As we enter our first pandemic winter, many of the outlets we’ve turned to for relief, connection, and joy will become less accessible. Socially distanced meetups, outdoor exercise, open-air dining—it all becomes a little more complicated when the temperature drops.
The challenges are interconnected, and so are the solutions. When you take the necessary steps to support your well-being in your personal life, you’re also making an investment in yourself that helps you stay motivated and in-turn become more successful at work.
Here are 3 tips to help you fight off loneliness, find motivation, and prioritize your well-being despite the changing seasons ahead.
- Ask someone what they’re doing to take care of themselves and stay connected to loved ones.
- Start a group text with friends.
- Schedule a virtual coffee break or happy hour with friends.
Establish Habits That Keep You Motivated and Productive:
- Take control of how you think, how you feel, how you act. Positivity will help you make the choices that lead to accomplishment.
- Break goals into manageable tasks.
- Don’t divide your attention but give your full and undivided self to the task at hand.
Make Sure You’re Not Forsaking Self-Care:
- Find Community- Isolation can quickly erode mental health.
- Engage in mindful living- Mindfulness activities such as meditation, deep breathing and yoga have all been linked to elevated brain chemistry.
- Take daily break rituals- Carve out small chunks of time where you are focused on doing something that renews your mind, body and soul.
