Bear with cub

My first hike after two months of quarantine was sheer bliss with babbling brooks, bursts of wildflowers and—bears! So grateful to be outdoors enjoying my favorite activity, I stopped to take in the view when another hiker pointed to a mama bear and her baby cub in the meadow below. If I had not taken the time to slow down, I would have missed the best part of my hike!

COVID recovery includes creating a plan for how we want to move forward, in other words, strategize. A good place to start is to reflect on all we are learning. Here is my list of 10:

10 Things I Learned During COVID:

  1. When I slow down, I see, feel, and experience more
  2. I enjoy cooking and cleaning when I make more time for them
  3. I can survive 12 weeks without a haircut, pedicure or latte
  4. I miss seeing and celebrating my family
  5. I do not miss the endless errands I thought were so important
  6. I miss meeting with my clients onsite
  7. I do not miss crowded airplanes and long security lines
  8. I enjoy reading more and watching TV less
  9. My weekends are best spent completely unplugged
  10. I like my husband even more than I thought

How about you? What are you learning about yourself and your life that can help you strategize to move forward? I would love to hear a few things on your list!
