I have never expected to experience something similar to what is happening right now. I have always been afraid of war, this is my greatest fear and I often wondered what would happen if. Not once I thought that I could live in an epidemic or pandemic. All similar events have always seemed so far in history, and in the meantime, somehow I’m now part of the history that others will learn in the future.
In times like this, some of us have the opportunity to stop and re-evaluate our lives, while others work days and nights to ensure the safety and well-being of society. At such moments, the average person begins to think about the meaning of their existence, how he uses his life. When checking social media, I can see how many people enjoy their free time at home, which they now have to fill. They work out, learn a new language, read, bake, develop new skills while trying to persuade others to work on themselves. And it’s great. However, we often forget to assure others that there is nothing wrong with feeling stressed out and not wanting to do anything. So many people around us are struggling with various mental illnesses that we have no idea about. Stress in this situation is inevitable, and there are thousands of ways to deal with it.
There are hundreds of answers on how to deal with all this. None of us should forget, however, that there is nothing wrong with feelings of anger, sadness or resentment. We should not feel bad about the fact that our favourite influencer at home throughout the day, managed to bake a cake, work out, record three vlogs, clean up, read half of our favorite book, and still found time to watch the new episode of the series. It is great, that someone has got so much energy and motivation! However no one can feel worse just because they decided to spend this day in bed, venting their emotions. In times like this, let’s support ourselves as much as we can, let’s not get crazy, talk to loved ones, because that’s the only way we can help each other.
Personally, this is my tenth (?) day of quarantine. I am alone in my room, unable to leave the house even with my dog, after returning from the UK. I had to face the decision about whether to return to my family at this time or live my normal life. Ultimately, for the peace of my loved ones and with a desire to take advantage of this free time from work and study, I decided to fly to Poland for around a month. How do I manage with quarantine? Well, there are better and worse days. I lack motivation for anything because the less I have to do, the lazier I become. Sometimes I regret the hours spent in bed, but this is how I deal with stress. Like everyone, I can’t wait for it to return to normal.
Hey, but at least I found the motivation to come back here. I don’t count on my fingers how many times I took breaks, but I guees, each of us needs them.
I’ve always been opposed to selfies on the blog, but I haven’t had the opportunity to go for a walk to do a photo session. Taking advantage of free time and a new palette, I decided to do makeup, the effect of which you can see in the pictures. And soon you will get a review of this palette.
And how are you dealing with this unusual situation?
