Most of us have been in quarantine for long enough to have a warped sense of time passing. Work/Home life seems to meld, days go by and we are under the impression that we should have accomplished more than we have. It’s important to have moments throughout the day to check in with yourself: Acknowledge your needs, give them a voice. Frustrated by the lack of alone time? Or mourning the loss of contact with friends and relatives? Panicking about an uncertain future? Allow yourself to feel those feelings, they are a normal reaction to our unique circumstance. Then, check out: Give yourself permission and make time regularly to physically, emotionally, and mentally recharge. Your body and mind are processing a lot in the background, give yourself a breather during the day, just for you. By making a conscious choice to prioritize yourself, your loved ones benefit too.
