Canberra Mums Staying Sane List

Ken Berans Lockdown Sanity

With many mum and bub activities cancelled, I know some are on the fence with what they should be doing.  Balancing the feeling and urge to be out and about with the safety of staying at home.

If you don’t have the symptoms, are healthy and practice self-distancing and good hygiene then refreshing social media, eating unhealthy snacks and/or listening to crying or yelling (the children not us) isn’t the best option.

Discussing what you CAN do during last month’s mother’s support group, I found the activities and options such a maze. 

Before you end up lockdown overload remember to:

  • Stay in routine
  • Write out a list – or write a journal (whatever keeps you on track)
  • Focus on what’s in your control and what you can influence
  • Reframe this time as an opportunity (to connect, do things you’ve put off etc)
  • Be where your feet are
  • Disinfect and distance
  • Be kind – you are modelling behaviour for your children
