Some tips on getting through lockdown...

I had the pleasure of chatting Carina as part of the Working Mumma Community about some tips on getting through lockdowns. 

Some of the take-aways from our discussion:

  • Never underestimate how the little things can have a big impact - giving someone a call, saying hello, playing a game with your children 
  • There are natural emotions that you go through with any major change, as demonstrated in the Kubler Ross change curve. The tip is to recognise your emotions and those around you, so that you minimise the amount of time in the 'depressions' stage
