Reflections on lockdown – the challenges, supports and positives
While many of us are happy to return to the lives and loved ones we so missed during lockdown, some of us might be reflecting on the things we’re not quite ready to let go of.
Some of us might already be feeling the healthy habits and simple pleasures we fostered during lockdown, such as baking bread, slowing down, connecting more with loved ones, slipping away. We might see the things we had no choice but to abandon – such as hectic schedules and overspending, slowly creep back in.
At Mental Health Ireland, we are asking people to reflect before we forge ahead with life again. We want people to reflect on any positive outcomes of lockdown, the things that we might not want to leave behind. We also wanted to know who or what helped you through the tougher times of the last few months.
