Freedom? What’s freedom you may ask? It’s one that we are all itching to understand clearly…
According to the latest news, the day that England goes back to ‘Normal’ (known as Freedom day) has been identified as Monday 19th July 2021.
However, circumstances may change if there is new guidance to be pushed out the the country by Boris Johnson (UK’s Prime Minister) before the expected day of the restrictions easing.

How do we prepare for this day?
As freedom day is just a day of the restrictions easing, there isn’t physically anything you need to do to prepare for this day. It’s like slicing a soft piece of cake, just relax and let the main part do all the work for you.
However, if you are wanting to do something to celebrate this day, then make sure you do it safely whatever that maybe.
Just remember that although the restrictions are easing more, we ALL still have a part to play in keeping ourselves and other safe from any future problems with regards to the Coronavirus pandemic.
I have been asked this question quite a lot whenever I engage in a conversation where I have mentioned that I have Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. My first thoughts was “it’s not too bad” or “it makes me feel lonely”.
However, when I contracted the virus not so long ago, I thought that I wasn’t going to make it out of my isolation period. It made me feel really negative about my future and that I didn’t have much hope in myself. When I finally started improving and was showing less symptoms than before, I had more energy to do the things I could do that I still wanted to continue with.
The reason for me telling you all this is to encourage anyone (even if you have Autism or not) to bear with the stress of having Covid-19. I know it’s not the most pleasant illness to have, but I do believe that if you take it easy and try not to fight the discomfort of the virus, you will hopefully feel better quicker.
Everyone is different in their own unique ways, so not always is it possible to feel better quicker than others have. But I can assure you that each day that passes during the pandemic, it’s just another day closer to freedom day (where there are no restrictions at all).
