We are in the midst of some unprecedented times, and it seems like everything has been turned on its head. The reality is that we are dealing with scary news coming at us from all angles, and every single person is being affected by this pandemic. Let’s look at a few ways to find purpose instead of panic, so that we can get through this time and come out stronger on the other side.
Tips to Find Purpose In Scary Times
There’s no doubt about it – there’s a lot of panic out there. But all of us have a choice: to live in a state of panic or to find purpose within uncertainty. We can’t change the world, but we can choose to control our mindset – and that’s where our power lies. We can choose purpose instead of panic.
Along with all the bad news, we are seeing a lot of good news that gets swept under the rug. We see daily reports on advances in medicine and technology, people sharing music and virtual time together, and many who got sick and survived – all of this happening in real-time. The greatest minds on our planet are working together for solutions to the virus – no matter what the background, everyone’s working together with the common purpose of getting us out of this pandemic. That’s something worth celebrating. This is where we can choose hope instead of panic. Don’t discount the power of humanity.
Structure, On Purpose
Now that one day seems to pour into the next, we need a daily structure more than ever. Structure creates routine, so it makes sense to maintain a purposeful schedule every day to stay productive, sane, and keep moving forward with intention. From breakfast to dinner, keep your routines consistent and practical.
Remember your influence
No matter where you are, you have people around you that are impacted by your attitude and your response. If you want to have a purpose-driven mindset, it makes sense to remember your influence. Now’s the time to reach out and help people get through a tough time by providing them value. Information or support that serves them well, rather than stirring up conflict or misinformation, is the best course of action.
I encourage you to choose hope, find purpose and make a plan so that you can weather this storm while staying positive. After all, your mindset is yours to own, and you might as well choose a purpose-driven, optimistic attitude that has a good influence on those around you.
