I think given this strange time, it's normal to feel a little off-kilter. The first thing to help me stay positive is accepting that I probably won't be able to focus like normal and be less harsh on myself. Letting ideas manifest at a pace which feels manageable and allowing myself time to adapt to this new situation. Since social distancing, I reckon I've spoken more frequently with my friends and group video calls are now the norm.
Is there a book you’ve read, or journal article that you find uplifting?
Am I allowed to say I'm not much of a book reader? Controversial I know. I think what's uplifting is that everyone is in this together and there is a real feeling of community at the moment.
Are you working from home, if so do you have any advice to stay focused?
I'm a daily to-do list advocate, but only write down the ones that are really important. Maybe aim for three key tasks and then anything else is a bonus. I'll spare you the 'get dressed straightaway' one as you might still see me in my pyjamas at half ten. However, I do like to make the bed first thing as I get a mini sense of accomplishment from doing it.
