They say that its takes 21 days before you develop a habit. Maybe it is true.
I’ve started to embrace the new normal in our lives. Although there is a skeleton of a routine, I have shifted my gears to find joy in the little bits of achievement I make everyday. That one paragraph of the project proposal, that 1 webinar every 3 days (?), that 10 minute exercise which I manage to do all in between enjoying my time with these two funny monkeys.
It has lessened the pressure I put on myself to tick off so many things in my daily to-do-list… and has made me much happier.

If there is one word that can sum up this week, it’s HOME SCHOOL!
I am a quiet and private person. Not many people outside of my family know that I am a recently separated solo parent of two young children. The enhanced community quarantine had me close my private and hospital clinics. Although it has given me this much-needed time to be with my children, it has also impacted my financial capacity considerably. I alone support my small family plus our staff. As I continue to do my clinical work behind the scenes, I have also started to feel the strain of home schooling.
Initially, we started with just morning sit-down sessions and afternoon physical or creative activity sessions. However, the homework load has increased this week. I have my elder child work on his assignments almost the whole day everyday… And it’s not just him working on it. I have to read, understand and teach the lessons. Don’t get me wrong. I love my children, and there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for them… But I miss regular school!
