Trying to stay positive is challenging, especially after the past year has wired us to perceive everything as a threat. The cycle is difficult to break, especially when we’ve had our danger meter readjusted to just about everything!

After our last experience of lockdown, it has been a roller coaster of emotions. We’ve had our ups, but it’s been mostly downs where people have lost their jobs as well as family members all through isolation.

This virus has plagued us at great cost, and we are going to try and make sure that lockdown 2.0 doesn’t leave us in a pit of despair. Here’s how you can feel more positive during the lockdown.

Stay active

You’ve heard it so often, but going outside to take part in any activity is going to make you feel better! You can take your pick at doing anything as long as it’s outdoors and gets your heart rate up!

Although staying online can help you feel like you have something to do, it’s not always the best choice, especially for the long term. Take some time away from your phone, TV, or laptop and read a book or even talk to your neighbor over the wall.

Strive for imperfection

Trying to make something perfect and giving up when you can’t is the worst mindset you can have. You don’t want to end up missing out on great opportunities in life just because you’re scared something’s not perfect.

A healthy diet will give you all the nutrients and antioxidants you need! Refined sugars will leave you with an energy surge that drops until you get a sugar rush again, so you should switch to foods with complex sugars that are released slowly and won’t leave you sluggish.

Trying to create a balance of work and social life is challenging, especially when you no longer have a divide between the two because your home is now also your office. Make sure you’ve got your sleep hygiene down to the last point, so you’re getting the rest you deserve!

Practice gratitude

You should sit down at the end of the day, challenging or not, and list the things you’re grateful for. It’s going to help you shift your mindset from focusing on the negatives, and it’s going to make you cherish the important things in your life.

It’s not going to be easy, and there will be some days where you just don’t want to deal anymore. Forgive yourself for those days and strive for a better tomorrow when you do have the energy to the things you need to do to feel better!
