Hope you are holding up well on day 10 of #LockdownIndia !
Weekend is here--although every day now resembles the other. There's no concept of "weekday" anymore. Those of you who are working from hope--I hope you get a respite from the usual work pressure and added stress of work-from-home.
I had a fabulous home workout today. I think it is possible to have a proper workout at home, and be fit even though we don't have access to the gym.
I think it is very important to celebrate our smallest successes. Be it a simple task like sweeping and mopping the house, or resisting the temptation to take an afternoon snooze or cleaning up your bathroom really well. We need to remember to applaud ourselves for even the smallest tasks we managed to achieve, simply because these are very stressful times. Our idea of 'normal' has been completely distorted, and we're bombarded with news of deaths and suffering.
I find that journalling helps me. I have been writing in journals ever since I was a child. I write when i am sad, when I am happy, worried, excited, eager, tired, confused. Writing has been my saviour for ages.
Have you ever maintained a journal? If so did you give up because you were bored of the monotony?
