Let’s make the most of the time that has been given to us.

Are you feeling a bit dull, bored and a bit jaded with all the restrictions that have been imposed? Welcome to the club! Most of the people I’m interacting with are more than fed up with how long this situation is taking to be resolved. I don’t blame them for feeling that way quite frankly.

However, the way I see it, we have two options: we can be morose, bad-tempered and disappointed, or we can make the most of the time that has been given to us. 

Once we go back to living a normal life, wouldn’t it be nice to say to yourself: “During the period of restrictions, I learned to play a musical instrument”, or “I read all those books that have been sitting on my shelves for far too long, and developed a new skill on top of that!”

Would it not be nice if you knew you spent this time reconnecting with a childhood pastime, or taking on a new hobby, or found an exercise routine you love? If you learned to meditate or reconnected with people you trust and care about but haven’t seen in years because they live far away?”

In my case, I decided to learn how to play bass. Although I’m no Geddy Lee (Rush) or Paul McCartney, learning to play their songs has been a balm for the soul during this time.

So come on, redesign your days and evenings, and create something in your life that will help you navigate these restrictions. No matter how big or small, make it work, make it last and enjoy your gift for days to come.

Always at the service of your wellbeing,
