It’s no secret that this pandemic has been really tough on us all. We’ve had to adjust to the new normal in so many ways, and it can be incredibly overwhelming and stressful. From working from home while helping children with their schoolwork to maintaining social relationships remotely, the demands of everyday life have become even more difficult.
A few things that have worked for me are taking short breaks throughout my day to take a quick walk or grab a snack and tea. I also like to listen to calming music in the background as I work; it helps keep any worries at bay for a moment. Setting aside some designated time each day for meditation or yoga is another great strategy for dealing with stress levels. And if you’re feeling overwhelmed, don’t hesitate to reach out to friends or family who care about how you’re doing.
Above all, don’t forget that just by getting through the day you are making progress - small steps add up over time and we will eventually reach a better place!
