The “5 As” of responding to situation like Covid19 :

Acknowledge that Covid19  is real  and that it is having impact on yours and everyone’s life. Acknowledge that that you will have moments when you fall apart and feel that you don’t know how you can ever pick up and move forward again.

Accept  that your live has been changed  to some degree  in ways you did not  expect. Accept that there are certain thins which are beyond your control and you cannot do anything about them except to have a positive attitude and mindset.

Allow yourself to  take one day at a time as you adjust to the changes,  allow yourself time to feel fed up of being fed up, allow yourself to express the emotions you are experiencing at any given time. Allow yourself to seek help and not suffer in silence. Allow your self to have hope that things will get better and that this too shall pass away

Adapt to the changes .Most of us started this year making new year’s resolutions and a plan of things we want to achieve this year. Covid19 has forced us to stop, take stock of our lives and  rewrite our plan based on an uncertain future.   Though it can be challenging to adapt to this situation which is beyond our control, it is important that we don’t suffer in silence but to seek help, connect with other people so that we can share experiences and support each other.

Ask for help this can be from your family and friends or contacting the many organisations which are providing a lot of free online and telephone.

How to use your imagination to escape to Happiness Island and feel good #Escape2HappinessIsland

Right now, a lot of us are going through challenging times because of the situation we find ourselves

Over the years, I have learnt to use my imagination to escape from the stresses and challenges of life  and go to  my happiness Island.

Tips to ease financial burden

The longer this lockdown goes on the bigger impact it has on our finances💷. I feel it is important to look at your family finances. To take stock and check if you are paying for things you no longer need. It is vital to look at your direct debits.

Here are some financial help out and may help ease the financial burden

SALARY/WAGES

Many people have been furloughed to avoid redundancy- with the government picking 80% of your wage – this will kick in from this Monday.

If you can’t get furloughed for whatever reason, you may qualify for Universal Tax Credit – however, if you have savings of more than £15,000 you may not qualify. https://www.gov.uk/universal-credit/how-to-claim

BANKS –

Lots of banks are now offering free arranged overdrafts on the first £350 or £500. This is applied automatically to your bank account. You don’t need to do anything. https://moneyfacts.co.uk/news/banking/how-is-your-bank-helping-customers-impacted-by-the-coronavirus-pandemic/

Contactless transactions have been increased from £30.00 to £45.00.

MORTGAGE

3 months Payment holidays can be arranged with mortgage and credit card companies – you have to contact the company and apply. Do not just stop paying. Interest will be charged but it does not affect your credit rating. https://www.whatmortgage.co.uk/feature/brokers-view-mortgage-advice-covid-19-pandemic/

If your MOT is up for renewal – there is a six months extension.

COUNCIL TAX

All two-door buses will move to middle-door entry on Monday (20 April) – with the front of the vehicle roped off to protect drivers from contact with passengers.

Those travelling will not have to tap in with their Oyster or bank card, TfL has said.

GYM MEMBERSHIP

Don’t forget to freeze your gym membership and any other subscriptions. Contact your Sky if you have Sky sports and they will reduce your subscriptions.

Time to do a happy dance

Not even a last kiss #StayHomeSaveLives

I have written this because of the pain I felt reading of an elderly lady who lost her husband and I could just imagine the pain she must have felt.

She was all dressed up and sat down looking out of the window with tears in her eyes.

The road seemed so quiet with no one in sight.

She took a deep breath in and released a big cry “Oh God why did this have to happen”

Tears streaming down her face, if only she could have the last kiss

She looked outside again and she saw  two black magnificent horses driven by a man dressed all in black.

They stopped in front of her window and reality hit her – her beloved husband of 40 years was in the coffin draped in red with a single rose on top of it.

She blew out a kiss, she whispered “I love you, goodbye my love, till we meet again.” She watched and kept blowing kisses as the horses move on,

She sat down thinking that this is not how it should happen, her husband Jack had so many friends and family, yet only their two children where allowed to go to the service at the crematorium because of the coronavirus.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you if you are grieving at this moment  and finding  it hard to cope as you cannot even go and  say the final goodbye to your loved one.    I pray that you have the strength to take each day as it comes and my the wonderful memories and moments you shared comfort you.
