Stay...

In these trying and uncertain times it's understandable to become anxious and worried about what is going to happen.

 

Here are some tips that are helping me, and that I think can help you navigate through these rough waters.

 

1. Stay Present

 

Don't project into the future. None of us know what tomorrow holds. Keep bringing yourself back to the present and ask yourself, What can I do right now? If nothing, try and relax. If there's something you can do, then do it.

 

2. Stay Busy

 

Don't sit in a chair or lie in bed letting your mind drive you crazy with worry. What are some things that you have been putting off that you can do today, tomorrow, or the next day?

 

Do you have hobbies that could occupy your time and relax you? Start doing those now.

Notice...
 
It's easy to let your thoughts run rampant. Especially in times of distress.
Notice all the thoughts you are having, notably the ones having to do with fear.
Ask yourself if what you're fearing has any validity to it. Is it just a thought about some unknown future?
Repeat the words, "I'm fine." If for some reason you're really not fine, then get the help you need. There is help out there.
Notice all the good things that are in your life. Perhaps you have a pet you love, a favorite book, soothing music you can listen to, people you can call, a favorite chair, a funny sitcom you can enjoy; a loved movie you can watch again.
Remind yourself that you will be OK. One way or another, things will resolve themselves. They always do.
