During the Coronavirus pandemic, it’s safe to say almost everything has seemed rather uncertain. It’s not a particularly nice feeling, so here are a few tips to help deal with uncertainty.
Keep a journal to document your journey
Keeping a journal can be very helpful, especially for your mental health. A lot of people benefit from writing down their thoughts, feelings and dreams, amongst other things. So give it a try you never know it might be the right thing for you.
Plan ahead to reduce worry
Planning ahead is key. How much time do you spend worrying about what the future holds? Well, to ease the pressure a little bit, why not plan ahead? This way, you are likely to face fewer surprises and inconveniences on the road.
Focus on what you can control
How much time do we waste fussing over things that we can’t even control? Furthermore, it’s not logical.
All we can do is focus on those things which we can control, and although we may have heard this time and time again – it’s true, and needs to be addressed, particularly at a time such as this.
Find something to lean on such as your faith or beliefs
For me, it’s scriptures in the Bible that have gotten me through some of the darkest and most difficult points in my life. What do you have that you know you can lean on? Is it your faith? Is it your belief that no matter what things will work out in the end? Have a think.
Healthy body = healthy mind : Exercise
Exercise might just be one of the most effective ways to deal with feelings of uncertainty. That rushing feeling of endorphins racing through your system is enough to snap you right out of it. So give it a go, whether you’re hitting the gym or hitting the courts – make sure you get some exercise.
