Coping with Covid
How is everyone’s isolation going? This week hasn’t been too bad. Especially since missing our wedding this past weekend, I am doing fairly well.
I must say that my first few weeks of isolation were not great for my mental health. I’m too much of an extrovert and social butterfly (duh) to be kept from the rest of the world. But, thankfully, I have wonderful people in my life and I am getting by and struggling a little less.
I have been teaching my boot camps and personal training via Zoom and other social media video platforms and that has been going pretty fantastic. I’ve also been doing my own fitness thing – working out, running, walking, participating in a new 60 day challenge. I’ve been reading – I finished John Grisham’s recent book and started a Candace Cameron book. I’ve been engaging in some really great conversations. We’ve been watching some really bad movies thanks to Prime and Netflix. I mean seriously bad…so dumb, so lame. I’ve been packing. I’ve been snuggling with my cat a lot. Thankfully she snuggles back.
I’ve been having weird nightmares since isolation began. I’ve probably had 5 or 6 or 7 terrible nightmares. The other night I woke up after having a nightmare. The poor Man didn’t know what to think. I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t swallow, and my heart rate was through the roof. I’m not sure if they’re caused from stress or what…but I am not a fan.
Thankfully I am back to work for the next couple of days and then isolation for another week. It’s great to get out of the house and see people. I feel comfortable at work. Although, we have all had our stressful moments.
So that is it for my little update…simply because I cannot think of anything to post. I’m sure something will come to me.
