As we enter our third month of Covid Shutdown, I can almost hear the sighs and groans from my lounge chair.
I can understand why so many of you are beginning to feel frustrated, trapped and are having problems with partners and family.
It is not easy living with others 24/7 with no outside company to break the monopoly.
Your resistance becomes low and those little things that you would normally ignore begin to grow into major issues.
It is easy to suggest many little things, but what is difficult is accepting the choices given.
Sometimes it can make us cranky to see what limitations are put on us.
I have had the following suggestions given to me:
So, what can we all do that will make us feel better and more able to cope?
Talk to your therapist via zoom, perhaps do a course on line that you have been meaning to do, but did not have the time
Of course most things cost money and that is sometime short too.
Or you could continue to read this blog and become bored with this too.
So if you are up tight then, BREATHE!
In through the nose for the count of 5, breathing right down into your belly and watch it fill, hold for the count of 6, then out slowly through your mouth for the count of 8.
Repeat this at least 10 times.
When finished notice how much tension has gone from you.
It is simple and easy to do and relieves some of the stress that builds up within us.
Stress can lead to ill health, so whatever you choose not to do, make this a must do, if you have a heart attack through stress no one will be able to visit you in hospital and that will be even worse!!Keep an eye on my website for more blogs and suggestions. www.yvetteallen.com.au
