COVID-19 has taken over the world in the most unexpected ways. Everyone all around the world is battling with this invisible enemy in their own ways. However, some proven steps that we may follow include staying at home, keep your distances and maintain your hygiene. Here are some examples of how you can maintain positive in order to make this challenging period a little lighter physically and emotionally.
1. Balance Social Media Consumption
Social media is the place to be among others. You are bound to receive updates on the pandemic locally or globally – but there is too much negativity surrounding it too. Try to balance out your social media intake by not taking your phone to bed or limit screen time – there’s an app for this too. 😉
2. Take Care Of Your Body
This is the biggest silver lining in this whole situation. We often neglect our self-care on a day-to-day basis due to our busy schedule. In this situation, we are free to redefine our work-life balance and reorganize all our pending workout routines restricted by traveling to and from office.
3. Connect With Others
We are all in this together believe it or not. Some of us are blessed to be stuck at home with friends and/or family but some are not. Check with your friends/family who is living alone. Initiate conversation or call in once in a while. It’s best to get and offer help where necessary.
4. Focus On Small Things
You might not realize this before, now you know small things can bring you happiness too. Don’t know where to start? You can start by asking yourself these few questions:
- What made you feel grateful?
- What praise and/or feedback did you receive?
- What experience gives you pleasure?
5. Build Resilience. Hard Times = Growth
This is the most common success factor every successful people will tell you – hard times will help you grow. This confusing time is difficult for everyone but almost always there’s a result in growth that shapes you to become a better colleague, friend, family or human being per se. You will always grow and this time it might be in an unexpected way.
6. Get Dreaming. Plan Your Next Adventure
Just because the world is on halt, does not mean your imagination and plans should have too. This is the time to plan your next big adventure – domestically or internationally. If you can dream it, you can do it!
So, have you done any of these in the last few months? Would you like to explore this on top of your routine? Let us stay positive and stay safe, together!
