How can we be better each day? How can we work on self in order to be there for others who matter to us? How can we work on self to be there for ourselves when we need it most?
In times of uncertainty, we are challenged to think differently about what is possible. If we are not careful, we can easily cave into constricting thoughts that limit our ability to focus on options and possibilities available to us during difficult times.
In times of uncertainty, we can let fear and anxiety creep into our lives by taking hold of the way we allow ourselves to think. The choices we make today, in this moment, are what matter most to us and the people who need and depend on us the most.
Frame up each day by setting one small goal that is achievable and this will pave the way to setting another goal tomorrow. What's one small thing you've been wanting to do but haven't gotten around to it lately? Maybe it's sending an email to a loved one abroad. Perhaps it's doing some gardening or tidying up your home workspace. Whatever it is, make it achievable and get it done. When we stitch together one personal goal achieved with another and another, it can have a profound impact on our well-being and mental health. And there is no greater time to focus on our well-being and mental health than now.
So, what is your one small personal goal for just today?
