This is not an easy time for anybody. In fact if we're being honest, it totally sucks! We barely came through lockdown round 1 with some shred of sanity intact. We had a tantalising glimpse of freedom, remembering what the sun feels like, and then thrown back into lockdown round 2!
So now that we've had our rant what would be a good use of our energy to while away the time? Here are some of my go to options right now:
Refine, refine, refine!
So while you don't have your usual amount of business to keep you occupied...now is a great time to work on those backend structures that you've been wanting to setup since forever! Review your lead to client processes and smooth out any bumps. Any work you do in this is sowing into your future clients having a fantastic experience!
Take up crocheting
This is a bad idea! If you're seriously thinking of this...please stop right now! :)
Maybe you just need a break. Need to disconnect from the socials, put on your pjs and drink a cup of tea...or whiskey if that's more your thang! Don't feel bad to have some "do nothing" days...giving your brain and body a break is always a good thing and can help restore your energy if you've been in a slump.
Have a mental minute
You might not have the luxury of extra time right now. In fact you may be swamped by managing children at home, working from home, life stuck at home! But you can be a little kind to yourself. Give yourself a minute to appreciate you. To take a deep breath. To enjoy that sunshine coming through the window. To forget the seemingly endless list of tasks you could be doing. To just be.
Summary: You are a champion. It totally sucks. It won't last forever :)
