Welcome to Part 2 of my series on A Prepared Mind in the Time of Covid. In Part 1, I outlined my family bushido and how it has helped me during this pandemic. Today, I want to talk about various approaches that can help you stay calm and focused during these trying times. Each person will have their own approach to dealing with stress and anxiety, so it is important to find what works best for you. Stay safe and be sure to keep your mind prepared!
One approach that has helped me immensely is focusing on the present moment. It can be easy to get caught up in worry and anxiety about the future, but by living in the present, we can find peace and calm. This doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t plan for the future or be prepared for what may come, but it does mean that we should focus on the here and now.
Another approach that has been helpful for me is to think about what I am grateful for. In the midst of all this uncertainty, it can be easy to forget all the good in our lives. Focusing on gratitude helps us to remember that we have a lot to be thankful for, even in the midst of difficult times.
Lastly, I want to encourage you to find a support system. Whether it is friends, family, or a professional therapist, it is important to have people who you can rely on and who will understand what you are going through. These are just a few of the approaches that have helped me during this pandemic. Find what works best for you and stay safe!
I hope that these blog posts have been helpful in providing some perspective during these trying times. I encourage you to find what works best for you and your family and to be prepared for whatever may come. Stay safe and be sure to keep your mind prepared! Thanks for reading! Part three coming soon…
