It’s so important to remember that this pandemic is “a marathon, not a sprint”. It is also most definitely not a competition in who can come out of this with the most successful transformation.
If you’re one of the people confined to your home, it is important to not judge yourself and your response against others.
We all have friends who are promoting their efforts to beat their 5km pb, learning Japanese, perfecting their home baked Croque-en-bouche or community volunteer championing.
The people who are struggling in some way or far less likely to share this. Picking up a book and finding your attention wanes constantly, that’s ok. Thirty minutes into a box set and not sure what happened in the past twenty? Perfectly normal.
Fatigue has a huge impact on our ability to concentrate. Be kind to yourself.
If a friend approached you with these concerns would you be frustrated with them in the way you might be towards yourself? Absolutely not.
Our next episode of You Are Not a Frog looks at our great expectations for ourselves and how they might be damaging us. Whilst the audio podcast is out on Tuesday, you can enjoy the video of this episode on YouTube.
