You may not know it, and it may be something you don't want to think about, but National Grief Awareness Week starts today (2nd to the 8th December)
Now I am not sure how much thought was put into my list (I cannot remember, thank you perimenopause), but the first thing that stuck me, which I am sure you will question also, is that I only managed to think of eighteen things to put on my list
Not going to lie, the first five weeks of lockdown have been a well deserved rest for me after a February full of overwhelm after overwhelm
But the secret to being emotionally and mentally healthy during isolation (according to me) is to be occupied enough, rest enough, and stay interested in things you would usually be interested in; and not to feel pressured to do anything more.
Grief changes minute to minute, let alone day to day, and so getting on with work and home-life has been ok, and then suddenly not. Going to buy a new lightbulb for the kitchen took abit longer than expected as I needed a howl in the car before I could go in the shop.
