Stepping away from the hectic pace of our daily lives and being forced to slow down has, in many ways, been a blessing for my family. We’ve learnt how to appreciate the simple things like baking together, sharing meals around the table, and the joy of doing nothing! Stress and anxiety are at an all time high for obvious reasons, but they’re being juxtaposed by a new, slow reality that is forcing us to reevaluate our priorities. I look forward to navigating our way out of this lockdown and I wonder what new skills I’ll take with me and which old ways will creep back into my lifestyle. One thing is for sure, I’ve never felt closer or more in tune with my family, and I hope I can hold on to that!
