How to Thrive in Uncertain Times

Even just casually glancing at headlines you will be able to see that we’re living in uncertain times right now. While we can’t change our current circumstance, we can manage ourselves and our responses to it.

 

Watch the video below to hear Dr. Rob talk about tools you can use to thrive and take control in these times of change.

 

 

Here is a breakdown of the 3 things you can use to help you survive during this pandemic:

1. Make and Set a Schedule
Setting a schedule can help increase the likelihood that you’ll get what you need to get done. A schedule can also help you prioritize things you find more important. If you schedule and prioritize physical activity, quality time with family (in person or via face-time/phone call), or work projects, you’re more likely to get those things done. You might even surprise yourself by getting more done in a shorter time than you anticipated!

 

2. Get Outside
There’s nothing quite like experiencing nature. We’ve talked about the benefits of it in a previous 2 Minute Tip that you can find here. Going for a walk around your neighbourhood or driving to a local trail are great ways to get out of the house and stay active. The best time to get outside is in the morning, it can help reset your circadian rhythms and is a great way to start your day.

With the weather turning nicer it’s an even better excuse to get out and enjoy the fresh air while getting some Vitamin D. Don’t forget to practice physical distancing during your walks to keep yourself and others safe. If you live in an apartment or condo building consider using a tissue or barrier to open common doors or elevators and make sure to wash your hands!

 

3. Go on a Diet
A news diet that is! It’s easy to get sucked into the 24 hour news cycle and to go into information overload. Try limiting yourself to one or two news breaks per day to prevent yourself from falling down a rabbit hole.

You also want to make sure that where you’re going for your news is a credible source. Websites like the CDC and Public Health Canada are reliable sources to find out credible and up to date information about COVID-19.
