In these times of isolation, finding areas of interest in our lives to ground us is extremely important. Being forcibly locked indoors, especially if you are alone, can make the world seem like a barren wasteland.
Silence as they say, can itself be deafening.
I have been fortunate in my life to develop many hobbies and interests over the years, but even then it is difficult for me to find the energy to do things during my self isolation. It is important to remember that no matter how much you love something, no matter how interesting it is, if you don’t exert the energy to grow that interest then it will stagnate.
Now, in the midst of all this strange chaos due to the corona virus, it is imperative that we take a more active part in forcing ourselves to do the things we find interesting, to learn new skills, train harder, explore new movement possibilities, and simply push ourselves to expand.
It is really easy to just use these troubled times as an excuse to laze around and give in to the worst sides of ourselves.
We can do better.
It is never too late, or too difficult, to create a better version of ourselves.
