Coronavirus quarantine: How to deal with Stress in times of uncertainty?
You might think I’m crazy, but I think that the times that we are living are fascinating! Yes, they are pack with stress, change of routine, uncertainty, sickness, and even death. But at the same time, it is one of the best times to GROW!
It’s almost like we were stripped of all the noise in our life. The work, the routine, the shopping, the going out, and we were taken back to basics.
For many, this can be extremely stressful, mostly because we don’t know how the future will look like. And uncertainty can be one of the trickiest feelings to shake out of our system.
So, what do we do about it? How do we deal with the stress and the uncertainty of the future?
The simple answer is we change the perspective! But in practice, I believe there are few things we can do that can help us with this.
Take advantage of the TIME:
Probably you have now more time at home and with your loved ones that you ever have had before. As a father, I never had spent this much quality time with my kids and wife. Mostly because I had been at work.
Having to be at home has given me an amazing opportunity to see my kids growing day by day. Connecting with them on a deeper level and learn from them to enjoy the moment and have fun. That is what kids do, right!
You probably also have hobbies or things to learn and do that you wished in the past you had the time for. Now you do! Get into it! Study, research, learn and in no time you will start to feel a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.
Focus on Personal Growth:
Because there are fewer outside distractions this is an amazing time to discover yourself. Dive into your own feelings, dedicate time to your well-being, process the new emotions rising up, set new goals for the future. It is an incredible time to check with yourself what do you really want and what kind of life do you want to live.
Also, focusing on Personal Growth is the best way we can contribute to this global situation. By working with ourselves and becoming our best version is the only way that we will be of service for the future to come. We have to be well, strong and grounded in order to give to others.

Build a new path:
If your future income is being threatened and you don’t know if you will be able to go back to your previous job or business. This is a great moment to start a new path.
Personally, I believe that this global situation is and will keep increasing the amount of business that is done online. Everything that we can learn related to how to make a living online will be extremely helpful in the future.
Not so long ago I started this process “coincidentally”. I found a company that has an amazing educational platform and community to help others to start their Online Business.

I hope you find these tips inspiring and that will help you change your perspective to make the most out of this time.
