Become self-aware of your emotions. Focus on the present moment. Connection
STEP 1 – Become self-aware of your emotions
You might be experiencing the following emotions:
- H-elp or Hope
Give yourself permission to feel, and embrace emotions. Journaling or talking to family or friends can help.
Also, for families taking the time each day to check in how is everyone feeling, where is each person in this moment? Normalizing that all emotions are part of the change curve.
STEP 2 – Focus on the present moment
- What can I do today with what is available to me TODAY?
- Breathe – when you are feel anxious take 3 long deep breaths
- What can you influence now? Focus on those concerns you can influence!
STEP 3 – Connection
Reach-out, isolation can be challenging, continue connecting or checking in with your your family, friends, or colleagues.
As Brene Brown mentions “We are hardwired to connect with others, it’s what gives purpose and meaning to our lives, and without it there is suffering”.
