The COVID-19 (corona) pandemic has created a truly unprecedented situation that affects us all. Our hearts go out to anyone who’s been impacted by the virus, either directly or indirectly. This time has been like no other in that we are forced to live, work, practice self-care, and connect from the same spaces and with the same fervor we would as if we're out in the world. Of all the scenarios we’re taught to prepare for: loss of income, fires, car accidents, floods, health risks, etc., a pandemic is last on that list if mentioned at all.
Despite the limitations, forcibly disconnecting from the physical world around us, quarantine has made space for us to reconnect with ourselves and rediscover our passions, desires, boundaries and the good they do for us. Setting our daily intentions is important now more than ever. Create a schedule outside of working business hours and use the time you would have been commuting to reengage with yourself and practice mindfulness. Consider the following practices: journaling, exercise, revisiting an old business or 5-year plan, goal setting, planning calls with loved ones, or one of my favorite self-care activities, mandala paintings. These activities also apply to time spent with your mentee. By reconnecting with ourselves, we inherently enrich the lives of our youth that much more.
