At the time of writing this, my first blog post, people are trying to get their heads around a rapidly changing situation as the Coronavirus pandemic advances. Within a week working from home (WFH) is the new normal for those whose jobs make it feasible and everyone is talking about ‘social distancing’.
A lovely side effect of the crisis is that more and more people are sharing help and knowledge freely – whether it is in the form of getting shopping for vulnerable pensioners or giving access to training videos. This has made me think about what I could do to help whilst keeping myself safe enough (I have an underlying condition requiring social distancing as much as I can).
So I thought this would be a good time to share something small that might help pass the time and keep spirits high: illustrated affirmations as colouring in sheets! These sheets were made as part of ‘Self Love Surgery’, a collaboration between me and my friend Emina Rezdepovic (a fantastic woman) who has been running the Wicked Women’s Institute for a couple of years. We organised a pop up workshop with a big group colouring in session, a book corner, cupcakes and a special self-love booth involving a mirror and a pep talk track.
