There is so much we cannot control about coronavirus and all that it has impacted, how can we find any ability to experience some peace and calm? Studies show that our central nervous system reacts positively when we are able to exert control over our lives and our circumstances and it reacts negatively when we feel out of control.
Some ways to control aspects of your life now:
- Decide how you will spend each day and plan your week
- Plan some time alone several times each week to do something for yourself
- Decide who to socialize with by phone or video and make plans for social dates
- Create a plan to get outside for specific amounts of time each day or each week
