Coping, Keeping Calm, And Being Hopeful During the Pandemic
Many people lose their cool at the onset of the pandemic. Many even develop panic and anxiety attacks during the early surge of the pandemic. But not that everything has been slowly getting back to the normal way, many still suffer and are having a hard time coping with the changes that are happening.
Even with the slow pace of turning back to the new normal, many are still hesitant to find their old ways and going back to it because they are mostly paralysed by fear and anxiety of what they feel as the unknown. So, for those who are still struggling, here are some ways to be well-coped, calm, and hopeful in this pandemic.
Stay Connected to Loved Ones
Communication is the key toward a healthy mindset, it follows that the more you talk with quality people especially your loved ones the lesser negativity in emotions you will ever feel. Talk to them on a daily basis because talking to other people keeps you feel positive because it acts like a shock absorber or an emotional outlet for many people.
With people you can depend on you will feel less worried and you will feel lighter whatever the situation may be. You can stay connected with them through chats, calls, or even through coffee breaks between works.
Plan for your Future
Never for second think that this pandemic will be the end of the world, or the end of your dreams, no! This is just a phase that we all must go through and as much as possible try to survive through. One way to keep our hopes up for the coming future is to plan.
Yes! We should plan for our goals, our next vacation, our projects, or things that we buy we should plan it, regardless of the state of the world we live in hope should be the last to die. One thing that you can do to hold on to this positivity is to buy 2022 calendars and give yourself this gift and also to your closest friends and plan out a trip or a date that you will be making with them for the year.
Control Your Emotions
Control your emotions and how you respond the news. Better yet, if the news is making you feel anxious then stay away from negative news, always keep your mind healthy and strong and never let any toxicity eat away the life that is in you.
Control your emotions even if everything around you keep falling apart. Always remember that this pandemic and this crisis is borne by many and not just you, so why should you suffer for something that you have no control over? Calm your emotions and keep your mind cultivated in peace and stability.
Develop a Healthy Habit
Develop a healthy hobby. It does not matter if it is a major task or a small art project, and it does not even matter if you profit form, it or not, so long as it keeps your mind focus and that you feel that what you are doing is meaningful and gives your life direction, so be it! Just do it anyway. Nobody has the right to belittle your small progress towards self-development and cultivating positive habits for yourself.
We must take hold and take control of ourselves whatever the situation may be, whether it is within or beyond our control, such as a pandemic, we have to learn to be still and control our emotions and our reactions to keep a healthy mindset.
