The New Normal
It has been an incredibly long time since I touched this blog and things have certainly changed. The world has been in the midst of the coronavirus crisis (COVID-19) and things are very different. We have new terms, such as social distancing, flatten the curve and the new normal.
It certainly has been a different and difficult time for many. People panic buying toilet paper and food, people losing their jobs and livelihood and usual past times relegated to one side as it isn’t safe. Public transport has been cut to a bare minimum, stores are mostly closed and a lot of people are working from home.
For me, the changes have been quite a mixed bag. We’re doing a week at home, week at the office roster at work to minimise the number of people in the building and spreading ourselves out around the building. I initially liked the working from home, waking up at 7.30am to start work at 8am, getting breakfast and lunch made for me while watching TV during my lunch break. Also I loved working in my PJs and glasses, no need for me to get dressed and be work wear appropriate. The first swing was good, then the 2nd swing I started to get bad cabin fever and my mental health was slowly slipping. We had been doing the right thing and only going out to the shops for essentials and occasional exercise. The exercise bit got put to the back burner as I was so comfortable at home. The dreaded third quarter had struck. The novelty of doing all that had started to wear off and I was now feeling a bit stuck.
Thankfully my next office swing has came round and I was able to get out and drive to work, restoring some sense of normalcy. I then made the mindful decision to go for a walk after work to try to get rid of the cabin fever and work on my mental health. It definitely has made a difference and I’m beginning to feel like my old self, adjusting to the new normal.
To think that things currently look starkly different to what it was like to the beginning of the year, is something that is quite hard to get my head around sometimes. If someone had told me that this is what the new normal would look like in 2020, I wouldn’t have believed them. It is only until you live the reality that it becomes tangible.
I’ve been trying to get back into writing, it has been quite therapeutic to be penning things down and looking back at it. I’ve got so many new ideas swirling in my brain, but have been quite unmotivated to put them into action and explore, but am hoping that this blog post is the start of something that will spark joy with my creativity again.
