  • See the opportunities in the challenges. 
That's what we're called  to do. 
You may have read #growth is hard,  it comes in the tough times in challenges. 
There are so many quotes out there reminding us that  while it's hard , it's for our greater good. 
Well now it's tough,  it's challenging. 
So this is where we step up and really apply what we've read so many times.
Thanks to @jackcanfield_official

  • These are certainly strange times.
We could sit in fear and worry or we can choose to give our thoughts and attention to all  that we can do once this passes. 
I for  one am enjoying imagining the next time I get to have a coffee with my friends, or the chance to fly and see family and perhaps even plan another travel destination  with my family. I'll look fwd to going to an event,  a concert,  a social gathering. 
There's many things I'm really looking fwd to doing that I perhaps took for granted. 
What are you most looking fwd to doing or resuming? 
What will you appreciate more after this?

  • Limited external places to go right now,  so why not focus on who you are. 
Focus on the internal  YOU. 
What habits would you like to kick to the kerb?
What thoughts would you like to expel from  your mind?
What changes can you start to adopt when interacting with your partner, your children,  your family,  your friends?

This is your golden  opportunity to self reflect not on judgement but in OPPORTUNITY 
You have more time than ever and there's no better time spent than on your biggest investment - YOU

  • So need this today.  Nothing makes you feel more alive than getting out in nature to see how blessed we truly are. 
Our  kids need this too. Get them outside focused on what's really important. Teach them to be present. 
Remember that what we choose to focus on WILL expand in our reality.

  • Out of this situation there are so many opportunities.
Use them to your advantage. 
Find and do the things you say you want if only you had time. 
Well now you have more time. *Read that book
*Learn something new
*Reflect on who you are in your life... what changes can you start to make on you. *meditate
*enjoy quality time with your family
*bake
*create
*enjoy your own company
*write your goals *get finances in order/super/insurances
*declutter
*listen to music

What will you do to take advantage of the extra time you have?

See the opportunities,  look for the positives and you will  surely  find them

  • These are interesting times but please do not let your mental health go by the wayside. 
Keep up your strategies that work for you
Limit your media time
Limit time with people who only talk doom and gloom
Find something positive  to focus on
Listen to uplifting music
Know what you can control
Find humor 
Be aware but don't overdo the influx of information. 
Stay positive. 
Keep up your positive self talk
Rely on what's worked in the past
