If your mind feels like it’s on a freakin’ train ride, you’re not alone. We’re all living through this crazy out-of-control pandemic for the first time together (but also totally alone) and it’s making us feel intense emotions. But when fear, anxiety, sadness, loneliness, and anger pop up in your head there are things you can do to stop the insanity. Dr. John Delony shares five concrete steps you can take to still your mind and calm down:
- Recognize what you can control, and let everything else go
- Make a plan for your day, every day
- Manage your stress, loneliness and sleep
- Protect your relationships
- Find ways to serve
You can’t control what happens tomorrow, but you can control how you respond to today. Remember, Hope is greater than Fear, and being calm is contagious.
Another thing you can learn to control is your money. That’s why we’re offering a FREE trial of Ramsey+, an all-access membership that gives you everything you need to budget, pay off debt, and begin building wealth.
