Like most people right now, COVID-19 has tried it's best to take our attention from our daily lives, our businesses, and has us questioning what is this "new normal"...
It's no wonder that so many of us --- yes, me included --- have found it difficult to stay focused and productive.
My husband and I moved to our place on March 1. We barely got moved in when it seemed that the entire world took on a whole new meaning of what normal life looks like.
Things we took for granted, such as going to a grocery store, have now become a plan & prepare type of situation. Visiting with friends, family, and colleagues is now all done via teleconferencing of some type. I find myself looking forward to our weekend "Happy Hour" visits with our friends and I've never been so excited when the Duo Call from my family rings!
But how do we take the situation that has impacted us to the very heart & soul and figure out what our new normal is so that we can remain productive? The first step is being open & honest with yourself and everyone else around you. Let them know that you are still finding your footing in this temporary new world.
Here are 3 specific, concrete strategies for how I'm continuing to stay productive and focused.
I could feel myself being drawn to watching the news, listening to reports, and tuning more into social media than my own work so I stopped those poor habits in their tracks as soon as I could.
I have the time and the place for catching up on important news, working, catching up with family & friends, connecting with colleagues, continuing self-care practices, and being able to unwind both physically and mentally each evening.
