After a year and a half into this pandemic many of us are feeling burnt out, overwhelmed or just plan run down. The good news is that the end is in sight with more people getting vaccinated and new infections steadily decreasing. Nova Scotia and many other provinces are entering a phased reopening so things will slowly get back to normal.
In the meantime a few simple things to lift your spirits and give you a sense of accomplishment that may help you feel less stressed out. Try a 5-10 minute meditation to help change your state of mind. Go for a good 20-30 minute walk in the sunshine, the endorphins and the sun will definitely improve your mood. Make your bed immediately upon getting up as this is will put the first check in the win column for the day. Reach out and call an old friend as the conversation will do you both good.
So if you are in the real estate market like myself and many others just take a deep breath and take it one task at a time. I remind my pre approved clients that it may take several tries to find the offer on the property that sticks. This is a game of patience more than anything else. Knowing that it will all workout eventually is the best attitude to have.
Today I am thankful for a beautifully sunny walk with my dog, a great podcast ( 10% Happier) to listen to while we walked and to be able to workout outside in the warm June sun.
“In dealing with this who are undergoing great suffering, if you fee “burnout” settling in, if you feel demoralized and exhausted, it is best, for the sake of everyone, to withdraw and restore yourself. The point is to have a long term perspective.” Dalai Lama
