Building Resilience During This Global Pandemic

There is no doubt that we are all in a vulnerable time due to the global pandemic the world is experiencing now. Also, there are personal traumas that people are also dealing with, such as the loss of a loved one, declining health, unemployment, divorce, violent crime, or tragic accidents. Most of us are struggling. While there is no way to avoid adversity or distress in life, there are ways to help us to regain a sense of control. Resilience is the ability to cope with the loss, change, and trauma that have been inevitable parts of life even before these extraordinary times. Building resilience can help you better adapt to life-changing events, cope with turbulent times, and bounce back from hardship and tragedy.

Below are tips to building resilience during this vulnerable time.

 A.     Invest in self-care: One thing that can drain you physically and mentally, is living through difficult and tough times. This if not attended to, can cause serious health problems, impact your immune and digestive systems, increase your risk of heart attack and stroke, and lead to burnout, a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion.Since the body and mind are so closely linked, investing in self-care is an important part of building resilience and getting through times of great stress. When your body feels strong and healthy so, too, will your mind. While circumstances may limit some of your usual healthy habits, there are still plenty of ways to care for yourself. Get enough exercise and sleep, eat well

B.     Reach out: Since the world got hit by coronavirus, lockdown has isolated us from the people we usually see daily. But connecting with friends and family when you are going through tough times can help ease stress, boost your mood, and make sense of all the change and disruption. Instead of having that feeling of; Oh! I am facing this problem alone; you can draw strength and build resilience from having others to lean on. The people you reach out to do not need to have answers to the problems you are facing; they just need to be willing to listen to you without judging. 

C.      Look for purpose: These days, so many terrible and heartbreaking stories make the news headlines, and this can overwhelm some of us. By pursuing activities that bring purpose and meaning to your life, you can prevent them from overwhelming you, and maintain your identity. Everyone is different so we all have different ways of experiencing purpose and meaning. Do not limit yourself by others’ expectations; pursue activities that are important to you and add satisfaction to your life.

D.    Save up Money: Never be caught stranded, ensure to save money wherever you are. There is nothing as satisfying as knowing that your saving would help you out when times are critical. Always have a back up plan and know that you are responsible for yourself.
