In the midst of the second wave of COVID-19 during the fall and winter months, many are having a hard time staying positive and hopeful when faced with the uncertainties of the future. During, what for many is usually a very happy holiday season, this year’s festivities have been either altered or put off entirely, further leading to feelings of hopelessness and loneliness. Thrive Global, which is a site that focuses on “people’s mental resilience, health, and productivity”, recently published an article on what their community is doing to stay optimistic and resilient during these challenging times. Here are some of their key takeaways…

Go Day by Day

Instead of future projecting, take each day as it comes and focus on what is right in front of you. With so much uncertainty around job security, social lives, and just day-to-day living, try your best to stay in the present moment and let go of the things you can’t control. There is only so much within your control, so focus and deal with things as they come, and not as you fear.

Spend Time in Nature

A member of the Thrive Global community also recommended time in nature and we couldn’t agree more. In fact, many may already be aware, but there is a Japanese practice called “Forest Bathing” which is where you mindfully immerse yourself in nature which is said to have a profound impact on your physical, mental, and emotional health. Time in nature is calming and grounding and can offer a mini escape for those who are spending a lot more time indoors this year.

Practice Gratitude
We’ve spoken on our blog about gratitude before, and it was another key factor referenced in the article. While this is undoubtedly a very challenging time in most people’s lives, focusing on what you do have and being grateful for all the good in your life, can help you shift your mindset to be more positive.

Try Something New
It can be helpful to think about starting a new project or regime during this time and breaking the monotony of quarantine life. Perhaps there was a hobby you always wanted to take up, a home project you’ve long needed to finish, or adopting a healthier and more active lifestyle. Don’t wait until January 1st to begin your New Year’s Resolutions, now is the perfect time to work towards bettering yourself and taking charge of something positive in your life.

It is difficult to spend time around nature when you don't have a means of transportation, public transport is full of people and at a walk length you have a public park which is, again, full of people.
