The pandemic came into all of our lives and gave us an additional source of constant stress that loomed large for years and still continues to give us pause.
I was reading a book the other day and when it started to get to a part where it got suspenseful and dramatic, I put it down and decided that it would get back to it another time.
When I came back to it day later, I realized that I’d prefer not to add that extra bit of stress at this particular moment — I’d much rather read something engaging that is positive and upbeat instead.
It is interesting how life in recent times has generated a consistent level of stress and not-so-positive surprises in a way that wasn’t always the case.
I wonder if this has made us all more resilient and open to change as a world population or more prone to seeking out the familiar and comforting..I know we may all be taking the time to figure it out..
Has your response to everyday things changed over the past two years? Do you gravitate more toward what is comforting and feels uplifting and positive or do you feel you’re back to old routines and looking forward to what’s new and exciting around the corner?
