And so we are back into lockdown again here in the UK. I am feeling a bit weary and tired off it all, mostly because I am missing my family back home in Norway so much. It is the longest I, and my family have gone without being able to see our dearest over there. 1 year 2 months 2 weeks and 4 days, but who’s counting…?!? The way it looks right now the much needed and desperately wanted Christmas back home is also fading into a distant dream.
So maybe I am writing this mostly to myself, but remember to be kind and take care of yourself. Someone wise once said that ‘Self-care is giving the world the best of you, instead of what’s left of you.‘ So I will ponder how to make sure that I am still able to give my best by looking after my mental and physical health this lockdown. I will be setting myself goals (keeping the new restrictions in mind) that will help me stay as sane as possible in these areas in the coming days.
And so lastly, a recommendation for anyone who are into podcasts. BBC radio 5’s ‘How do you cope’ with Elis James and John Robins is a definitely worth a listen.
