If you’re struggling right now, here are a few fundamentals to help you along the road from languishing to flourishing.
Make sure you are getting enough sleep. It is very tough to make good choices in your day or cope well if you haven’t had a good night’s sleep.
The same goes for eating – make sure you eat well so you can function at your best throughout the day.
Another piece is connection. Find connection with friends and family and be intentional about it. It doesn’t even need to be with lots of friends, just a friend or two that you can connect with.
And finally, we have lots of areas of our life right now where we don’t have a lot of control. Feeling “out of control” damages our sense of independence and confidence. It’s important to have moments where we can find some autonomy in our life.
Routine and structure are incredibly important for a person’s sense of control.
You can exercise control in how you run your day, how you engage in a fun activity, or how you connect with people, by planning your day and sticking to a schedule.
