The challenges of lockdown have increased anxiety levels for many people including myself. Working from home in a space really not suited for working has created further challenges all of which increase my anxiety levels as well as deceasing my fitness levels.  

Pacing around the room and climbing up and down stairs has become my daily exercise and pausing to breathe when work pressures become too much is my daily medicine. Putting one foot in front of the other, metaphorically and physically, however limited, and taking breaks to breathe and centre myself (using Alexa to set timers for short breaks helps) is my new daily regime that keeps me keeping on when I feel like giving up.

And in the lonely isolation of ‘my office’ I’m reassured by the daily posts I receive from other Moodscopers reminding me that I am part of a community reaching out to others offering comfort, wisdom and a sense of connection, a view of different worlds and shared experiences, reminding me that we all have ways of coping and the means to learn from each other, especially in times like these. So let’s keep on keeping on and breathe.
