It's been five months. Five months since COVID-19 started to change how all of us live. It literally stopped the daily schedule of wake up, go to work, go home, eat dinner, rinse and repeat. The new pandemic has allowed all of us to be home with nowhere to go for months.
Nowhere to go includes the nail salon, hair salon, massage therapist, spa, etc. At one point we couldn't even go out to a park or take a walk through the neighborhood. Since summer 2020 has officially been canceled, everyone is home so its tough to get ME time. Is it even possible to get ME time in the age of COVID? The answer is HELL YEAH!
Now that you know you can still make time for you the question is HOW with a house full of people at all times. No matter the square footage there's never enough space when everyone has nowhere to go. The key is the make the most out of the space you have and find small ways to remind yourself how awesome you are.
Take an extra long bath in the middle of the afternoon just because. If you need to lock the door to ensure you get the privacy you deserve, do it. Everyone you take care of was functioning several hours a day without you before COVID and they can certainly continue to do so now.
Go for a walk or work outside in your garden. Sit in a quiet place and read a book or watch a movie. Write a movie. Write a book. Start a business. Meditate. Stand in front of the mirror to tell yourself how much you love you. Take a selfie or do a fun dance. The point is DO YOU.
Do whatever is required to not lose yourself and that beauty and sparkle that's you. Do a little bit of that each and every day and you'll see the difference. Keep going. At least once the COVID lock down is over you'll come out of it loving yourself more than you ever did before. This sets the example for others to follow.
