Are you wondering what you can do during these uncertain times? Then stick around.
Whether you want to Netflix, or be productive right now that’s an individual choice. However, because of what we’re going through collectively one thing is for certain that we will need to reinvent ourselves going forward.
Why? Well, watch till the end to find out or listen.
Hi and welcome to Up It and Action-Ables podcast. My name’s Paden. I’m a performance life coach and the CEO of Up It.
In this episode, let’s talk about what are the major areas of your life that you need to be evaluating and focussing on right now.
This pandemic besides the obvious and scary health implication, has also meant a loss of jobs and continued income for a lot of people. This is reason enough to take the time to think about how we’re spending our time, and also what we should be doing in order to grow and reinvent ourselves.
Several non-essential businesses have been affected and some have even gone under. This means that a lot of people’s livelihood has been affected. If you’re one of those people who’s lucky to have their jobs and WFH option then you’re truly lucky and you need to be asking yourself whether this will continue. I know that sounds scary.
Ask yourself whether your company and your job is secure. And right now will be a great time to ask whether you should be looking at additional sources of income. Right now it would a smart thing to do and also a necessary thing to think about your investments, how you’re spending your money and being extremely mindful of it.
However, this will depend largely on your interest, the willingness to put in time and effort, because making money isn’t easy. But if that is something you want to think about right now will be a great time to consider that.
If you’re a business owner, then you need to be doing one thing for sure right now and that is to sell people what they need.
If you can’t change your business or product, you should be at least changing the way you talk about your business and offer your audience what they need right now.
So you need to be willing to pivot and create a strategy that works for you in these times. It’s a given that you’re going to loose clients however, don’t be short sighted, instead focus on your audience and make sure you’re there to serve your audience right now rather than just only thinking about making money.
The next thing you need to be focussing on is your emotional well-being. These are trying times, it’s natural to feel stressed, to get into arguments but it’s also a choice. A choice that you can make.If you choose to pay attention to your emotions, and about find out ways to handle stress you’ll come out of this thing much stronger!
The third thing to consider is our spiritual development. Before I sound like I’m asking you to go join a cult.
Allow me to explain. Take a couple of minutes and think about what we as humans are going through and the topic of mortality hits home, doesn’t it? Whether you believe in the existence of a god or not what we’re doing with our lives matter even if it doesn’t feel that way. So it’s a great time to think about how you want to spend your life, your skills.
The fourth thing to concentrate upon are your social relationships. Especially now, people are looking for ways to feel connected so make it a priority to call and to stay in touch with your friends because once this is over and it will be, you’ll be left with relationships that you took the time to nourish or you would have lost out on relationships. It’s completely up to you.
And the last thing is your physical well-being. Now more than ever, you have to extremely careful of what you consume, stay away from junk food, sugar and take the time to exercise so the exercise so that you can maintain your good health.
So these are the major areas of your life that you need to concentrating and improving upon right now.
And while there’s nothing wrong in netflixing and watching hours of movies, we can also be mindful of what’s happening to our lives as we know it.
Getting used to a new normal, is going to happen whether we like it or not it is going to forced upon us or we can take the time to be mindful and be better prepared for it. Either way we need to adapt and it gets a lot better if we think about things and prepare for them, don’t you agree?
