7 months into lockdown, how has your life changed?

Posted on

My life, just like everyone else has been one big rollercoaster ride in the last 7 months.
Some incredibly challenging and emotional things have happened to me but also on the flip side I have turned my life around so that each day is quieter, more stress free, I have lots more time for myself and I can still continue to live my purpose.
The last 5 weeks have been probably some of the saddest of my life – in fact I actually can’t remember going through anything as heart-breaking as this. We suffered a family loss and the heartache it has caused is beyond comprehension, we all know that time does heal but even with this in my mind all I want to do is take the pain away from the two people that are suffering the most but I don’t have the power to do this, all I can do is support, hold space and give them every ounce of my love.
What has helped me get through this time……. Honestly just sitting with it and feeling my emotions, not running, not escaping, not busying myself to avoid feeling but allowing myself to cry, giving myself time alone, hiding away from the world but also talking to others and not trying or pretending to be happy, pretending everything is ok because it’s not. And of course my yoga and meditation practice.
The way we heal is not to avoid the feelings but to sit with them, feel them, allow them to be there and work with them no matter how painful it can be.
I also want to talk about something really positive that has happened in my life, I have turned my business around so that I’m not working ALL the time, as a self-employed person it is very easy to just work especially when it’s something you love.
I love my job but I also want to feel free from the need to be busy, society often teaches us that if we are busy we are successful when actually we might be busy and successful in our business but if we are too busy to enjoy our life’s then how can this be success.
Due to the job I do it can often mean working early mornings and evenings and having time off in the day – with this time off in the day I used to sit on my laptop looking at ways I should be driving my business forward or pretending I was doing this when actually I’d spend time quite a lot of the time scrolling facebook/Instagram and wasting time.
Most of my business is now online – I adore my online yoga studio – it has brought me a sense of community, allowed me to reach out to not just people that live near me but also all over the UK/Europe in fact the world - I can continue to teach yoga and meditation every day and I feel more and more connected to so many more people, don't get me wrong i desperately miss live classes but right now i am grateful to be able to continue to teach in this way.
In the last month I’ve launched my new website so that anyone and everyone can be a part of my studio without the need to be on any social media channels, after watching the documentary on Netflix ‘Social Dilemma’ this is so important.
I feel incredibly blessed, incredibly grateful that I can continue to do my job, live my purpose and help so many people to become connected to themselves through yoga and meditation, I have the ability to help change lives and wow what a job that is.
Life hasn’t been easy the last 7 months but my business and life has become even more special,  I have now allowed myself to spend my time off in the day going for a walk, meeting up with friends for coffees/walks, reading, napping, hanging with my Cookie (cat) and generally appreciating my life rather than feeling guilty for not working more or being busier.
