“Every new beginning, comes from some other beginnings end.”

– Seneca.

What are your thoughts about life after lockdown/restrictions? Do you feel optimistic and excited or perhaps a little pessimistic and even anxious? There may be a whole range of thoughts, feelings and emotions that you will experience in relation to the days that will follow the easing down of lockdowns and restrictions due to the pandemic.

I always suggest that we try to recall what would have been our ‘normal’, prior to these days of pandemic. What would we usually be thinking and feeling about this time of year? Here, in the UK, it is becoming springtime.

Simply noticing and appreciating the beauty of the process of seasonal change is a sign of optimism, in a world in which Covid-19 remains a part.

So, what would you like to focus on, that will have you feeling more optimism and more joy than the current state of things may trigger you to feel? The practice of positive thinking is a wonderful way to boost your energy, morale and scientists would also say your immune system, too.
