When this happens tempers fray pretty quickly.
So before you launch into a tirade of snapping and short curt sentences take a big deep, long breath and don’t be quick to judge or criticize
Instead try to be optimistic, kind and helpful
Don’t forget others are experiencing these same emotions so take time to empathize
Whilst in lockdown, quarantine etc
to name a few
Do those chores you have been putting off
Paint the house or flat
Do estate planning and ensure everything is in order
Just take this time to reset yourself

The pandemic has created more stress and anxiety so being aware of this think about the following:
– you will need to change your priorities
– Express your fears- they are real
– empathize with your partner, family and friends
– show gratitude
I could go on but I know you get the idea
Keep thinking positive thoughts- negativity will dampen your spirit
Keep repeating to yourself that you are grateful for what you have
Show your partner, spouse that you love them
Get out of the ‘state of fear’
Be calm and be prepared
Eat healthily – keep away from high carb diets and alcohol
Life as we knew it will not be the same.
I have a few fears for our future relationships.But I will be positive, helpful, empathize with people and be there for when they need me.
We are what we feel not what we see – don’t forget that.
The new way of life will be challenging for a lot of folks so they will need a helping hand.
Will you be there to hold it?
Take care and keep safe
