1.) Be Creative with Family and Friends
It’s safe to say that we live in some very trying and stressful times. In this blog we’ll discuss how to avoid being stressed during these hard times of the pandemic.
The Coronavirus has dramatically changed our world, and impacted the physical and emotional well-being of billions.
Learning how to relieve stress during COVID-19 is one of the most important ways you can improve your daily life and channel the emotional pressures that come with this difficult time in our history.
2) Offer Help to Family and Friends
One of the best ways to alleviate Coronavirus related pressures is to connect with those you truly care about.
Oftentimes, day-to-day routines lead to a detachment from family or loved ones. Typically, someone will stop calling one day, and then a demand for the other party’s reciprocation will form, leading to a broken line of communication.
We advise you try (it’s not always easy) to move past that.
A great way to do this is to remember a common interest or passion, and attempt to re-engage that person about that subject.
Know someone know loves gardening? Why not ask them about how their projects are going?
Know someone who likes to cook? Why not ask them about their new air fryer?
It may seem tough to make the first step, but it’s important to think about what they may be experiencing as well. The psychological impact of COVID-19 has been devastating, and many have unfortunately become less social.
All it takes is one message: a text, voicemail, email, or anything else.
Making an effort to help those that mean a lot to you through these times is very rewarding
3.) Focus on Art and Creativity
Another fantastic way to avoid stress during COVID-19 is to focus on artistic and creative endeavors.
Learning to play an instrument, sing, draw, paint, or anything else is the perfect way to take your mind off of the current state of the world.
This leads to a better perception of day-to-day life, since you’ve determined that you’re not let the Coronavirus dampen your spirits. You’ve made this determination in advance by choosing to engage with creative expression.
By doing this, you’re expanding upon the natural desire to create.
This keeps your mental faculties in top shape, which is a phenomenal way to avoid fatigue or stress, since your mind is consistently being tested.
4.) Stay Physically Active and Avoid Laziness
Physical activity is a general rule for a healthy and fulfilling life, but comes as a particularly helpful stress reliever during these trying times.
If you’re feeling stressed, consider a treadmill run or a gym session (if your gym is open) to alleviate some anxiety!
On top of that, like our second point on this list, you’ll continue to improve at something.
Just like honing art skills or music skills, honing physical ability and strength is a great way to make progress towards your goals and avoid stagnation.
A solid workout regimen and healthy diet should result in 10-15 pounds of pure muscle in a year, while simultaneously reducing fat.
Wouldn’t that be an amazing thing to accomplish?
5.) Practice Mindfulness and Creative Visualization
Above all, the absolute most important way to turn these stressful times into a positive experience is to engage in mindfulness.
According to the dictionary, mindfulness means, “the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something.”
In reality, it’s a lot more than that.
Being in control of your mind is the most powerful way to take control of your own life.
Through the process of creative visualization, you can confront your hopes, dreams, anxieties, and everything in between. By using the Law of Attraction, you’ll overtime learn to attract positive and encouraging feelings. At the same time, you’ll repel your sources of stress and avoid letting those feelings take hold.
It all boils down to creating a vision, and bringing that vision to life.
