The art of sanity in a Pandemic Lockdown

Sunday 30 August 2020

No, it's not easy. Most of the challenges come down to our expectations - are they valid based on the assumptions you have made about your future?

Those assumptions are based on the information you have available to you. We gather information, make an assessment of meaning, which leads us to make assumptions for an expected future. Right now, One day at a time might be more than enough. Heck, getting through the next hour might be enough.

It's been a very busy few months for me on a whole range of fronts. So getting through an hour or day suits even if I feel sometimes I wish I could (or should?) be doing more. The key though is to remember to reward yourself when you do get through that week, or hour or day - 'well done you, made it this far'. And keep breathing. The futurist in me is always looking further ahead. The pragmatist in me says 'let's just deal with current reality before worrying about the next one'. Talk to people, walk, breathe and take it one step at a time. Whatever becomes normal will be revealed soon enough. Your expectations will based on that, not on the assumption you have made.
