Words of encouragement to all who come across this article ...
And this too shall pass! We have survived Y2K, 9-11, swine flu, mad cow disease and the recession to name a few.
We are all leaders in many ways: of our home, children, clients, team, place of work, community, business, & family... We can chose how we respond to this crisis so choose to be the voice of reason and a ray of sunshine. This is a scary time and I encourage you to continue to be the leaders you are.
Here are some resourceful links to help you, a family member or a friend navigate these unchartered waters.
Control what you can, which is your attitude, effort and energy. Stay calm in a sea of chaos and present multiple solutions, perspectives and points of view. Just like during the recession, others may continue to panic, be stressed, worry and you can help them in re-directing the anxiousness of just one person.
This is a great time to do any of the following:
Increase self-care to stay healthy and positive; lean into podcasts and books for inspiration
Plug into positive and uplifting material
Practice gratitude to offset fear
Stay Healthy and practice "Social Distancing"
