Are You Ready for Life after Lockdown in Kent?

Are You Ready for Life after Lockdown in Kent?

In this two-minute read, we look at how to get ready
for the changes that lie ahead as restrictions continue to ease.

the end to our arduous Covid hibernation in sight, it’s time to prepare for
life in the “new normal”.

the prospect of restrictions easing is exciting – we can’t wait to eat at The
Butchers Block
and drink at The Freemasons Arms
it will also take a little getting used to.

because many of us have grown used to lockdown living: we now work from home,
live in tracksuit bottoms, and tell ourselves that cutting our own hair is a
good idea.

after a year of adapting to a host of unfortunate circumstances, it’s time to
adapt again – only for happier reasons. Here are a few ways to prepare for life
after lockdown.

clean your wardrobe

you’ve spent the past year in leggings, jeggings, slankets, and onesies –
anything with a forgiving waistline basically – now is the time to dig out your
“good” clothes. Try them on and decide if you still like them and if they still
fit you. Donate unwanted items to a charity shop and make any necessary
purchases. You don’t have to ditch all your comfy stuff, but you will need a
few pieces that will look smart in a work meeting or at a catch-up with

your fitness routine

people kicked off the first lockdown in 2020 with a flurry of physical activity
that tapered off as the pandemic dragged on and on. They’re now –
understandably as it’s been a tough year – carrying a few extra pounds. If you
want to shift a little weight, take your time. Start slowly and progress
steadily to avoid injury. Also, focus on activities that you enjoy – they will
be good for your mental health, and you’re more likely to continue with them
long term.


may seem that with lockdown lifting, all our troubles will be over. But it’s
important to be realistic with our expectations. Some of the activities that
we’ve avoided over the past year such as long commutes, mingling at parties,
making small talk in the work canteen – may make a return and prove stressful.
If things you once took for granted now feel challenging, don’t give yourself a
hard time. Talk to someone about it (lots of people will be in the same boat),
and remember that we’re still navigating our way through a deadly pandemic. Be
kind to other people – and yourself.

care and stay cheerful.
