Choices: The crazy relationship we've developed with technology during the quarantine

I can’t tear myself away from the computer ! It’s become my new lover.

Totally enmeshed !

But oh my g…….I get so sick of it.

Just the way I might feel with a boyfriend would I be in quarantine with him.

I’m sure I’m not the only one feeling that way, whether it be the computer, TV, BOYFRIEND / GIRLFRIEND / HUSBAND / WIFE.

Step away, disengage, slam shut the computer or get out of your partner’s energy. Revive yourself with the now “famous” walks, take a bath with sea salt, knit or play indoor tennis.

You can either…

Glue yourself to the computer / TV

Hate your partner

Get overwhelmed and frustrated

Eat hot dogs and chips

Tear your hair off

Get depressed (easily done)

Wash your hands and scrub the apartment every 5 minutes

Or you can….

Slam the computer shut after 15 minutes or an hour

Jump up and down to get your blood flowing

Swear a little bit (can’t believe I just said that. I’m a professional after all - but it can actually make you feel better), so swear, while you jump. Get that crazy frustrated energy off of you.

Eat a salad, drink a smooooooooothie (maybe a little chocolate as a treat?)

Take a nap

Dream (yes, daydreaming is important. That’s where we get inspiration. It boosts your creativity and problem solving)

Go out listen to the birds

Sing a song

Wash your hands every 10 minutes……………

Reach out to a professional if you need to talk, or call a friend.

Go out and fly a kite.

Feel the freedom under your wings

A boarded up and deserted city. It brought my thoughts back to Germany ’39 and The Great Depression. Walking around NY recently, the city felt deserted and sad. Heaviness was looming over us and fear
