How do you want to come out of this quarantine?
I think it is helpful to keep your end goal in mind.
You are presented with an opportunity to learn about yourself.
You can day drink, sleep in, get lazy at your job, neglect your parenting duties.
You can use this time as an excuse to skip workouts and eat what you want.
You can binge on Netflix.
You can soothe the discomfort of sitting in silence with online shopping, alcohol, porn, or whatever vice takes you away from the moment.
You can forego hygiene, beauty, and self care routines.
You can stay up late.
You can come out of quarantine more tired, sick, bloated, antsy, and wound up than before.
That is your choice.
Or you can use this time to take care of you.
You can spend time with yourself getting to know yourself.
You can find what is your energy calling for today, and then give yourself what you desire.
You can find new ways to move your body.
