Lockdown: Hitting the Wall

I’m hitting the wall in terms of this marathon of lockdown.

It’s lonely, mentally exhausting and I’m starting to really worry about the impact it’s having on my kids’ mental health. Not having their freedom for such a long period of time, based on their perspective of time will have repercussions. And I just wonder if we are fast approaching the tipping point. It’s a tough day today. And I’m sharing because I suspect others may also be having a tough day and it’s better to have it together rather than alone – albeit virtually.
Sending much love and hoping you are all finding your way through this time, one day at a time.

NIK DAVIS is a business transformation expert and has spent 20 years in the corporate world. Her comfort zone is order, logic and applying analytical tools to solve complex problems. She is also a keen observer of life, a writer and eccentric. Nik has recently returned to the world of work after taking a career break to spend time with her family. Upon her return, she found that her perspective had changed, as had the world she was returning to. Nik decided to carve out a new place in that world and mould some of it to fit her too. Nik sees life from quirky angles, shaped by experiences and the vast amount of knowledge we now have access to. She likes to write about her experiences and observations. To ‘tell it how it is’ and to find a more authentic way to live, whether in our professional or personal lives. Nik often talks about finding ‘The Third Way’. It’s a philosophy about life, having a personal life as well as a career, making money and being socially generous, being logical and sensitive, living by the rules of a society but not being afraid to challenge them, inspiring others to feel good but not for your own ego, giving rather than taking. Nik wants to make a difference to this world by getting people to see things differently, to try new ways of working but most of all, to re-discover our true selves and therefore reach our true potential. Nik also has two other persona’s: nikdavis which is where Nik writes about her deeply personal experiences of life. Nik runs a facebook group alongside this website to create a safe place for people to discuss the topics that are raised in her blog. Nik’s second persona is Lilly Isabella and this is where she shares her passion of fashion and design.

  1. Welcome to the long list of those who would agree with you, but I am more concerned about what I take as emotion wise out of this short article Nik. Please know I will keep you in my prayers, and bless you., I am not sure how old your children are, and as stated in previous comments, kids are stronger than you think, and with the lead role of mom, showing strength, it will get better.

  2. Nik,
    You R NOT alone. Many share your thoughts. AND Feelings are neither right or wrong . They come and go just as our days do. It is only when we judge them that they become R or W.
    I feel a bit trapped at the moment too but what I find helps is to do my deep breathing if I get really stressed and just try and hang on to the good memories and get lost in a good book or movie to divert. It’s tough, I know but YOU WILL get through this. We have to!! And believe me any child that survives this will be a lot more adaptable and able to cope than they previously were. Children are stronger than we think!! ~ I think you’ve already done something many are not doing and that is you’ve shared and put it out there. That alone is therapeutic.
    I wish you a better day and I hope the sun comes out soon. Please know YOU are not alone!!
    Millions of other’s feel the same. They just aren’t brave enough to share. Lovingly, Loree xx
