Welcome to our new normal. A time in our lives that we certainly did not see coming a year ago that most of us might not have chosen for ourselves; But here we are. As more and more bad news comes to us as we get away from each other, it is easy to reduce our motivation and waste energy, which is like worrying and fighting people on the internet Are not helpful
According to the Washington Post, nearly half of Americans report that the coronavirus crisis is harming their mental health. While many of us set up routines to deal with stress in the past, the stress we are experiencing in the meantime is unlike anything we have experienced before. It is easy to find yourself in a downward spiral, and this is the most challenging time to stop the motion and rotate things. If so, keep it simple and start by reaching for the small things so that you can feel better and climb your way.
Here’s a reminder of some simple things you can do from now on so that the positive momentum that comes in your way starts:
1. Find someone who was in the same place and did it on the other side
Whether you are untainted to workout, eat healthy, make a sales call or just do anything, you can find someone who has been there and done it the other way. Watch some great TED talks, go to YouTube and see people who inspire you, Google them to find your website. There are short speeches and long conversations on the Internet, you just need to find someone you relate to that speech.
2. Do Something You Love
When we are infatuated, it is easy to get out of the habit of doing what we love. Sometimes one feels suffocated just by getting up from bed or staying away from the TV. Come back to a time in your life when you feel great – what were you doing? You absolutely love to do that if you had time, you would do it all day and not feel that any time has passed at all?
Figure out a way to do whatever it is, or a modified version of it if it is something you are not able to do at the present time. Spending time doing what you love will make your mind do anything wrong and can inspire you.
“If something is important, even if there are heaps of odds against you, you should still do it.” – Elon Musk
3. Do not override it
keep it simple. When we are stuck in a waste, we will give ourselves every excuse not to do anything. Say that you have gained some weight; You can tell yourself that you need to find the right trainer and until you have time to cook your food from scratch the night before you do anything else. Stop trying to overcomplicate it and find one thing you can do right now, keep it simple, however small it may be. You will not have to wait until the time is right and the stars start moving in the direction you want to go.
4. Get up and go
This is probably the last thing you want to do now, but once you get up and walk, your blood will start bleeding. The hardest part is getting started. One day, get up and do anything to move forward. This is the hardest day if you haven’t come in a while because getting up is really the hardest part. Day two, do a little more. Once you start, you will build momentum and get back into the habit.
5. Reset Your Focus
It is so easy to worry that we can keep this in our mind that we do not wander in places that we cannot control. It is not persuasive or helpful and we always have the option to redirect our attention. There is always something that we can do correctly, so that we can focus our attention on the solution rather than the problem and figure out the next step of what you can do.
One step at a time. Step one, shift your focus from what you cannot control and what you cannot. Step two, “What can I do?” And see what comes to mind. Follow along with the answers you have discovered.
6. Listen to your favorite music
Not much can lift our spirits and make us vibrate more positively than our favorite music. Feel free to sing along. Find a song that pumps you up and makes that your theme song. At any time you feel down or unmotivated.
7. Expand your knowledge
“In times of change, the learners will acquire the earth, while the learned person is beautifully equipped to deal with a world that has no existence.” Quote by Eric Hofer. In times of change, there is great loss, but also great opportunities. Continuous learning opens you up to new opportunities and leads you to paths you might not otherwise get.
“Take someone away from you like there’s someone working twenty-four hours a day.” – Mark cuban
If you are already a meditator and got away with it, take some time to come back. If you have never tried it, it can be as easy as setting the timer for five minutes (or less, feeling free to start with one or two minutes) and focusing on your breath. Listen to breathe and exhale. Silently say yourself as “you” and you exhale. Even taking a few minutes to do this can help you calm down and allow your mind to calm down.
When we are infatuated, our speed starts increasing in the other direction. Slow down that pace by trying one of the ideas above. Once you slow down the speed, move it in the right direction and you will be well on your way.
