Through all this corona-craziness, everything you once took for granted is now questionable. For me, thinking that most of the precautions we are facing are a bit obtrusive, it makes you wonder if we have ever really been safe to live and breath and go about the normal of our former lives. You know, B.C., before Corona.
When this first began for us, around mid-March, if I’m not mistaken, I remember, however naively, thinking that this would just be a few weeks and we’d be back to normal. Now, I’m not Doctor and I don’t know anything about disease control, which is probably why I am naive about thinking some of the PPE is a bit out of control, but what I do feel is that we have naively given up some of our usuals because of Corona thinking they would quickly come back. That’s the battle I am fighting today and I want to help you fight as well.
B.C, I would go to the gym 3 times weekly and do everything I could to destroy my body. It became straight up fuel for me and would propel me through some of the toughest days. A.C., I’ve worked out less than 5 times and they all being nothing more than a glorified stretch.
B.C., I had tons of momentum and motivation to accomplish so many goals I had in place for 2020. A.C., I’ve shelved many of those goals, because I’m naively thinking that I’ll get back to them when we get back to normal.
I realized, probably 6 weeks too late, that I’m being way to naive and if anything is going to be normal, I’ve got to act like this is normal. I cannot depend on anyone or anything for exercise. That’s on me, my mindset and my own determination.
Goals don’t need to delay simply because of an extenuating circumstance. Maybe they need to flex a bit and change expectation, but that doesn’t mean they cannot still be accomplished.
I’ve spoken recently about the importance of routine and how beneficial it can be in your life. Maybe I need to take a dose of my own meds.
No matter the loss of what was, the best we can do is focus on today and what needs to happen now.
What is life going to be like I.C.—In Corona. I’ll be honest with you. I do not want to crawl out of the whole that has been quarantine trying to pick up where we left off only to find that I have no idea where that was and having lost so many days when I could have still been productive.
What’s the first thing you need to do with a renewed mindset of In Corona?
