How are you doing my friend? I’m heading into week four of physical distancing and feeling better than last week. Although our new normal is wearing on me, work is keeping me busy, which I think is helpful. And I am so grateful for it.
At this point I’m not sure what’s more taxing, staying at home or venturing out for necessities. The entire process of leaving home is so stressful and such a painful reminder of just how much our lives have changed, that I’m not sure I’m keen to do it again anytime soon. If like me you’re happy to stay inside, I offer this weeks Tuesday 10 as a small distraction 🙂
If you’re like me the days have started to blend together and the novelty of physical distancing and working to flatten the curve has worn off. The return of winter here in Calgary isn’t helping either.
I’ve learned that in times of disruption, if I can stick to a routine, I’m more likely to keep anxiety at bay and maintain a positive mindset. So with routine in mind, here’s this week’s Tuesday 10.
Well we made it through the first week of social distancing, sheltering in place and trying to flatten that darn curve. How’d you fare?
I did pretty well. Only because I’ve had practice feeling isolated and uncertain. About 7 months ago, I left my stable job as a community pharmacist (the irony is not lost on me) to pursue interior design full time. I can only describe the tail end of 2019 as the most afraid, insecure, uncertain and isolated I have ever felt in my life. Despite having taken a leave of absence earlier that year, nothing could have prepared me for the disruption of becoming a full time entrepreneur. In particular the lack of regular social interactions. The silly conversations that used to annoy me with my twenty-something assistants, I found myself desperately missing.
