What Has Quarantine Taught You?
“You never change your life until you step out of your comfort zone; change begins at the end of your comfort zone.” ― Roy T. Bennett
What Kind Of Person Are You?
These past several months many of us have been working and living at home basically full-time. The people we spend our time with (co-workers, classmates and friends) have a huge impact on our thoughts and actions. Both positivity and negativity are very contagious after all.
Again, now that most of us have been spending the vast majority of our days alone, we’ve been forced to figure out what really makes us tick.
Self-reflection isn’t always easy and can often be confusing.
A great activity is the “I am someone who…” exercise.
It’s easy! All you have to do is finish the sentence “I someone who…”
Remember, this activity is for you and only you. Take all the time you need and be authentic. Sometimes our thoughts and ideas can get lost – exactly why writing them down on paper can be so helpful. It also makes it easier to look back and on them and see how much you’ve thrived.
How Do You Practice Self-Care?
We all have our own recharge style. Some of us need a long conversation with a friend, while others need some alone time.
Take some to think about what activities have boosted your mood and which have not these past few months.
Self-care is more about relaxing, sleeping well, and eating right; it’s also about doing what makes you happy!
Taking care of ourselves is just as important as taking care of others.
How Do You Remain Calm In Frustrating Situations?
Some of us are naturally more patient than others. But the good news is, patience is very learnable. You just have to want it!
Patience is all about being calm in frustrating situations and changing your mindset.
Quarantine has completely transformed our typical day to day routines and our overall lifestyle.
You may not have all the answers right now. You just have to remind yourself that you are doing the best you can with the resources you have.
