How Are You Feeling About the Lock Down?
Look, you're not here to get advice about how to survive the COVID-19 Lock Down. At least, you shouldn't be - a random dad blogger is not the person you should be looking to for real advice right now.
That being said, I do know that being aware and honest about how you are feeling is generally a good idea - so I'm trying to work out how I feel about the impending lock down.
Here's what I've got so far:
Managing my boys' energy, exercise and entertainment
Juggling work and household chores in a full house
Getting cabin fever
Letting stress and anxiety overflow into my relationship with my wife
Opportunity to work on self-regulation and techniques to control anxiety
Chance to for dad-son time
Get some home maintenance done
Pick up the bass guitar again
Awareness that we are vastly more privileged than most people in this country.
Need to check in on elderly neighbour more
Limiting trips outside as much as possible
Letting the boys have too much screen time
How are you feeling?
