Cultivating inner resources in uncertain and stressful times from the comfort of your home
After many months of restrictions due to the pandemic we are now in a period of transition. While it is great to move towards normality, these transition times can be quite stressful. For many, the pandemic has been exhausting due to a decreased division between work and private life and the additional efforts the new situation required. Some are grieving the loss of loved ones or are suffering mental illness as a consequence of these difficult times. To others, the new freedom is a little frightening and they are still trying to figure out what feels safe.
According to WHO, the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a heavy toll on the mental health of millions of people with close to one billion people suffering from mental illness in the world. Depression, burnout and anxiety have almost doubled in 2020 compared to 2019.
It is therefore more important than ever to cultivate mental resources such as mindfulness, positivity and self-compassion – and learn how to ground yourself. Mindfulness is a combination of attitudes and skills that can help you live more in the present moment and be less overwhelmed by what life throws at you.
