What a big change in a short amount of time?
I was planning to give weekly, or at least fortnightly blogs whilst studying, and I was about to start taking practice clients for the therapy I have been studying.
COVID-19 then hit, and quickly it looked like our personal training business was about to be flushed down the toilet in an instant.
All my focus needed to go there to do whatever possible to make the business work.
Initially, it might have been a bit of panic and a stretch to say, it would be flushed down the toilet, but I was in fear like a lot of others.
Day by day, the structure of the business had to change and eventually they closed all gyms.
There was the possibility to train people outdoors in groups, but it went against everything I stand for morally.
For me it’s about helping people with there health and not putting them at risk and with all honesty, I knew it wasn’t long before they changed that anyway.
It meant I had to help my business partner (fiancé) change the whole business over a week and then over night when the final government rulings came in.
There was a huge fear that we would go under- huge.
Thankfully in the past 10 days, we have been able to stay afloat with a lot of hard work and stress, while continuing to help people.
There were huge worries that this would set off my depression and anxiety. It did a tiny bit, but I held that together well.
It means- the blogs about what I learnt in hospital has been missed but I will pick that up now that things are seemingly going well and will survive, despite a big hit like a lot of others.
If you, like me and many others are struggling, please check out beyondblue who are doing a mountain of work with the mental health side of things through COVID-19.
Make sure you reach out and chat to friends and family and keep yourself vulnerable because that’s how we will all get through this.
Stay safe- be kind – be true
