How Did Coronavirus Affect My Life?
This pandemic has been difficult for many people. This time has challenged our mental and physical health. It has been difficult to stay in as I have always been one to be out and about running errands and helping my parents with their own. I started to feel enclosed getting more frustrated and a little more impatient than usual and eating more because you feel that you are bored has been hard for many. I can see how important socializing is important to an adult let alone a child who is having to deal with schooling in their own home. Working at a school, I know that my children are safer at home, but virtual learning is taking a toll on their mental and physical health. This is where it has been extremely challenging for me to keep my sanity and staying focused on being safe. I am still having to go into work but are limited in people coming on campus. Being around other people has helped my anxiety. I have learned to be more patient with myself and my children, something that I have always struggled with my entire life. This pandemic has hit me in the face with giving me an attitude change. I’ve learned to realize that this whole situation is out of my control and need to take it day by day. I’ve also been able to talk about my feelings and letting go of the frustration that I tend to carry with me. Overall, I need to slow down and take a deep breath in order to go about my day with minimal worries and having a clear state of mind.
