1. I can watch a couple of movies, or have a cup of tea without jumping up to run some errand or another without feeling guilty.
2. I look forward to the fact that we're no longer tied to a 5/2 day work/weekend ratio. We've got the chance to create a new balance.
3. Having time to ourselves in the house is ok - being comfortable with quiet time and alone time is necessary (especially considering how much together time we have ahead of us!) We normally don't have time for it as we're all so 'busy'.
4. Walking, running or a bike ride outside is the best form of exercise now rather than the gym. The fresh air has to be more beneficial for health in the long term too.
5. Having more time on my hands allows me to concentrate on important work projects (like planning more retreats for the end of this year and for 2021) and spending more time working on my personal and professional training online and reading.
6. I get to set my own timetable as there isn't anyone else's to follow anymore!
7. I can learn from my kids about communication and education all being online. I thought I understood it, and that they are still missing the human connection, but perhaps I've got it wrong. Maybe, maybe not?
8. This period of uncertainty may teach me to be less wasteful with food and more creative using up what I have in the fridge rather than running to the store at the last minute. Thats bound to save some cash too!
9. Our calendars were cleared almost overnight - isn't that just a tiny bit of a relief?
10. Maybe this also allows everybody to catch up on some much needed sleep!
