THE NEVER-ENDING TRIALS OF QUARANTINE

I’ve been waking up the past few mornings not sure what day it is. The weeks are blurring together and staying in pajamas until 2 doesn’t seem to be helping my body clock.

The more time we spend indoors, the greater the need to be intentional in controlling our emotions with one another. My kids are constantly bickering and I feel claustrophobic in my own home.

In more ways than one, I’ve learned that feeling sorry for myself gets me nowhere. Actually that’s not true, it sends me reeling backward. I’m not stagnant by worrying, I’m plummeting into despair.

I’m not minimizing what you’re going through. This is hard. The numbers of positive cases are growing, and we’re each starting to know a few of those people by name. It’s scary right now. But curling up in a ball and hiding under the covers isn’t going to do any good for your mind if you continue to use it as your coping mechanism.

So instead of freaking yourself out, give yourself purpose in this time of waiting by looking for ways to serve others around you. We’re all going through a trial right now. Let’s help lift each other up and forge deeper relationships along the way.

HELPING FROM HOME

Here are few simple ways to help from your own home:

  • Cook your family dinner
  • Set up an outdoor activity
  • Have a family game night
  • Order elderly neighbors groceries
  • Make medical masks for doctors
  • FaceTime/Call a grandparent
  • Check in on those living alone
  • Pray for those who are sick or anxious
