Tips on Mental  Resiliency

  1. Self-care. Take time to relax. Mindfulness meditation can reduce stress, anxiety, and it boosts feel-good emotions. 
  2. Before getting out of bed, thank happy thoughts. Try to identify something positive in your life.
  3. As you get ready to sleep at night, think about the positive moments that happened that day, be grateful for the things that happened right 
  4. Stay connected. Continue calling family and friends. Use FaceTime, email your family. Write someone a love letter or a thank you letter.
  5. Have a routine. Routine keeps our schedule in order. It decreases our feelings of anxiety. It gives us control when we have a routine in life. It gives us a sense of normalcy. Wake up at the same time every day and go to bed at the same time every day. 
  6. Gratitude journal. Write a list of things that you’re grateful for. Look back on your lists when things are tough. You can highlight these lists that you are grateful for during challenging times.
  7. Start a new habit but go slow. Use short-term goals. Instead of running 20 miles, set a goal of running 2 miles per week and slowly increase your mileage. Short-term goals are doable. This helps you gain control of life.
