Okay, I know I’m not the only introvert who did a little happy dance when social distancing was recommended.
Introverts have been social distancing on our own for a while. Now you’re telling other people to stay away from us? Amazing.
I’ve been taking the virus and CDC recommendations pretty seriously, even though I’m in a low-risk state. I want to help as much as I can to make sure we are flattening the curve and luckily for me, it’s not much to ask of me to social distance.
I do recognize that it’s hard for extroverts, I would imagine working from home would result in a lot of conversations with your dog. But I like having conversations with my dog!
I’m mostly thrown off by the indecisiveness of anything. For me, I feel I’ve given no real direction on how to protect myself and others. I don’t know what to follow through with or I’m not given direction until the last minute. It gives me a lot of anxiety, it’s just not how I function.
I’ve also recently adapted a busier lifestyle that actually calms my anxiety because it’s ingrained in routine and doesn’t allow me a lot of time to overthink.
One on hand, I’m happy to isolate. Work on my crafting projects, catch up on some netflix, clean, do some in-home workouts. On the other hand, I know that I will feel cooped up rather quickly and if I don’t keep busy I will go crazy.
How do you feel about social distancing?
