How to Stay Positive in Uncertain Times

How are you managing during this “interesting” time?

In my household, we are heading into week two of social distancing and for an extrovert like me, it has been challenging at times. I’ve only had one melt down so far!!! Yikes!! What about you? Are you managing okay?

Here are two strategies that I’d like to share with you as they have been working for me:

Keeping it Positive: I am limiting my exposure to negative news and focussing on podcasts and Nextflix shows that are positive, humorous and lift my spirits.

  • Podcast recommendation: Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend. It is absolutely hilarious!
  • Netflix recommendation: Restaurants on the Edge. Since I love both traveling and food, this delightful show takes us around the world while we are all stuck at home.

Keeping it Productive: We all define “productive” differently. What does it mean for you? It could be doing an on-line yoga class, cleaning your cupboard, calling a friend you haven’t connected with for a while or working on a project that has been sidelined for some time.

Now let’s focus on leading during this unprecedented time.

Happy reading. Happy Leading.

P.S. On Tuesday March 24 and Tuesday March 31st I will be featured on Close Up Radio. I’ll be sharing strategies to become an extraordinary leader, even under the most stressful conditions.

Here is the link.

Join me for some inspiration! I promise that I will be keeping it positive and productive!
