All over the world people find themselves traveling uncharted territory. Confusion and frustration seem widespread, but that does not mean you should let them stunt your personal growth.
Although times of uncertainty are trying, they can also teach us valuable lessons if we approach them with serenity and an open mind.
Difficult times make us more aware of discomfort, be it our own or that of other people. Use this increased awareness to perform acts of kindness whenever you can. If you feel discouragement or anxiety, think of a friend or acquaintance who may be experiencing similar circumstances and offer them the support you would like to receive. Giving is a powerful act, and it can remind yourself that you are strong enough to weather the storm.
Although it may seem difficult, this is a good time to be grateful. Think about the people you love and the things that bring you joy, and express your gratitude for having this wealth in your life. Gratitude can be soothing and comes with many benefits: Enhances positive emotions, makes you stronger mentally, helps relish good experiences, improves physical health, and helps deal with adversity and build strong relationships.
Let Things Be
This is an exceptional opportunity to learn to let things be. If there is a lesson to be drawn from this experience is that sometimes there is wisdom in standing still. Do all you can, but learn to recognize the moment when it is reasonable to stop worrying. When we learn to let things be, we cultivate peace of mind, and that is a priceless gift.
Take Care of Yourself
Caught in a whirlwind of thoughts, it is easy to neglect ourselves and our needs. Think of ways to find nurturance and comfort. Cultivate the aspects of your personality most precious to you, and do not forget that sensory experiences can help you regain your balance. Meditate or simply enjoy silence, go outside and enjoy the sun, listen to the birds, enjoy the beauty of spring as the flowers blossom or just take a shower and take it in. If done mindfully, any activity can have transformative effects.
Times of uncertainty are an excellent chance to learn to be more resilient. Mental fluidity and the ability to deal with negative thoughts are two of the most important components of resiliency. Accept that circumstances may change, and avoid getting entangled in the net of anxiety. By practicing these skills, your resolve will strengthen as you become more flexible.
We Are One
Moments of common struggle bring into focus the collective nature of mankind. It has never been more evident that we are one, and that taking care of the people near you means taking care of the entire world. We depend on each other, and it is only by working together that we can manage through difficult times.
