What does your life look like as you emerge from corona-lockdown?
What do you want your life to look like as you emerge from corona-lockdown?
With all the rapid changes we have experienced in recent months and the less then desirable consequences that COVID-19 has forced upon us, it would be great to focus on the positives that this extraordinarily rare opportunity that the lockdown has given most of us – and that is time to slow down and time to reflect on the way we have been living our lives…
- what are the those things you do each day on auto-pilot?
- are those things enriching your life or undermining your health and depleting you?
- are you living your purpose? What is your life-purpose?
- are you living a meaningful life?
- are you living your life aligned to your values? Have you thought about what things are important to you?
- how were you living 12 months ago? How would you like to be living in 12 month’s time?
- what new habits have you developed either mindfully or mindlessly during lockdown?
Iso-Drinking has increased significantly during lockdown
It was reported in the media over the weekend that alcohol sales have increased significantly during the corona-lockdown. Stress and anxiety, great uncertainty, overwhelm with both kids and parents working and schooling from home, and boredom and lack of routine were cited as the reason why many of us are drinking more at the moment.
In fact, 1 in 4 people said they were drinking more alcohol with 1 in 6 people drinking every day.
Along with increased alcohol consumption is increased comfort-eating. Reports of weight gain, sluggishness, fatigue, and apathy are the biggest complaints we hear in-store and in our clinics due to comfort eating during lock-down.
Our brains are wired to seek out high-fat; high-sugar & high-salt foods. And so if we start relying on these foods as a crutch for stress and anxiety or boredom or lack of routine, our brain very quickly responds by reactivating that neural pathway and the craving cycle begins.
And finally, the lack of routine and forced social isolation has compromised our exercise routines. The enforced working from home has even compromised and reduced the incidental movement that most of us did pre-Covid. And of course this negatively impacts not only our waistline but our mental health and physical health generally.
So what have you learned about yourself during Lockdown and how are you going live your life as we emerge from Corona?
