#DailyWritingChallenge Day 29: Community

We don’t live or work in a commune and I’m not a hippy or hipster, but there is something of the idea of living communally, sharing resources and helping each other to survive that appeals. At work in school: A sense of community is important, I think, when surrounded by so many others. Rubbing shouldersContinue reading “#DailyWritingChallenge Day 29: Community”

#DailyWritingChallenge Day 28: Rituals

I don’t have any rituals at the moment, perhaps apart from this blog I have managed for a month now. Thank you Hannah and the #DailyWritingChallenge. My routine is a mess and different everyday in lockdown. I have habits for sure but not all of them are healthy or good, in my opinion. I sometimesContinue reading “#DailyWritingChallenge Day 28: Rituals”

#DailyWritingChallenge Day 27: Perspective

Viewpoint. Opinion. Point of view. Standing at the top of a mountain looking down on the world below, the swirls of clouds swim around the lower peaks… a sense of empowering accomplishment fills endorphin-fuelled lungs.

#DailyWritingChallenge Day 17: Optimism

Last year I was told I have ADHD and I may have ASD. I had suspected the earlier for years, but I went to find out when I saw myself in my son. It wasn’t that anything was disastrously wrong… and yet, I recognised in him the anger, panic and frustration when overwhelmed by aContinue reading “#DailyWritingChallenge Day 17: Optimism”

#DailyWritingChallenge Day 25: Well-being

Well-being. Being well. I am well today. Are you well? What is ‘well’ anyway? Sleep: getting enough sleep, at least seven hours. Sleep deprivation can cause the sensation of feeling drunk after several days of insufficient rest. Brain-fog, confused thoughts, paranoia, migraine, disorganisation, digestive problems, deceleration of productivity and a lack of efficiency. Or, soContinue reading “#DailyWritingChallenge Day 25: Well-being”

#DailyWritingChallenge Day 23: Trust

“What do you need?” At work, feeling the trust to answer honestly to this question takes time and a good, professional relationship grounded in mutual respect and understanding. An understanding that both parties are working with the same time end goal in mind, in a team in which there is no division and purpose isContinue reading “#DailyWritingChallenge Day 23: Trust”

Roll up, roll up! Grab your feelings wheel…! Shaped like a roulette wheel, throw the dice and select your mood for the second, minute, hour, morning, afternoon, evening, day! It’s not a gamble but sometimes it can feel that way lately. It’s a funny time in this Coronavirus lockdown. Some days I’m at home withContinue reading “#DailyWritingChallenge Day 22: Emotions”
