I am sure I am not the only person feeling isolated in this corona virus induced climate we are in at present. Yes, you are homeschooling and therefore have your child(ren) with you, but it just isn’t the same as smiling at a person in line at the grocery store or hugging a friend. So, how can we beat this feeling of isolation?
Call a friend or relative. Better still, if they can video text do that! You can set up a time to “meet”. You can even get dressed up!
Change up your schedule. What about starting the day with your kid(s) by playing a “happy song” or reading a funny short story, poem, a cartoon or favorite movie?
Do something for someone else. Do you know your neighbors? Acts of kindness go a long way to let your light shine. The amazing unexplained benefit is you will feel better! Can you shovel your neighbor’s drive; bring their garbage cans close to the house on a windy day, put a chocolate bar in their mailbox? The possibilities are endless. 🙂
Do something that brings you joy. It doesn’t have to cost money for you to find joy. You can work on a project, soak in a bubble bath, read a book, paint your nails, or snuggle with your kid(s).
Have a great week! ~Lisa~
