What lessons can you learn from the past two months? As our lives have been turned upside down and we have had to change the way we work, live, socialise and go out, what lessons have you learned?
Have you found that working from home is less stressful or that you miss the company of your colleagues? Have you found that home schooling is enjoyable or maybe you have found it to be a nightmare? Have you found that you are lonely and feeling isolated or are you enjoying the peace and quiet?
Every one of us has been affected in some way. The past few months have changed the whole world. There has been a lot of fear, anxiety, the loss of routines and livelihoods and the passing of many lives. It is something that we have never experienced before and the unknown has brought up many challenges.
It has made many of us question the way we are living and ask ourselves if the past was really that great. Are there changes that we have implemented that have benefited our lives? What lessons can you learn?
I know myself, that things have slowed down a lot. I had to close my clinic in late March and have been starting online work. The days feel longer stretching endlessly and I’m enjoying all the space in my life. I’m going on more walks, cooking more exciting meals with my son and doing online classes that I have been wanting to do. I miss my family and my friends but we chat a lot on the phone or on Zoom. We are blessed to have the technology to connect. I miss my clients and Reflexology and some of the old routines. I miss eating out, concerts, the theatre and seeing family and friends in person.
However I have grown during this time. I have realised that the old ways of doing things no longer work for me. I crave creativity and quiet time and time to do things that light me up. I miss my in-person clients and look forward to seeing them again but I have also enjoyed consulting with clients online. I hope to continue both moving forwards. I am enjoying the flexibility of my life, the ability to go for walks when I want to, rest when my body feels like it and the availability of learning so much online. I am finding balance and I know that I will keep doing these things once restrictions are lifted and more freedom of choice returns.
How have you found this period of time? Have you realised that there are certain things that you will continue doing and take forward with you? Have you learnt that there are certain things that you no longer want in your life? Have you realised the importance of connection and hugs and real physical contact?
What lessons can you learn from the past few months?
It’s worth reflecting on this time as hopefully, we will never experience it again. Despite all the chaos, fear and uncertainty, it may bring about positive change. I hope it has do done so for you!
