Times of thought during a pandemic

Thoughts of WFH

  • My work alarm set as usual.
  • Showering and getting dressed.
  • Having breakfast and a cup of tea (as that’s how I’d start any day).
  • Sitting at a desk or dedicated place for work times (I used to sit at the dining table).
  • I’d cook up something nice for lunch (break from the screen too).
  • Sit on the sofa or balcony to eat lunch to break off (my desk is out of sight). My place is an open plan kitchen, dining and living room.

Thoughts about anxiety

Thoughts of positivity

  • I’m happy to see people turning to online exercise regimes (Me? Nah.)
  • I’m happy to see neighbours helping each other out
  • I’m happy to see supermarkets are considering the elderly
  • I’m happy to see people are being productive with their time (there is no pressure that you should be learning everything new under the sun)
  • I’m happy to see games played between people online
  • I’m happy to take a moment at home and to try be still (I used to hate the idea of staying in at home btw)
  • I’m happy to see people using their businesses for other means; like filming space for online videos and for others to sell their produce.
  • I’m happy to see people are checking in on each other and offering out their hand to help — this should ideally already be a thing dear humans. Also the hand-washing thing.
