It’s time for us to accept that this pandemic, and social isolation are here to stay, at least for a while. Our reality has changed, possibly for good. We’re in “the new normal,” Are you ready? It may seem scary at first, but we need to adapt to this new world.
People will have to get used to a new reality after coronavirus, with new restrictions set to remain in place for some time. However, it may look like things are going back to normal in some parts of the world. Many businesses are reopening and some people are going back to work. A growing list of business leaders are adding their weight to working from home and more flexible working arrangements, aided by technology and video-conferencing platforms such as Zoom and Google Meet.
But, what about us? Many things have changed:
A sense of restriction: We can’t go back to our routines. Some of us want to take a walk without a constant fear. Others just want to go to their favorite restaurants or travel. Not being able to do any of these things can be really frustrating and it can feel very restricted.
Uncertainty and anxiety: Things are incredibly uncertain right now. The state of the world, the shaky economy, our individual financial situations. And that’s just the start of it. We all have feelings of stress, fear and anxiety.
Isolation: For many people, social distancing has created a feeling of isolation that can be very hard to handle. But for many, there is also feeling of togetherness – we’re all in this together. keep this in mind.
Feeling overwhelmed: It can all be too much. Watching the news about COVID-19 deaths every day can leave that sense of overwhelm. We want to exit, turn away, avoid. If you’re impatient and wanting it all to be over … can you practice patience instead? Let yourself be with the pain and frustration you’re feeling, and then, let it all go.
Wanting to feel something meaningful: In this feeling of instability, we might crave some kind of meaning. Some sense of purpose. But, don’t worry. While quarantined, try to remember that you do have a purpose and it is a great one.
