Day 11 of the Lockdown…

What I feared most was the disruption of my own routine and morning rituals. Since I’ve worked from home for so long already, I knew that keeping my own schedule and staying sane with others around would be the most difficult.

We mastered the daily routine that allows each of us to work on our individual projects, we have family time and I still have me-time.

Not isolation.
Not being at home.
Not working from home.
But suddenly all of the others being with me all the time.
I’m an empath, I feel the energy of others so deeply.
I’m introverted. I’m a loner who thrives on having time for myself.
I need to be alone to restore my energy.

Without it, I would go crazy.
Without having time for myself this would be impossible.
I feel proud. Of me and my family.
They fit into my schedule nicely 😉

We don’t know when this will end.
We don’t know how the world will look after this.
We don’t know how our lives will be.

But one thing I do know.

I know there is a lot of fear and anxiety in the world right now. I know the uncertainty is scary.
Without taking care of myself right now, I would come out of this even more scared.
Without my self-care habits, I would crumble under pressure.
Without focusing on loving myself during the lockdown, I would get lost in the worry and anxiety.

We can’t pour from an empty cup and these days our cups are leaking from every pore.

Taking care of yourself is essential, the most important thing you need to do right now to stay sane.

How do you take care of yourself?
How do you love yourself despite the world situation, even in these scary times?
