HOW TO SURVIVE A PANDEMIC.
This isn't exactly a survival guide. But more of a way to release some thoughts. How has it nearly been a year of living like this? I forget what real life used to be like. It's safe to say it's pretty normal to feel nothing by this point. There is no excitement no motivation, nothing. Just getting by every day. I have totally neglected instagram, my blog and facebook. Because there is never a reason to do my hair and make up or get new outfits that arent joggies and jumpers.
Today was probably one of the more down days ive had. I didn't want to get out of bed. I didn't want to wash my hair. I just didn't want to do anything apart from turn over and for the day to be over. But I got up, washed my hair, put make up on, and styled up some pieces I've bought over the months. And I'll tell you, it really made me feel like ME again! I have missed feeling excited over getting pictures and having fun with my mum doing it and the excitement of uploading them. It's something I've really not felt in over a year.
I have been trying to focus more on making lists everyday to at least achieve 2 things even if its small - cleaning my car, washing my hair, tidying my stock room, sorting out my clothes. It really has been getting me through the days. I am lucky enough to still have work to do through all this or I really would have lost ALL motivation completely.
I would love to say I've done so much exercise but its the last thing on your mind when you just feel bleugh. I have had the odd walk, but with ice and snow it really doesn't appeal to me to go outside in it, i want to be in my bed and cosy where i feel safe.
This is just a post to say it's ok to feel nothing. It's ok to not do anything for weeks on end, because we are all going through this. We will really struggle when things start to ease off and we need to return to work life. We need to be kinder to ourselves. We are going through something no one has ever had to go through. So check in on people as much as you can, as we are all struggling some more than others.
