All the way back to normal mode! The holiday has already been forgotten, but…..what a great week I had. Full of fun and very exciting things. First of all, I’ve told you before that I was feeling a bit down and negative before the holidays, I had no positive feelings at all. For months actually. Since February or so. Now I blamed the menopause.( my GP told me it is not a menopause symptom) But it turned out to be from Covid 19.
Bringing back my positive feelings.
As a chronically ill person, Gerben and I have been very careful the past year and a half. Little to no going out. Hardly see any family or friends. And that had an impact on my mental state. It also took me a week during the holidays to get into the relax mode. But once I realized that negative feeling was caused by the lack of social contacts and normal life, I could place it.
I had been meeting up a bit more, with friends and family, for a few weeks and now during the holidays it suddenly went a lot better. Just go to a restaurant, shop or cinema again. And meet up with family and friends. One just needs that! The weird thing was that once I had expressed my not so positive feelings, things got a lot better. So it’s really true that talking about problems helps…..mm….I am not much of a talker…
A positive week, finally!
Monday, the day after the holiday I was busy with emails and blogging and of course working out again. Tuesday I had a very exciting day with a television crew. I can’t say more yet. But it was fun to do but also exhausting. On Wednesday I had a lovely lunch with friends and we made all kinds of fun plans for outings. On Thursday I received a very nice email for even more television something. Thursday night I had a meeting, no Teams this time, so it was really nice to see and speak to each other again in real. All positive things!
The weekend started of course with Fancy Friday Night (no idea what I am talking about? Check my IG and join my tag #nancysfashionstyle)and a delicious coffee with Tia Maria. Saturday first a work out and in the afternoon sitting in the garden, in the sun, reading, the new Karen Slaughter. In the evening friends came to visit and we played settlers of Cartan. Didn’t win!
On Sunday we cycled a bit, not that far because Gerben had already had a work out in the morning. And at home I made chicken skewers and we turned on the heater and the bbq and ate outside. Then we went in and watched two episodes of Line of Duty. What a good series that is! And what a wonderful weekend it was! I hope you also had a nice weekend and I wish you a nice week!
Did you experience negative feelings because off Covid? Because of the lack of socializing?
