6 Things You Can Do to Feel More in Control In These Strange Days – 093
In Episode 93 I’m going to share 6 things you can do to feel more in control in these strange days. I share some thoughts on what may be helpful to keep you feeling calm and sane and in control when things in the world feel pretty out of control.
One of the hardest things about the current state of things is that we have no idea about when it will be over. This global pandemic is certainly not managing our expectations of when we can go back to our normal lives….and even whether that will happen at all. No one is really sure what the world might look like on the other side of this.
While we do our best to take it one day at a time in the thick of these strange times, remember that there are plenty of small actionable things that you can do to bring more routine to your day to help build some sense of stability and allow you to feel more in control.
Jenny and I talk regularly about creating new habits and how our habits ultimately create our lives. I want to be clear that now is not the time to put pressure on yourself to get your habits in order and to be a better version of yourself. Your personal best right now may look very different than when things are “normal” and that is totally ok……but we do know that when things are uncertain, your habits can ground you.
So going back to some of your daily routines and habits may help you to feel more in control and I want to offer some small actionable ideas that you can put into practice today so that you can feel as though things are more stable and more normal. So that you can feel more calm and more in control.
