Here is a list of some ideas that I am practicing at home with my family. These things are more true now than ever before!
Mindset is everything. Stay positive everyone!
Before you read through the list, consider this quote from Dr Wayne Dyer:
“When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.”
1. Connect with Team Energy
– Communicate with those who lift you up, not drag you down and avoid the energy vampires!
– Communicate with loved ones and friends via FaceTime, Skype or online video calls.
– Increase Communication, decrease anxiety.
2. Adapt and Overcome
– Get creative with new ways to train, work and exercise.
3. Gratitude Changes Attitude
– Focus on your blessings not your burdens.
– Make a list or bring to mind things that you’re grateful for.
4. Get Real
– See the situation as it is. Don’t make it worse or better that it is. See it as it is.

7. Stay Present

8. Switch off & change the conversation

– Take time for you.
9. Have Fun
