Working Through A Pandemic
Adversity builds character, but it can also be very challenging; especially when considering a worldwide pandemic. Below are some helpful ways to minimize the stresses of social distancing, and the tension of developing a new normal.
Be sure to build a routine. Remember to stay consistent with your eating and sleeping patterns. Also stay active, and make time to exercise daily.
Be sure to not to overload yourself with information. It is OK to step away from your phone, live updates, and the media.
Practice social media self discipline.
Understand your fears and rationalize/Prepare and plan reasonably.
Think outside of yourself/Look at the big picture. One can alleviate stress in their life if you have the ability to help others and volunteer service.
Never feel guilty for your thoughts and fears. Stay openminded and optimistic
Seek support wisely. Too often we get caught in an echo chamber. Build perspective through multiple outlets of information.
Together we can all make a difference by social distancing.
