So how can we ease into this new way of living? Here are some ways on how to push forward to the New Normal.
Allow yourself to grieve
Let yourself feel the discomfort and all the other emotions too.

Create a Journal of Your Experiences
Write down your experiences – be it your thoughts, feelings, anything under the sun! Record things that make you feel happy!
Find New Ways to Stay Connected
Because social distancing does not mean social disconnecting.
There are new and different ways to still connect with family and friends. You just have to be creative!
Create and find pockets of joy
Walked the dog today? Great!
It doesn’t have to be grand! No matter how simple it is, celebrate anything that naturally brings smile to your face!
Give Yourself Some Time Off
Take time for self-care and take things one at a time!
Remind yourself that we are still living in an uncertain time so give yourself some allowances and some time to break!
Stay informed but not Alarmed
Get information from reputable and reliable media sources rather than from opinion and views on social media
