Resurrection – Productivity in COVID Times

Listen to the podcast

There are several incredibly amusing jokes about not getting out of your PJ’s during social distancing. While I’m getting a kick out of them, I have to be careful. Through the years I’ve learned that my physical appearance actually has a deep impact on me. I remember this moment when I was brushing my hair between the gym and my next appointment. I realized that I was pulling myself together, not because I needed to look presentable for my next meeting, but because I wanted to look good for myself. With that in mind, who I see or don’t see in the course of a day should have little impact on the choices I make when I get ready in the morning.
In these COVID-19 times, I’ve noticed that my productivity can be measured by the tightness of my pants. The looser I go, the less I get done. I know that investing time in how I look will directly affect how I feel throughout the day. How I feel will directly affect how I treat myself. How I treat myself will affect how I treat others. Putting my clothes out the night before, blow drying my hair, getting dressed to my shoes—these all become important steps in my carona-self-care. And as it turns out, they also become very important steps in my corona-family-care as well.

    I would love for you to join me as I work to undo these old patterns and evolve to create a more serene and accepting existence. (And you should know that I still want to ear flick the little knuckleheads {this includes my husband} when they don’t rinse a dish before putting it in the dishwasher — always a work in progress.)
