We took COVID-19 seriously from the beginning. We knew it was going to be bad, to be devastating. But it’s hard to really know what it’s going to look like next week or next month.
I’m on two weeks of social distancing, it is now my new normal. I work from home and the only time we leave the house is for essential grocery trips and to be outside. In the first two weeks, I have tried to harp on the positives. I’m actually exercising more and getting to do some of my hobbies.
I was getting a lot of anxiety before we started social distancing because there was so much unknown. Were our plans going to get cancelled? Did we need to stock up? When would orders be put in place?
In the two weeks of social distancing I felt more secure because I knew the plan. But now I don’t know how long this will last so it’s back to anxiety. How much longer can I do this? Are we prepared?
I also can’t imagine doing this new normal for very long. It feels like every day is the same. We try to switch up the weekends by going on longer hikes, but for the most part every day has the same setting, same atmosphere, and same things to do.
How are you dealing with this new normal?
