The end of 2020 is drawing near. The whole year has been one big adaptation after another. 2021 is a chance to reflect on what new habits you want to bring into your New Year and what habits and thoughts are old and no longer serve you. Personally I want to leave speaking badly about myself and others in 2020. It never helps me to say I'm not good enough, I’m too this or too that. Your mind is the computer that determines the program that you run on. Enter 2021 with an updated program, one that knows you are powerful and perfectly enough.
Build on the strength you found in 2020, knowing that you can survive and even thrive regardless of the circumstances around you. Lockdown highlighted that thriving spiritually may not look great on social media but it is still valid. Say no to moulding to fit the environment and instead be the change you want to see. Start thinking of goals personal to you don't worry if they seem too big or unrealistic keep them close to your chest and start working whilst the spotlight is off and next year will be your breakthrough.
Mental Health at Home:
*Create a schedule, times can be flexible, but it gives you a daily purpose
*Have a relax day or two, you can’t produce from a empty cup
*Get dressed in the morning and read a scripture, listen to morning motivation or put on your favourite song (that one that makes you sing and dance along)
*Schedule an hour to think things over or to catch up news, then no more!
*Video call friends and family to stay connected
*Go for the 1 daily walk we’re allowed, look at the birds and trees, appreciate the peace
*Contact creditors to make them aware if you have been affected by the current health crisis (email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want support with this).
