When the times are dark and the situation helpless, people will encourage you to go on
and on, by saying ‘There is a light at the end of the tunnel’. But are we really able to see that
Our brain tricks us to focus on negativity or negative situations. This tunnel represents the
Dark path which we have to walk through relentlessly to be able to reach the light which
represents a new life or new beginnings, a solution to every problem.
Today, while all of us are trying to overcome this pandemic together, we lose focus and with
every new data coming in our fear and anxiety builds up. While most of us know that we
have little or no control over the situation, yet invariably we get consumed by our ‘Fear of
Unknown.’ How do you sail through this pandemic? How do you keep focus on the ‘Light at
the end of the Tunnel?’ It is apparent that we have to seek within ourselves and find the
strength to combat not just the physical environment but also our mental health.
1. Be Kind – To Yourself and Others
We all are in this together. If you feel angry, anxious, nervous or any other negative feeling,
recognise it. Allow yourself to acknowledge your negative feelings and then gently and
gradually direct them towards positive emotions by asking yourself “What’s the worst that
can happen? Can you handle it?”
2. Micro Manage Your Feelings
It’s always better to vent out your emotions in a safe and a controlled environment. A healthy
conversation with family, friends, life coach or a therapist would help. Writing down of
positive emotions in a journal, yoga and meditation on a daily basis can work wonders.
3. Keep Physical Not Social Distance
In the current situation that we are in, we are required to keep social distance, but there is no
reason that we can’t connect with people we love or enjoy being with. Plan some fun online
activities withfriends and family and connect. We, human beings are social animals.
4. Lower Your Expectations
Feel confident and in control of your life. Start with planning goals that are short term and
achievable. Be kind to yourself and be realistic. Take stock of the situation in totality, things
you can control and things you cannot control. Create realistic goals that you know you can
achieve in a short period of time.
5. Make the Best of The Situation
We as Humans are ever evolving. If we free ourselves from all the binds stopping us, we
can adapt to any given situation. Today’s day and age calls us to reach our full
potential in adapting and living our ‘Best Life’ Do what you always wanted to do and
start making each day count by living in the positivity!
