Don’t take anything for granted

"As a leader of a large organization of people, I’m usually running at about 200 percent and wouldn’t have it any other way. A couple of weeks ago, however, I lost complete control over my energy levels and almost could not function."

The importance of Social Health

"Maintaining good social health during this time gives you a network that will support you through this time of change. And help you build resilience. Staying connected with your team will ultimately determine your success."

Take care of your health: Five tips to build resilience

Resilience is the capacity to cope with and become stronger as a result of experiencing and dealing with difficult events. Strengthening resilience combines building inner strength with applying personal strength to challenging situations.

  1. Write down important thoughts and ideas. By writing what you want from a situation, you have a better chance of achieving it.
  2. Always imagine everything positively. If your imagination is positive and pictures a positive outcome, your brain reacts in a more positive way with better outcomes.
  3. Practice positive self-affirmation. Positive self-talk impacts your motivation and is key to influencing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
  4. Build commitment, trust, and engagement with others. These behaviors reinforce positive attributes such as attentiveness, flexibility, reliability, and the ability to resolve conflicts.
  5. Reinforce a new habit or behavior as frequently as you can. When you wish to adopt new habits that strengthen your resilience, you need to reinforce them several times.

Maintaining positive mental health: Five tips for emotional well-being

In many ways, mental health is just like physical health: everybody has it, and we need to take care of it. We all have times when we feel down, stressed, or frightened.

  1. Get healthy distance and manage stress. Step back and change perspectives, and find ways to cope with stress.
  2. Do something you enjoy daily. Make time for doing things you enjoy, such as going for a walk, reading a book, meeting friends virtually, and so on.
  3. Take care of your body’s basic needs. Eat and sleep well, drink lots of water, and exercise regularly.
  4. Recognize when you are not feeling good. Watch warning signals, such as sleeping disorders, physical complaints, and a change in attitude.
  5. Ask for help when you feel worried or overwhelmed. Seek help as soon as possible.
