I’ve been a little bummed out lately by the number of women who have, over the past year, used the pandemic to go into hiding. Yes, we’ve all been isolated in some way during this time, but I’ve seen too many of us using that isolation to hide – hide our weight, our loneliness, our fear of the future…so many things! This just makes me so sad! Handling the stress of COVID and its restrictions was hard enough without adding in the stress of covering up the things that are bothering us. That’s why I’m urging you to make today the day you stop hiding!
No matter what it is that’s been holding you back, it’s time to craft a plan to move forward. It starts with being honest with yourself. For example:
- If you’re unhappy with pandemic weight gain, make some simple changes to get back on a healthier path – drink more water, cut back on sugar, start walking a few times a week. Even these small tweaks will signal to yourself that you’re ready to get back to living.
- If you’re lonely, reach out to a friend via phone or FaceTime or Zoom. Texting is great but sometimes we all need a more personal connection. You could also think about volunteering; helping others is a natural endorphin boost (and bonus – you might even meet a quality guy while you volunteer!)
- If you can’t stop worrying about the future, I want you to remember that worrying about future events is like praying for something you don’t want! Try your best to remain present in the present. Worrying about things that may or may not even happen does nothing but rob you of your peace.
Spring is a time for renewal and throwing off the heavy blankets of winter. What can you do for yourself today to find that sense of renewal and a brighter outlook? How can you start fresh? I love a good ritual! Maybe it’s time to do a ritual of your own. Light a candle and say goodbye to the past, then write a letter to the present, thanking it for its gifts, and another to the future about how excited you are to meet it! Don’t make the mistake of thinking this is cheesy. The way you connect to your own energy and to the universe can have a powerful impact on your results. Take charge, let go, start over and watch what happens!
