My family and I have been in, what is referred to as, isolation, lock-down, and have been practicing social distancing, along with all the other requirements to get through these times. I like to refer to it as, we are just staying at home!
I find, if we start giving our time “titles” then the issue that is controlling the World right now, is actually winning even more. I refuse to let this “invisible pain in the World’s backside” win!
We all know, what we all need to do, to take back our control of our lives! There is no reason, why we have to constantly remind ourselves of “what” it is called. I find to maintain a healthy mindset, we need to try and maintain normalcy.
Instead of saying, we are living in isolation, just say, we are still living at home.
Instead of saying, we are social distancing, just say, we are enjoying being in our own bubble (space), we are trying something new!
Instead of saying, we are on lock-down, just say, we are diving into Spring cleaning, and spending quality time with our family, friends, pets, or even spending time planning our dreams; we love our home/space so much, we just don’t want to leave.
To gain some sense of control back, since living this way was out of our control, we can easily say, “we are trying something new. We are doing a project and making use of our time. We are gaining more gratitude for each other, by spending more time with each other.”
There are so many ways of looking at our situation we are all living in at the moment, but by throwing a little positive mindset into the mix of things, we are having more fun, we are feeling less anxiety, and we are actually relaxing a bit more.
The best part of it all, is this invisible pain the backside I referred to earlier, is not winning so much, and I quite like that idea.
Keep Spreading The Love & Stay Home!
