How To Get Your Life Back Together Post Pandemic
Times have changed. Since March, we have moved from working from home and feeling like prisoners contained at home and to being stuck in limbo. We’re not sure whether to start going out again or to stay in, not to mention the paranoia that comes with being in crowded places.
A lot has changed in the world, our workplaces, schools and some of these changes are here to stay and will inform how our post-pandemic life will be.
Here’s how to get your life back together after pandemic:
Take Time To Mourn Your Loss
Whether you’ve lost a loved one, a job, friendships or have had your hours reduced at work; take time to mourn these losses. Take time to mourn the plans you had for 2020 before creating alternative plans.
Loss during a pandemic hits different especially because you can’t hug friends or family, can’t attend funerals and if you can, most of the funerals are supervised by authorities or the area chief.
Take time to feel your feelings, sit through them, acknowledge them and let them go.
Embrace the new Normal
Social distancing, masks, sanitizers and other COVID-19 restrictions are with us to stay and will continue to be observed until we get a vaccine for the virus. These restrictions are here to protects us from the virus and save lives.
