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
