Felling unmotivated during COVID-19? Are you someone who is currently unemployed, isolated at home and feeling out of routine, missing social interaction with a slight case of ADHD?..... LOL SAME!
Are you someone who thinks their world is ending? someone who only sees the negative in life current state?
'First things first I'm the realest'.. kidding, But seriously although things aren't ideal and we are feeling everything but normality right now we need to take control of what we can control and that is re creating our daily habits and views.
1. Create a 'to do' list for the day if you are now unemployed
By creating a 'to do' list you are setting intention for your day and by setting intention you are starting your day with purpose! If you are someone who likes routine and structure this will make you feel sane even if your to do list is to sit on the couch and watch 2 Netflix shows followed by cooking yourself some pop corn. Your 'to do' list could look how ever you want it to look.
Amy's current schedule :

4pm - Train weights
5:30pm - Cook dinner/ relax
2. Move you bodies
Exercise gives you endorphins and endorphins make you happy! whether you like exercise or not its good for your soul. go for a walk, go for a run, do some burpees in your lounge room and be thankful that you have the opportunity to do these simple things that we take for granted each day. How amazing that we have this thing called instagram where you have access to HUNDREDS of free work out videos, that we live in the most amazing place in the whole entire world and we CAN put our feet in the sand for a morning walk or the slaty clean beach water on our skin after a surf or a swim!
3. Staying positive
Every negative situation has a positive it depends how you want to look at. For me although my current situation isn't ideal I am so blessed that I can work from home, I am defiantly not making the money I was before, hanging with my friends, living my lavish life on the weekends , going to the gym each day, getting my yummy take away foods but the positive outcome is I am no longer at risk being in contact with hundreds of people a week, my body has never felt so rested and taken care of, I have time to cook myself nutritious meals with love, I am blessed that I can be at peace with myself and learn to appreciate all of life's simple pleasures that have been taken away for now.
Through all this darkness there is so much light. There is time to rest for those who felt worked into the ground, there is now time for parents to spend with there children and partners, there is now time to train & eat well if you couldn't find the balance before, If you're single dating might not be ideal your given the chance to really chat and have actual conversations with someone. (hehe no one night stands.. for now anyway)
4. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable
Use this time to go deep within yourself! Most of you are being forced out of your comfort zone and this is where growth happens! this is an amazing opportunity for change. Being home bound almost 24/7 can be very confronting, but being confronted my friend might just be what you need. If your work and finances have suffered from this get out of your comfort zone and find a new way baby! because you can! I believe in you!
Its time to appreciate the little things, the people, the loved ones, the work colleagues, the exercise, the city we live in because at the end of the day this life we live can be taken from us in the blink of an eye! now is your time to figure out what really matters to get your shit together if you aren't happy, change it, get happy!
My heart breaks for those who have been affected by this tragedy, its scary ( I am shitting myself) but if we live in fear nothing positive with come from this! I prey those around me and around the world affected have a full recovery and continue to live a healthy happy life after this. Don't be a dick you aren't invincible take care of yourself, stay strong and trust that this is all part of the plan
