Day 8 in self-isolation due to having travelled ..... I’m “hanging on” as this too shall pass 🙌🏼
As with most situations in life , we can often find the hidden silver lining however it is NOT always easy!!!! This temporary discomfort and challenge that we all feel , will somehow pass. All we can do is hold steady and trust with an open heart ❤️ I generally don’t adhere much to strict routines and prefer going “with the flow” ... in this instance I’ve needed to create something of a routine to hold me steady.
This is my routine - which I have established , on & off, over many years guided by selective input from specialists in their field that have inspired me - hope that it offers any one of you an idea or inspiration :
Morning : my face cleansing routine (which I will not miss as without wearing make-up at this time, I feel it even more imperative to take care of my skin ) . Thanks to @iamashkahan
for minimizing my pores and pigment marks .
Ps. I do however desperately miss my super soul facials with @threegraceshealthbeauty
... sublime, other-worldly & not to be missed if you are living in sydney!!!
Yoga & Stretch inspired by @myasana.yoga
Then Meditation (I’ve been practicing @transcendentalmeditation
since I was 12 years old)
Then a blend of work & online connecting.
I stop for lunch and snack time and abide by healthy eating routines - thanks to the lessons learnt from @me_nutrition
I then run, for 30 minutes, up & down the totally isolated fire escape stairs of our building - essential to keep my happy hormones alive and awake!
How blessed most of us are to have Netflix - as this is my treat at the end of the day.
I’ve just completed the short series called “After Life” - really humorous and deeply profound.
And last but not least .... I am beyond blessed to have the company of my inspiring, quirky, funny, soulful and challenging daughter @bella.l.gibor
I will look on this time - regardless of frightening financial challenges - as having been a Blessed Moment in Time.
I hope that you too will all find your personal silver lining in these extra ordinary times .....xx🌙
