I can see clearly now the rain has gone!
Wish I could say this is true, but I have been struggling to get back into the real world!
For the past 12 days I have been in my house and not doing much at all, first there was the forced lockdown for Covid and then the rain set in and then somehow I caught a stomach bug where the toilet became my best friend and chocolate easter eggs became my enemy!
Yep, life has been a struggle for the past few weeks. I have kept up the "I am fine" on my good old social media. Keeping busy with my admin work, but I have done no exercise, no socialising and at the moment I am struggling with the lazy side of me who just wants to sit at home and do nothing!
Doing nothing is good for the soul, it is a re-boot that we all need to do occasionally. But we also have to be mindful of the signs of when it has gone on too long and say "enough is enough!"
And that is where I am at the moment, it is time for me to get out from behind the keyboard, to socialise, to network and to get my energy levels back up!
I am a people person, I get my energy from other people. It is what brings me joy and helps me to get up everyday and do what I do!
At our last "Red to Zen" workshop we talked about how to be mindful of your thoughts and feelings to help you notice the signs of when you need to go back to those mindfulness tools that you need to support your mental wellbeing.
Our mental health is just as important as our physical wellbeing, and having a mindfulness tool that is your "go to" when things go to crap, is really important!
And so now I am doing what I mentor to my clients, I am writing daily into my gratitude diary, I am grounding myself with walks in nature, organising coffee catchup with friends and reminding myself that it is ok to have a little pity party, but it is time now to get out of the rain and into the sunshine!
