During this period of uncertainty, we have been forced to slow down our lives and isolate ourselves.
We are putting everything (or almost) on pause.
Many of us were used to running, having a thousand thoughts, planning the days in every detail.
Some of us used activities outside the home (e.g., gym, courses) as strategies for dealing with emotional and interpersonal problems.
Now we have had to stop.
Going from a super stimulation to an immediate stop can make us think continuously, intensely, and relentlessly.
The little things we took for granted are no longer possible.
How to react to this moment of extreme change?
Here are some small tips.
Take care of yourself
Wake up, wash and dress; do not stay in pajamas but wear the clothes you would have worn to go out.
It is right for you and respectful of the people around you.
Do not eat the first thing you find in the fridge but cook meals at regular times.
If you went to the gym, respect the appointments you had. You can do it at home; there are a thousand tutorials on the web that you can follow.
Set concrete and small goals
Think about something that you didn’t have time to do before or have been putting off for a long time and start doing it right away.
For example: do you want to learn Italian, read a book, etc.? Read one page a day, learn two new words, small steps every day.
Pay attention to the way you talk to yourself
Pay attention to the phrases that go around your head, and when our dialogue is negative, try to change the way you do it.
For example, start finding three things to be thankful for every day.
Panicking means losing clarity, and this increases the sense of helplessness and uncertainty.
Let me know how it goes, and don’t be afraid to ask questions for any doubts; I’m here.
