Managing the Stress of Being a Working Parent During Coronavirus
We’ve just passed four weeks of the Coronavirus lockdown at my house (we live just outside of Boston) with no clear end in sight. As a working parent, my once defined role has become a smattering of roles I never signed up for – teacher, chef, daycare worker – all while trying to launch and lead my new business, Alta Goods.
To say this has been stressful, would be an understatement!
Thankfully, I know I’m not alone. Stories of working parents juggling their busy homes, children, and challenging careers during the Coronavirus quarantine abound. Personally, I’ve found a few changes to my daily routine have helped me make this new reality a little easier.
Being a working parent has never been a walk in the park, but being a working parent while locked down during a global pandemic has turned this walk into an uphill marathon.
I’d love to hear what new habits or rituals you’ve created to maintain your sanity as a working parent during Coronavirus. Leave a comment – and bonus points if you make me laugh!
