learning

So, I had planned to write a post about my plans around my life and self-development, but now life has obviously changed with all my plans going right into the bin.

You may know that we had been planning to move abroad somewhere, but I had chosen the way to move only when I have a decent job in my bag – a decent job around my profession. And our future had been in a good shape as I had had an opportunity to start something, but the virus ended it. I hope it’s only postponed, but we’ll have to wait.

Make the best of it

I am a little bit disappointed but still, I think this quarantine can be a good opportunity for something, and it has to be, because otherwise you (or I) may go crazy during it. I think it’s gonna be a long one, which is bad enough, but you have to grab the good parts of it.

Wait, are there any good parts?

That’s for sure, believe me. I am with my family. Of course I need to work in home office, but those breaks between two meetings, the coffee breaks, the lunch breaks give you opportunities to be with them, eat with them and whatnot. You can even adjust your schedule: I decided to wake up at 6am (OK, it is only six-ish, I can’t always do that), but most of the time I do, and after waking up, I do some exercise, work an hour or so, then I am ready to be with them for a breakfast.

About the exercise. I downloaded an app to my watch, and every weekday morning I do an 18-minute workout. I started with a 12-minute one and I want to go up to 30. In the afternoon the family do a 12-minute workout together.

I can have a head-start, as I am sort of in a good well, slightly better shape. I started a veganish lifestyle at the beginning of the year, and I lost 5-6 kgs of weight, so I am now around 78 kgs. That’s a good base to start something with my fitness.

Being a father-of-two

I don’t think it was much different from┬áthe new feeling, but the knowledge that I would have three kids somehow did transform me. It is not that I had been a bad dad or anything like that – although I must admit I hadn’t been the best of the dads. So far.

I think the responsibility hit me in the head, right on my forehead.

I just somehow felt that I would need to do more in terms of connections, in terms of time spent with the girls, in terms of educating them, and most importantly, in terms of bringing them up to this world.

And that quietly changed everything.
