Pandemic living has heaped the stress upon us emotionally, physically, financially and spiritually. The normal boundaries of time that separate work and home, family time and friend time and ANY alone time have all blurred together. There seems to be no space to have time to think about nothing or simply do nothing!
Take small increments of time all day long to reset
If you have any alone time use it to come back to the breath, close your eyes and give yourself 60 seconds of being present in the moment with your breath and body. This will bring you an immediate sense of peace even if its only for 1 minute!
Use time in the car if and when you are alone as a time to check in with yourself emotionally
Ask yourself out loud how you are doing? Say your feelings outloud and offer understanding, compassion and encouragement to yourself. "You can do this, one step at a time, I am here for you. I understand why you feel overwhelmed."
This simple daily check in is like updating your phone. Any kinks, glitches and stressors will build up without updating your settings regularly. Take a minute daily to give yourself a quick therapy session.
YOU ARE WORTH IT!
