Why Lockdown is so hard

Sep 28, 2020 | Uncategorized

It seems that the lockdown period is coming to end in the next  three weeks for the UK at least. 

Having spoken to friends and colleagues, one thing for sure it has been a difficult time for majority, with lots of people experiencing a rollercoaster of emotions.

I am very positive  person. At the start of the lockdown, I was was optimistic that since I already worked from home, I would survive well. On the one hand though I was glad I had the option to go out once a day and took the option enthusitically at first. I set exercise goals and and went out for my walks to achieve them. I felt that the slow pace of life and pause on going full on on activities, meant that i would just coast through. However 3 weeks in and things began to change

For a full, week I felt very low and afterwards took time top reflect on what trigggered this change of emotions

Here is my take on it 

First let’s start with the psychology of the word lockdown

the confining of prisoners to their cells, typically in order to regain control during a riot.

a state of isolation or restricted access instituted as a security measure.

a situation in which people are not allowed to enter or leave a building or area freelybecause of an emergency:

Emergency, death

Social conscious
More recently, social consciousness is linked to the collective self-awareness and experience of collectively shared social identity.[3] From this viewpoint, social consciousness denotes conscious awareness of being part of an interrelated community of others. The “we feeling” or the “sense of us” may be experienced in members of various cultures and social groups. By the experience of collectively shared social identity, individuals may experience social unity. Social consciousness may also stimulate working towards a common goal

Words that destroy
“Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble

Energy levels
Your ‘vibration’ is a fancy way of describing your overall state of being. Everything in the universe is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies. Even things that look solid are made up of vibrational energy fields at the quantum 

Energy flow is stagnated so our world is not being elevated at the moment. Also with the constant announcement of death tolls, the constant awareness is not that of breeding life b

To idolise is to admire someone too much. A twelve year-old might idolize a pop star, for example, wallpapering her bedroom with photos of him and screaming loudly throughout his concerts. You can idolize someone you’ve never met, like a famous actor, and you can also idolise a friend or family member. I am all for the claps for the NHS and it has been great to shpw gratitude for a service that use to be slammed and unappriected.  However, what happens when the idolisation and adulation ends?
