How often do you feel unproductive – like the last 24 hours have passed by and you haven’t done much?
Feeling unproductive can usually come up for two reasons. Either people around you are making you think that you should be doing something different. Or rather, in a typical procrastinating situation, you want to do something but can’t and you don’t know why.
The essence of this is you left feeling disempowered.
There are five steps that I like to narrow this down to that can make you conquer this feeling. These steps come down to refocusing your thoughts and feelings and taking action.
It is loneliness awareness week. With the coronavirus at the forefront of our minds, you might be feeling lonelier than normal. And that won’t just be the case for people living on their own. Loneliness can even sneak up on you when you’re surrounded by others.
During this pandemic, we have all been through peaks and troughs. This doesn’t mean that we are getting used to life in lockdown, but that we are at least over the initial hump and shock of it all.
I have been talking previously about video games and why (like I did) you find it so hard to quit playing.
As I have talked about, I went through the challenge of having to tear myself away from games, so I want to share my five tips on how you can stop yourself.
I hope everyone is healthy and still staying safe while we all tackle coronavirus. If you’re feeling anxious, you’re not alone.
As we all sit at home, baking everything there is to bake, repairing everything that needs to be repaired, and playing every Zoom quiz possible – we are almost two months into social distancing, so it can be anxiety-inducing to not know when things might change.
It’s been a challenging time for the entire world at the moment amidst the Coronavirus pandemic. And it’s going to be pretty normal to feel sad every now and then.
You’re probably wondering ‘why do I feel sad? I get to be home all day and do things in my own time like I always wanted.’ Well, it sounds great on paper but the reality can be very different.
This has been a very emotional time for many of us. With coronavirus taking over our social lives, what we do, where we go and who we see, it’s no surprise that emotions would be running high.
I’ve felt it myself – where I would feel frustrated, anxious or just sad because I couldn’t pop out for a coffee or do my usual routine of going to the gym. Essentially I would feel stuck.
There has been a lot written when it comes to people self-isolating alone, but what I want to bring up this week is those who might have to self-isolate with their partners and even entire families.
I’ve been hearing about a lot of concern and pressure from being in such close proximity to your loved ones. And no matter how many years you have been married or how old your children are, there will still be some kind of strain on relationships.
It is more important than ever that if you feel stuck, yet feeling like you can’t take a moment to yourself, know that they are not alone and you can make the best of this testing situation.
As we all #StayatHome, there is a lot of discussion about how to stay safe with family, support friends and generally try and live as normal a life as possible within the confines of your home.
And it hasn’t been that easy, has it? There is a huge demographic of people, especially in London, that we can forget about. People that live alone.
The words on everyone’s lips at the moment is Coronavirus. And why wouldn’t it be? The entire world is practically on standstill and we have now been asked to stay at home, to save ourselves, save others and save the NHS from the strain that has been put on them already.
