2020 for me has been entirely different from what I envisaged as I set goals for the year on New Year’s Day. Within a few months, COVID-19 changed the world as we knew it.
Life after COVID-19: A Guide to Transitioning Well was written for individuals and families to work through to help adjust to the changing lifestyle required by COVID-19, and for the desired future.
It is crucial in our moving forward that we identify and deal with any losses we have experienced from the sudden changes forced upon us. We are then in a healthy place as we look to the future.
As some restrictions start to be lifted, I am conscious that we could easily fall back into the same routine we had before. Even though we say we want to change various aspects of family life, unless we make a concerted effort, we can slip back into our old routines.
Just as it was a massive challenge for most people adapting to the isolation restrictions, it can be a considerable challenge navigating entering back into the hectic lifestyle we once had.
Life after COVID-19: A Guide to Transitioning Well attempts to address these challenges from a Christian viewpoint.
