Find It & Keep At It

As humans, we love to be in control of the ins and outs of life. Though, as life will have it, we cannot and will not always be in control.

In the wake of the current pandemic, many have lost even the littlest control that they once had. A controlled routine as simple as getting up and getting ready for work/school/church/etc has now become, for some, getting up and sitting in. With so much free time, boredom strikes.

The good news is, you can still reclaim the control you once had. Though the routine may vary, you can still be in control of how your day begins and ends. Find a routine and stick with it.

You can begin your day as any other day before the pandemic: get up and get ready. Next, eat breakfast if that’s your style. Then, indulge in some form of physical exercise, or meditation. Afterwards, engage in some sort of project: could be spring cleaning, clearing out the garage, decluttering the fridge and closet, remodeling or rearranging your bedroom, spending time with the kids, etc etc. Before you know it, it’s lunch time. Afterwards, rest or entertain yourself with your favourite past time activities. Soon come dinner time and then bed time. Each day doesn’t have to be exactly the same—for those that appreciate variety, you can switch up the project for each day. Find a structure that works for you, and keep at it.

Realistically, there also will be days when you wake up and don’t feel like doing nothing and that’s absolutely fine! In fact, I’m having one of those days, but thanks to technology, I can pull up WordPress and compose a post at the comfort of my bed.

There’s no “Most Productive” award to be received at the end of all of these. Now is the time to do that which you once never had the time to do, now is the time to engage in activities that makes you happy and brings you joy (eg gardening, knitting, sewing, etc), it’s a time to bond and reconnect with loved ones. Most importantly, now more than ever, is the time to relax.

  1. This is timely advice.
    Realizing how limited the control we have our life is can be disconcerting. Every day seems too repetitive for me, and I can’t imagine how much worse it would have been if I didn’t my hobbies to distract me.

      1. I feel so embarrassed now that I’ve read my previous comment again. Goodness me, how did you manage to understand my comment with all those glaring typos?

  2. Such good advice. We must take each day as it comes & not be hard on ourselves if we decide to have a do-nothing or binge-watch day (or three)

  3. Spring is finally here, so with my extra time, I’m hoping to be out on my garden patio where I feel most restful and at peace.

  5. “Though, as life will have it, we cannot and will not always be in control.” This is so very true indeed. Great and uplifting advice. I truly I’m getting the time to do that which I was unable to do before eg reading, writing, gardening, etc. Hope you’re good and continue to stay blessed and safe in JESUS name! πŸ™‚
