note was;
“𝑰 𝒂𝒎 𝒈𝒓𝒂𝒕𝒆𝒇𝒖𝒍 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝑰 … (fill the blank)
𝑰𝒇 𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒉𝒂𝒅𝒏’𝒕 𝒉𝒂𝒑𝒑𝒆𝒏𝒆𝒅 𝑰 𝒘𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅𝒏’𝒕 𝒉𝒂𝒗𝒆 …” (fill the blank)
Over the past year living in this flat and spending most of it in lockdown, I have learned how to put myself first again, it’s so easy to teach self love, but after my partner and me broke up last year, it was time to take a spoonful of my own medicine that I was dishing out… Sound familiar?
I dipped into counselling sessions, I invested a lot of my time in relationship coaching and I have fallen in love with the therapy that gardening gives me..
Feeling good, is a choice you always have.
In this current situation, you can either choose to get distressed, overwhelmed and or bored because of lockdown, or you can actively seek out therapeutic activities to do to feel good, the choice is yours, what do you choose?
