I thought I would put a list together so far upon what I have learned during the time of quarantine in the UK.

  • The News can be detrimental to your health
    • This one is pretty obvious. In the times of the coronavirus pandemic, the news has been the go to source of information. Whilst this has been good for the public to be informed, the rates of depression are on the rise. I remember at the start of the pandemic, I use to google the death rates of the virus in the UK DAILY. Granted, my parents hold a pessimistic view about the situation ( they still read the news) and this impacts how I start the day. However, by starting the day, not reading the news; has made me more of a positive individual. This has made me stronger.
  • Meditation, and staying present is important
    • I have consistently been meditating throughout this time of quarantine. This is the most important time of my daily routine, where I just sit with my thoughts; counting the breaths . This had a tremendous impact on my levels of stress. Being more aware of my emotions has allowed me to control these to be churned into positivity. Ferris Bueller once said “Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you might miss it”. Meditation has given me access to staying present.
  • I love my dogs so much
    • Going on dog walks everyday has broken my day up. Both of my dogs have kept me going. From making me angry due to running off into a field, to rolling around in a muddy puddle; which made me laugh.
  • I am so grateful for this time
  • I am very grateful to be alive, with my family and friends being healthy and safe. I am grateful to be living in a nice home; not struggling with my financial side, to be able to focus on my own projects.
  • My aggression
    • I still have a lot of built up anger inside of me; since I was younger. It is a everyday work in progress to improve my state of mind, so I may be happier and healthy for the forthcoming times.
  • My beliefs
    • What I believe that I am capable of, is in pandemonium. I can do anything I want; no limits. I am able to do something new, and believe in myself.
