The interesting thing that I have noticed since these never ending states of Lockdown is that we are all trying to be productive and we tell friends and family that we don’t have much news – this is okay to not have news but it is just important that you stay connected and share your worries or concerns. We are all in this together as they say but are we being there for each other when it comes to the struggles and the areas that we really want to work on or are we on auto pilot?
All we have to do is:
- stay safe
- stay home
- wash our hands
What I have noticed is that most people try to keep busy and go through the motions of every day and this is all we really can do for now or is it? It is important for survival to keep your mind and body occupied but it is also important to slow down, evaluate things and allow yourself to just be.
Don’t put so much pressure on yourself
So we don’t need to put undue pressure on ourselves at this time, we need to welcome in kindness and compassion if we want to keep moving forward with a lightness in our hearts. If you want to be in your pyjamas for the day and take it easy – do it – with no guilt. Guilt free living can be our new way of life, if we choose it to be. Guilt is just a misplaced emotion that means to cause harm to someone else – so if you decide on a netflix and pj day is needed you are not harming a soul and you are going gently with yourself and practicing this slowing down is good for recuperating and being at one with yourself and listening to your mind and body.
This is a time for peace and for some it is for taking stock of all the gifts that we have, the family that we love and the skills and aptitudes that we have.
This Free workbook has really helped my clients in mapping out the areas that need your attention for whenever we pull out of this strange time – which may not be for a while yet.
No need to learn japanese or the violin and it isnt a time to do a huge audit on how you are spending your time.
This doesn’t mean that the current time has to be used to learn the violin, learn japanese or become a super hero at something new – although you are perfectly entitled to do all of those things of course. I am just advising that you don’t have to put massive pressure on yourself to do the things that you haven’t done in your life so far. Why not spend the time focusing on what you already know and build on that to make your life better?
Tap into the resources that are already there within you!
This can be a time to evaluate and take a look and the life you might want to create for yourself.
Now we are staying home, we are connecting more with people on a deeper level, (or at least trying to) having more meaningful conversations and we really have gone back to basics where going to the supermarket is an outing and can sometimes even be fun!– We have connected again and are finding peace and this can benefit humanity in the long run so much so that if the pace picks up again in life – will we have learnt more about ourselves since covid and we can be proud to say that we took stock and starting living the life that we actually want.
The purpose of this Workbook is to look at all the areas of your life and write down what you want in each of the areas.
The goal areas in the workbook are:
Health, Family, career, finance, leisure & personal growth . The first sheet is to write in your headings and the second page is a detailed account of that goal. For instance:
Finance – save 200 euros a month, cut out unnecessary entertainment or scrolling netflix, spotify or similar that has some sacrifice that you reward yourself with after.
Health – stop smoking, (Sign up for your free Quit kit) (HSE)- eat more healthily, join a gym, walk to work, join a dance class, get out for more walks.
Personal growth – finish that course, read that book, learn something new, set boundaries – see video here for Creating boundaries
