This lockdown seems like it is so much harder than previous ones. What can I do to keep it together during these uncertain times?
Let me start by saying keeping it together isn’t holding it in or bottling it up. Connect with people who can help you find what will work for you. The minute you ask for help you have already taken a big step to keep it together.
The uncertainly of a public health emergency this time around is coming on the back of fires, floods and the usual personal disasters life can throw at us. All of that resulted in many people starting lockdown with less personal resources to draw on than last time – financial, social and physical. That’s the first reason I think this one is harder for many.
