Happy Monday to all you wonderful souls.
We made it to day 8 of #stayinghome. (Longer for me as I started earlier), we are entering our new normal and it is without a doubt filled with mixed emotions of anger, frustration, denial, boredom, being constantly hungry (or is that just me?) and fear. Craving the normality that once was.
The things that you once took for granted you grieve which is okay, but my dear friends let me kindly remind you that you are blessed to be safe and healthy and for those of you who can work are even more so. We are also safe in the comfort of our own homes, with our loved ones, with technology, with the internet, with free games for your kids, with an abundance of things to keep you occupied.
Key workers around the world are battling to mitigate the effects of the Coronavirus and fellow Resilience professionals are feeling the strains of this outbreak in their organisations. It takes it’s toll on a personal level too and in this time, it is so easy to fall into the negative mind trap and focus on what we cannot do , forgetting our own resilience. How do we become more aware of this?
One thing that has been helping me is gratitude. Let me introduce you to the Gratitude Jar
The Gratitude Jar
Gratitude is a powerful tool for resilience in the face of uncertainty
and now is the perfect time to start your gratitude jar. Me and the husband share one and we aim to write one thing a day, fold it up and on new years eve open up and remember all the amazing things that happened to us. Admitting that of late we haven’t been filling it with gratitude slips but today I am about to re-start- why not join me.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to stay connected to the world without leaving my home
What are you grateful for today?
