TIP 3: DON’T SET YOURSELF UNREALISTIC GOALS
When it comes to the national lockdown, everyone has a different way of dealing with the major changes to their lifestyle. As long as these aren’t negatively impacting your health, there are no right or wrong ways to do this!
However, the temptation to compare our situation to someone else’s is strongly ingrained in us and isn’t helped by our dependence on our phones and social media. The important thing to remember is that everyone is different and works at different speeds.
While your neighbor might have run 5 kilometers, meal-prepped her week, and caught up with her family all before breakfast, this doesn’t mean the same is expected of you.
Setting yourself unachievable goals for a lockdown will leave you feeling de-motivated and will affect your feeling of self-worth. Nothing worse than that!
Instead, take things at your own pace. Check in with yourself regularly: are you doing too much and feeling burnt out? Are you not doing enough and feeling lethargic? See how you feel and most importantly, take care of yourself!
