As we’ve gone through the last couple of weeks in our new state of “Shelter At Home”, have you been beating up on yourself because you aren’t sticking to your “lifestyle”?
I say don’t be too hard on yourself! We all have special challenges that we’ve been up against during this time. Challenges that we’ve never even thought of before. Home schooling children for the first time in our lives, working from home instead of at our office, dealing with kids that are home all the time, dealing with the hubby that is home all the time!!!!
So take my advice and do the best that you can with your meal prep and plan. I can say that I have done my meal prep, but when the stress has gone up, I’ve eaten pretty much whatever I wanted to. And I’m not beating myself up over it.
We may end up with a new normal after all this is over. So what is your new normal going to be? Let’s just take a few minutes and be grateful for the things we still have – Our ability to smile, our ability to say “thank you” to people who are on the front lines, thanking the truck drivers for risking their lives to make deliveries so we have food to eat.
I challenge you to sit down for 15 minutes in a quiet place and ask yourself what you can do to help out! It may only be to share your food with a family next door who has very little, or maybe it is making masks for the healthcare workers and your friends and family, or maybe it is just giving away a smile so someone else can feel hope.
Please do something for someone else today!!!! And stop beating yourself up for cheating on your lifestyle.
