Once again, we are in lockdown. How are you doing with that?
The first one wasn't bad, yes, we were in a situation where we didn't know what was happening and one day everything was normal and then shut down but at least we had the weather. We could get out and enjoy the change of the weather as it became warmer and the idea that we might get to see a different view than our four walls. This time is different, we have done this before and "got the t-shirt" we know how it works but know we are stuck more in our four walls. It has become harder to imagine a life outside of the four walls we are in.
It is easier to start to think that things will never change, and we are going to stay here for longer. These thoughts can take quite a toll on someone's thoughts, it is harder to think out of this. Life has got harder in this time, but that does not mean you have to let it take you down.
Overthinking becomes something to do when there is nothing else to do. But that is not going to help. Getting in your mind and staying there is not going to help. It is easy to stay in bed and think that this is it and no one cares about what is going on for you. It is hard to think about getting dressed let alone falling out of bed, but that is where your mind can start to change about how you feel. It's about the start of achieving something and congratulating yourself for it.
