Finding some semblance of normalcy.
Accepting the new normal or finding some semblance of normalcy is definitely the way to go. Pretty sure most people could write a book on all the things they miss doing since the global pandemic. But what good would that do anybody? We would all just be clinging to the past instead of looking to the future. The positive thing to do is look ahead. Be forwarding thinking and find a new normal.
It is very doubtful that people expected this current global crisis to drag out this long at the onset of this pandemic. The contrary is more likely the case. For the first few months after this pandemic broke out, it was relatively easy for many people to get a new routine going. And stay motivated because of the belief that this situation would not last long. Most of us held on to the belief that this too shall pass much sooner than later.
However, the longer this has dragged on, coupled with many other personal factors. Such as a good number of people losing their source(s) of income, it has become more challenging to stay motivated. Of course, this is perfectly normal; these are trying times for many people.
The important thing is for people not to wait for this global pandemic to pass but to start thinking outside the box. It has even been suggested that the ‘box’ should be eliminated. People need to start thinking of alternative sources of income. New kinds of jobs they could enter into, especially in this technological age. Basically, people need to move or flow with the times they find themselves in, thus accepting the new normal. Do not wait for things to go back the way they were, for that may not happen the way you expect.
We all need to stay motivated and accept that this situation we are in is the new normal, at least for now. On the bright side, however, luckily, there is always a light at the end of every tunnel. This too shall pass, although not in the way a good number of people initially envisioned. This is so because things will not go back one hundred per cent to the way they were. Here are some great ideas on things to do when stuck indoors.
The world as we knew it before the global pandemic is hypothetically gone. Things will never go back to the way they were one hundred per cent. People will work differently, offices will be structured differently, people will begin, if not already doing so, to see the value in having multiple sources of income as no one knows what tomorrow shall bring. The hope is that people will begin to take better care of themselves. Eat healthier, exercise, get natural vitamin D daily, and get more in touch with mother nature.
Change your mindset and move with the times.
We all need to get on track, get our heads back in the game of life, so to speak. Get re-motivated and stay positive in accepting the new normal. Accepting the new normal does not mean that people should be docile, but rather, people should be proactive in finding solutions to current unfavourable situations.
Thus, finding new and safe ways to continue working, having fun, and living life to the fullest. We have limited precious time in this world and therefore have to make hay will the sunshine. It is, however, imperative that we maintain a positive mindset in the process and try to help those who are less fortunate than we are along the way. However, be mindful of the misconceptions about having a positive mindset. Being optimistic does not equate to weakness or being out of touch with reality.
The point is, we all have to move or keep up with times in which we find ourselves. Even when this pandemic is finally over, the world as we know it will not be the same as before the pandemic. And this is not necessarily a bad thing, depending on your perspective.
Changing one’s mindset or perspective on a given situation for one which is more desirable is the first step towards changing one’s behaviour for the better. This can also help make an uncomfortable situation, such as isolation for some people, more bearable.
