What a quick transition into May?! Common consensus is that the month of March dragged on quite a bit, while April has been and gone so quickly, and already we are into May. Quarantine life has made the passing of time a strange concept.
I wonder if I will ever get used to waking up according to my own schedule, or to having ‘too much’ spare time, or even to only seeing friends and family virtually. I find myself checking the news much more regularly than before, hoping for some semblance of good news or improvement to the current situation. At one point in early lock down I was reading the news at multiple points in the day. I found that this was not beneficial to my mental health and I found myself showing signs of anxiety. While I wanted to keep up to date with current happenings, it made my heart uneasy and my stress levels grow. At this point in the lock down the UK news seems to have levelled off. The general public know the rules to social distancing and how to go about their daily lives, it is more just a question of when things will change again.
Hoping everyone around the world is staying safe in light of the current situation!
