Even those of us that are still "essential" and working are struggling a bit with trying to feel productive during this interesting time in our world. So, how do we maintain our positive and productive mental in a time where we're asked to stay at home and do nothing?
One of the biggest things you bitches need to remember is that you aren't being lazy by sitting on your couch all day. You're literally doing what the CDC is asking you to do and you are helping! You are keeping people safe and keeping yourself safe. You're literally doing what is being asked of you. That isn't laziness, it's doing the right thing. Understanding this doesn't help when you get stir crazy and wanna rip a wall out of your home with your bare hands.
Listen bitches, you could throw yourself into a hundred new projects or learn something new but if you don't, that's okay too. There seems to be a lot of pressure on people right now to come out of this quarantine with something new to share with the world and if that new thing is simply a week worth of rest, that's okay.
I have, thankfully, still been able to work during this time at my restaurant. While that has been challenging on its own, when I get home, there are still a lot of things that I want to do. Last week I ended up pulling some really long days at the restaurant and I wasn't able to do a lot of the work from home that I've been doing and I got a little depressed. I would just lay on my couch and watch tv after work and I felt so unproductive and lazy. But the truth is that I worked my ass off all week and it is okay to rest. In times of stress and being overwhelmed with the situations we are in , it's okay to rest.
I feel like we are about to start getting back to normal in the next two weeks. This means that there is going to be people that will ask that question; "What did you do during quarantine?" Your answer doesn't have to be something profound. And you shouldn't let anyone make you feel bad for not doing something super productive during quarantine. By simply staying at home, you've been productive in a real massive way. Don't let anyone tell you that you should have done more.
Are any of you bitches feeling the pressure of this? Tell me about it in the comments!
