I went from the woman who said “Okay 2020, we need a redo” to the woman who says “ Okay we got this, time to fix your mindset.”
This has been a tough time for almost everyone,I’m so happy thru this I have learned to set my mind and time to adding more self-love and self-care day’s keeping my normal morning routine with a slight difference on my wake up time.I changed my negativity to positivity, trust me a lay-off is not easy,I went home in tears thinking Okay, what now but I was able to refocus my attention.
I wanted to be active looking for work even when the requirement to do so was 0 jobs a week until maybe Phase 3 re-open but I figured I can take this time to put my resume out there and try. I wanted to continue using my skills as my role was in cosmetic dermatology, checking in and out patients daily amongst other tasks.I also signed up for Free courses offered with Google to polish up self learned skills in Marketing.This is not a productivity contest,I just wanted to train my brain to some type of normalcy.Some say to stick to your normal routine which for me has helped my overall mental health.
Personal styling also changed making me focus on Poshmark and coming up with unique item description shop to make it seem I was styling potential buyer with quotes like:
“Can be paired with a bodysuit, jean jacket and converse for a relaxing yet still feel sexy date night.”
During today’s uncertain times, sometimes taking a break is the best.Its not a productivity contest.If you want to create content,Create and if you want to use this time to reset or refocus,do it.
I have been doing a mixture of both.Some days I’m following a list of task’s for the day and some day’s I’m picking a new movie to watch.
I adore self-care during this time,While I wish I can take a bath every day for the sake of being safe,I take a bath twice a week using “Da Bomb” bath bombs that comes with a surprise message,Epsom salt and I’m currently reading “Girl,Stop Apologizing” by Rachel Hollis while I relax in the tub or sitting out on my patio.
I started cooking more than normal and so have my friends.We all agreed the most positive thing to look at is the amount of money we have saved by not going out as much as we did in 2019.The proof is in my budget.I was laid off in March,I was emotional and powered thru to look at the positives.
Fashion never sleeps for me,I may not get dolled up for work as a Patient Rep at a Dermatology and Med Spa clinic.I found myself getting dolled up to make Tik Tok videos or for Happy Hour Facetime.I have tried to keep up a Social Life and that by far as been the healthist thing to do during this time, quarantine doesn’t mean not talking to friends but to come together and come up with creative ways to cope with todays Pandemic.
I have posted more clothing on Poshmark while cleaning out my closet and they are listed at a discounted price per item.
