How about we regard this forced pause as an opoortunity? Your mission today is to learn how to make the most out of the current situation.

Task 1: The calm before the storm

 

We can’t wait to get back to a resemblance of normality, but what if we decided to enjoy the wait instead? Regard this as the last few days of a holiday or extended leave. Let your children off the hook and allow them to play. Relax your expectations regarding a dust-free house.
 

Instead of scrambling to get ready, how about having some good old-fashioned fun? Play board games. Go for extended walks (just keep a distance to others!). Turn off the TV and talk to each other. Have a fondue or raclette dinner with the whole family. Read if you’re on your own.

Task 2: Pause for breath

 

This pause for breath is an opportunity to evaluate your life. What’s actually worth rushing back to? Do you still want the normality you had before? Maybe it’s time to ask yourself some deep questions. Take some time and write down your anwers.
 

  1. What are the most important things in your life?
  2. What can’t you live without?
  3. Also, what are your passions? What makes you happy?
  4. What are you willing to put up with in order to have 1), 2), and 3)?

 

Consider your answers when you plan on re-starting “normal”. This is the perfect time to create a “normal” you actually love.
