One thing that everyone overlooks (including me)

Natural Sunlight

It’s been a while since I wrote to you.
I hope every one is hanging in there in these strange times.

Today’s post was inspired by my own experience and also speaking with many of my clients.
We are all affected by working from home in different ways, however one thing is common for us all.
That is how our body works and how our internal clock is wired to keep us optimized throughout the day.

I am really fortunate because I’m able to carry on working and that also gives me a daily structure. However, with all the busyness and my ability to push through, it comes with a price.
That is depression, anxiety and frustration.

I felt the calling to share my experience after speaking several clients.

The beginning of lockdown I felt my anxiety level is going up a bit regardless of my daily exercises.
When I started to put the pieces together and I realized that I had not been out of the house for 3 days. So the first thing I did was I went for a walk.

The change?
Instant relief.
Feeling lighter and calmer.

I wanted to share this with you all because if many of us have affected by this then I’m sure it could be useful for all of you.

Another thing I shared with my clients this morning that our circadian rhythm is a constant cycle of small activities that happens within the body. One of them is recognizing natural sunlight which triggers wakefulness in the body. This has an affect on what happens later the day and how we’re able to wind down in the evening and recover during the night.

Whenever you can, go outside first thing in the morning to breathe consciously for a few minutes and get exposed by the natural light to kickstart that process.
