You are more than your productivity


After my third week of self-isolation/lockdown/quarantine I wanted to share a rather honest blog post for anyone else that might be feeling a little lost at the moment. I took a short "holiday" from social media this week - because I was becoming overwhelmed with how everybody seemed to just snap into this new way of life... adapting to new WFH routines and being able to change everything so quickly, whilst I had just enough motivation to get up and pop the kettle on.

Then I read an Insta-quote saying "you are more than your productivity" - which made me realise it's totally okay if all you have the energy for right now is taking care of yourself, keeping alive and healthy.

None of us are used to this, and as each of our bodies are different, we're all going to adjust differently and at different speeds.

So I stopped checking the news, and tried not to compare myself to what everyone else was doing, and tried to just be.

I've started to feel more positive and optimistic now - looking forward to different ways I can spend my time at home, learning new things, whilst not being overwhelmed by taking on too much.

So if you're struggling too - just slow down, we're in no rush to become quarantine pros. And if all else fails, I hear baking banana bread does wonders for your soul!
