Surviving isolation 💗 So how’s everyone doing? Are you stir crazy yet, or getting into the swing of your new routine? I’ve been housebound since first getting out of hospital in December ‘18. I haven’t driven a car, haven’t left the house on my own, and the only times I have been out was for various hospital appointments. It takes a bit of getting used to, especially as I’m not exactly mobile, but I find if I structure my day it feels like normal time is passing 💗
- get up at the same time you would if you were working or going to college or school - have your breakfast, lunch and dinner at your normal times, ensuring your body doesn’t start reacting to the shock of a different time scale
- avoid snacking, seriously, wear proper clothes because leggings and pyjama bottoms will lull you into a false sense of security - avoid spending too much time in front of the TV, especially the news (I only watch the daily briefing from DS as everything else becomes overwhelming)
- phone your friends, and your mother if you’re lucky enough to have her around
- introverts? It’s ok if you just message people
- relax, you don’t need to be worrying about anything at the minute, so try your absolute best to get a good sleep and to rest your brain for a couple of hours every day, self care is just as important as caring for everyone else.
I hope you’re all staying safe and surviving this, our strangest of times. Me? It’s just another day with my girls 💗
