Mindset Reshift

The UK has been in lockdown for just over eight weeks and it has definitely given me the opportunity to pause for a moment and take a break from the busy and fast-paced life I live. I mean, when was the last time we really had ‘nothing’ to do? This really isn’t something I welcomed with open-arms, I insanely made sure that I was being productive around the clock from pre-work running, post-work workouts, blogging, cleaning my room etc. I even refreshed my First Aid training online!
