I heard if you say coronavirus out loud snatchers show up and infect you. Here's to beating you-know-who (you-know-what?). Hopefully in 16 years we don't have to destroy horcruxes and do it all over again. Now turn on your @freeform Harry Potter marathon and get the freak inside ya muggle.. . . . . . . . #harrypotter #covid #coronavirus #socialdistancing #stayinside #lilyandjamespotter #moviemarathon #covid_19
While we're all hunkering down and practicing social distancing--I keep feeling pressed to talk about maintaining our mental health in all of this. We all claim to be introverts and that this is what we've all been waiting for but in reality, we are social beings. We crave connection and freedom and safety. And right now, our health safety is being compromised and to protect that we are sacrificing our connections and freedoms. The freedom to do what we want when we want. The connection with those we enjoy in social gatherings. It's a big deal. And we are likely to suffer mentally from the lack of it. So let's find ways to fill these voids as much as we can. Start with making sure that even though you are at home, you're getting up and dressed for the day - it's a GAME CHANGER on mental health. Take the shower. Put on some perfume. Wear the makeup. Even just for you) (ESPECIALLY just for you). It makes a difference. Second, find some way to move your body. Go to your backyard or balcony or a walk to a nearby park. Do some yoga, chase your kids, get in a body weight workout. Next, try to keep a routine of some sort. Still make dinner on time, eat a well rounded meal, have some protein. Don't snack all day. Keep to your cleaning schedule or implement one- don't let clutter build up around you. Depression THRIVES in clutter. Don't let it win, if you're already in it, make it a point to clear a space every day and don't let it refill. Next, contact someone and check in. Do it in IG, do it via text, write them a letter. FaceTime grandma! Create that connection and build it stronger. And finally, do something for you EVERY DAY. It can be reading a book, doing a face mask, paint your nails, play a video game for an hour or two, bake something new. Just do something for you. Something every day. SCHEDULE IT so it isn't missed. It is imperative! This is not going to be easy! Let's do it together and find ways to get through and not only survive, but maybe even thrive.
I am so grateful for international women's day. For a chance to tell the women around me I love them, I am grateful for them, and I am so desperately in need of them. The amazing thing about what women can do when they come to the same side is INCREDIBLE. I am so grateful for the strides we have made but we have so much to do! May this be the season that we find the common ground and make monumental strides again. Our daughters deserve it, our future deserves it, WE DESERVE IT. HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY! . . . . . . . . . . #ifeellikeawoman #womensday #internationalwomensday #womenempowerment #womensupportingwomen
