Have you ever been quarantined before? How about grounded? Or just really sick and can’t leave your bed? How bad did it suck?
Well if you’re an Introvert it might not be that bad.
Introverts thrive away from the loud, hustle and bustle, fast everyday life that our society believes we must live. Many of us don’t enjoy parties or large crowds, some of us can handle it for a few hours but then need a lot of downtime afterward to recharge our inner battery.
So I wonder; how are Introverts doing with the quarantined? Are they thriving? Has anything really changed for them? I’ll answer some of those questions!
As an Introvert, in a way, I am thriving. My kids and husband are home all day every day with me. I love just being home with everyone. Even if we aren’t all sharing an activity, just being home makes me feel good.
Everyday life hasn’t changed for me! I work from home so other than the occasional run to get boba tea or Starbucks I haven’t needed to go anywhere! My husband has run all the errands so I’ve just been pretty much doing my day-to-day; chilling in my PJs, drinking my coffee, and doing my job. (I also started this blog!) Now that we have the official orders to “Stay in Place” I do feel an ounce of what these Extroverts might be feeling right now…claustrophobia. I feel the need to get in my car and go somewhere, even just to the ATM. I won’t, and can’t, but being inside suddenly has me feeling stuck.
Overall I think this could be a good thing for people. Although it’s a terrible situation to be in we will get through it and we have to follow the important steps put in place to protect those who are at risk. Try to find the benefits; more quality YOU time, more time with family at home, less force to do everything as fast as possible. Take the time to focus on your inner self, your well-being, and how you can reach happiness outside of the daily expectations we have.
