After itching to get back out there so long how do you re-enter society after months of isolation? As the long weekend is upon us some will run at the opportunity, some will ease back into it, and others may need a leg up to get off the couch! Working from home, home schooling and reduced socialisation has been the reality for many due to the pandemic. I find myself forgetting to plan outings as our restrictions start to lift in Australia. Crazy huh after itching to get back out there so long and connect!
Having been so busy as a counsellor and caseworker during the pandemic it’s caused me to get back to basics. I’m so grateful to have a job. But doing the little things like food prep, growing veggies and herbs , drinking enough water, going for a walk in the winter sun, doing a little bit of cleaning each day, ringing a friend. That’s the stuff that keeps the wheels turning. All these little choices help me keep aligned to my values. The values of health, wellbeing, friendship, etc.
Some of those little things I’ve let slip during the period of isolation. Not vacuuming enough (really missing the office cleaner), skipping daily walks, eating too many carbs. I’m only human! So this week I started a gut reset, have been eating mainly vegetables and lost a few much needed kilos. It has been a good kick start to help me re-enter society coming into a long weekend. It feels good to be in alignment again, I’ve got some energy back, it has cleared my head. Now I’m ready to face the world again. This time in person! After all it's only by connecting with others that we share love.
What little steps are you taking to get back out into the community this long weekend? Are your choices aligning with your values and the person you want to be? You were born to connect, express and give love. If you feel you want a little support to get back out there and connect...I’d love to connect with you. For those living with a disability community access is possible. There are creative ways to connect.
