I hope all are well here with us still being in this pandemic. Yes, we’ve all seen and heard the devastating impacts across our state and the world from the COVID-19 pandemic. We've also witnessed the positive stories of Georgia businesses all across the state pivoting their operations to support the health care industry and first responders; restaurants who are trying to maintain a business also donating food to feed school children as well as health care workers; and essential workers (mail carriers, delivery drivers, warehouse workers, grocery store employees) showing up day after day to make sure we all have what we need. I hope my short story is helpful for you, be kind , and help someone in need today my friends. Be safe, maintain social distancing. My pictures here were taken before the pandemic as a FYI.
Here are some tips that have helped me in difficult times and hopefully they can help you too:
- Surround yourself with loving people who bring out the best in you.
- Its good to do a little meditation, have it quiet for just 6 minutes, sit down or just relax with no music or TV on. Listen to your breathing, rest, relax, take longer than 6 minutes if you can. Its good for you.
- Smile in celebration of all the good in your life. Some folks may have it even harder than you.
- Have a positive accountability partner , either a spouse or if not married, a good friend.
- Limit negative media and entertainment, turn off that TV/radio. Take the dog out for a walk.
- Replace negative habits with more positive ones. Paint, draw, do an art quilt!
- Practice “flipping your key focus”. Think outside the box.
- Laugh more often! When that does not help tell yourself a joke, even if its not funny go ahead and SMILE!
- Keep to a regular schedule, when you get up, when you eat, when you walk. Call someone you know on the phone that you have not talked too for a while. Even if its a government official. Remember to stay positive.
