Lockdown diaries

Lucille Sikosana

We’re in the third week of the lock down, I must say it hasn’t been easy but we’ve made it this far. I say hats off to all of us!

It goes without saying that most of us had to make a couple of adjustments with having to work from home. A couple of actions have involved, downloading the right software that keeps us connected with our colleagues and clients. I find that I am getting more work done since rush hour traffic is no longer a concern. I try to maintain a routine to lessen the impact of the lockdown on my work and client relationships.

I am also using this time to work on my IKIGAI which is a Japanese concept that means a reason for being, or simply put -my reason to get out of bed in the morning. I am hoping to have it complete by the time life returns to ‘normal’.

My house mates’ culinary skills have significantly improved and it looks like there’s an enjoyment and new found passion for cooking and even baking. I am certainly not complaining.

These weeks have also given me a new-found appreciation for life while I miss being outdoors simply to enjoy nature. I must confess though that I do miss playing golf and connecting in a physical way with other people over a cup of coffee or lunch. But as the good old saying goes “this too shall pass”. So, make the most of this time by tuning out of the habit of following the news 24-7 and making time to also tune into connecting with yourself and those you love.
