Despite the chaos and uncertainty around us, we still have a choice.
Now that the PM has announced a state of National Emergency we are now being forced to self-isolate and exercise social distance - to not socialise, not go to work, not send our kids to school, not travel, not go outside unless absolutely necessary. It is unprecedented, it is the unknown and it is scary. We don’t know how long for or how many of the people we love will be affected or even lose their lives.
With all this uncertainty we are unable to meet our basic human needs, one of which is certainty itself. We need to know we have security, job security, financial security to know we are loved. We also like familiarity it’s why we like routine and habits are so hard to break. Nothing about this situation is familiar. As anxiety and fear grip the nation, it is more important than ever to manage our mindset and find new ways to meet our needs.
Despite the chaos and uncertainty around us, we still have a choice. We can choose to be at the mercy of our environment and our feels or we can choose to take control of our thoughts and make the best of a bad situation.
Now more than ever we need to choose option two. If for no other reason than anxiety has a massively detrimental effect on our immune system, something we really can’t afford right now.
I hope you have found this helpful if you have any questions or would like help on managing your mental state during this time please get in touch.
