SEQUESTERED PSYCHOTHERAPIST

Day 46


I've been with clients all day via Telemedicine. Many of them seem to be feeling the burden of living in this strange new world. I totally understand that. It's been week since many have been to work or just to see friends.


Yesterday I woke up feeling a little stir crazy myself. I think I just needed to get out of the house. It took me a little while to get going but eventually I did.


It was so warm out yesterday, that it felt like summer. The sun was actually hot on my skin, as I worked in my garden patio. I worked out there for several hours and when I finished, I felt so much better, than I had when I first woke up. Sometimes we don't feel ready to do anything. We might have ideas or thoughts of things we want to do or need to do, but we remain stuck. I have discovered, that if I wait for inspiration to change my actions, I may be waiting for a long time. The thing to do is to push yourself a little sometimes. Sometimes we need to bargain with ourselves. I share with clients, if they commit to doing something for ten minutes, the task won't seem as big and limiting the time to ten minutes reinforces that.


I have used this in my own life, when there are large tasks and it helped me. I'm so happy that I pushed myself a little to go outside yesterday. The exercise and warm sun revived me in body, mind and spirit. When we have warm weather, get outside if you can. That vitamin D3 from the sun works wonders.


A short post today as I'm writing on a short break.


Be safe and remember that this will not last forever.
