Here we all are, suddenly (well, comparatively suddenly) faced with social isolation as we cope with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Am I the only work-at-home entrepreneur who finds it hard to settle down to work? Most of my client work is on hold at the moment, but there are things I could (and should) be doing with my website, bookkeeping, filing… Yet I sit down to my computer and feel totally without inspiration.
One thing I am doing: I’m NOT beating myself up for not being more productive. (Well, not much, anyway!) Every day I make an effort, then when I run out of steam I just accept it and go into passive mode. (Hey, today I actually wrote and posted a blog post!).
Other things I am doing: I’m praying more. I’m reading more. I’m keeping in touch with family and friends (email, phone). And I’m looking for ways to keep up a positive attitude:
- Walking outside – I have the fortune to have a big open field with a view of the Annapolis River right outside my door
- Listening to music, on CD or on YouTube
- Watching comedies -from my “Dick Van Dyke” show collection to humourous videos on YouTube (check out JeanneRobertson for very funny – and clean – humour!)
We’ll get through this.
Finally, let me share one of my videos with you: Wordless Peace
