The only way to deal with the strange situation that we are in is to take one day at a time – right? Yesterday I was feeling a little strange, stranger than normal is a more honest statement.
This is what I felt and the realisation that I had.
How are you doing?
💚I had a tough morning today – I woke and had that moment where everything is normal before remembering the situation we are in….
🧡I instanly felt low, and bamboozled, a bit unmotivated. I felt like the beautiful sun streaming in was mocking me!
❤I got up and was gentle to myself – ate a good breakfast and did some Do-In and stretching. I swept and cleaned the kitchen floor. Achieving something I can control helped me feel a whole lot better.
💚Later I did an exercise session with my husband and kids – I will try and video one of these sessions once we are in a rhythm – the Joe Wicks PE sessions taking place are a no-go for us – but a little mix of Self-Shiatsu and simple yoga poses is working for us.
🧡Each day I am limiting my contact with technology more and more. I am now off my personal Facebook page. I am hardly reading WhatsApp messages. I leave my phone away from me for hours at a time. I am not going on any news sites except once at lunch and 9nce in the evening. This is the best thing I could have done. I feel calmer, more grounded and quieter about the situation.
❤I realise one of the reasons I felt down was that I want to work. I am enjoying being at home but miss the interaction I get with clients. I love the therapeutic work and how it inspires me to push my self development.
💚So if you are interested in having a video consultation with me – in which I can provide support as I would in the consultation space at the beginning of the treatments – then get in touch. This would be on a donation basis – so please do consider this an option even if you feel it’s not financially possible.
🧡I can offer individual self care Shiatsu and exercises and lifestyle recommendations to support your individual needs.
❤And what about exercise classes online? Would you join in with me – if I did them live? These would offer exercises that support the lungs and chest, the body’s vitality and general energy. Also exercises to calm and ground. Again this would be for a donation.
💚Any other ideas? Anything else you would benefit from?
Take care everyone – be kind to yourself – these are strange times
