We live in challenging times and in circumstances unlike any other time in history and it certainly looks and feels that way.
Yes, there have been pandemics before and loss of life however, the circumstances have not been so serious or so frightening or affected the way we live like this episode of Covid 19 ( coronavirus).
So what can we do to survive this challenge?
Just like the tree in the picture, finding a place to anchor ourselves against the elements and thrive is important.
What can you control?
Firstly, be kind to yourself and give yourself a bit of slack to respond and work your way through any problems that arise.
It’s new territory, so take your time. Work out what matters, what’s important AND let the rest GO!
As we come out of this period of uncertainty and loss of connections, it is important o focus on what matters.
It may well mean reevaluating what you now choose to take up doing and what you choose to let go as unimportant. keep doing the things that give you joy and let go of those things which do not.
If you need mental health help see your GP or health provider and look after yourself. get good quality sleep, eat healthy wholesome food and get some sunshine and exercise each day.
Start or keep your gratitude journal – write 3 things you’re grateful for each day and note how your wellness state improves over the next month.
